When I was looking around for methods to use spoons for cake pops, I found lots of photos of completed pops without any instructions. This is how I created these spoons full of sugar for our Mary Poppins party.
These are by far the most comprehensive instructions I’ve found for making cake pops, so start there with your preparation.
Once you have the cake pop mix, form the mix into balls and place them on a cookie sheet. Freeze balls for 15 minutes.
Shape the lightly frozen balls to match the spoons you are using.
Place the spoon shapes back on the cookie sheet and place in the fridge while you melt the candy melts.
Melt 12 oz candy melts with 1 tsp shortening. Dip the shaped ball lightly into the candy melts and position on spoon. You just want a small amount of the candy melt on the underside of your shape. This should help the ball stay attached to the spoon for dipping.
Return the spoons to the fridge for 15 minutes for the melts to harden. Then, let them sit out on counter 5 minutes.
Press the spoons into the melted candy melts (reheat as needed) and twist slightly to cover the edges. Gently lift the spoon from melts. You may need to swipe away any trailing candy melt with your finger. Immediately, sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles.
Let sit to harden.
Store in an air tight container. I made mine 5 days ahead of time and they were great!
