Cake pops are THE hot baking trend and it's easy to make some at home once you know how. These simple flower pops are a good place to start


  • 200g (7oz) sponge cake crumbs
  • Finely grated rind of 1 small unwaxed lemon
  • 200g (7oz) white chocolate
  • 100g (3 1/2oz) unsalted butter
  • 12 plastic lolly sticks
  • 100g (3 1/2oz) milk chocolate
  • 1 box ready-made flowers (such as Dr Oetker Wafer Daisies) to decorate

If the cake ball comes off the stick, dip the end of the stick in melted chocolate and then push it back into the cake ball.


  1. Make a plain sponge cake without any filling or icing and leave to cool.
  2. Put the cake crumbs in a bowl and mix in the lemon rind. Set aside.
  3. Break up half of the white chocolate and place in a small heatproof bowl. Add the butter and set the bowl above a saucepan of barely simmering water, stirring occasionally, until melted. Remove from the water and mix well. Cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Spoon the chocolate mixture into the cake crumbs and mix well. Bring the crumbs together using your hands and knead together to form a smooth, well blended clump.
  5. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and form each into a compact round ball. Carefully insert a lolly stick into the centre and place on a plate lined with baking parchment. Cover and chill for 1 hour until firm.
  6. Melt the remaining white chocolate in another small bowl as above. Carefully dip 6 of the cake pops, twirling them in the melted chocolate to cover them evenly. Keep any chocolate that is left over.
  7. Place the coated cake pops either on their side or top end down, back on to the lined plate and leave in a cool place for about 30 minutes until set. Melt the milk chocolate in the same way and cover the remaining cake pops. Leave to set.
  8. Once the cake pops are completely set, arrange them in a small jug, vase or jam jar – you may wish to use a piece of flower arranging foam in the bottom so that you can skewer the pops in place.
  9. To finish, re-melt any chocolate that is left in the bowls as above and use a little blob on the back of each wafer daisy to secure it in place on each cake pop. Leave for a few seconds until set in place before serving.

I am planning to make these for a church event about 100.I came up with the same design but with green candy melts changing to chocolate now as these look great!.Made once before but not on sticks hope they work!.Sharon

Wow never heard of these but off to make some later. My boys will think they are great. Thanks for the fab idea. Sharon x


Oh my, i have never even seen or read about Cake Pops (just had a baby a few weeks ago v out of touch at the minuet) these look absolutely fab. My 3year old has just seen these while i was looking on here and is now demanding some to eat right now as her middle name is Daisy, so she is obsessed with all things Daisy related, lol. I have two packets of the Dr O daisys in the cupboard (again feeding her daisy obession!) i think when my little man is asleep this afternoon, i might take the time to spend some quality time with my little girl (she is still felling pushed out) and have a go at making these. Thanks for the great idea. Laura, Bella & Jacob x
