Review: Babycakes Cake Pop Maker

Wednesday, March 16, 2011
To continue my very unhealthy obsession of Cake Pops, I was further drug deeper into my addiction last week when I went to our Kohl's grand opening and found on the bottom shelf in the appliance section a Babycakes Cake Pop Maker. I was so excited when I found this, I forced stopped myself my jumping up and down like a little kid on Christmas. I thought that this would be great way to make my Cake Pops more round and be easier to make and clean up.

So today, I finally tried it out after going to the store to buy my favorite cake mix, Funfetti. After mixing the batter and warming up the Cake Pop Maker which only took about three minutes, I read over the directions and then decided to try out one Cake Pop before a full batch of 11. After several tests, what I found to work the best was to fill the Cake Pop molds using a tablespoon. This was a lot easier than filling each mold using a zip loc bag with batter and it was a lot less messy.

The first Cake Pop was a clear success. The next step was to see how they would cool and hold up when I melted my candy and coated the Cake Pop. I was very surprised how quickly the cake pops cooled. After placing a candy coated stick into the Cake Pop and refrigerating for about 15 minutes I coated about 10 Cake Pops without any problems.

The only drawback for the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker was that the bottom half of the Cake Pop cooked faster than the upper half so I had to be careful not to overcook the Cake Pop and in the middle of the cooking process, I flipped each Cake Pop over for even cooking.

Overall, I am very satisfied with my $24.99 purchase from Kohl's. I would recommend anyone who loves Cake Pops just as much as I do to buy the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker.

so i guess using this would mean that it wont be a regular cakepop since no icing is mixed in with the cake batter. so is it still moist inside when you bite into it? it would be less calories though, rite.!?
