I've been swamped with work over the last few weeks so my blog posts have been few and far between but I did manage to 'pap' a few photos when I was making some vanilla bean cake pops last week. I thought you might like to see them at their humble beginnings before they become the cake pops that we all know and love...
1. Blend up your cake, I use a mini blended to do this stage but you could also use a fork and a large bowl. I find it helps if your cake is nice and cold as it doesn't clump together as much as fresh cake.
This is vanilla bean laced cake crumbs before I add my buttercream:
2. Choose your sprinkles or decoration for your pops. I'm a sucker for bright non pareils:
3. Roll your crumbed pops into balls (mine weigh 25-30g each as a guide) Chill and then insert sticks with a little dab of candy melt to hold them in place whilst dipping:
5. Devour (no photo here as I got too carried away with the eating to take photos)
