How to Make Pokémon Toy Cookies

How to Make Pokémon Toy Cookies

Pokémon Toy Cookies with a surprise inside is a Pokémon GO! for the Trainers attending your Pokémon party.

And it’s a legendary ending as a party favor.

When I began to design these gingerbread  domed Pokéball cookies, my main catch was to hide a mini Pokémon for the Trainers to find once the battle was over.

And since I’m a sweet blogger and GlamMa (who has no sugar limits) the Pokémon Toy Cookies as a party favor needed to be made in advance.

‘Cause my Trainer had battle station expectations for Pokéball Cupcake Toppers, Pokémon Cupcakes and a sculpted Shiny Gengar Cake at this Pokéstop.

To achieve the status as a ‘Mega GlamMa’ in my Trainer’s eyes, the cookies needed to be a ‘no-fail’ treat and this meant before making the cookies for the party, a sample cookie was designed, a storage technique was verified and most importantly, a taste test of the finished cookie.

‘Pika Pika!’ It was a Pokémon GO!

And you’ll ‘catch ’em all’ in the step-by-step video below…

How to Make a Pokémon Cake Pop Stand

How to Make a Pokémon Cake Pop Stand

Arriving one by one, the young boys stopped to admire the Gengar cake and then their palms reached out to touch the Pokémon Cake Pop Stand to give the pokéball a moment of reverential silence. Snatching Pikachu Peeps from the crown of the pokéball, the boys all gathered around in wonderment.

The Pokémon pilgrimage continued until one wide-eyed boy with awe in his voice looked up at me and asked, ‘Is that a real Poké Ball?’

Yeah, I know. As a GlamMa with a warped sense of humor, this was an invitation to really up my Pokémon game.

Seriously, some of these guys still believe in Santa.

What was a GlamMa to do? I was stuck somewhere between a Pokéball and the Great Ball in Pokémon land with the Pokémon Cake Pop Stand.

Luckily for me, I was swiped by a Pokémon berry when the sugar from the Pikachu Peeps began to surge through the dudes’ bloodstreams and then someone outside shouted in glee, ‘Bouncy house, bouncy house!!’

Saved by a Bounce-Bounce.

Darn….

How to Make Pokémon Cupcakes

How to Make Pokémon Cupcakes

Oh me. Oh my. It’s a blissful sugar high when you bite into these round (yep, I said round) Pokémon Cupcakes. Encased in a crunchy candy shell, this pokéball is layered and filled with a dark chocolate cake surrounded with a buttercream icing.

It’s a ‘cram ya face’ guarantee to be a Pokémon GO! for your next Pokémon Party and with this tutorial I’ll show you how simple it is to make these pokéballs.

Yours truly has a Pokémon obsessed grandson with a group of buddies who are fixated around the status of evolving the thousands of little creatures that pop-up on the phone to be caught and eventually hatch to grow into more powerful beasts.

And It’s difficult to impress Pokémon enthusiasts but with these Pokémon Cupcakes, I am proud to proclaim that I’ve evolved my Pokémon status to….Mega GlamMa.

And here’s where to find the supplies for the Pokémon Cupcakes: Silicone Mold, Cookie Cutters, Plunger Cutters & the RV hand grater.

The Small Batch Chocolate Cupcake recipe is perfect for these Pokémon Cupcakes and buttercream topped cupcakes too. This recipe was created by me for smaller parties & celebrations.

And when using King Arthur’s Measure-for-Measure flour the cupcakes are equally as decadent to make Gluten-Free. I love to make a batch of gluten-free for the guests who are so gracious to celebrate the occasion, yet the majority of the time can’t enjoy party sweets.

The recommended cocoa for the recipe is King Arthur’s Black Cocoa. I’m in love! It makes the BEST chocolate desserts that require cocoa…EVER! You’ll be in love, too.

I’m also in love with Lauren Kitchen’s Buttercream recipe and if there is any icing (we lick the bowl for proof checkout Instagram) that’s leftover…freeze. Just use Google. Trust me, cakers abound are on the LK Buttercream train.

For an excellent resource on modeling chocolate and candy clay swing by Kara’s Couture Cakes.

Mosey on over to the tutorial, DIY Wooden Cupcake Stand, on how to display these Pokéballs for your party.

Pokémon Chocolate Cupcake Recipe Yum
Gluten or Gluten-free, this rich, dark chocolate batter for these small batch of cupcakes makes life a little bit sweeter. To make these cupcakes Gluten-Free, use King Arthur's Measure for Measure flour. (No other gluten-free flour has been tested.) If using the recommended flour the only slight difference will be with the doming of the cupcakes. ~Recipe by: BB Bakes Sugar Art
