Get your kiddos in the kitchen and get your bake on!
What you need:
3/4 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup plain flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
75g butter, room temperature
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
5-6 drops red food colouring
Plastic lollypop sticks
300g white chocolate melts
1 egg white
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
Red food colouring gel or paste
Place all cake pop ingredients into a large bowl and mix with electric whisk for 1-2 minutes until well combined. Pre-heat the Cake Pop Maker. Lightly grease and spoon 1 tablespoon of batter into each hole. Close lid and cook for 4 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool and repeat with remaining mixture.
Melt the white chocolate in a bowl, following the packet instructions. Dip one end of each lollypop stick into a little melted chocolate then insert into cake pops.
Refrigerate for 5 minutes to set.
Dip the cake pops, one at a time into the melted chocolate; hold over the bowl allowing excess chocolate to drip away. Decorate some with a glace cherry then stand all cake pops into a glass (or piece of foam) and allow to set at room temperature.
To decorate the remaining cake pops, sift the icing sugar into a bowl. Lightly whisk the egg white in a separate bowl, to loosen. Add the sifted icing sugar a little at a time, stirring until smooth. Add food colouring and mix until combined.Spoon a small amount of the red royal icing on the top of the set chocolate cake pops, allowing it to drip down the sides or drizzle over. Yummmmy!!!!
