Cake Pops

Is it just me or were Cake Pops unheard of a few years ago? Well if you still haven’t heard of cake pops, they’re essentially a round, bite sized piece of cake popped on the end of a lollipop stick and decorated with whatever you fancy.

 Maybe with the fast paced life of people today, it’s the convenience of just having one as a treat on the go which gained these Cake Pops a place into many café shop windows. 

Dark chocolate & Orange and Strawberry white chocolate flavoured Cake Pops

What you will need –
  • A Piping bag with cake batter
  • Cake pop mould
  • Cake pop sticks/lollipop sticks
  • Chocolate for decoration
Cake Pop mould and Sticks £1 each from Poundland

After the Cake Pops have cooled, dip each stick into chocolate and insert into the cake pop to make it secure - The chocolate acts a glue and leave to cool

An upside down colander makes an excellent stand for the Cake Pops to dry
Wrapped in Cellophane, these make a nice party snack
For the Chocolate Orange ones, I used the zest of an orange and sprinkled it onto the melted chocolate. This gives a nice subtle zesty flavour to cut through the rich dark chocolate.

For the Strawberry white chocolate ones, I put a tiny drop of red food colouring and a few drops of Strawberry essence and then sprinkled it with edible pink glitter.

These are perfect for occasions and children's birthdays/parties as the colours make them cute and appealing. Another great idea for children's parties would be to get them to decorate the Cake Pops themselves. Messy yet fun!

I hope you enjoyed this post and give them a go yourself. Let me know how they turn out!
