I know cake pops are every where right now. To be honest, I don't really care for them all that much. I am not a fan of chocolate and not a fan of "wet" cake. I know it's not wet or raw cake, but crumbled cake mixed with the frosting doesn't taste good to me. Maybe it's because I don't really like frosting either? I do think they are ridiculously cute to look at though.
Anyway, I just heard about Babycakes cake pops maker from Baby Gizmo. You can read Holly's review of the cake pop maker here. This maker creates perfectly round cake balls or donut holes. The inside is more like real cake and I can dip them in white chocolate, which I actually like, then decorate with fun sprinkles. To top it off, it takes a significantly less amount of time to make them then the "real" cake pops that you see popping up everywhere. You mean I can actually make something cute, fun and yummy without spending hours in the kitchen? Yes please!
So now, I am at the Babycakes website and realize that the cake maker is only $25! serisouly? It also comes with a cooling rack to put the sticks in when done decorating. And it comes with a recipe booklet. I think that is a great investment for all the cute cake pops I can make for parties. And I can't wait to make these as treats for birthday presents! They are just so darn cute. I think this may be another treat I make for the guest at Chloe's first birthday!
