Preparation

Baking

  1. Using a handheld electric whisk on the highest setting, beat together the soft butter, sugar and lemon flavouring until the mixture is creamy. Add each egg one at a time and keep whisking between additions.
  2. Blend the dry ingredients together in a second bowl and sift into the butter mixture. Thoroughly stir everything together again.
  3. Grease a loaf tin well, spoon in the batter and bake for 45-50 minutes.
  4. When the cake comes out of the oven, leave it to cool in the tin for a bit. Then turn out onto a wire rack. 

Frosting

  1. Using a handheld electric whisk, beat together the soft butter and cream cheese to form a creamy consistency. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  2. To make the lolly cakes, cut away the hard and dark parts from the baked cake. Cut the cake into small cubes and place them in a bowl.
  3. Using your hands, coat the cubes in the frosting and then press them into the ice-lolly slots in the tray. Make sure that each slot is completely full. Push an ice-lolly stick into each filled slot and press down the mixture once again.
  4. Before decorating, put the lolly cakes in the freezer and leave them for one hour.
  5. Stir up the metallic cake glaze, carefully remove the lolly cakes from their slots and dip them in the glaze. Now decorate how you want.

    Tip: To get a nice smooth surface, dip the lolly cakes in melted chocolate glaze before coating them with the metallic glaze.
