Cabbage Patch Baby Lollipop Mold

Cabbage Patch Baby Lollipop Mold

I am making Cabbage Patch Babies in lollipop molds for a baby shower. I am going to try and pour chocolate for the first time.


I have bought the molds, and I want it to come out right. I have never done this before, so any and all tips would be appreciated.




Hi Theresa, Congratulations on your first candy molding experience! Don't worry. It really isn't terribly difficult. Are you using colored melts or just regular chocolate?

Doesn't matter really, but if you are using the melts, you can get a little pack of mini paint brushes from the dollar store and use them to "paint" in the details on the Babies faces before filling them the rest of the way with regular chocolate.

One of the main things to keep in mind is not to get water in with the chocolate when you are melting. This causes the chocolate to seize up or go funny. If you are melting it over a double boiler, keep that in mind.

Also, don't overheat the chocolate. If you are melting it in the microwave, stir it every 30 seconds. It may not look melted because chocolate holds its shape a bit. Stir it anyway! :-)

There are more tips and instructions on these pages:

That should answer most of the questions you might have.

I hope the Cabbage Patch Babies come out just the way you like and that the baby shower is lovely. Now, don't forget to come back and show off a photo of your finished lollipops! We want to hear how you went. You can tell us all the details using this form.

Just remember this - Have Fun!!!

cabbage patch chocolate lollipops NEW
by: theresa

I'm going to try these lollipops but I would like to know how to get the rosy cheek look. Do I use pink luster dust after chocolate is hardened and out of the mold..or paint the inside of the mold first. I just don't want that glob look for cheeks. Also the eyes are indented would be hard to paint before pouring chocolate in. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cabbage Patch Molds on Ebay
by: Angie

The only place I've seen the cabbage patch molds is on ebay so far. :) But those sellers have to be getting them from somewhere! :) I don't think you'll get them any cheaper elsewhere though, so you might as well buy them from ebay.

I just finished making these for the first time and I found it easier to paint the eye color before filling the mold. Once I took them out of the mold I took the tip of a brush and with dark chocolate made the pupil. I also noticed a bigger pupil makes them look better that a tiny dot. Hope this helps!

Chocolate Paint for Molds
by: Angie

Hi Jeannie,

You don't use real paint, of course. You just use colored chocolate.

You can tint white chocolate by using special oil colors or you can just get colored chocolate wafers and melt them just as you would regular chocolate.

It really is easy to "paint" in the details of the mold first, let it set, and then fill up the rest of the mold with the background chocolate.

Hope that answers your question and that you'll have a great time giving it a try. Don't forget to come back and show off! :-)

Your idea is great would you mind telling me where to buy the candy molds from I would also love to try to make them myself. JERAYAD27atYAHOO.COM




I usually recommend Candyland Crafts and One Stop Candle for molds, but they don't carry these particular ones.

Believe it or not, you can find cabbage patch molds on eBay!
