The recipe could be a welcome distraction for the five million Sydneysiders stuck in lockdown, which looks set to continue well beyond Friday’s intended end date after a trail of Covid seeping across the city’s south-west touched 21 new exposure sites.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian revealed the ‘vast majority’ of the 112 new community transmission in figures announced on Monday had occurred in the Fairfield local government area, 30km from the CBD.

Deputy Premier John Barilaro admitted ‘we’ve lost control of the virus’ and said more stringent restrictions are likely, before dismissing the idea of a night-time curfew.

To make the simple cake balls, Ms Head mixes a box of Betty Crocker ‘Devil’s Food’ cake mix with a tub of Betty Crocker chocolate fudge icing.

She rolls the mixture into bite-sized balls and freezes them for about 20 minutes so that they are easier to ice.

Ms Head then melts 250 grams of milk chocolate and dips the frozen balls into the liquid mixture.
