Pudsey cake pops

 

What better way to celebrate Children in Need tonight than with some tasty Pudsey cake pops. These treats would be lovely to eat as a family or you could make them to sell to raise money. I won’t lie and say they are easy to make but it is definitely worth the effort. The girls can’t wait to get their hands on them.

Ingredients

(makes about 8-10cake pops)
  • 1/2 tub of ready mixed chocolate butter cream icing
  • 1 madeira cake
  • 500g bar of milk chocolate/ pack of yellow candy melts
  • 1 pack of white chocolate buttons/ or use the candy melts cut in half
  • candy eyeballs
  • rainbow sweets
  • lollypop sticks
  • small chocolate beans
  • black icingPudsey cake pops

What To Do

Cut off the sides of the cake and crumble into a bowl.

Mix the icing with the cake crumbs and roll into a ball. It should be quite firm. Wrap in cling film and put into the fridge for at least half an hour.

Put the sticks half way into the cake balls. I put them back in the fridge for another half an hour as they seem to stay on the stick better .

Melt the chocolate. I prefer to do this over a bowl of boiling water.

Dip the cake pops in the melted chocolate  or candy melts.

To decorate add two buttons for ears, a brown chocolate bean on for the nose and the candy eyes. Ice a mouth using black icing. To make the bandage stick some chocolate beans onto a rainbow sweet using some of the melted chocolate and leave to dry.

Put in the fridge to set.

To display I use florists foam and stick them at different heights.
