This is convenient, but the original cake pops have the icing mushed into the cake, then dipped, vs these are the cake ONLY with choc. covering..but it's great idea! Thanks for sharing..

The thing I like about it is that you get real cake and not crushed cake.

I would be more drawn to eating these then the original ones. The original ones just sound really gross to me, im not much of a frosting person though. I will have to talk to my husband about buying this for me LOL

I have to agree. The cake thing is what appeals to me as well. I could never get past the mushy cake and icing combo on the other ones. I may have to try this.

I wonder if it leaves a ridge around the middle. I'd like to see some reviews on it first but looks like it would be easy!

I mashed up some redvelvet cake and white chocolate cheesecake together then frosted it with cream cheese frosting..tasted great but I couldnt get over the mushy texture. This seems much better.

I really think that you guys who don't like the mushiness of cake pops are mixing in waaaaay too much binder and/or mixing them in a mixer . Cut back on the binder to the barest minimum and mix by hand with a fork. Much like pie crust, there will be some cake crumbs not fully incorporated.

someone once said that the original way was like eating cake that was already chewed up.. this might be a great option.

Thanks for sharing! I love the babycakes machine, but I like the idea of a pan. I love my non-crushed, non-chewed up cakepops.

Interesting....I also like the baked cake better than the mushed up cake and icing...I can't believe the sticks would stay in though just poked in like that...I like Bakerella's way with the dipped chocolate sticks...

I would like one if they were offered here but the shipping is more to Canada so I'll have to wait and see.

I dont think the sticks are staying in, they are just holding them so they look like they do.. icon_lol.gif

I am totally with you! I always thought they looked cute, but couldn't get past that "mush", it least it is to me. I think I'm willing to make them this way.

Those look really neat! If anyone outside the U.S.A. orders them, I'd be interested to know what you paid in shipping. They don't have an e-mail address to ask questions, and the only reference I can find says that an additional $10 will be charged for orders outside the continental United States. I'd like to know for sure before handing over my credit card details though! Shipping from the U.S.A. is really expensive for those of us at the other end of the world, I'd be surprised if it was that cheap as they'd surely be making a loss on it.

With the baby cakes being on sale, 15% discount and $10 Kohls cash I got my baby cakes cake pop maker for $6.99 so I think I'll stick with that. I also make the other kind with a tablespoon of frosting mixed in and people love them. For anyone that likes those kind try the new cake pop roller, it's awsome.

Hmmm I like it.. although I already picked up two Baby Cakes Cake Pop machines... so I guess i will have to stick with that.

I would have loved the babycakes too, but my lovely friend priced out how much it would cost to send one to me here in N Z, and she would have practically had to mortgage her house to pay for it, way too expensive! I envy you guys in the U.S.A. and all your cool gadgets at reasonable prices icon_smile.gif

I agree with leah_s...maybe too much binder? Mixing with a fork does work well also. I haven't met anyone who didn't absolutely love the flavor and texture of a cake pop/ball (not to say that I won't meet someone soon! *fingers crossed!) Still waiting for my cake pop roller to come in (I got it at the introductory price of $199)! It will be well worth the money as I do orders of about 200 quite often!!! As far as the bake pops pans, I think I'm going to order a set anyway so when I do come across someone who doesn't like them, I have an alternative! Thanks to the OP for posting!

Woah! That cake pop roller is nice, but pricey.

It is pricey but worth every penny for the time it save coompared to rolling by hand.

I believe it! It was cut, cut and swoop, and not even 3 minutes late 20 cake balls. Maybe one day...(sigh)...icon_wink.gif

The new Easy Roller is fantastic! I got mine delivered right after the 4th of July. No more rolling cake balls by hand again! Everyone I know that has had my cake pops absolutely loved them. Just don't use much binder! Also, if you make your cake balls while the cake is still warm, the cake holds together really well without any binder. Just be sure to dip your stick into the chocolate before inserting it into the cooled cake ball. icon_biggrin.gif

Please don't shoot me but I don't like cake pops. I tried one just today (just in case it was different) but nope, still don't like them. I think they are too mushy and sweet. Maybe this cake pop maker will be different.

I checked the order page to see if they had info on international shipping, which they state they do, an extra $10 on the website, but the address, zip (postal code for me) fill in page, is only for the US?

The price is shown as 19.99 plus $6.99 shipping, but if you want the deal, two pans for one, you have to pay an additional 6.99 shipping charge.

But... If you watch the video, its states, call about free shipping?

And... if you're quick to notice, at the very start of the video, there's a flash notice that comes up that puts a kinker in that free shipping.

You have to be quick to see it, as it's there, then instantly gone but it, the flash notice says... 'If you upgrade your order'.

Sooo, I'm guessing that might mean, you have to order more pans than the original offer to get the free shipping,? Or maybe purchase a more expensive pop pan set than the pan shown?

All in all, it seems a bit fishy to me. As much as I like the idea of the pan, I'd want to know a lot more before ordering one. The fact they have no email in their contact link is offputting too. How can you not have an email when you're selling to the public?

Yes, no phone number and no email. I don't like ordering that stuff that comes on TV. This is one of those TV products. I've heard enough about people getting charged double for what they ordered and not being able to call back for a refund, or refunds not being made.

I should wait. Good idea, though.
