METHOD

FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE

Heat oven to 160C (fan 150C)

Line 7inch square cake tin with baking paper

In a bain marie or double boiler melt the butter, vanilla and chocolate

Remove from heat and stir in cocoa powder, sugar and beaten eggs

Pour the batter into the tin

Bake for about 25-30 mins until cake bounces back when lightly pressed

Place cake on rack to cool

DARK CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM

Melt chocolate drops in a microwave on low power, or in a bain marie on the hob

Whip butter until light and fluffy, gradually beat in icing sugar

Add vanilla extract and continue to beat

Fold in melted chocolate and milk, till you have an even consistency

TO DECORATE

Crumble cake with your fingers so it resembles fine breadcrumbs

In a food mixer, mix the chocolate buttercream frosting with the chocolate cake crumbles

Whisk until it resembles a dough-like mixture

Place mixture into fridge to firm up, making it easier to work with

Line a baking tray with baking paper

Using electric scales, measure out 30g of mixture and roll into a ball

Place on baking sheet

Repeat making small balls of cake mix, until all mixture has gone

Leave cake balls in fridge for a few hours or freezer for 15 mins

Place candy melts into a microwavable bowl and heat in the microwave on medium for 1 minute

Stir and continue heating in 30 second intervals until candy is fully melted

Dip lollipop stick about 1/2 inch into melted candy then push into a cake ball, just over halfway through

Place in fridge till the candy sets, repeat till all cake balls are on sticks

Carefully hold lollipop stick and dip the cake ball into melted candy, swirling gently until cake ball is covered. Gently tap to remove any excess candy

Place in polystyrene block or candy pop holder and leave to set, repeat till all cake balls have an even coat of candy

Using a small paint brush dipped in pink edible dust, smudge spots of pink on cake pops.

Using a small paint brush dipped in black food gel paint on little markings around the pink smudges to resemble a leopard print
