Rudolph Cake Pop Tutorial
- Baked cake of your choice. Packet mix is perfectly acceptable. I've used homemade mud cake as it doesn't require any icing to bind it together.
- Chocolate melts or chopped chocolate (milk or dark)
- Copha if required
- Red smarties or m&ms
- Icing eyes or round lollies
- Deep microwavable bowl
- Lollipop sticks
- Cellophane bags
- Brown pipe cleaners
Crumble your cold baked cake into fine crumbs.
Squeeze your cake crumbs to form balls approximately 3-3.5cms in diameter. If your mixture is not moist enough to form smooth balls add a spoonful of icing.
The more icing you add the more 'fudgy' your cake pops will be.
Place your chocolate in a bowl and microwave in short bursts until melted. If it appears too thick add a little copha.
Dip one end of your lollipop sticks in the melted chocolate and push into the cake balls. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes
Make sure your chocolate is still liquid and smooth and dip each cake pop to seal completely. Leave aside to set.
Use melted chocolate to attach noses and eyes. Let set.
Package each cake pop in a cellophane bag and tie with pipe cleaners to form antlers
