Cake Pops ~ Baking~

Today my sweet tooth has gotten the better of me and I feel creative so I decided to make CAKE POPS!!!

I love these, they are so cute and also help you with portion control!!!!

I bought a cake pop maker two years ago, it was an impulse buy as it was on sale in Tesco but it was
actually one of my better purchases! I have used it so much, you have baked cakes/pops in under 5 minutes. Which is good as I am quite impatient especially when all I really want is to decorate my creations!!!

You can also bake these using a cake pop mould which you can pick up in dealz, tesco or any cook ware shop.

For the cake pops I first went to the odlums website and got a basic cupcake recipe then I adapted it for a kinda red velvet pop. (a pop of colour when you bite into the pop)

  • 2oz self raising flour (with 2 tsp cocoa powder)
  • 2oz brown sugar
  • 1oz marg
  • 1oz nutella hazelnut spread
  • 1 egg
  • Red food colouring
Mix it all up in a bowl and spoon into the cake pop maker or cake pop mould
Bake for 5 minutes in the oven or as per box instruction on the cake pop maker.

(Hint I grease my cake pop maker with cooking spray so they pop out easily)

After letting them cool time to decorate!!!

I melted chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water, then rolled the pops around in it. Then before they dry I poured sprinkles on top, simple.

I got the cake pop sticks and the cake pop stand in dealz. I also got silicone cake pop moulds before I got the maker.  Dealz also do a good cake decorating range like the red sugar and the white chocolate stars I used.

If you have read my It's all in the presentation post you may know I like presentation and gift wrapping so I got my trusty cellophane and tape and set to work! I cut the cellophane into squares and taped then up, easy.

Hope you like then and are inspired to make some cake pops of your own! Please share any pictures of your pops or feel free to comment!
