Have you ever made cake pops?
Have you ever made cake pops? If so, what tips do you have for someone trying to make them?
I got a “Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker” for Christmas and I was googling reviews of the appliance on Amazon and also looking at cake pop recipes on blogs and sites. It seems that you can make cake pops from taking actual cake, crumbling it up with frosting into a mushy mixture, freezing it and then making balls from it and sticking the sticks into that. On one blog they said that the taste of that type of mixture was not that good. Also that it’s a lot of work.
The Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker got mixed reviews as far as how successfully it made cake pops. Negative comments were that it got too hot and didn’t make spherical shapes, it made “fat muffin” type shapes. Also that the cake stuck onto the sticks was not sturdy enough to dip into frosting.
I am just wondering if other Jellies have either used a cake pop maker or made cake pops from other methods and what worked for you (or your friends if they have tried it)?
