If you like cake, you'll love cake POPs - the delicious little treats that are a cross between a cake and a lollipop. Now you can make your own with this gorgeous kit. Discover cake POPs - a combination of moist cake and a sweet candy coating, moulded onto a lollipop stick and then decorated to create a whole host of characters. Clare O'Connell of the POP Bakery teaches you all you need to know, from how to create the cake balls - a mouth-watering mixture of chocolate cake and icing - to dipping the cake balls in the special candy coating. Then she explains how to shape the POPs and paint them using cocoa butter.
