Creepy Cake Pops
This is a cute one for the kids.
What’s more freaky than reconstituted cake squished into a ball and decorated to make it appetising? Perfect for Halloween.
These are actually really easy to make (especially the mummy ones) and kids love them. I had a few issues with the pumpkin ones (getting the colour right and stable enough to coat - see my story for more on this and how to avoid my mistakes).
You can use home-made or store-bought cake and buttercream icing for the pops. I cheated with store-bought because I literally just wasted 5 hours of my life carving a pumpkin that’s already decomposing in the bin #priorities. Any type of cake will work - just make sure you don’t add to much icing as you don’t want it to be a soggy mess.
For the pops:
- Cake. Store-bought or homemade. I used 2 x Coles Madeira Cakes $2.50 each. They have a slightly citrus taste and are very moist
- Buttercream Icing. Store-bought or homemade. I used about 1/3 of a cup of Coles Vanilla Buttercream Icing - $4.
For the decorations:
- White Chocolate Melts 290g x 2. Mine were the Nestle brand at Coles $3.85 per bag
- Candy Eyeballs $3.50 at Coles
- Wilton Bloody Bones Sprinkles $5.50 at Spotlight. I can't find these online anymore, but here's a good Halloween alternative.
- Coles White Ready To Roll Icing $4.50
- Coles Black Ready to Roll Icing $3.50
- Brown Fontastic Fondant for the pumpkin stems (a bit of melted chocolate would also work). $11 for a mini tub @spotlightstores.
