Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C).
Prepare 150 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake Deluxe as directed on the packaging and spoon into the baking pan greased with baking spray. Bake the sponge cake for about 30-35 minutes, and immediately after baking, dump onto a cooling grid to cool.
Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Cupcakes and 125 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicated on the packaging. Put the cupcake mix in a decorating bag and heat the cake pop maker. Spray the cavities with baking spray and pipe in the batter. Bake the balls for about 4 minutes until light brown and cooked through and allow to cool. Flavour the buttercream with the flavouring paste.
Cut the sponge cake twice with the cake cutter, fill and spread all around with the buttercream. Leave to set slightly in the fridge.
Knead the sugar paste well and roll it out to a thickness of about 2-3 mm and line the cake with it. Take some of the gold paint on a saucer and stamp on part of the cake with the small brush from the set.
Put some yellow FunCakes Sugar Dots in a plastic bag with some ginger gold powder and shake well to make it a nice even colour.
Heat the 250 g FunCakes Deco Melts Black in the microwave as indicated on the packaging. Dip the straws in this and stick them in the cake balls. After this, dip the cake balls in the black Deco Melts, stick them in a dummy or piece of oasis and let the melts harden in the fridge. Then dip the balls in the melts for a second time. Dip the cake balls you want to have golden sugar dots on in the sugar dots immediately after dipping. Let this set in the fridge again. Spray other cakepops with the FunCakes Metallic Spray Gold.
You can very well freeze the excess cake balls for a later use. They stay good in the freezer for about two months.
Put some FunCakes Piping Gel in a decorating bag and spray a thin line of piping gel along the bottom edge of the cake and stick the black pearls around the cake.
Finally, stick the cakepops into the cake.
