|Cake Pops - Jammy Dodger|
The week before I made some decorations I'd originally intended to use on the seaside cake but were now going spare. Miniature donuts, ice lollies, biscuits and pie, all made with sugar paste, a mould, lustre dust and a steady hand.

*Cake Pop Tip - my friend Wendy who's a dab hand at making cake pops, always recommends melting the chocolate in tall narrow container so you can dip the ball of cake into, easily covering the ball but without wasting too much chocolate. My sundae glass was perfect for this task.
I'll admit to there be one casualty during the process, the very last cake ball I was dipping into the chocolate seemed to be pulled off the stick by a vacuum of chocolate. I managed to rescue it, but it did lose it's shape. Look closely at the cake pops with the slice of pie.
I thought that visually they really delivered a wow! Although for taste satisfaction it's not like eating a piece of cake but it was helped by them being covered in strawberry chocolate. If I ever have any left over sponge I will certainly cake pops again.
