Cake Pop Attempts.

Being back home for Christmas meant I could get back to baking. I wanted to try something different, I saw a cake pop mould and thought it would be a great idea to try it out!

Here is the basic recipe for the cake pop mixture:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/ Gas Mark 4
  2. Cream 120g of unsalted butter and 150g of caster sugar until it turns pale and fluffy
  3. Add a tsp of vanilla extract
  4. Add two eggs and mix well
  5. Add half of the 180g self-raising flour and half of the 4 tbsp of milk, then mix well
  6. Repeat, adding the rest of the flour and milk
  7. Pour the mixture equally among the cake pop moulds and bake for 35-45 minutes

 

After the cake pop mixture is baked and cooled, you can now decorate and have fun with it! I had to remind myself that as it was a first attempt, that they weren’t going to be perfect (they certainly were far from perfect).

I melted some milk chocolate in a bowl (you can also use icing sugar) and once the cake pops were securely on a lollipop stick, I dipped them in the melted chocolate.

I had set out a variety of decorations and then after dipping the cake pop in the chocolate, I then dipped it into sprinkles. As a warning, I’ll say be careful of the weight of the decorations as they can cause the cake pop to slide down the stick (see below)!

Cake pops are very messy to make but a lot of fun! I highly recommend at least attempting it.

Tip: I found the sprinkles worked best as the cake pop decorations.

Let me know if you have a go and if it goes better than my attempt!
