Quick Cake Pops

Annie Bastow
Meal Type:
  • Prep Time
    1 hour 15 minutes
  • Serves
    20 cake pops

Cake Pops are like a cake lollipop, colourful and fun to serve at parties. Save time by using a store-bought cake to make these bright bites.

Decorating time: 45 minutes


  • 400-g piece ready-made Madeira or lemon cake
  • 1½ cups icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp softened butter
  • 1-2 tbsp hot water
  • 2 cups milk or dark chocolate melts (Decoration)
  • Sprinkles and silver cachous (Decoration)
  • 20 lollipop sticks (Decoration)


  1. Crumble the cake into a medium bowl.
  2. Sift the icing sugar into a separate bowl. Beat in the softened butter and hot water until you achieve a smooth icing.
  3. Fold into the cake crumbs and shape the mixture into 20 balls. Chill for at least one hour or until firm.
  4. Gently melt the chocolate adding a little canola oil if too thick to dip the ‘pops’ into.
  5. Dip the end of the lollipop sticks into the chocolate and then push into the pops. Leave for at least 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.
  6. Dip each cake pop into the melted chocolate, roll to coat then decorate with sprinkles or lollies of your choice. Leave to stand upright in a tall glass to set completely.

Real Tip:

The dipping chocolate in the bowl will need to be melted again after 10 minutes.
