Hello foodies, I’m your chef Kanak and I welcome
you all to my new food show Kanak’s Kitchen. In today’s show I will be teaching you a very
easy cake pops. These are very cute creations which are prepared out of basic sponge cakes.
These are a great alternative to cup cakes for kid’s birthday parties and gatherings.
Most importantly it is loved by everyone and it is very much is fashion nowadays. So let’s
get started. Here I’ve got a basic sponge cake. You can
use any basic vanilla sponge cake also. You can also use any other cake available of your
choice. Now in a large bowl, take the cake and break it and crush it with the help of
your hands to make crumbs out of it. I am doing it over here with the help of my hands
because it is very easy. But if you are making this in large quantity, you can also use a
food processor to crush it evenly. Now in this I am going to add the nutella. This is
added basically to give moisture and flavour to the cake pops, so that it can be rolled
easily. So if you want you can also use chocolate ganage or any other frosting or if you want
you can also use chocolate sauce over here. Now mix this into the cake crumbs and mix
thoroughly with the help of your hands until it all comes together to form a dough like
consistency. Now you can see the basic dough for the cake pops is ready. Now we’ll roll
them. Take a scooper or a spoon which will give us standard size measurement or if you
want, you can also roll them directly with the help of your hands. Taking a three table
spoon of mixture in your hands and roll it evenly between your palms to make small small
roundles out of it. Keep doing this for all the mixture. If you want you can take a small
portion in your hand and you can also give it a heart shaped with the help of your hand,
by making narrow at the lower bottom and with the help of a toothprick or a knife, you can
give a slit on top of it. With the help of your hands, you can slightly shape it to give
it a heart shape cake pop. Now you can see that the cake pops are ready. Few I have rolled
them into round and few into heart shape. Now I am going to put these into the fridge
to set enough for twenty to thirty minutes, so that it firms up a bit to dip them into
melted chocolate. Now I am going to melt the grated chocolate into the microwave for thirty
to forty seconds until it is smooth and glossy. Now take a small portion of the lollipops
stick or the wooden stick to the melted chocolate and then pierce this into the cake ball inside
upto the three forth portion of the ball and it will stick onto it. Keep it aside. Now
take the cake pop with the stick and dip it into the melted chocolate to coat it on all
sides evenly. You can also use a spoon for this. Tap out all the access chocolate coming
out of it. Be careful while tapping so that the stick does not come out. I am going to
sprinkle the cake pops with the chocolate sprinkles onto it while it is still moist.
You can also use coloured sprinkles on few of them. I am going to sprinkle few with the
edible coloured hearts. You can be really creative over here and use any kind of decoratives
of your choice. Once all of them are ready and nicely coated, I am going to put them
in the fridge to set enough. You can see now my beautiful and lovely looking cake pops
are ready and they looks quite presentable. You can wrap them and them put them in a basket.
Here I have used the basic sponge cake for cake pops, but if you want you can also use
any other left over brownies or any other muffins available at your home. If you want
to make them more richer, you can just stuff them into roasted almonds or some choco chips
if you want. You can also be creative by decorating it with any other sprinkles of your choice.
