Fruity Cake Pops

Cake pops decorated as fruit

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here, so I thought I’d share some pictures of these lovely fruity cake pops my daughter (14) made last week. One of my first posts on here was about cake pops, and on that occasion we decorated them more simply with sprinkles and suchlike. This time however, my daughter decided to get a bit more creative.

She didn’t follow any recipe or template, so these are completely her own creation. I can’t tell you exactly what she did because I wasn’t involved, apart from sticking my head around the kitchen door every now and again and saying “Ooh, you’re doing a lovely job! Call me when you’re done so that I can photograph them for my blog!”

What I do know is that she made three batches of the little round ball cakes, one batch coloured pink and flavoured with strawberry, one batch yellow and flavoured with lemon, and one batch green and flavoured with apple. Once they were cooked and cooled, she used fondant icing, and tubes of writing icing, and got to work. She used a real apple stalk in the apple slice.

I think she did an excellent job – I’m sure you’ll agree, these little bite sized fruity cakes would look great on any kids’ party table. She also decorated a few in a more traditional cake pop way, like this…

Happy baking everyone!

    • Yes, I was quite impressed! When she said she was going to make them into fruit, I thought she meant just the whole fruit shape, I didn’t realise she was going to cut into them and go into that much detail.

  1. Chip off the old block, what a talented daughter you have. I’m not much into sweets but these look too delicious to pass up. I love to watch creativity at work. *pushes forefinger into check* 😉

    • She’s much better at this sort of thing than I am, I don’t have the patience, I prefer quick and easy recipes! I didn’t actually eat any of these myself, but she said that they were a bit too sweet, probably because the ratio of frosting to cake was quite high!

      • Well, it’s all in the family and let’s face it, she get some talents from Mom. 😉
        I never go on FB but recently saw and had to try a recipe with just two ingredients (for muffins). One 15-oz. can of pumpkin and 1 box of Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix. The trouble with me is, I thought this would be boring so I added 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1 cup raisins. Next time I’d like to make this with Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix. Bake 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes. I had to bake for 15 additional —guess it depends on your stove.
        BTW. It would help to get the lumps out of mix before adding pumpkin. 😉

  2. Those are a great idea, Vanessa. Kudos to your daughter – she’s every bit the artist you are. 🙂 The strawberry one looks like it was especially challenging…so glad you snapped a photo before it was gone. 😉
