Home > Food > Life > Recipe of the Week: Christmas Robin Cake Pops

“Booths are making Christmas seriously easy this year, with an incredible food range that can be pre-ordered or bought in store – they also have tons of easy to follow recipes on their website.
And these (*impress everyone) cake pops are so easy to make. You can even do it with the kids or pre-make some on your own and then let them go wild with a few!”


1 Booths Madeira Loaf Cake
200g tub ready-made vanilla buttercream
300g milk chocolate
100g ready-made red fondant
100g ready-made white fondant
50g ready-made yellow fondant
1 pack candy eyes
1 pack food colouring gels
Paper straws


1. Crumble the sponge between your fingers until you get a fine breadcrumb consistency.
2. Add the buttercream and mix until it comes together.
3. Mould the cake mix into round balls, using a small ice-cream scoop to make them evenly sized. Freeze the balls for 1 hour.
4. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie and cool to 30°C, use a temperature probe to help you. This will temper the chocolate and give a nice snap to the texture.
5. Press each cake ball on to a straw and dip into the melted chocolate until they are fully coated, then allow to set (they will set quickly).
6. Using some of the white fondant and food colouring gels, create your desired wing colour and cut them out.
7. Dip the cakes into the melted chocolate again and decorate with the fondant and decorations, using our robins as inspiration.
