Banana Pops – Cake Pops of the Future

Cake pops… think sticky, think cream cheese, think rich and stuffing, think of the endless stuggle to get them to stay ON the stick… think of pros. Think of copying other ppl’s ideas? But ever heard of Banana pops? Nope, I’m sure u haven’t ‘cos it’s something new… an accident really, that turned out to be something quite interesting.

The minute I lifted off the cover I was in a surprise. The bits of cake had separated into little crumbies like shortbread dough in a food processor. I quickly got a bowl and poured them out, rolled the whole thing into a ball, and there:

So here are some banana pops:

And why not some rainbow-colored ones for children? It’s like fondant, except not so stretchy and pliable, but MUCH easier to work with than crumbly sticky cake pops. It’s pretty much like working with pie dough.

Set them on a tray:

You can coat them with chocolate,


Make them into roses:

And more! Just try it out and tell me what you think.
