I haven't heard of that one yet. Does she possibly mean a melter to melt the chocolate? Cake pops are generally cake and frosting mushed together and then dipped in chocolate. Good luck! They are fun to make and people love them!

I googled cake pop makers and got this one

http://thebabycakesshop.com/products/cake-pop-makers/cp-12

I've got a party to go to this weekend and all my husbands co-workers are begging him to get me to make oreo truffles. I might makes these too!

So what do I do, Bake a yellow cake and use white icing and chocolate cake with chocolate icing?

This might be what she is looking for. :confused3

I saw the babycake maker that was linked in a previous post at JCPenneys. It was surprisingly in the catalog pickup area. I had to wait awhile for them to go retrieve my catalog order from the back, so I had a little time to look around the area and the babycake line was there.

Wow- your thread has piqued my interest. I have the Cake Pops book, but haven't attempted any of the designs yet. I've heard that they are very time consuming to make! I wonder if this babycakes machine is quicker? Has anyone tried it before?

Just looked at JCPenny.com and they did not have the babycakes cakepops maker. They did have the cupcake maker, though.

I've made these before without the use of the specialized cooker. When I have made them, I have cooked a 9 x 13 cake and while it's still warm put it into my mixer with a container of frosting and mix until completely mixed. I've used white frosting for white cake and chocolate for chocolate. After mixing put in fridge to cool and then roll into balls and then roll balls into colored chocolate of your choice (the meltable chocolate wafers). They are absolutely GREAT!

I have made these before as well, they are very tasty. With the cake pop maker you can't make them the same way though since you can't mix the frosting in with the baked cake.

How long do these keep. If making for a party, how long in advance can you make them?

Check out cake pops at bakerella dot com

My SIL makes fabulous designs. She makes them the way the PP stated....9x13 cakes mixed with frosting. She recommends 2/3 can of frosting per cake. Roll about the size of a blow pop sucker, chill on cookie tray lined with wax paper, insert sucker stick and dip in melted chocolate. I like to use white tinted to my preference. And of course sprinkles ;-)

You can freeze them, I've made them two weeks in advance and frozen them then defrosted the day before and they were fine. If you don't want to freeze them, I've also made them and left them in the fridge for a week and they were still good. Basically they are cake / frosting covered in chocolate so will last about as long as cake normally would.

I make them this way too and they are so good! I only use about 1/2 a can of frosting. The babycakes maker looks interesting but I don't think they would taste nearly as good. The frosting kind of makes it. ;) Maybe get your daughter the bakerella book and then some supplies?

Don't waste your money on the maker. When I make them, I use an ice cream scoop. I have a few different sizes so I can make small ones, medium ones and HOLY COW THAT'S BIG! You could maybe make up a kit for her by purchasing everything needed: cake mixes, frosting, recipe books, sticks, paper cups, melting chocolate, different things to decorate them with. Maybe put it all in a cute plastic container of some kind.

These are super easy. I made them for St. Patty's Day for DD's class. I crushed one package of oreos in my food processor and then mushed that together with 1 eight ounce block of cream cheese (at room temp) and then rolled 1 inch balls (it made 36 of them). Stuck those in the fridge for about 15 minutes to harden some and then dipped them in green melting chips (Wilton brand I found at Michaels) and then sprinkles St. Patty's Day sprinkles on them. Put them back in the fridge to harden and then packed them up for the kids. Deadly delicious!

I saw it in the most recent Kohls flyer, but haven't looked at the store yet. I thought it was the cupcake maker, that's what I'd like to get my DD. But when I looked closer it said cake pop maker. I think it was on sale for $29.99. HTH :goodvibes

I made oreo balls for St. Pattys (same concept but with oreos & cream cheese) and I munched on the leftovers for about a week? I think as long as they are kept in the fridge they will be OK.

That is really interesting! What was the material she was working with? It looked like fondant? Or is that what the cake/frosting mixture looks like?

I've never made cake pops before, but I might make some for my DDs Sweet 16 party.

I have this pan and we used it for a birthday party last year. Brownies will hold up and cookies- but the cake fell off. Maybe if you used a dense cake like sponge cake it might work.
If I could figure out how to post pictures I would. We used the "cake pops" as party favors and I took a sheet cake and made it look like on of the little cake pops....my DD loved it!

Why oh Why did you post this??:sick: I WANT IT!! But there's no way I'm spending $199 on it. I make so many oreo truffles for the holidays and it would save so much time (but not $199 worth of time).

