Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out May 1, and I can't think of a better way to mark the occasion than with cake. I mean, what isn't made better by a little cake, especially when it's Avengers characters turned into cake pops?

How to make Avengers cake pops

  • Thor's hammer: a rectangular cake pop painted silver
  • Captain America's shield: red, white and blue cake pop topped with a star
  • Hulk: a square cake pop, green and cracked
  • Iron Man: a red cake pop decorated with a core reactor
  • Black Widow: a black cake pop with red black widow's mark


  1. For Thor's hammer: Spray-paint the cake pop silver. Paint a wooden handle with brown chocolate for the handle.
  2. For Captain America's shield: Take a white chocolate-dipped cake pop, and paint red chocolate melt on the top and bottom, leaving the center stripe white. Paint blue chocolate melt in the center of the red. Add 1 large star sprinkle or fondant cutout.
  3. For Hulk: Take a square cake pop dipped in green chocolate melt, and paint on cracks with black food coloring marker.
  4. For Iron Man: Take a red cake pop, paint a yellow circle, and place the core reactor (fondant circle) on top.
  5. For Black Widow: Take a black cake pop, and paint the red chocolate black widow symbol on it.
