The hottest new trend in cake design puts a spin on the traditional sense of cake itself. At first glance, a cake pop looks nothing like the birthday or wedding cakes we are so used to seeing, and later devouring. But once you taste the cake-on-a-stick there’s no denying the delicious factor.
Similar to Dunkin’ Donuts‘ beloved munchkins, or as they’re more commonly known, donut holes, cake pops are a round, bite-sized sweet served on a stick like a lollypop.
They are decorative and adorable, and perfect for any kind of celebration whether it be a child’s birthday party or a sweet snack at an office party. You can decorate them with frosting and sprinkles for an added pop of creativity, or leave them plain for those who prefer something sweet-but-not-too-sweet.
The Babycakes Cake Pop Maker CP-12 is available online at thebabycakesshop.com and Amazon.com or from retailers like BJ’s Wholesale and Walmart, and is priced around $25.00. Fast and very easy to use, you simply drop about a tablespoon of batter into the holes and cook them for about 4-5 minutes.
Use a box mix like Betty Crocker, or if you have extra time whip up some homemade batter, they’re delicious either way! The results are light and airy bite-sized delights. Christine Jandreau is a recent cake-pop consumer who is getting creative by planning an apple cider donut hole recipe as well as glazed pops, yumm!
Small enough to be tucked into a cabinet, the only tricky part to using the cake pop maker is the clean-up. The gadget must be hand washed, and because the cord doesn’t detach you have to be extra careful not to get it wet. But that’s nothing a little patients and a steady hand can’t fix, and I’m sure it would be well worth it when you get to eat your sweet treats!
The Babycakes Cake Pop Maker cooks 12 cake pops or donut holes at once, and because it takes only a few minutes you’ll be up to your elbows in the mini cakes in no time! The gadget comes equipped with the basic tools needed including a fork tool, Cake Pop Treat sticks, and a Cake Pop cooling and decorating stand. And the manuel includes great tips and recipes so you can make the most of this delicious gadget!
So the next time you’re looking for a fast and fun way to make party favors, or just want to try a new dessert that everyone will love, the cake pop maker is your best bite!
