For some reason, J has been asking for weeks to make cake pops. I’ve never been a fan of cake pops, if you’re gonna eat cake, eat a cake that’s bigger than a ping pong ball. But J loved it. I must say it was one of the best baking sessions we’ve had.
I bought a cake pop mould, sticks and stand in poundland. Got to love a pound shop.
Firstly we made a cake, which we cooked in the microwave, so that it was ready quicker.
4oz baking marg
Mix together in an electric mixer.
1oz coco powder
A dash of milk
J had great fun measuring out the different ingredients. He was so good at not spiling, this is a definite improvement. He tried to read the numbers on the weighing scales which made me think I should get some electronic ones, so the numbers are clearer.
Whilst this was cooking I melting some chocolate. Once the cake was out J had fun mashing up about a quarter of the cake into crumbs.
Mix this with the melted chocolate and form into the moulds and pop into the fridge.
Having tasted them, I should have mixed in more melted chocolate, probably the whole bag of giant chocolate buttons would have been better, but I wanted to eat some this evening!
I think dipping in melted chocolate would have been nice too.
