I have been eyeing the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker for quite some time. But to be honest, I wasn't so sure about it. I know cake pops are so popular...but I personally have never made them because, well, they seemed like a lot of work, and I like to keep things SIMPLE!
So when I saw the Cake Pop Maker, I was intrigued. I wondered if it really was easy to make cake pops with this. I also was so curious about how it worked, if it worked, and what they tasted like! My first thought when I saw the product was "You could make donut holes with this!!" Yum!
When Select Brands offered to send me a Cake Pop Maker to try out, I jumped at the opportunity! Literally, I was jumping and dancing...I am so glad no one could see me!
So I thought my first project I should make with this should be donut holes! And I have to admit, I was astounded!
I took Father's Day as an opportunity to give these a whirl! My husband loves donut holes so I wanted to surprise him with some yummy donut holes for Father's Day breakfast!
I was slightly worried since I had never used this product before and since I had never made donuts before! Thankfully my husband is used to me experimenting! But I was sure hoping that this product was as easy to use as it seemed to be!
So I unpacked my Cake Pop Maker and found a great package inside! In the box came the cute purple cake pop maker, an easy to understand instruction booklet, pop sticks, a cake pop cooling stand and a non-scratch fork to help get the cake pops out of the maker!
I followed this donut recipe on the Babycake website. But at this point I still wondered if they would look pretty and round like the photos. I worried about my ability to create an end-result that looked and tasted good!
I was AMAZED! Look at how beautiful these look!! Seriously! I can't believe how perfectly round they turned out! These are just incredible looking!!
The recipe was simple to follow and the cake pop maker was a breeze to use! And it took mere minutes to bake 12 donut holes!!
I love love love my Cake Pop Maker!!
The first batch I took immediately out of the cake pop maker and coated them in powdered sugar! Yum!
I also decided to make a batch of chocolate donut holes. Mmmm...yum!
I coated the rest of my donuts in a simple glaze I made with powdered sugar, milk and vanilla! These tasted incredible!
I was so amazed at how SIMPLE these were to make! In minutes I had enough donut holes to feed a small army and they were delish! The recipe was simple to follow and the result was an amazing donut that tasted great! They were lighter then a "cake" baked-type of donut but not quite like a fried donut...almost like a mix of the two. They were yummy!
But most important, the Cake Pop Maker was so simple to use!! It functions in a similar manner to a waffle iron but makes Cake Pops and Donut Holes! How awesome is that?!
It is easy to use, simple to clean, and makes perfect round balls of deliciousness in about 3 minutes!
That's exactly what these are: Perfect Round Balls of Deliciousness!
Can you tell how much I LOVE my new Cake Pop Maker?!? It is my new favorite kitchen gadget! I love love love it!
Tomorrow I will be experimenting with making Cake Pops with my Cake Pop Maker, and Thursday I am so lucky to be able to give one of my lucky readers their own Cake Pop Maker!! Seriously!!
So, I want to know, what is the first thing you would make if you won this Cake Pop maker??
