In our third episode of the Shane Smith Afternoon Tea series, Shane takes cake pops to another level with his fanciful Victoria sponge cake truffles which are flavoured with vanilla & strawberry jam then dipped in white chocolate. He also take the humble honeycomb and makes it afternoon-tea-worthy with the addition of fennel seeds and a dip in dark chocolate. No-bake treats for any occasion!
