A couple of Fridays ago I shared my first attempt at making cake-pops with you and I hope you’ve since had a go at making them for yourselves. I did the stick-two-halves-together method of cake-pop making, using a silicone cake-pop tray from Dunelm Mill. If you remember, I had to trim off the tops of the sponge to make two cake halves to stick together to make each pop. I made cheeky milk chocolate ones last week, and now here’s the white chocolate and vanilla sponge version of the cake pops – yummy:
As you know, I hate waste, and those little sponge trimming weren’t going in the bin, oh no, they were going in my tummy! But when I saw their cute size and half-dome shape, I was reminded of the old-school Jazzles (sometimes called Jazzies too) chocolate sweets from my childhood. I’m sure that you can still buy them nowadays too – do you remember them? They are the little chocolate discs with sprinkles on. So good…
So I set about making these little ‘waste’ discs of sponge into DIY Jazzles by dipping them in white and milk chocolate before coating them in rainbow-coloured sprinkles. I left them to set in the fridge for a while and then enjoyed them with a cup of tea – just the perfect size to nibble on without having to commit to eating a whole cake!
