Neon Cake Pops

Cake Pops are always a great hit with children, so they are great for a birthday party!


  • 185 g butter, softened
  • 185 g caster sugar
  • 3 medium eggs, beaten
  • 275 g plain flour
  • 1 sachet (1 tsp) dr. oetker baking powder (gluten free)
  • dr. oetker natural lemon extract
  • dr. oetker neon sugar
  • 6 level tbsp of vanilla buttercream
  • 3 x 150g bars of dr. oetker fine cooks’ white chocolate
  • pack of 15 (20cm) lolly sticks
  • dr. oetker cake release spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 160ºC (140?C fan oven, 325 F, gas 3). Spray an 11cm x 22cm loaf tin with Cake Release Spray to grease.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time with a spoon of flour and mix well.
  3. Add the rest of the flour and Baking Powder and mix until the ingredients are combined. Add a few drops of Natural Lemon Extract to taste.
  4. Bake in the oven for 75-90 mins until firm to the touch. Remove from the tin, place on a cooling rack and cool completely.
  5. Remove all of the outer surfaces of the cake to leave just the pale coloured cake and break into crumbs.
  6. Mix the crumbs and the buttercream together to form balls – if they are a little crumbly add a little more buttercream.
  7. Roll into 14 balls and place on a tray, cover with cling film and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  8. Melt the bars of Fine Cooks’ Chocolate and dip a lolly stick into the melted chocolate to coat about 2cm of each stick. Gently push a stick into the centre of each cake ball.
  9. Dip the ball into the melted chocolate, cover completely and roll in the neon sugar.
  10. Secure the stick into a block of polystyrene or florists oasis and allow them to set.
