The bun is back! This rocket man is an all-time classic – just don’t go baking his heart.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 Body pops
200g yellow candy melts
small, microwave-safe plastic bowl
toothpicks
30g red sugarpaste
1/4 teaspoon gum tragacanth
rejuvenator spirit
paintbrushes
palette
black blossom tint
white blossom tint
pink blossom tint
gold lustre dust
polystyrene block

Method

  1. Make 6 boy body pops with red bodies by following the steps in the body pop recipe. Set aside to dry.
  2. Prepare the yellow candy melts in the plastic bowl according to the instructions on the packet.
  3. Dip Elton’s head into the yellow candy melts to create his hair. Use a toothpick to add texture. Repeat for the remaining pops and set aside to dry.
  4. To make Elton’s famous glasses, knead the gum tragacanth into the sugarpaste to make it easier to shape. Roll two small balls and flatten them down to achieve a round pair of glasses, and fix into place with a little of the left over melted candy melts. Repeat for the remaining pops.
  5. Mix a small amount of the black blossom tint with a few drops of rejuvenator spirit and, using a fine brush, fill in Elton’s glasses, and add his collar and jacket to all six pops. Add a small amount of white blossom tint to the mixture to define the lapels.
  6. Add his lips with pink blossom tint, mixing as above. Prepare some gold lustre dust with a few drops of rejuvenator spirit, and finish your pops off with a classic Elton giant cross. Set aside to dry completely in a polystyrene block.
