The Babycakes Cake Pop Maker
GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-- Tiny, bite-sized desserts are all the rage. Babycakes Cake Pop Maker is a product that makes bite-sized cake balls or donut holes. It's the size of a waffle iron or Panini maker with 12 holes to pour your cake batter.
Sasha Wolff gets pretty creative with her cake balls. She takes a baked cake, crumbles it, then adds a half can of frosting, smashes it all together and forms her cake balls, dipping them in a candy or chocolate coating to top it off.
Babycakes makes their own brand of cake mix and glaze, so we used that to test it out. There's no frosting mixed into the Babycakes cake pops, it's just a cake mix.
In less than five minutes, the cake pops baked up and easily came out. There was no sticking and the cake pops were nice and round. After cooling them and placing them in the freezer, we dipped them in the glaze, and again, placed them in the freezer.
The glaze didn't seem to harden like Sasha's candy or chocolate coating. When we compared Sasha's cake balls with the Babycakes, the Babycakes were really dry. I wasn't a fan of the glaze coating either.
Overall, we liked the Babycakes machine. It was fun, easy and the cake pops didn't stick, but we would suggest using your own cake and coating recipe.
We found the Babycakes Cake Pop maker at Bed Bath & Beyond for $19.99.
