Perfect for any party or get-together, these super-easy cake pops are sure to rock your world!
Cynthia Leung H-o-yan, of BulooBird Dessert, at Cat Stor, a cat-themed cafe in Causeway Bay, shows Young Post how to turn an ordinary pound cake into these lovely sheep on a lolly stick.
What you'll need
One pack of fondant icing
A pound cake
White chocolate, melted
1 Shape the sheep's head and limbs with the fondant icing. Refrigerate for an hour until firm.
2 To make the sheep's round body, use your hands to crumble the entire cake.
3 Add a bit of cream cheese and whipping cream to the crumbled cake pieces. It will act as glue to hold everything together. Mix thoroughly until it forms a dough.
4 Roll your cake mix into golf-ball-sized balls using your palms. Insert a lollipop stick into each ball. Refrigerate the cake balls for 15 minutes until firm.
5 To decorate, dip the pops one at a time into the melted chocolate and gently tap the lollipop stick on the edge of the bowl to remove excess chocolate, turning as you go to create an even coating.
6 Then immediately, sprinkle sugar pearls all over the pops. These will become the sheep's woolly coat.
7 Dip the sheep's body parts made of fondant icing into the melted chocolate and attach them to its body.
