Have you had enough of cake pops yet?
I think I have. But I decided to share these anyway. I know how you like it when baking goes bad.
I had good intentions. I decided to make them for a New Years Eve party and I thought I could make good use of a McVities Golden Syrup Cake and some homemade brandy butter that I had left.
Better to share at a party than stand by the fridge eating it with a spoon don’t you think?
I whizzed the cake to crumbs then added a few spoonfuls of brandy butter and rolled it into balls.
That all went SO well.
Then I made my mistake. I didn’t have time to put them in the fridge or freezer to harden up.
So when I dipped them in hot melted chocolate, lots of them melted…and dropped off their sticks.
Little chocolate bombs went off around the kitchen. I sulked.
I ate them with a spoon.
I salvaged some with white fondant icing and some holly and they looked pretty cute.
But this will be my last pop.
Stick a stick in me.
