Amazing cakes Themed Fun

Ghost Cake Pops!

Written by Claire

These friendly ghosts will make little people smile rather than scream at your Halloween party! They’re yummy and easy to make too! 


475 g white chocolate broken into small pieces (175g for the cake mix, 300g to decorate)
350 g  pre made plain sponge (I used small madeira cakes)
350 g fondant icing
black writing icing tube/ pen

  • Break the sponge into crumbs using a food processor or involve your children by asking them to do it with their hands!
  • Boil water in a pan, then turn down the temperature so it is simmering rather than boiling. Place  175g of the chocolate pieces into a bowl and melt over the saucepan, stirring to ensure it doesn’t burn.
  • Remove from heat and add the cake crumbs to the melted chocolate. Mix well.
  • Use your hands to create small balls of ‘cake’. Insert a lolly stick into each ball and put on a lined baking tray. Place in the fridge to firm up for at least 30 mins

Once you are ready to decorate the cake pops;

  • Roll out the fondant icing until it is about 5mm thick. Use a round pastry cutter to cut out the icing, then roll over each disk again, so it is slightly thinner.
  • Melt the rest of the white chocolate (as above).
  • Dip one cake pop at a time into the chocolate until it is well covered. Remove and place a fondant disk on top. Carefully squeeze down to create a ‘ghost’ shape
  • Place the cake pops in a tall glass, or in a polystyrene block and allow the chocolate to set.
  • Once all the cake pop ghosts have been completed, draw on eyes  and a mouth using a black icing pen.

 Voila! Cute, ghoolie ghosty yumminess ready for Halloween!!
