You will need
- 250g white chocolate
- Edible gold leaf
- Crumbled cake
- Rose and white food colouring (Colour Mill)
- Heart sprinkles
- Cakesicles mould
- Piping bag
Start by melting chocolate in the microwave in short 30 second bursts until melted. Once melted, add in a little white food colouring which makes the chocolate a better final colour.
Pour a little chocolate into a cakesicle mould and move the mould around to cover the whole of the inside in chocolate.
While the cakesicles are setting, mix up some cake crumbs and buttercream together. Approximately a ratio of 5:1 cake to buttercream. This should resemble the consistency of cookie dough.
Add some of this cake mixture into the set cakesicle. Begin to gently press into the mould. Make sure you get under the stick too.
Fill the mould with cake until it is just below the top surface. It doesn’t want to come any higher than the top.
Add in a little more melted chocolate in the remaining space and push it to fill all the gaps. Scrape off any excess then pop back in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to fully set.
Once the cakesicle is set, start to gently peel back the mould and release the cakesicle. Start at the top and release downwards towards the stick.
Now it’s time for decoration. Carefully take small sections of gold leaf and press this onto the cakesicle. It should stick easily however if it doesn’t, just add a little edible glue.
Melt a little more white chocolate. Again, add some white and a little rose to create a baby pink. Pop this in a piping bag and snip a teeny bit off the end. Drizzle some lines of chocolate over the cakesicles.
