Has anyone purchased and used this Bake Pops maker? It looks handy but the 1 drawback I see is the cake can be dry if they are baked and just coated in chocolate. The one thing I like about the method where we roll the balls with frosting, is that it keeps the cake inside moist. Right now it looks like you get 2 for 1 if you buy it for $19.99. I'm thinking about buying it just to see how it actually works and if my "dryness" theory is right. But then again, I guess it's the same concept as baking cupcakes and I've never had an issue with them being dry. It's all in the mix, I guess. What do you all think?

I read the comments on their facebook page and it seems the shipping and receiving of the pan is very scattered.Many have commented that they haven't received their pan yet after months of ordering...I thought about it and when I read that..I said No...I'm waiting for the Babycakes grill to come here in October...

I read on their site it takes 3-6 weeks for delivery. I'll wait until they get it in the drugstore and buy it then. I'm not patient enough for that amount of waiting. lol

I have the BabyCakes (ordered it from Kohls.com with free shipping. It's so easy and fast. The cake isn't dry at all.

I stopped in our local Bed, Bath and Beyond tonight, and they did not have them. The clerk even looked it up on the computer and they had no record of it at all.

I'm sure Walgreens will have them soon because they always get those "As Seen on TV" items. Probably in time for Christmas.

I ordered mine from Kohl's--it had to be delivered because they didn't have any at the store. I went online and downloaded the coupon codes, and got some money off, plus I got free shipping.

Unfortunately, when it arrived, a screw was loose. I tried to put it back but the metal was stripped. Also, the lid (top) was loose.

I returned it, and got another one. It works great!

I've made cake pops and covered them with chocolate and decorated them, and they hold up at room temp for 2 days...they probably could hold out longer than 2 days but we end up eating them!

For folks who want to know more, I tout these as a healthier alternative to other cake pops, and I call them Cake CakePops (versus Cake Pops which are made by mixing cake and frosting).

I called my local As Seen on TV store and they said they have been ordered and will be getting them next week. I'm gonna try them to see how they work.. they sure look convenient.

I also use the baby cakes machine and I think they are much better filled. Who wants cake without icing?!?! Not me! I'm not sure if the as seen on tv thing has an injector but I'm sure you could find something to use for that purpose.

I went and placed and order for the Bake pops As seen on TV and that was in Jun and still September and nothing. I called them and cancelled the order. Also, I thought of them being dry.
