Fun Monkey Cake Pop Toppers For Parties

Sock Monkey Cake Pops

My daughter recently turned 10.  Her request was a monkey party.   After looking at invitations online and in local stores most of the invitations we found were more for younger kids or infants than for a tween.  So we came up with the idea to make a “Sock Monkey” party.
Immediately I knew I had to make Sock Monkey Pops!  I have to admit I was a little stumped as to what I was going to do.  I did a quick search on the internet to get inspiration and I found this seller on Etsy “Mom’s Killer Cakes” and fell in love with her Sock Monkey Pops.  I made these ones but if you don’t want to make your own (instructions below) guess what?  You can order directly from her!  I made my monkeys happy with a red smile instead of the big red lips but either way I think they look super cute!
I wanted to do Sock Monkey invitations as well  I couldn’t find what I was looking for and didn’t have the time to make a custom order.  So I went to Michaels Craft Store and bought plain cards, some monkey stickers and printed up my own monkey invitations.

Inside of invitation:
We ordered Sock Monkeys and the red and white straws from Discount Party
I decorated the table with the Monkeys and then the girls got to take them home.
Another idea which I had but we did not end up doing was to make Sock Monkeys.  So in lieu of ordering Sock Monkeys a fun project might be to make them at the party.
These vintage inspired paper straws add a fun festiveness to these pops. I just love these!  They would also be great for Christmas Pops.
The hats are red Sixlet candies.
The first thing I did was to make my shapes using My Little Cupcake’s Ball Shaped Cake Pop Mold.  Then I inserted the straws.
After they were all done I chilled the pops before I dipped in the next step.
I used large confetti dots for the ears.
Insert on each side of the head.
I put a small line of candy melts along the ears to give them a raised effect on the outside, so it would look more like a real ear.
Now dip entire head into your brown chocolate melts.  I didn’t want to make the monkeys too dark so I added some white and yellow melts to the chocolate wafers to lighten up the color.
I used black powder food color to make the eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth.  However, you can use candy melts as well.
Good luck and have fun!
