Every year during the weekend before Christmas day, myself and Jo and our BFF’s like to get together for a 24 hour food marathon. It revolves around a huge Christmas dinner with all of the trimmings and our annual viewings of Elf, Home Alone and The Muppets Christmas Carol. Each year we alternate who provides each course of our Christmas feast. This year, Jo treated us to a titillating turkey and it was my turn to don my apron and get baking some festive puddings. I’ve always wanted to attempt Cake Pops, so when I saw this recipe, I thought it was the perfect time to give them a go!
Christmas is a time for overindulging, so I decided to make two puddings, with the cake pops acting as more of a cheeky snack to nibble on throughout the night, rather than a filling dessert. This year I was inspired by the Christmas edition of The Great British Bake Off, in which Mary Berry (love her!) made an incredible looking Tunis Cake.
