Christmas cake pops

Its not christmas without some home made baking so i made some christmas cake pops. I have never made these before, they are fun to make but the decorating is quite difficult but they are worth it in the end. The main part of the cake pop is made of cake mixture then i made buttercream to decorate. Heres how i made them ...

You will need . . .
- 3 eggs -self raising flour -caster sugar -butter/margarine -mixing bowl and spoon -cake pop mould and sticks -decorations

Ingredients . . .
4oz caster sugar
4oz self raising flour
4oz margarine
3 eggs

Method . . .
First you will need to pre heat your oven to 180 degrees to warm up while you prepare your cakepops. The firsts step of making the cake pops is mixing all of the ingredients together to make the cake pop mixture. Once you have the mixture spoon it into the bottom layer of your cakepop moulds filling them just bellow the top.

Next you need to place the top on your mould and put the cakepops in the oven for 20 minutes. Once cooked leave the cake pops to cool down fully before removing them from the moulds.
Once you have removed them you can add the sticks by gently pushing them into the bottom of the cakes. You will then need to stand them into somthing, i just put a few holes into a cardboard box. 

Now its time to make the butter cream to coat the cakepops.

Ingredients . . .
3oz butter softened
5oz caster sugar

Method . . .
Mix the butter and sugar together untill soft. You can then add some food colouring if you wish. I used red as it is a christmas colour. You can then go ahead and cover your cakepops with the butter cream. I then used different christmas sprinkles to finish decorating them.

This is the finished product, they look so cute and taste great. They will look great on the table for guests coming round or in a clear bag with a ribbon tied round them as a little gift or just as a tasty treat for yourself.
