The eye eats too! You have to admit that dishes and snacks that are nicely served or prepared in an attractive way are mouth-watering. And the so-called cakesicles are no exception. They look like ice cream, but are actually cakes – hence the name, made up of “cake” and “popsicle” (popsicle) – and remind us a lot of cake pops. Are you getting a visit from your best friend or are you planning a party and would like to serve an interesting dessert? We have a cakesicles recipe for you to try!
Cakesicles Recipe – This is how the cake on a stick is made
In principle, you can use any dough recipe you want. So if you already have a favorite cake, it can easily be used as a cakesicles recipe. Then crumble the finished cake (e.g. sand cake) to form cakesicles with the help of ice molds. You will also find plenty of recipes for cakes that are suitable. How about the Red Velvet Cake, for example, which impresses not only with its taste but also its color? Incidentally, the cakesicles and pop cakes are a wonderful way to use cake leftovers. You need:
- 300 g cake leftovers
- 60 g soft butter
- 70 g powdered sugar
- 140 g cream cheese
- 600 g couverture (white can also be colored)
- Ice molds
- Popsicle sticks
For the cakesicles recipe, crumble the cake in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the butter with the powdered sugar and cream cheese. You then add this mass to the cake crumbs and knead a dough out of them with your hands. Then melt 500 g of the couverture in a water bath over low heat. If you use white couverture, you can then color it with food coloring.
Cakesicles Recipe – Instructions Without Dipping
Then put 1 to 2 teaspoons of the couverture in the first well and use it and the spoon to coat the entire shape. Also pierce the hole for the popsicle stick so that it is not covered with chocolate. Repeat for the other hollows and place the mold in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes so that the chocolate hardens faster. Then repeat these steps one more time to get a thick layer of chocolate that won’t break easily.
Then the wells are filled with the prepared cake batter. You need about 1 teaspoon per well. You can make it easier to distribute it in the trough by first shaping the dough into a ball and then into a roll and flattening it a little. This way you don’t have to exert too much pressure in the cavity afterwards, which could break the chocolate. Be careful not to overfill the recess. At the edge there should be 2 to 3 mm space for the other couverture layer. Then press a popsicle stick into the batter and cover the small cakes with a layer of couverture (about 1 teaspoon each). Put the cakesicles in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, then in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then back in the refrigerator for another 60 minutes. The cakesicles recipe is now ready.
Dip the cakesicles in couverture
Alternatively, for the cakesicles recipe, you can first fill the hollows with the batter, insert the popsicle sticks and then let them harden in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes. Before removing the cakesicles, melt the couverture. Then, take a cake on a stick, dip it in the couverture, drain it, and place the cakesicle on parchment paper to set or wrap it in styrofoam. It is important that the couverture is not too thick. If necessary, you can dilute them with a little vegetable oil.