Seriously though, thanks for posting this. I'm going to watch for them to come out on the market and perhaps they may be less expensive once the company is up and running.

The babycakes cake pop maker actually looks like a nice idea to me, it's basically cake on a stick (without having to mix in the frosting like traditional cake pops).

I made regular cake pops for a family gathering, and though they were adorable, I did not like how they tasted at all. Mixed up cake and frosting molded into a pop just wasn't appetizing for me, they made cute decorations, but no one in my family would eat them. I tried the cake and frosting separately and they were both good, but mixed up together I just couldn't stomach it. If it makes a difference I've tried the oreo truffles several times and those are not a big hit around here either, must be a texture thing since both the cake pops and oreo truffles are similar in texture.

I know people love the original cake pops, but to me it's a waste if no one eats them. I think the cake pop maker is a better idea for my family because it's all cake (no frosting) that I can dip and decorate just like regular cake pops and my family is more likely to enjoy them that way. I'm going to look for the babycakes cake pop maker at my local Kohl's and see if I can find it, it'd be great cause I have a $10 giftcard to use up anyway!

Sorry:rolleyes1 I really want one too but def couldn't see spending that much. I keep thinking hmmm, what could I use to get the same results without buying one. So far I haven't come up with anything so maybe one day they will be less, much less. I'm waiting for the $19.95 price range :rotfl2:

My first thought was somehow using some Wilton flower forming trays

If you could secure these to a board or something. Then another set for the top? I'm still in the drawing stages on a cheap alternative! :teacher:

I tried mine out tonight...we like! I made the recipe for the chocolate cake that it came with and the vanilla glaze. My DS9 loves the cake doughnut holes from KK...so I figured this would be great for him. They came out light and fluffy like a piece of cake would be. I never liked the ones that were mixed with the frosting either because they were so heavy to me....I do know several people that like them, they just weren't for me.

So, anyway, my review, I LOVE IT! I will be using it to make treats for my DD11's bday party next weekend. It is so easy to use, just like a waffle iron. To me it is so worth the money because I can whip up a quick treat for the kids and it will cost next to nothing and won't heat up the whole kitchen.

So, here are my doughnut holes....

Can you use a regular cake mix?

Yes, I bought one today as well and experimented. I bought a marble cake mix and it worked fine!!! They cook so quickly. I'm trying itnout to try and make cake pops for DS's graduation open house. The problem I have is, I bought the meltable choc discs and tried to dip them, although they tasted great, I don't know how to get them to look smooth/presentable. Any suggestions?

DawnM
03-30-2011, 10:46 PM
On the Babycakes website I was reading how to make them and it mentioned adding melted butter, oil, or crisco to the melted candies if it gets too thick, it will thin the mix out and create a smoother texture.

But just know that is what I read, I have never tried them!

I haven't made the babycakes, but I have made a lot of oreo truffles! It takes some practice to get it to look nice. I find using 2 toothpicks works for me. I stick one into the uncoated ball (chilling or freezing them a little helps). Then dip into the chocolate. When coated, use the other toothpick to pry the coated ball off the original toothpick. I find setting them on a gridded cooling rack covered with waxed paper works best to allow them to dry. If a lot of chocolate drips off onto to wax paper puddling near the bottom of the ball, lift up the ball and move it to another spot of the waxed paper. Otherwise you will get a big rim of chocolate around the base that you can't get off easily.

Thanks. Probably not. My car gets 17mpg, so that trip would cost about $15 in gas just to get it, not to mention a 2 hour or more round trip. Thanks though.

I should have asked if they could get one in.....I could still do that, but I had all 3 of my BOYS with me and they hate shopping and I hate shopping with them! It takes 3 times as long for me to find anything because they somehow think the store is one giant playground! :rolleyes:

The store I went to (South Blvd.) did have the other two Babycakes machines (donuts and mini muffins) so I know they carry the brand.

Oh my WORD! I just called the Pineville Kohls and the lady was SO rude. She told me there is no way to look it up or know if they ever carry them or if they will get them in again or if any other stores have them unless *I*, the customer, can provide her with the UPC code. She then told me that they HAVE the donut maker and the cupcake maker and those should be fine for me or I can just come back to the store periodically to look for myself.

REALLY?????? SHEESH!

However, if any of you will provide me with the UPC code I guess I could call back.

Good Grief!

