How to make Lemon Cake Balls or pops

This would make a fun activity to do with the children, as there is no cooking required. Nana's afternoon treats are bite size, so if you can stop at one, they won't spoil dinner!

Here we have used lemon flavours, but you can use any flavour combination you like. Chocolate cake with chocolate icing would also be yummy.

 400grams of yellow cake, grated
 For the Icing: 200g icing sugar
 70g of lemon curd
 1 tablespoon of milk

 For Coating:250g of chocolate
1. Use a hand held grater to grate the cake in to crumbs.
Place in large mixing bowl.

2. Into a small bowl place the icing sugar, lemon curd, and milk. Mix on a low speed. It should be the consistency of honey.

3. Add half of the icing mixture to the cake crumbs. Mix on low speed. Keep adding icing until the mixture starts to join together.

4. Roll into balls and place on a tray covered in baking paper.
Leave to firm up in the fridge for about 1 hour.

5. Break the chocolate into pieces. Place into microwave for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat process until chocolate is melted.

6. Place a ball on a tooth pick and using a teaspoon coat the call of over with chocolate. Place on tray to set.

7. When dry place in tiny cupcake case. Serve with tea or coffee and enjoy.  This recipe makes about 40 bite sized treats.
Be careful it's hard to stop at one! Be sure to tell me if you make some.
