Lamington Inspired Cake Pops

Posted by - April (Miss Conversationalist) @ Tête-à-Tête 4 Food



Miss C "after seeing that this month's challenge was making Cake Pops I was really excited. I decided to make lamington inspired cake pops as I love a little twist to classics" 


Miss C "i thought this would only be, bake a CAKE + FROSTING + COAT with CHOCOLATE + DECORATE = CAKE POPS, how wrong I was! Yes, those are the basic steps but it isn't that easy"


Cake pops "getting the amount of cake and frosting ratio is crucial, as this determines whether they can be formed into balls


Cake pops "also, finding a good glaze will insure the coating and decorating process is a lot easier"

I didn't even know what Lamington was! I had to google it. These sound yummy now that I know. :)

Lamingtons are iconic australian baked goods. It is basically a sponge cake cake into squares or rectangles covered in chocolate and finished off with desiccated or flaked coconut.

Maybe they could become a challenge one day :)
