|400 g||Red Velvet Sponges (See red velvet cupcake recipe to create your own)|
|150 g||Dr. Oetker 26% White Chocolate|
|Dr. Oetker Bright Writing Icing|
|20 g||Dr. Oetker Ready to Roll White Fondant Icing|

Place the red velvet sponge in a food processor and blitz until the sponge is a fine crumb.
Place the red velvet crumb in a bowl with the Cream Cheese Icing and mix with a spatula until the Icing is mixed into the sponge and it begins to stick together.
Using your hands roll the mixture into 8 equal balls and place on a tray lined with greaseproof. Push a fork into each pop and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
Once chilled it’s time to decorate your cake pops, melt the White Chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds then in 10 second bursts stirring after each burst until the chocolate is melted. Dip the cake pops one at a time into the melted White Chocolate, gently tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove any excess chocolate from the cake pops and leave to set on the tray lined with greaseproof paper.
Once the white chocolate has set on the cake pops, gently knead the Blue Fondant Icing on a surface lightly dusted with icing sugar, once soft and pliable roll the fondant out cut out a 3 x 2cm diameter circles. – if you do not a have a cutter this size you can use the base of a piping nozzle. Repeat this step for the green and red fondant so you have 9 circles (3 of each colour).
Place a coloured fondant circle onto each cake pop. Gently knead the black fondant and roll out, cut 9x 1cm circles from the fondant and place on top of each coloured circle.
Take a very small amount of white fondant a roll into a tiny ball, place on the black fondant a press in place, to create a light flicker on the eye ball. Repeat this for each eyeball.
Finally use the Red Writing Icing to create veins on the eyeballs. Your goory eyeballs are not ready to enjoy!
The fondant should stick on the eyeball, however if you are having trouble getting the fondant to stick use a small amount of red writing icing to act as glue.
