Halloween Mummy Cake Pops | #HalloweenTreatsWeek

These mummy cake pops are a fun and totally cute way to celebrate Halloween. They are a sweet treat and a huge hit with the kids. 

This post was created for #HalloweenTreatsWeek. I received some swag from our sponsor. As always, all opinions are mine. 

Halloween Mummy Cake Pops



These little mummies are made with yellow cake mixed with vanilla frosting and coated in a vanilla candy coating. They are perfect for a Halloween party, and, wrapped in cellophane and tied up with a bow, make adorable party favors. 

This cake pop recipe is small batch. I made a little yellow cake in two four-inch cake pans, broke it into crumbles, and mixed it with about 1 1/2 cups of vanilla buttercream frosting.

While I made the cake from scratch, I actually used pre-made frosting from the grocery store. You also have my permission to use store bought cake if you like and save your energy for decorating the mummies. 

Or.... you can go all out and make everything from scratch for a super gourmet version. You can also use any flavored cake and frosting you like for these mummies. For my Monster Cake Pops, I used a mini cake mix from Ghirardelli. 


How to make these Halloween mummy cake pops:

First, make the cake and crumble it into tiny pieces. Next, mix it with just enough of any frosting you like to form a moldable "dough." 

After that, scoop the dough with a cookie scoop and form it into ovals. Chill the uncoated cake balls in the refrigerator. 

Next, melt the candy coating and dip lollypop sticks into it and stick them into the cake ovals. Dip the ovals into the candy coating, tap off any excess coating, and then let the cake pops dry on a styrofoam block before drizzling them with more candy coating "mummy wrap" and adding some eyes.

You'll need: 

About 16 to 20 uncoated cake balls, shaped into ovals.

About 10 ounces of white candy coating

16 to 20 lollypop sticks

Styrofoam block (you can find these in craft stores)

Four inch cake pans

Oil-based candy food coloring

Squeeze bottle or decorating bags


Halloween Mummy Cake Pops ingredients and tools



I preferred using the squeeze bottle for piping the mummy wrapping because I'm not that good at controlling decorating bags. 

To add the eyes, I added some green food coloring to the leftover coating and uses a toothpick to drop some of the coating onto the cake pops. 

Aren't these the cutest?
