Aren’t these completely adorable! Many bakers will know about the rise of the craze of the cake pop – a small ball of cake, wrapped in cute frosting, and set to dander on a stick. It’s a sugar-rush cross between a cake and a lollipop. I must admit that they never seem to have taken off in the UK in quite the same way as they did in the US but we do see them propping up the counter and winking seductively, so to speak, at the big coffee shop chains.
Anyway, Bakerella became famous for inventing the variant cupcake pop several years ago, which seems like an even better expression of our fancy for the small and cute in our baked goods. Since then has featured numerous beautifully photographed tutorials on her blog (as well as on TV shows) so that we can all recreate them. I’ll be frank and say that I am clearly never going to be able to reproduce the delights of these Paddington cake pops and so I’m not even going to try. But I am delighted that they exist because I love Paddington, and so does the Munchkin. I’d love to know how they turn out if anyone gives them a go!
