Donut Holes with Babycakes Cake Pop Maker!

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??

    Wow, the idea of making cake pops that I didn&#39;t face to mold sounds wonderful. I am a goal chocoholic so I would be making chocolate cake balls. With July soon upon us I would decorate them with red, white and blue.

    OMG they look so good, I would love to have a go at making some and also the cake pops, I have seen so many different cake pops online but I am scared to have a go!

    O.M.G. Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my keyboard! Those look amazing, but even more amazing: I had no idea there was a cake pop maker- wow! Looks like it saves a LOT of time and effort. Thanks for the post :-)

    These look GREAT I love donuts. I haven&#39;t been a fan of the cake ball craze because I don&#39;t like the way they taste mixed with all the frosting. But these look terrific! I wish I would be contacted to try the cake ball maker out. What a great idea. It reminds me of a Japanese treat we used to have in Japan. Fun memories. ANYWAY, thanks for linking up to Topsy Turvy Tuesday&#39;s!

    These look delicious! I know I am a litte late on this but just found your blog and love it. I was super excited to see that there is a cake pop maker…(how did I miss this?) I love the look of cake pops but making them with crumpling cake and mixing it with frosting just makes me nauseous. I love the idea of being able to have actual baked cake inside! Super excited and will have to add this

    I was very skeptical about this machine. I was just going to buy the two piece pan set, I thought it would make more at once saving me time. I am hosting a baby shower for my sister-in-law, I mentioned to my mother-in-law I was thinking about cake pops, that night she ran online and ordered herself a machine. She gave it to me to use, but I honestly didn&#39;t even plan on using it, the co-host

    I aall ways wanted one, and with being out of a job I just never got one, but I just want to a yard sale and got one for $5.00. My granddaughter and I made cake pops the other day, Just didn’t have enough holes to put them in for i found a box and put holds in to hold them up. Every one loved them, Now i want to make donuts, These really look great, Where did you get your recipe for them and the glaze recipe? thanks
