This Ninja Turtle Cake Pops tutorial is courtesy of our contributor Deanna…Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with roses and chocolate candies! We don’t celebrate it much, my husband says he doesn’t need a day to gift me flowers…(say that to my 4 empty vases!) No, kidding. We spent the day together, and went to dinner at the same place as our first date…Taco Bell! hah!
I wasn’t really sure what to do this month for a tutorial, but I had a rather big order for TMNT cake pops, and figured I would turn it into a tutorial…two birds, one stone kinda thing. So here are your heroes in a half shell!
Ninja Turtle Cake Pops – What You’ll Need:
- cake pop dough
- cake pop sticks
- green, white, red, purple, orange, and blue chocolate
- black edible marker
- cake pop stand
Ninja Turtle Cake Pops Tutorial:
Shape your cake pop dough.
Dip your stick into the green chocolate, then into that cake pop. Fill in any cracks with chocolate. Let harden.
Dip entire cake pop into the green chocolate and tap off any extra. Place cake pop into your stand and let harden.
Dab on some eyes, I noticed I liked them bigger and kind of in a bean shape.
Taking your edible marker (which can be found in most craft or baking supply stores) give your turtles some pupils.
Take blue, red, purple, or orange chocolate and (using your toothpick) draw on the mask. Drag the chocolate all the way around the cake pop.
Going back in with your edible marker, draw on a smile.
Stick the tip of your toothpick into the red chocolate and add a heart-shaped tongue.
Now what’s TMNT without some deep dish action? Since I had to make these pizza slices anyways I snapped a few photos of what I did…it’s just like making a real pizza!

Thank you, Crystal! Deanna has such a great talent with cake pops.
I was wondering how do you keep your chocolate from peaking while your decorating areas such as the eyes.
LOVE YOUR CAKEPOPS!!
hi bri! When I do small details with chocolate I add some crisco or oil to thin it out and I always use a tooth pick to spread it even
Hope this helps!
