We are very excited to be able to offer a fantastic range of themed cake pops! So what are cake pops I hear you ask?
Well they are basically cake lollipops made with crumbled cake that is mixed with icing or frosting and then coated in candy/chocolate and decorated.
Each of our cake pops are very skillfully handmade to order using fresh ingredients and are beautifully presented in a cello bag with a tie, perfect for a child's birthday or special occasion.
They make delicious favour gifts and are a wonderful alternative to giving out a slice of cake or cupcake and make a lot less mess too!
Cake pops are fairly easy to make (once you get the hang of it) and are great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen!
Here is a simple recipe for you which can be made in 10 easy steps:

Chocolate Fudge Cake Pops:

Ingredients:
Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix (Betty Crocker)
Ready-made chocolate icing or frosting (Betty Crocker)
Large bag of candy melts (Wilton's) or Chocolate (white or brown)
Plastic or paper lollipop sticks (6" to 7" recommended)
Edible Decorations (such as sugar sprinkles)
Polystyrene sheet (to keep cake pops upright)
Cello bags  & ties/curling ribbon.
Makes approx 48-50 cake pops

Method:
1. Make the chocolate fudge cake as per instructions on the box (you can make it in one cake tin rather than two if you wish)
2. Allow cake to cool completely and then crumble cake in either a food processor or by hand, until fine crumbs.
3. Mix in about 3/4 of the ready made icing /frosting by using the back of a metal spoon until the mixture is moist enough to roll into 11/2 inch balls.
4. Roll the balls by hand and then place them on a baking sheet and place in the refrigerator (preferably overnight)
5. Melt the Candy Melts or the Chocolate as per instructions in a deep bowl.
This is where the fun really begins....
6. Dip the end of the lollipop stick into the melted candy/chocolate and insert into the cake ball pushing it no more than half way through.
7. Then dip the entire cake ball into the mixture, covering it completely (be gentle to avoid the cake ball falling off the stick) and then sprinkle with the decorations straight away.
8. Place the stick into the polystyrene sheet to keep it upright so that it can set (can be placed back in the fridge to allow it to set quicker)
9. Repeat steps 6 to 8 until all the cake balls have been coated and decorated.
10. Cover each cake pop with a clear cello bag and tie using some curling ribbon.

And there you have it -  lovely looking, yummy cake pops!
If you clever and adventurous enough you can make different shapes with the cake mixture rather than just balls, but this does require lots of time and skill!
That's why we have made life easier for you, and are able to offer you a wonderful range of themed cake pops which can be delivered FREE directly to your door! (UK only)
