    Spoon icing into piping bag fitted with small plain tube. Pipe icing over popcakes. Stand at room temperature until set. Serve.

Notes

You need to press the cake mixture into balls using your hands, ­ do not roll as the mixture will crumble. You will need 25 lollypop or paddle pop sticks for this recipe. When dipping the popcakes in chocolate, tilt the bowl of chocolate to one side, so the chocolate is deep enough to completely coat balls and a bit of the stick in chocolate, to ensure the balls don't fall off the sticks. Push the sticks of the popcakes into the top of a cardboard egg carton to dry.
