If you like cake, and you like chocolate, then you’ll love cake POPs! These delicious little treats are a cross between a cake and a popsicle: a combination of moist cake and a sweet candy coating, molded onto a popsicle stick and then decorated to create a whole host of characters. Clare
O’Connell of the Pop Bakery teaches you all you need to know, from how to create the cake balls—a mouthwatering mixture of chocolate cake and frosting—to dipping the cake balls in the special candy coating. Then she explains her unique method of painting the POPs using cocoa butter. Choose from 25 scrumptious recipes, from cute panda POPs to a family of Russian dolls. Clare also introduces you to her special layer cakes, which are embellished with classic flower cake POPs. With clear, step-by-step photography and Clare’s easy-to-follow instructions, cake POPs are incredibly fun and easy to bake and make. Both children and adults will adore these bitesize delights that are perfect for parties and special occasions. So what are you waiting for? Start cake POPping now!
