Following on from the previous post, where we had a cake to put in the freezer, here’s something easy to make with that cake. Or you could use any shop bought cake if you wanted to.
Firstly, if using cake you’ve previously frozen, defrost it overnight.
Using a food processor, turn that cake into fine crumbs
Add a tablespoon or two of either cream cheese frosting or butter cream frosting (I’ve usually got some in the fridge or freezer). Start with just the one tablespoon, add it to the cake crumbs and whizz up in the processor until all the crumbs are mixed into a dough. Using your hands, make small balls out of the dough, leave to cool in the fridge for an hour.
Meanwhile melt some chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water.
Push a cake pop stick or lolly stick into each cake pop and firstly using a teaspoon drizzle a small amount of chocolate over the stick end of the cake pop and let it set, this will help keep the cake pop on the stick when you dip it into the chocolate to cover the rest of it. Once all done, place in the fridge to set, or you could add assorted sprinkles
