Rattle Cake Pops

  • Total Time

  • Makes



Oh Baby! What could be cuter at a baby shower than these adorable rattle cake pops? You can decorate these vanilla cake pops a beautiful baby blue, pink or perhaps a gender neutral yellow which looks equally as sweet. 


If you've got leftover cake crumbs from another bake, this is a great way to use them up!


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C, gas mark 3) and line a muffin tin with muffin cases.

  2. To make the sponge; place the flour, sugar, baking powder and butter into a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until you get a sandy consistency.

    • 120g Plain White Flour
    • 120g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (we like Billington's)
    • 1½ tsp Baking Powder
    • 40g Butter (Unsalted, Softened )
  3. Whisk the milk and egg together in a jug then slowly add to the flour mixture and beat until smooth and well mixed.

    • 120ml Milk (Whole)
    • 1 Egg (Free Range, Large)
  4. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the sponge bounces back when touched or when a skewer comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, then leave in the fridge overnight to stale.

  5. To make the buttercream, place the butter in a large bowl and cream until pale and fluffy, then add the icing sugar and beat until smooth. Add the milk and vanilla extract then beat until light and fluffy.

    • 125g Butter (Unsalted, Softened)
    • 300g Icing Sugar
    • 2 tsp Milk (Whole)
    • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract (We Like Nielsen Massey)
  6. Remove the cakes from the fridge and crumble into a large bowl until it resembles fine breadcrumbs, then mix in some of the buttercream until the mixture can be formed into small balls.

  7. Form balls of the mixture by rolling between your hands, then place on a baking tray and put in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. You should get about 20 balls.

  8. Melt the coloured chocolate candy melts. Next dip a lollipop stick into the melted chocolate and push into the cake ball. Once you have sticks in every ball, dip each one in chocolate to entirely cover the ball, immediately decorate with sprinkle decorations or melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the cake pops and leave to set. 

    • 200g Coloured Candy Melts
    • Handful Sprinkle decorations
    • 50g White Chocolate
