I had an order for 40 cake pops a few weeks ago. The Mom wanted them for her daughter to pass out on the first day of Dance Camp. I found a ballet slipper and dancer mold online that I purchased. I thought that they were smaller than they were and was just going to put them on a round cake ball. But b/c the size was about 1 7/8" that wouldn't work. So I used an oval fondant cutter and shaped each cake ball into an oval shape. Dipped the cake pop in white chocolate and placed the hot pink ballet slippers/ dancer on. I bagged them and tied each with two strips of hot pink tulle.
I should've placed them in the bucket randomly so both types could be equally seen. But I was so tired by the time I finished that I just squeezed them all in there and just to get it done!!!

|The dancer mold had an oval background to it that I did in white. This is what gave me the idea to use an oval shape cake pop.|
