Cake Pops and Cakesicles are a delicious treat made from crumbled sponge cake and buttercream combined, before dipping or moulding in chocolate.
Cake Pops and Cakesicles do have a reputation for being time consuming and tricky, but they can be a joy to make once you get the technique right! I hope this information will help you to get into your Cake Pop groove!
While there is no exact recipe for Cake Pops and Cakesicles, I will explain the fundamentals below.
To make the filling, you simply crumble the sponge cake into a fine crumb and add small amounts ob buttercream until it forms a dough. My preferred method is to do this in a food processor. Pop the Sponge into the food processor and blitz until fine, then add a little buttercream (a tsp at a time) while blitzing until the dough forms a ball.
You can use a hand mixer or do this by hand, but make sure to crumb as fine as you can.
Adding too much buttercream to the mixture can cause your cake pops to fall off the sticks when dipping. This is less of an issue when making Cakesicles though.
Cake Pop dough can be frozen for up to three months.
If your cake balls are falling off the sticks, its could be caused by a few different issues.