If it doesn't close the whole way, the front 3 don't bake in the shape of a ball....they're like little flying cake saucers

I found out when I was using mine that you have to squeeze the latch like you are unlatching then close it down then release the latch for it to catch.

Thank You!! That helped!! :thumbsup2


My thoughts on it after 1 use....Super easy to use! Very fast - each dozen takes about 4-5 minutes. They come out in perfect little balls. I've been making Oreo Truffles for ages, so I have the whole dip & decorate thing down pat!

My only problem so far, I think they're too dry. (Then again, I don't like cake) But I think I can fix that next time if I "inject" them with a squirt of icing or something.

The kids called them "amazing"

Anyone have a secret for making the dipping chocolate smooth and easy to apply? I made some cake pops yesterday......by hand.....and used semi-sweet morsels, but I could not get the chocolate thin enough. I read to use shortening, but I really do not want to add any more fat onto these pops! I do not have a double boiler....so I just melted the chocolate in the microwave. I picked up the Babycakes maker at Kohls today....looking forward to trying it out!

Did you use the recipe in the book or did you use cake mix? I did the book recipe and thought they turned out fairly moist....just wondered if box mix made a difference ....we are trying the box mix tomorrow.

I used a boxed mix. Maybe that's the problem. I definately think that little injector will make a huge difference.

But, I don't even like cake - the kids said they were great. So it could be just me.

Okay...that may be it...the recipe in the book yields a pretty thin batter...thinner than what you would get following the exact recipe for a box mix....I may play with thinning the box mix tomorrow to see how it effects the end result.

http://thebabycakesshop.com/products/cake-pop-makers/cp-12

I've got a party to go to this weekend and all my husbands co-workers are begging him to get me to make oreo truffles. I might makes these too!

So what do I do, Bake a yellow cake and use white icing and chocolate cake with chocolate icing?

If this is what she is looking for my Dmil got her's at Kmart for about $20.00. The kids loved it and you can us store bought cake mixes.WE used carrot cake with cream cheese frosting filling . Brownies with peanut butter frosting . Apple Cinnamon pops . We also used a frosting tip and made stuffed wholes.

Don't use chocolate chips. They don't melt the way they are suppose to for dipping. You need to use the flat baking chips like Wilton. Those will melt very smooth and thin. The white are the best and the colored ones you will need to add the shortening to so they will thin out.

Okay - tried my cake pop maker tonight....

I used a boxed cake mix (vanilla) and had a really hard time getting the cake pops to be balls. They all looked like mushrooms. Towards the end of the batch, I was getting some rounded ones. So it takes some time to figure out the right timing and how much batter. My biggest issue was filling the wells fast enough. I ended up with the most success with the ziplock filled with batter.

I used the candy melts from AC More for the coating. The vanilla ones were "goopier" than the chocolate. The chocolate was much easier to work with.

We did red sprinkles (some sugar sprinkles; some jimmies) to match the boys' birthday party supplies for tomorrow. They are not perfect, but they look cute enough. I hope to get a pic tomorrow before the party.

I will do round two tomorrow night before DS's school birthday party!

Oh - best idea ever? Dip the vanilla cake in peanut butter (heated and thinned with a little oil) and then in the chocolate. For any of you in the Philadelphia area - just like a Tastycake KandyKake! Sooooooo good!

Is Kohl's the only bm retailer that sells them? I went to my local Kohls this weekend. All they had left was the display model. Clerk said that they usually don't sell the display model. She checked with the store manager and he said that I could buy it but there is no box etc. and there would be no discount. I passed on it, figuring I could find it somewhere else. I checked my local K mart and they don't have them. I see them online, but for $42.00. Don't need it that bad. Guess I will wait until Kohls restocks.

Has anyone ever frozen the pops before putting the stick in? I'm thinking if I need to make 50 pops, they will fit better in my freezer just as the balls, without the stick, then when I take them out to defrost I can just dip them in chocolate the day before the party. Any advice would be great, I've never made them before and will be trying my first batch tonight. :)

Has anyone tried this instead of the actual cake ball baking gizmo: http://images.barnesandnoble.com/images/77290000/77291238.JPG

The author has a blog (http://www.bakerella.com/category/pops-bites/cake-balls/) and has been featured on the Disney Family website, and since I couldn't justify buying a single use kitchen appliance with my counter space :lmao: I'd try them out.

