Hello everyone!
I have never done cake pops and I want to make them for my son's 3rd birthday party. Should I get the babycakes pop maker or should I make them the regular way? Which one is better? Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

Regular way: better taste

Babycakes: faster ,but does not taste as good (good, but not as good)

I vote for babycakes injected with chocolate ganache. I use mix with pudding in to to insure a moist cake. the ganache is injected with a pastry bag and the long thin tip. I personally think the cake pops taste pre-chewed and overly sweet. since I started offering babycakes, I get several orders each week for kid's parties

I have never had the baby cakes, but I find cake balls repulsive. Sticky, slimy, gloppy, wet and soggy. Pre-chewed cake, anyone? Blarg!

I think the baby cakes would be a nice alternative. Since it is just cake batter.

so as long as I have a moist recipe cake I shouldn't have any problems with the babycakes cake pop maker right?

I asked my family if I should buy the cake pop maker......the answer was "NO WAY!!" They love the regular cake pops...as do my friends.
Although what southerncross suggested sounds yummy!!!! I may buy one and try those!

Moist cake recipe on the babycakes pop maker...delicious. It's real cake.

The regular ones should really be called "cake truffles." That's not cake.

You should make it both ways really, since the regular way doesn't take any special equipment. Then you could have your family and friends taste them and decide.

My whole family hates the regular ones with a passion. Pre-chewed cake, raw cake (they didn't know they were not raw, but thought so), too-sweet yucky things...they called them all kinds of names. I did try, though. And you should, too.

Thanks!

I got lucky today! I bought the last cake pop maker at my local kohls! I only paid $17.99 because my friend gave me a coupon! yay! I can't wait to try it! Thank you all for your input!

I'm glad I found this thread! I bought one last week and then I thought, "oh no, it won't have the frosting mixed in". But then I was thinking that I could just inject it into the center. So it turns out that you guys have similar ideas.

Why does it have to be injected? i that in case the cake is not moist enough?

I think it would be nice to be injected for extra flavor and richness, not to make up for dryness.

This thread caught my eye only because I tested the heck out of my pop maker and there is an epic thread with reviews:

Have fun!
