Traditional Cake Pops vs Cake Pop Makers and Cake Pop Pans

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hello CCers!

I have been contemplating purchasing a Babycakes cake pop maker and was wondering who out there has used any of the cake pop makers or pans and how the cake pops from these machines compare to the traditional cake pops. I have seen some youtube videos but need some insight from my fellow ccers. Can't wait to her your opinions.

I have the babycakes and LOVE IT! So easy and they are baked real quick. I have also done them the reg. way and to me personnaly they are way to sweet and I am a big sweets person (lol). I ordered the cake pop pans from tv but never received them but did see them at bed bath & beyond but I think Im gonna stay with my babycakes.

I have the cake pop pan but I love the traditional cake pops. they're just so good. I used my cake pop pan twice for cake pops and now it sits at the bottom of my baking pan cabinet. I do plan on using it for a polka dot cake however

We own 2 BabyCakes cake pop makers and we love them. The cake recipe that comes with these are delicious. They bake quick and are very easy to use.

The taste is like eating a real peice of cake. We don't care for the oher kind of cake pops that have icing in them, the texture is mushy in your mouth.

I'm sure it's all personal preference, but once we used the BabyCakes maker we would not go back to any other recipes.

Good luck thumbs_up.gif

I agree with globalgatherings, the pops from the babycakes maker are my favorite.

So glad you posted this, as I've wondered about the Babycakes maker for while! I have tried traditional pops and don't like the texture (reminds me of eating cake that's already been chewed)! I recently got to try Babycakes pops and LOVE them! Just a bite-size piece of cake! I prefer them, and now wont hesitate to purchase the Babycakes machine! Thanks for posting!

I actually did an extensive review several months ago, this thread has everything you'd ever what to know about the Babycakes Pop maker... I was even thanked by the manufacturer icon_biggrin.gif

Has anyone put these pops on sticks? How well do they hold up? That's where my curiosity has been.

Still can't buy one here in Oz icon_sad.gif

I wish the supplier would think about that too!!

Life's too short to make cake pops.

I put them on sticks with no problems. Dip stick in chocolate then into cake ball and let set up in freezer for 15 minutes or so before dipping. After dipping gently tap stick on your hand so excess can drip off. Tapping on anything else may cause the ball to fall off the stick.

I love my Baby Cakes pop maker and part of my motivation for buying it was the thread ScratchSF did. I found they are just a bit dry for me so I use brownie mix instead of regular cake mix. I like the maker but man it takes me so long to dip and decorate...I feel cake pop challenged.

I have not had a chance to do the taste test as yet. I HATE my Babycakes icon_cry.gificon_mad.gif The cakeballs never come out right icon_sad.gif They never form on the top, they end up looking like mis-shaped pyramids on the top. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but it's driving me CRAZY!!! I was so excited when I finally got the machine and then every cake recipe I've tried in there comes out AWFUL!!! If anyone has any suggestions I would sooooooooooo appreciate it. icon_sad.gificon_cry.gificon_mad.gifthumbsdown.gif
