Cake pops

I've made cake pops using the left over cake mix and icing but decided to get a mould- not sure if it is much quicker but it does make uniform cake pops.

Being my mixing 2 eggs, 190ml caster sugar, 60ml warm water and 60ml sunflower oil.

Add to this 250ml cake flour, 30g cocoa powder, 1tsp baking powder and 0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt.

Grease and flour both sides of the cake pop moulds.

Then put in a tsp full of mix to the bottom half (the one without the whole in the middle) til they are about three quarters full. Do not overfill.

Then snap on the top.

Then bake at 180 degrees for about 15-18 minutes (til a toothpick comes out clean.

Leave to cool for about 15 minutes then remove the top.

When they have cooled you should be able to just pop them out.

Temper about 350g of chocolate. Dip a stick into the chocolate and stick one into each ball. The chocolate will act as a glue.

Then dip each pop into the chocolate.

Decorate as you wish with sprinkles and then leave to dry on baking paper.

This amount make 40 so I did another batch in white, topped with a chocolate button and dusted with gold edible glitter.
