These pops will be paired up with Phillies Hall of Fame Club Seats- Phils v. Marlins (8/28/11) and will be up for auction tonight at the Phillies Block Party to benefit Kisses for Kyle. (click on the picture to see a larger image of the pops)
There are 48 pops total, so here's the breakdown: each player on the 40-man roster is represented, as well as manager Charlie Manuel and the Phillie Phanatic, and six pops with the Phillies "P". I think these are my favorite cake pop tags I've made so far!
I had so much fun making these, I decided to do a tutorial so you can make your favorite sports-team hat pops too! Check it out after the jump ("Read More").
|Place your cutter slightly off-center on the candy disc. The larger the amout you leave out, the larger the hat brim will be. It's up to you how big of a hat brim you'd like.|
|After you have all of your hat brims cut out, you can use the remaining pieces to melt with the rest of your candy. Even though I was making 48 hats, I made 50 hat brims... always good to have extra, just in case.|
|To attach the brim, dip the curved edge in your melted candy....|
|Tap the excess chocolate off so that it drips off of the back of the hat - this way the hat looks even in the front, which will be the main focal point of these pops.|
|And there you have it, a red baseball hat!|
|After the pops have dried, you can add your teams logo. I used a toothpick to draw on the Phillies famous "P" logo.|

|Zoom-shot of the tags - just like the players jerseys!|
I hope you liked my first cake pop tutorial! If any parts are confusing, or you'd like more clarification on a certain step, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy cake poppin'... and Go Phillies!
