Pumpkin Cake Pops

I had originally planned to make Pumpkin Cake pops the usual cake pop way, with leftover bits of sponge cake and buttercream. However I posted a recipe here for Chocolate Truffles made with Alpro Soya cream and as the recipe made quite a few I decided I would make some of them into Pumpkins.

So here is how to make Pumpkin Truffle Pops.

  • First make the truffles as per the recipe here.
  • Melt Silver Spoon Orange Buttons in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. I used a very small jug hooked over the edge of the pan.


  • Dip one end of the lollipop stick into the melted orange buttons and into the truffle. This will act as a glue and prevent the truffle from spinning around.


  • Put the truffles into the freezer for approximately 10 minutes.

  • Dip the truffles into the melted buttons to coat. As they have been in the freezer the orange coating will set quite quickly and not drip.

  • Decorate with pumpkin faces.


Unfortunately the writing icing that I used went very runny after a while and all the Pumpkins looked like they had been crying!


I am entering this post into Mummy Mishaps I love Cake Halloween Challenge - truffles are cakes right?
