cake pops Ingredients 350g un-iced sponge cake 1/3 tub bought frosting White chocolate melts Powder food colouring Lollipop sticks

1. Blend the cake until ‘crumbs’ then add the frosting. The mixture should not be too wet but moist enough to hold together. 2. Roll into balls and refrigerate overnight on a tray. 3. Melt chocolate and dip the sticks in chocolate then into the ball and allow to set for 5 minutes 4. Dip them in first colour to coat and allow some excess

to drip off. 5. Spoon random blobs of the second colour onto the ball and swirl to allow colours to ‘marble’. Work quick so chocolate doesn’t set. 6. Stick the stick in a block of florist foam to dry. Wrap with little cello bags and ribbon!
