Cake pops seems more festive than cupcakes. And it allow you to eat less. This $25 gadget will make it easy to host a cake pop decorating party since it takes a matter of minutes to bake 12 cake pops. I think that it is handy if you wish to throw the party in your backyard or if you prefer to not use your stove. I read good reviews about the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker. The cake pop maker features power and ready lights, latching handle and it comes with a supply of cake pop sticks, a fork tool and a cake pop cooling and decorating stand.
For a cake decorating party, plan for a couple of stands or glasses to store the cake pops that are ready to decorate and give a display to each kid to put their decorated cake pops.

Made Cake Pops a few weeks ago – it was a messy business!

A machine to make cake pops is not necessary. A great way (and most usual) is to combine cake bits and icing together into little balls. Quick, easy and fun. Tons of recipes and how-to tips are on the internet. No machine required! Plus, it sounds like it would be quite tedious and, like Sue Green said, messy business to fill the little indents with batter.

Cakepops are not simply cake shaped like a ball! Like commenter C. said, they are MUCH better when mixed with icing…that makes it a TRUE cake pop! This machine is rather silly.

C and Carly: Like with any kitchen gadgets, some people enjoy them while others find them useless. I like the concept behind the machine but I never used it. Therefore, I don’t know how it performs and if it is or not a waste of time or if it is easy to use.

I love my Babycakes cake pop maker! You get much less wasted cake than trying to scoop out balls of premade cake…and if you put the batter into a plastic bag and cut off the tip, you can get the perfect amount with no mess at all. Definitely worth the 25 dollars.
