Babycakes Cake Pop Maker Review: Make Cake Pops Fast

Updated on December 9, 2011

As a home baker, I love making desserts that put a smile on the face of friends and family. One treat that never fails is a simple cake pop. Making your own cake pops is simple, but it does take some effort. You must bake a cake, let it cool, and break it into fine pieces before mixing with frosting. Not everyone has enough free time to make the cake pops, which is why I was so excited to see the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker. This little device lets you make cake pops fast with little work on your part.

How the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker Works

The Babycakes Cake Pop Maker looks like a simple waffle iron from the outside, with a pale blue/lavender design. The inside has a nonstick coating and 12 holes for cake pops. The round design also appears on the top part of the electric cake pop maker. You mix your favorite cake mix or cake recipe and pour inside the small holes. The cakes bake and expand, encountering the top, which forces the cake into the round ball shape.

What is Included

Not only do you get the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker, but also a specialized fork that lets you quickly pull each piece from the inside. The set also comes with a tray that holds 12 cake pops while they cool or you decorate the outside and sticks for displaying the finished cake pops for a party or entertaining.

The Downside

The one thing I didn’t like about the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker is that it uses cake mix only for the cake pops. A few of the recipes I tried came out a little dry and crumbly. Moister cake mixes, including packaged cake mixes with pudding, work best. Though it comes with treat sticks, I wasn’t crazy about them. They work for one serving, but if you need to make a large batch, you will need extra sticks. A straw or bamboo skewer works just as well, if not better than the ones included.

Why I Like It

I liked using the electric cake pop maker because it makes a quick batch of treats for a mid-week snack. You can make a regular cake recipe, use half and save the rest for later. The non-stick coating was also great because it lets the finished cake balls slide out easily from the pan. While it will not replace my regular cake pops recipe, I can see using the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker for smaller batches many times in the future.
