Cake Pops have just started to take off here in the UK. They have however been around for quite sometime. I first came across them on one of my favourite baking blogs Bakerella.
This lovely lady makes the most delicious things and sadly at the moment is really quite ill. Hopefully she will be feeling better soon and baking up more tasty treats for us all.
So what is a cake pop ?
Basically a cake ball made from cake and frosting on a stick. I am making 120 for the Christening and thought I would share with you how I make mine. You can use any flavour Cake / frosting. Let your imagination run wild.
You will need Cake. Frosting. Candy melts or Chocolate Cake Covering. Lolly sticks. Polystyrene block. Large Bowl. Spoon and Jug.
I used Vanilla Cake and mint Frosting.
Crumble the cake in to fine crumbs.
Mix Frosting thoroughly with cake.
Take some frosting. Roll into a ball
Do it over and over again.
Melt chocolate in jug in microwave.
Dip end of stick in some chocolate and insert into cake ball.
In one motion. Dip the entire cake pop into the chocolate and remove.
Tap the stick on the side of the jug to remove excess Chocolate.
Place in block until set.
You can add any decorations whilst the Chocolate is still wet.
I want mine to be plain this time.
Bite into this delicious morsel and be delighted with the results.
Cake Love on a stick, it does not get better than that.
Good night xx
