Speckled Egg Cake Pops

Aren’t speckled eggs so super cute? I thought I’d make them and dress them with delicate twine bows, in celebration of Spring and Easter. Here’s to new life!

Why are eggs speckled? (Nerd Alert!)

You’d probably suspect that the speckles serve as some sort of camouflage for the little unhatchlings, right? Actually, National Geographic says the speckles help to make thin egg shells stronger! …I’d like to add that they make eggs cuter! >_^

The secret to speckling dessert eggs – a no mess solution!:

I found a no-mess way to make yummy speckles: vanilla bean seeds!
To seed a vanilla bean
, cut the bean in half, lengthwise. Scrape the inside of the bean with a spoon to be used in your candy melts as in the instructions below.

How to make a speckled egg cake pop

To make speckled egg cake pops, follow this tutorial on how to make cake pops, with a few small differences:

  • After mixing the cake with frosting, roll out small egg-shaped ball, using a small oval cutter of your preference as a guide. This cutter is 5/8″.
  • After applying lollipop sticks to the pop with melts, lightly pinch and roll the top of the oval to get an egg shape.
  • When in the dipping stage, add vanilla bean seeds to the liquid melts.
    Fish out any large chunks and stir so the beans spread evenly throughout the mix.
  • How much vanilla bean? I used the seeds of half a bean for every 6 oz of candy melts.
  • Tie cute bows using colored twine around each stick. Cut a length of twine to tie a small bow, then trim the ends to make sure it’s neat and tiny!

    Hi! These are pretty cute!!! I was wondering if you think I could use like a 1/4 tsp. of coffee grounds in place of the vanilla bean seeds… They certainly wouldn’t be as flavorful, but vanilla beans are a bit outside of my budget (I’m a college student). Would that work, or do you think that would be gross? haha. Thanks for the cute recipe!

    One more question: what is the fondant for? Sorry, I have never done this before so I am a bit confused!

    Hi this is very cute, but I also don’t understand what the fondant is for.

    Hi Amie! Thanks!! <3 I think coffee grounds could totally work if you ground them nice and fine. Great idea! It’ll probably taste good with chocolate cake. ^_^

    It is for throwing out a window or into your mouth. LOL! It was totally a typo. Sorry! (Edit edit edit)… I meant roll a ball from the cake and frosting mix. ^_^

    Hi Rania! Sorry for the typo. I fixed it… I meant to roll a ball from your mixture of cake and frosting! ^_^ Thanks for the heads up!
