Have some fun with your cake pops when you make this festive Bald Eagle Cake Pops recipe!
In my search for a fun 4th of July treat I came across these amazingly cute Bald Eagle Cake Pops treats on Familyfun.com (which, if you don’t subscribe to that magazine and you have kids, you totally should, it’s a treasure trove of fun ideas every month).
Now, I don’t have anything against marshmallows, but I thought these would be much better incarnated as a cake pop. Here’s how you can replicate these amazing little patriotic birdies!

Bald Eagle Cake Pops Recipe
Bald Eagle Cake Pops Recipe!
- 16.25 ounce Betty Crocker White Cake Mix
- 3 Egg Whites
- 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 1/4 cups Water
- 12 ounces White Candy Melts
- 16 ounces White Frosting
- 1/2 cup Shredded Coconut
- 24 Whole Cashews
- 48 Mini Chocolate Chips
- 8.5 ounces Fudge Covered Oreos
- To make the cake balls, bake cake mix as directed on box.
- Allow cake to cool.
- Crumble up cooled cake, and mix with container of store bought frosting.
- Form into balls and place in freezer.
- While cake balls are chilling in the freezer, prepare fudge covered Oreos (I used the single layered ones because that’s what I found, also I think they worked easier than the thicker would have for piercing a hole in the middle).
- I used the pointy end of a cake decorating flower platform tool to carefully pierce a whole in the middle of the cookies, none of them cracked so it worked pretty well. A skewer or anything sharp would probably work just fine.
- After Cake Balls have chilled and firmed up, remove from freezer.
- Melt white candy melts according to package (I thinned mine with a little bit of coconut oil)
- Dip stick into candy melt and then insert into cake ball (this adheres the stick to the cake a little better)
- Dip cake into candy and spin excess off.
- Immediately cover with shredded coconut and quickly slide the pierced cookie onto the stick from the bottom so it can adhere to the ball with the candy melt.
- Use a spare stick to press a large indent where you want the beak and then place the fat end of a whole cashew in the indent (you can first dip the end in a little bit of the candy melt if you want better staying power, but I didn’t seem to have a problem with them falling out either way)
- Press in 2 mini chocolate chips for eyes and let dry. Share with friends and enjoy!
