Vanilla Cake Pops with Lemon Icing

As you know I got a Cake Pop Maker for my birthday and I could not wait to try it out, we had cake pops for the kids at our wedding and they just looked so perfect that I already doubted how my own would live up to them but here is how I make my Vanilla Cake Pops with Lemon Frosting:

Ingredients

  • 100g of Butter
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 100g of Flour
  • 1 tbsp of Vanilla Essence
  • ½ tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100g of Icing Sugar
  • Few drops of Lemon Juice
  • Few drops of Water
  • Hundreds and Thousands

Method

  1. Turn on your cake pop maker so it can preheat
  2. Sift the sugar into a bowl and add the butter and cream until smooth
  3. Then sift in the flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder and mix until crumbly
  4. Then add the eggs and vanilla and whisk until smooth
  5. The cake pop maker will be hot by now (follow the instructions specific to your model)
  6. Open it and brush a light layer of butter onto each mould before spooning your mixer into them, I did this to the top of the bottom mould as I thought this got the best result of a full pop
  7. Close the lid and cook for 3-4 minutes
  8. Once ready open and carefully remove from the mould onto a cooling rack
  9. Repeat this process until you have used alll of your mixture, I found this got around 30 pops
  10. Once your pops are cool you can make your icing by mixing the icing sugar and lemon juice together and gradually adding water until you have a smooth and thick mixture
  11. The pick up a pop and dip into the icing then directly into the hundreds and thousands
  12. Balance carefully on your cooling rack until they have set
  13. You can then eat and enjoy!

I could not have been more thrilled with the final results of these Vanilla Cake Pops with Lemon Frosting. They simply looked amazing and tasted so good too. probably too good! These little mouthfuls get eaten soooo quickly so if you are trying to be good this New Years just do not even consider this recipe. That is a warning!

However for the price of the machines, I would really recommend these as an investment as they are really simple, I think it would be a great task to get the kids involved with, probably not when using the machine as it gets really really hot but the decorating and eating of course!
