This is a big seller at the market , unfortunately I don’t have the time to do it every week, as it takes some time to assemble and I work alone, specially if I have some catering orders , I try to avoid wasting time on several projects. They are cute edible bouquets of cake lollipops, with different flavours…
Sometimes I bake the cake couple of days in advance and turn it into cake balls and freeze it to use it by the end of week.
This is a fun project for the mom and her children ,and it’s a good starts for the children to be involved in their food.
The lollipops can be made from different flavours: I do banana cakes, carrot cakes, and chocolate cakes, even fruit cakes.
In advance bake the cakes and crumble them by hand and better if using a food processor... it combines a better texture to work with. Roll them and put them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Freeze them until hard.
In separate bowls add in each your decorations.
Take the cakes out of the freezer. Melt white and dark chocolates in different pots (of course you will be in charge of dipping in the balls) In couple of minutes the balls will soften enough to insert a wooden lollipop stick in them.
Dip in the chocolates and give your kids the pleasure to decorate them.
Return them to the baking sheet to set, and if needed couple of minutes in the freezer will quicker the operation... use plastic candy bags to wrap them, use a scotch tape around the bag to tie, them use a ribbon to tie around it in a nice bow.
These lollipops are fun to do, a good project for the family. Great for birth day parties and school projects.
