What's a Cakesicle? (I hear you ask!)

They're a new take on the original cake pop! Not only do they look cute, but they're also filled with yummy fillings, too; they're actually a bigger version of a cake pop made in a popsicle mould, merge the two together, and voila, you have a Cakesicle.

What can you put inside a Cakesicle?

There are numerous filling you can put in the centre of a Cakesicle such as,
  • Cake Pop Filling - Crumbled Cake/Cupcakes & Buttercream
  • Cookies and Cream - Oreo Biscuits & Cream Cheese
  • Cheesecake Filling
  • Krispie Treats - Either Covered in Chocolate or Marshmallows
I put Krispie Treats in these.

How do you make Cakesicles?

They are relatively easy to make; all you'll need are the following:

Equipment
  • Lollipop/Popsicle Mould

  • Lollipop Sticks

  • Sharp Knife
Ingredients
  • Candy Buttons/ Melts or Chocolate - Around 250 Grams / 284 Grams Depending on Bag or Chocolate Bar Size
  • Filling of your choice - If using Cupcakes, you'll probably need around three or four depending on your mould size, with around 75 grams of Buttercream.
  • Dyes - Optional - I used Colour Mill Dyes, which are oil-based, you can use other concentrated food dyes, but these will need to be used in conjunction with vegetable oil, so the buttons/chocolate doesn't seize.
Method

1. Melt some of the chocolate or melts into a bowl/microwaveable dish. (If using dyes add a few drops here).

2. Spoon some of the melted chocolate/melts into each mould.

3. Hold the lollipop/popsicle mould with both hands and rotate it ensuring all the chocolate covers the surface, up the sides and around the base.

4. Push the lollipop/popsicle stick through the opening of the mould to ensure you pierce the coating, and there is space to place it later. Remove the lollipop/popsicle stick.

5. Place the mould in the fridge/freezer for around ten minutes to allow your first coat to set.

6. Now, make up your filling while the coat is setting, mix your ingredients in a bowl until it sticks together.

7. Remove the mould from the fridge/freezer. If you're happy with your first coat, then move on to stage 8; if you think it may be a little thin, repeat stages 1 to 5. Making sure all the mould is covered.

8. Lightly push your filling into the mould; ensure you leave around a 2 mm gap from the top of the rim to enable you to coat the back of the Cakesicle evenly without it overflowing...

9. Push your lollipop/popsicle sticks into each hole; make sure you only push them in around halfway up the mould.

10. Place back in the fridge/freezer for around 10 minutes while you prep the next batch of chocolate/ melts.

11. Melt some more chocolate or melts to cover the back of the Cakesicle, scoop onto the mould with a spoon, cover the filling fully and then scrape off any excess with an offset palette knife. Place back in the fridge/freezer for around 15 minutes to fully set.

12. Carefully remove from the fridge/freezer and then carefully hold the stick and peel the mould away.

13. Scrape off any excess chocolate that has set around the edges with a sharp knife.

14. Decorate as required.
  • Drizzle with Candy Buttons/Melts
  • Then add Sprinkles
  • Crushed up Fillings
  • Chocolate Stamps or
  • Fondant Decorations
15. Then Box and Gift.
