Christmas Pudding Cake Pops

Christmas Pudding Cake Pops

'Tis nearly the season to be jolly and to make some festive cake pops. First up are my Christmas pudding cake pops. These are simple cake pops to make and you could even get the children helping out.

You will need.

Sponge cake
Green icing (ideally prepared with CMC)
Red icing or red sugar balls
Milk Chocolate cake covering
White chocolate cake covering
edible glue

Start by making the holly leaves. I purchased some holly plungers from ebay for a few pounds. Leave to harden.

Mix the sponge cake and frosting in equal quantities and put in the fridge to cool.

Roll into balls.

Melt the milk chocolate cake covering and dip the cake pop stick into it and then pop them back in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Now fully coat the cake pops in melted milk chocolate and put back in the fridge.

Melt some white chocolate cake covering. Take the cake pops out of the fridge and dip them half way into the white chocolate. Pop an icing holly leaf on the top.

    Spending a couple of pounds in the holly cutter makes the difference

  5. You did a great job. I keep meaning to give cake pops a try.

  6. I love these. We made some similar a few years back but re-used holly leaves from another set of cake pops rather than make our own. x

    They are easy once you get the hang of them. I hated them the first few times I tried

    I am getting slightly addicted with buying plungers at the moment they are so cheap and look so professional x
