Cake Baking With Less Calories

We all love cake, and baking one can be a lot of fun, especially when you do this with your kids. What's even more fun is the art of decoration your cake with all the frosting, sprinkles, chocolate bits, candies and, everything else you can think of.

But when it comes to eating the cake itself, we take a little bit of caution. That's because every slice of cake we consume is packed with lots of sugary and fatty substance that adds up into calories, which in turn adds up into pounds of fat.

That's why most people prefer cake pops, the round, small-size cake-on-a-stick that you get at most bakeries. These cakes are just the right size of cake serving, but they can be quite expensive, especially when you're entertaining and need to buy enough for your guests.

But, no worries, Bake Pop Baking Pan is just what you need to make your own cake pops right in the comfort of your home and ensure that everyone is getting just the right size of their favorite desert. Everyone get to enjoy that one serving of the cake with no worries about the calorie intake.

What's A Bake Pop Baking Pan?

Bake Pop Baking Pan is a baking pan that has the look and design of a muffin pan, but with a dome-shaped bottom. It's a baking pan that allows you to bake your cake in small, round bite-sizes that's just a little bigger that a donut-hole, more like what you'll see at most bakery.

It comes with a lid pan, a second pan, but unlike the first, with holes at the top of the round domes. This is designed to be the lid that goes on securely on top of the bottom cake pan. The hole on the domes allows excess cake batter to spill out during baking.

Baking with the Cake-Pop Pan gives the perfect serving size of cake for those who are health conscious. So, your health conscious friends and family can enjoy a bite of their favorite desert without all the guilt.

Using the Bake Pop Baking Pan, you can bake your cake in small round shapes and still have lots of fun with decorating with all the sprinkles, chocolate melts, nuts, and candies as you would with any other cake. The Bake Pop Baking Pan usually comes with its own decorating guides, wraps, ties, sqeeze bottle (for decorating), and pop sticks (that can be inserted into the individual cake pops for a popsicle look) for decorating.

Cake Pops The Old Fashioned Way - Not A Healthy Option

Most people make cake pop the old fashion way by first baking the cake in a rectangular or round sheet. Then once the cake has cooled down, it is then crumbled up, mixed with lots of cake frosting, and then molded into small round shapes by hand. Cake is then dipped into more frosting, chocolate melts and decorated with sprinkles and other sweet stuff.

The old-fashioned method may give the same look of a cake baked with bake pop pan, but the hidden truth is the excess amount of sugar and fat that goes into the preparation. Note, that when you use the Bake Pop Pan, there's no need for the 16-ounce ready-made frosting, which is usually added to the cake crumbs to make it easy to mold it by hand.

Let's consider a serving of the frosting normally used in the old-fashioned cake pops. 2 tablespoons of the frosting is considered a serving. That equals to 140 calories, including 45 calories from fat. With about 13 (thirteen) servings in each 16-ounce container, you're looking at about 1820 extra calories added to your old-fashioned Bake Pops. That, is not a very healthy option. Not only that, this method takes longer preparation time.

Bake-Pop-Pan Bake Pops - The Healthier Choice

Using Bake Pop Pan to make your cake pops is definitely the healthier choice.

  • You get smaller uniform, and consistent round shape cakes that's just the right amount of cake serving size you need for desert.
  • You use less amount of sugary and fatty ingredients than when you make your cake pop the old-fashion way. No need for a 16 ounce container of ready-made frosting here.
  • You spend less time in preparation and decorating as you don't have to do any hand molding. You then have more time to spend on other party dishes or spend with family.
  • You get the same wholesome goodness as with any cake baked the old-fashion way.

Bake Pop Pan can be used for all your cake pop baking for special occasions, such as, birthdays, anniversaries, and weddings. Use it for when you need to get those eye-popping reactions from your guests.

      I enjoyed reading your Hub on making cake pops in the special pan. I love these little "cakes on a stick". My grandkids love to decorate them.

      Great idea for kids and adults. Easier to handle and can be eaten on the go, not to mention everyone gets an "end piece". Voted up.
