A great activity for the kids over the summer holidays - these no cook cake pops are super easy with the help of your freezer. No fancy equipment needed, a few simple ingredients and some eager helpers!

Ingredients:

  • Cake, yep, any cake - left over cake, shop bought cake, or home-made cake (we used a simple plain shop bought Madeira cake)
  • 150g icing sugar
  • 50g full fat cream cheese
  • Candy melts or buttons (we went to Hobbycraft)
  • Cake pop sticks (also found in Hobbycraft! or you could use lolly sticks)
  • Sprinkles of your choice

Method:

  1. Add the cake to a blender or food processor and pulse - you want to create cake crumbs.  Or, place the cake in a bowl and use your finger tips to make cake crumbs.
  2. Mix the icing sugar and cream cheese together until you have a soft paste (quite runny) Simply make more or less icing depending on how much cake you're using - there's no science here, you just need enough icing to make the cake dough come together.
  3. Mix the cream cheese icing with the cake crumb until a cake dough forms - a little bit like pastry.
  4. Now mould into balls with your hands - if you're super picky about perfect cake pops you can use your kitchen scales to weigh 40g of cake dough for each pop - then hand roll into a ball.
  5. FREEZE - place your cake balls onto a tray and place in the freezer for around 10 minutes until firm.
  6. Melt the candy melts according to the pack instructions.  You may need to add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to the melted candy melts to ensure a good dipping consistency.
  7. Dip your cake pop or lolly stick into the melted candy melts and then insert into the cold cake pop - ensure to push your stick all the way to the end of the cake pop to make sure it stays on!
  8. Dip your cake pop into the melted candy melts and twist to ensure an even coverage.
  9. Once dipped you can decorate with a variety of sprinkles. We used freeze dried strawberries and hundreds & thousands.
  10. Leave to set and enjoy!
