Di Ya Wela host Jabi Matsoso shows how to make easy, Chocolate Cake Pops with an easy-to-follow recipe using using the spare off-cuts from any chocolate cake.

Behind every successful person, there is a substantial amount of chocolate.  Most people can’t imagine a life without chocolate.  Bakers often find themselves with too much chocolate.  Sometimes, they even find themselves with too much cake. So you’ve made that custom heart shaped chocolate cake for a party.  It looks great!  But now you have leftover chunks of cake cut-offs from shaping that cake. Here’s the perfect thing to do with all those cut-offs… make CAKE POPS!

I remember several years ago first hearing the term Cake Pop.  I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what that could possible mean.  I had this strange image in my head about some basic frozen treat.  I could have never imagined the rich, decadent treat I discovered, a bite-sized chocolaty ball of moist and delicious cake and creamy icing mashed together, decorated with more icing, and popped right onto a lollipop stick.  They’re fascinating.  It’s probably the novelty of them being miniature cakes on a stick that is so appealing.  There’s a playfulness to them. If you’ve never had one, you have to try.

Growing up, Jabi Matsoso has learned a lot of things from her mother. Now she’s passing that knowledge on! For this recipe, Jabi Matsoso, host of the baking show Di Ya Wela, uses cake off-cuts from a custom cake she made just before. In this video, Jabi shows how to make delicious Chocolate Cake Pops (or what she calls “I DO” Popsicles) out of those cake cut-offs using a slab of chocolate and some butter cream frosting. Try out the recipe and enjoy!
