Snowman Cake Pops

Use either home made or bought cake for this recipe. Readymade cake and frosting from a variety of flavours can be used!

Ingredients

  • 400g Cake Mixture
  • 200g Buttercream frosting or White Chocolate to mix
  • White Candy Melts or White Chocolate
  • Liquorice or a small amount of Black Sugar Paste
  • Tiny amount of Pink and Orange Sugar Paste
  • Cake pop sticks
  • Edible glue

Method

  1. Crumble the cake into a large mixing bowl, as finely as possible.
  2. Begin to mix it with the frosting a tablespoon at a time until you get a fudge-like consistency.
  3. Cover the mixture and chill for at least 1 hour. When the mixture is firm but not hard it is ready to work with. Break off a small piece of the mixture, about the size of a ping pong ball and roll into a smooth ball. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 mins.
  4. Melt the candy melts.
  5. Take a pop stick and dip one end (2cms) into the candy.
  6. Immediately and carefully stick the pop stick into the centre of the cake ball, about halfway through. Allow 1 to 2 mins for the candy to set.
  7. Dip each ball of cake into the candy melt. Ensure you cover right to the top of the stick to secure the pop on the stick.
  8. Allow the candy to set, 1 -2 mins.
  9. Decorate with small circles of black sugar paste or liquorice cut into a hat shape and eyes. A circle of pink sugar paste gives an attractive hatband contrast. Roll a small piece of orange into a carrot shape for a nose and use edible glue to hold in place
