    • 120g Plain white flour
    • 140g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 1½tsp Baking powder
    • 40g Butter (unsalted) softened

    • 120ml Milk (whole)
    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) large

    Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the sponge bounces back when touched or when a skewer comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, then leave in the fridge overnight to stale.

    To make the buttercream, place the butter in a large bowl and cream until pale and fluffy, then add the icing sugar and beat until smooth. Add the milk and vanilla extract then beat until light and fluffy.

    • 125g Butter (unsalted) softened
    • 300g Icing sugar
    • 2tsp Milk (whole)

    Remove the cakes from the fridge and crumble into a large bowl until it resembles fine breadcrumbs, then mix in some of the buttercream until the mixture can be formed into small balls.

    Form balls of the mixture by rolling between your hands, then place on a baking tray and put in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. You should get about 20 balls.

    Melt the white chocolate then remove from the heat and add the food colouring until you have a colour you are happy with. Next dip a lollipop stick into the melted chocolate and push into the cake ball. Once you have sticks in every ball, dip each one in chocolate to entirely cover the ball, immediately decorate with coloured sprinkles and leave to set.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 200g White chocolate
    • 1tsp Blue food colouring or pink!
    • Sprinkle decorations
