how do I make an open mouthed shark head cake pop?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've got an order for 2 doz. Shark Head cake pops. I think I can model the head pretty well but I worry that the jaw or upper head might collapse since it is open.

I don't want to dip these and covering all of them in fondant seems too time consuming for the project price.

 

Any ideas from ya'll out there??

Thanks.

Maybe these will give you some ideas:

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

These were great. Thanks for the link. Think I can do them without the actual OPEN mouth now which would make them stable. Thanks again.

I think you are right about the stability of a closed mouth design (vs open mouthed). I've done shaped cake pops with sharp angles and there tends to be a problem with the way the candy drips off of the angle that results in cracked coating.

I made the cake pops and made an executive decision. No more cake pops.

Ugh. I spent as much time on those ridiculous things as I do a beautiful cake or cupcake at no profit at all. Thanks for all of the helpful advice from this great group.

When we looked into selling cake pops I worked out that we would have to charge ~$60/dozen to make a decent profit. If you enjoy making them, you can try setting a higher price based on your labor cost and see how things go.
