Cake Pops

My dear friend bought me a belated present of Cake Pop's starter kit. The two kits were from Lakeland, the first being the mould/tray the cake mixture is cooked in. The second being a pack that included a stand, sticks and presentation bags.

I had never made cake pops, and took the rainy afternoon as the opportunity to make them.
Firstly I made the mixture and halved the recipe on the back of the packaging (as the recipe made 40 and I didn't need that many!)


60g butter, sofened
75g caster sugar
90g self raising flour, sifted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1.5 tbsp milk
1) Cream the butter and sugar together until well mixed and fluffy.
2) Add the vanilla and eggs, and mix well
3) Add the flour and milk and mix until well combined
4) Place the mould onto a baking tray then spoon the mixture into the cake mould, ensuring each cavity is full. Close the mould.
5) Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 180 degrees. 
6) Once cooked, and a skewer comes out clean leave the cake pops to cool
7) Once cooled push a stick into each of the pops
8) Dip the cake pops into icing or chocolate and decorate as desired

The silicone tray and presentation kit can be bought from Lakeland :)

Happy Baking :) xoxo
