Preparation steps

1.
For the cake: preheat the oven to 160°C (140° fan) 325°F gas 3. Grease a 23 cm | 9" square cake tin and line the base with non-stick baking paper.
2.
Put all the cake ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat with an electric whisk until smooth and blended. The mixture should drop easily from a spoon, add a little water if it is too stiff.
3.
Spoon into the tin and bake for 30-35 minutes until risen and springy to the touch. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool completely. Chill the cake for at least 2 hours until firm.
4.
Cut the chilled cake into 25 squares and insert a lollipop stick into each square.
5.
For the coating: melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering (not boiling) water. Remove from the heat and gently stir in a little food colouring until blended. Dip into the melted chocolate and stand in a glass or cup and leave to set. Reserve the remaining chocolate in the bowl and keep warm.
6.
To decorate: pipe a bow onto each parcel cake pop. Add a dot of the reserved chocolate to the centre of each bow - reheating to melt the chocolate if necessary. Leave to set.
