So I wanted to make something a little bit fun for the kids at Easter and I came up with these, the are great fun to do and my kids are now having a discussion which one to eat first! I made my cake pops in my MPL Home Cake Pop Maker which I love as it takes all the effort out of making them, they literally take 4 minutes to bake!
125g softened butter
125g caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
125g self raising flour
Cake pop sticks
White candy buttons (PME are good)
Yellow candy buttons
Sprinkles for beaks, wings and bunny noses
Ready made icing for ears
Food colouring for eyes and mouth
How to make them……
Beat the butter and the sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy then add the eggs and beat well until fully incorporated. Add the flour and mix until well combined.
Heat the cake pop maker and add a teaspoon of batter to each mould and bake for 4 minutes. Remove and leave to cool completely.
Melt the candy buttons either in the microwave or over simmering water, insert a stick into each cake pop and dip in the covering, you may need to use a spoon to help cover the cake ball. Stand them in a tall glass or a cake pop stand, use sprinkles to add wings, feet and the bunny nose, this is best done while slightly sticky still. If you leave it too late and they have dried you will need to add with a dab of icing.
When they have dried completely add details such as eyes and the bunnies mouth with food colouring using a fine paintbrush, or an edible pen. For the bunny ears, I simply rolled out some white icing and used a small cutter but you could use a knife. For the pink insert of the bunny ears I coloured a small amount of white icing with a dab of pink colouring and cut out smaller piece to fit inside, use water to stick them together. I curled one slightly because it looks cute! Make a small amount of icing relatively thick and dab some on the back of the bunnies head and attach two ears and leave them to dry.
I hope you have as much fun as we did!
