Cake? On a stick? Cake, on a stick?

Cake pops for the girls' party bags!

I’m still yet to get to grips with cake pops.

I’ve made them before and they were alright but I can never achieve the levels of perfection that I would like.

So when Ruby asked for them at her party, I was a little loathe to go through all the rigmarol and faffing that comes with these treats.

However, like the good Mummy I am (more like the good Catholic, the guilt when I said no was too much to bear) I decided I would make some.

Again, they weren’t fabulous but I was pleased with how they turned out eventually – and everyone commented on them, so that was nice!

I’d recommend you have a go at these before making them for a special occasion. And, one top tip would be to dip the sticks in the coating, then into the balls and chill in the fridge before attempting to dip again. Believe me, this method works!


Lollipop, lollipop …. ooh lolli-lollipop. Cake Pop!

If you’re looking for something super sweet and fun – then look no further than cake pops!

They’re lollipops made from cake and frosting, covered in a special coating and decorated with sprinkles. And, they’re super cute to boot!

These are the pefect bite-size amount of cake wrapped in vanilla coatings. All of the components needed are easily sourced online or in Hobby Craft.

And, although fiddly to start with, once you’ve made a few of the pops you’ll soon get the hang of it.

Let me know if you want to make these and I’ll sort recipes and some top tips out for you.
