For the Cakesicles:

  • 1 cup chocolate buttercream
  • 6x 80g Beacon Heavenly Ivory Cream

  • 24 popsicle sticks
  • 1 cup pastel pink royal icing

    6 Beacon Hens Eggs
  • Sprinkles and cake decor


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and prepare three baking sheets  
  2. Place the Golden Cloud chocolate cake mix into a large bowl.
  3. In a jug, whisk together the oil, water and eggs. Make a well in the centre of the cake mix and add the wet ingredients. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and lump free.
  4. Pour the mixture on the baking sheet and spread.
  5. Repeat this process for all the cakes.
  6. Place the trays in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  7. Crumble the prepared cake sheets into fine crumbs in three separate bowls. Divide the buttercream amongst the cakes and incorporate until the cake holds together if squeezed.
  8. Melt the chocolate in a bowl using the microwave, heat and in 30 seconds intervals, stirring between each time. Divide into 3 separate bowls, and colour the one bowl pink and the other yellow.
  9. Spoon one tablespoon of chocolate into each cavity of the cakesicle moulds and paint it along the sides and bottom of the mould making sure that the opening when the popsicle stick enters, remains clear
  10. Chill in the freezer for 3-5 minutes, paint second layer and chill again.
  11. Press the cake mixture into the moulds leaving a small space at the top for a final layer of chocolate.
  12. Insert a popsicle stick halfway into the cakesicle
  13. Spoon a teaspoon of chocolate over the top and spread it out thin. Use an offset spatula or knife to scrape off any excess white chocolate. Repeat this process, filling all cavities and mixing the chocolates and cake flavours as preferred
  14. Chill in the fridge until set then unmould.
  15. Decorate with the different coloured royal icing over the cakesicles in a zigzag pattern, top with a mixture of crushed whole hens’ eggs, sprinkles and cake décor
