    Corn Popper Inspired:

By Hostess with the Mostess

Add some fun to the dessert table with a treat display inspired by one of your child’s favorite toys! This easy & playful “Cake Popper” mimics the look of the popular Fisher-Price® Corn Popper® toy and offers a clever & unexpected way to serve up bite-sized treats. You’ll need a mix of about 16-20 cake balls & pops for the display, so make sure to have extra cake pops or cake balls on hand to serve separately if you’re having a large party.

You’ll Need:

  • 12” Acrylic Cake Dome
  • 12” Styrofoam Circle (Available at Craft/Baking Stores)
  • 12” Plastic Cake Plate (Available at Craft/Baking Stores)
  • Yellow Felt
  • 16-20 Cake Balls & Cake Pops (in a Mix of Yellow, Red, Blue, Purple, and Green)


1. Stack the styrofoam circle on top of the plastic cake plate.
2. Cut a small circle of yellow felt and glue it to the center of the styrofoam circle.

3. Arrange the cake balls on the foam, and insert a few cake balls on sticks (or cake pops) to mimic the look of a Corn Popper® toy in action. Trim the cake pop sticks as necessary to fit well under your cake dome. DIY Tutorial: Birthday Ball Garland

4. Place the acrylic cake dome on top of the cake ball/cake pop arrangement and display at the party until ready to serve!