:worship::faint: They ended up being the best things ever, and really simple, just a little time consuming because of the steps involved. I've been doing cake balls (haven't gotten brave enough to try pops yet, but everyone who's tried them wants more. I've been asked to make them for our Relay for Life fundraiser and a friend's birthday party. The best so far was what I call death by chocolate (devil's food cake with milk chocolate icing, covered with melted milk chocolate chips and sprinkled with chocolate jimmies).

Might be an alternative if you can't find or don't want a cake ball/ doughnut hole cooker...

I love bakerellas blog- although I am not a huge fan of the texture of the balls- the frosting mixed with cake ones. It's a frosting thing I think. That's why I am anxious to find the maker! Oh the fun I could have! I did make lego head ones off of Bakerellas site and the kids loved them. I just didn't care for the cake.

Yes, but the wedding was beautiful. It was one of my best friend's daughter's wedding.

It really bothered me though that any of us would be old enough to have a child getting married! My kids are much younger than hers. She got married at 19 and had her first child at 20 or 21.

I haven't made the cake pops yet, but I did make donut holes with the recipe in the book. I used glaze on top. The kids LOVED them!

I only dipped the actual balls once. But I did dip the sticks in chocolate before I stuck them in the balls. This helped to "seal" the sticks in. Then I stuck them in the freezer for 30 minutes to harden and then dipped the whole ball into the melted chocolate. If you want to decorate the cake pops you have to do it immediately before the chocolate hardens.

I think my problem was that I stuck the stick in the chocolate and then put that in the freezer. Then I took it out and put on the cake pops.

Next time I will try it where I put the sticks in chocolate and then put on the cake pop and then stick the whole thing in the freezer. Although, that means I have to clear out the huge bag of cherries that need to be processed from our cherry trees that I hurried up and stuck in the "beer fridge" freezer before we left for vacation last summer in order to make room for my cake pop foam thing.

P.S. Decorating sugars (sprinkles) do NOT work well. It makes a big gloppy mess if you try to roll the wet chocolate in the sugars. You need something more like jimmies or crushed nuts.

P.P.S. I had to add a little oil to the chocolate melts in order to make it thin enough to coat properly. You can kind of see my first attempt before adding the oil in my picture above. Its the one pop in the back where the chocolate looks all lumpy. I used Wilton chocolate melts.

You donít have to pay shipping! I had read about the kiosk here on the board so I asked and they said sure and pointed me that way. It I is just like ordering online and I was able to use my code and I actually googled the 30% off code on my phone and used it. that code ended yesterday though.
I would have gladly gotten it at the store, but after weeks of looking I was glad to just get it. well not yet, it did ship though.

So if your store doesnít have it order it on the kiosk to save shipping.

I'm thinking of making these for my oldest dd's sweet 16 and wondered something. We're doing a couple of chocolate fountains.....do you think the cake balls would be okay on a stick not dipped in chocolate until the guest do it? I'm going to have white chocolate and milk chocolate, but hated to predip the cakes if it would be easier/tastier to have the guest dip their own. Having never made cake pops before I wondered if the cake would stay on the stick long enough for that to happen though....as I notice many of you freeze them a bit before dipping them and then when they thaw I figured the chocolate must be holding them together.

We have tasted several cake pops at parties and such. They are extremely popular right now. We picked some up at a local restaurant that carried them as a dessert. They were absolutely the best tasting cake pops we have ever tried. The vendor was Pops By Ivy that supplies them with it. They have a website and even discovered she makes Mickey and Minnie and Nightmare Before Christmas ones!

Here is her website

She also has a facebook book page that she updates regularly with new creations. Simply amazing. I don't think they ship so you need to be local but they are absolutely incredible. We tried making some and gave up, tough work!

Yeah! I finally found a cake pop maker at Kohls this week. I went in for something else and wow right at that door display it was there and it was purple. (DD's the baker favorite color).

It wasn't on sale but got to love the 30% off postcard I got. So after waiting 6 months she finally got one! (MIL got her the cupcake maker by accident for her birthday in Jan and she has been holding on to the creidt since then.):goodvibes

That's great! :woohoo: I still haven't seen them in Kohl's! Luckily I stalked them a few months ago and got one, but I'm still looking for my little sister-in-law.

Our Kohls' has the cakepop maker, the cupcake maker, and I think a donut maker. When they are on sale, they are a really decent price. I think next time I have a coupon and they are on sale I will pick me up one.

FYI - Walmart has them online (clearance) for $15.00. Not sure how much shipping adds....
