Re: Favourite Cake Recipes
Not a cake recipe per se, but something you can do once you make a cake and icing.
Candy covered Cake lollies:
One box cake mix (whatever you like)
One container icing (see above)
I-2 bags Candy melts
(each bag will cover about 20 balls)
Bake cake according to directions. Let cool.
Once cake is cooled, crumble into a large mixing bowl. Add icing in small increments just until the cake is moist and easily molded into balls.
Roll out as many 1 inch balls as you can out of the cake/icing mix then pop into the freezer for 1 hour.
Melt candies in a deep, narrow container suitable for dipping. Take cake balls out of the freezer, insert a lollipop sick into each ball then dip into the melted candy. Set cake balls on a well greased cookie sheet then put them in the refrigerator until the chocolate is totally cool and hardened.
From here you can either wrap them in simple saran wrap with twist ties, or drop them into fancy bags or even shove the sticks into a foam form to make a centerpiece.
I made these with Red Velvet Cake and Cream Cheese Icing then covered them in Dark chocolate melts for my mum for Mother's Day and they were a HUGE hit.
