Gaby's Bakery - Popsicle Cakes

Here’s a recipe to confuse the kids. Not a lollipop, not an icicle, nor a gobstopper on a stick, and it wrangles with your brain when you first bite into cake!

Popsicle Cakes

Ingredients:
For the cake:
100g unsalted butter
100g sugar
100g self-raising flour
2 eggs
½ tsp vanilla extract

For the buttercream:
150g icing sugar
75g butter
1 tbsp milk
½ tsp vanilla extract

For the chocolate coating and decorations:
200g dark or white chocolate
Hundreds & thousands / sprinkles etc of choice to decorate

Method:
For the cake:
Preheat oven to 170⁰ C fan. Prepare a 20cm springform cake tin by greasing and lining with parchment paper. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time beating in between, then add the vanilla and finally fold in the flour. Pour into the prepared cake tin and bake for appx 18-20 mins, until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Place on a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cooled, crumble the cake. You can do this with an electric beater.

For the buttercream:
Beat the icing sugar, butter, milk and vanilla until smooth, light and fluffy. Add the buttercream to the crumbled cake and mix together. Using a scooped measuring tbsp, spoon out a quantity of the mixture and roll into a ball. Place on the lined baking tray and repeat until all mixture is used. Pop a thin lollypop stick about ½ an inch into each ball, then place in the fridge to set for appx 45 mins.

For the chocolate:
Just before taking the cake pops out of the fridge, melt the chocolate in a bain marie. Place the sprinkles in a bowl. Dip the cake pop into the melted chocolate, allow excess to drip off and then dip into the sprinkles. Place in a cake pop stand, or anything that will keep the cake pop upright. Once all are ready place in the fridge to set.

Enjoy.
