I hope everyone is having a good Easter weekend! A quick post from me today - no baking involved. Just cake and buttercream and sprinkles on a stick otherwise known as cake pops. I had quite a bit of cake leftover from making my easter eggs with a twist. The cakes overflowed over the egg shells and I kept the cake crumbs with the intention of just eating them but then I thought why not make some cake pops? I thought about making cute easter chicks/bunnies or easter eggs but in the end decided to just use some sprinkles as it was much easier and less time consuming!
I'm sending this to Frugal Food Fridays run by Helen from Fuss Free Flavours and hosted by Utterly Scrummy this month. Cake pops are a great way to use up leftover/stale cake and is a fun project to do with the kids. You can make it as fancy or simple as you like. Here I've used leftover cake, candy melts and sprinkles (I had an odd assortment of sprinkles which had just a small amount in each box).
I'm also sending this to Bunny hop, an Easter link party hosted by Mrs Fox's Sweets
dip the cake balls in candy melts and pour sprinkles over them before the candy melt sets. Allow to dry completely.
