Ice Cream cake pops

Inside the Ice cream cake pops

I loved making the leopard print cake pops and the fruit cake pops so when I had to make something for our "pimp/shrink your picnic" at work I knew I wanted to make more cake pops. I have always loved the look of ice cream cake pops so thought I would have a go at making them as they would fit in with the "shrink my picnic" theme. I had lots of coloured cake left over from my gluten-free lemon cake so I used that for the cake part.

To make the pretty floral ice cream cone wrappers I cut a 11.5cm wide circle of Cath Kidston wrapping paper. I then cut the circle into equal quarters, rolled into a cone and put a thin strip of double sided tape along one edge to secure it.
