Perfect cake pops!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Babycakes Mini Cake Pop Maker (Kitchen)First off, this mini cake pop maker is a life saver! I used to make cake pops the traditional way with crumbled cake and frosting, then followed by rolling them into balls but that whole process took far too much time so I decided to invest in this machine. With this machine I don't have to worry about the consistency of the cake pop and the frosting (when it's too moist the cake pop will break through the lollipop stick or it can sometimes break when you coat your chocolate due to the weight- very frustrating!).
The first time I used this machine, I used brownie mix and it turned out to be a disaster. The brownies would stick on the non sticking plate even though I rubbed/sprayed cooking spray on it every single time. The second time I used the cake mix box sold in stores and they came out to be perfect! Greasing the plates were not required because they popped right out and in perfect shape! When I poured too much cake batter into the maker, it'd overflow and leave extra... Read more

Great for kids or a decadent chocolatey treat! :),
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Babycakes Mini Cake Pop Maker (Kitchen)Great cake pop maker! I am so glad I purchased this machine! My original broke so I ordered a replacement and decided to keep both because the cake pops turn out so well! My younger sisters (ages 1, 3, and 9) all adore making cake pops with me, and the pops are always a hit when family and friends are over. 5 stars for sure!
-BEST TIP: When making white cake mix, add white baking chips (white chocolate chips) to the batter! It adds a special creamy and richness and makes for delicious cake pops. I love to add chocolate chips to chocolate cake pops as well! They are always most raved about in the family and I can rest assured that even if I mess up a recipe, the chocolate chips will cover any blemishes with deliciousness! You can even use candy like hershey's kisses, Reese's pieces, and snickers! Yellow cake pops covered in nickers and peppermint are my favorites :)
-Use inexpensive cake mix if the cake pops are for personal enjoyment. I use the... Read more

A good little product for those of us who are non-pros,
This review is from: Babycakes CP-12 Cake Pop Maker, 12 Cake Pop Capacity, Purple (Kitchen)I like it. It's easy to use, takes little care and comes with some nice accessories, such as pop sticks, a drying rack, a little fork and a syringe. Though these items are not made for heavy use, they are more than adequate for us non-pros. If you follow the instructions, you can easily produce doughnut holes/cake pops. This item produces more pops in one batch than other makers on the market. I suspect the balls may be slightly smaller, but to a 6-year-old, that doesn't matter. A dozen at a time is more or less a 'batch' so this model works well. The fork makes it easy to remove the balls from the maker and put them on a cooling rack. We've used a white cake mix, a brownie mix and a gingerbread mix and are pleased with the results. My wife used the injector to put melted marscapone into the gingerbread balls. It did a good job and the results are tasty. The key is to follow the instructions and to have someone who knows how the different type of mixes bake. The brownie mix takes a... Read more
