This was my very first attempt at making cake pops, but I was up to the challenge. I bought a Babycakes Cake Pop Maker. It makes 12 little pops every 4 – 6 minutes, depending on the recipe. I actually bought another one to make them twice as fast! My granddaughter chose the flavors…”chocolate, vanilla, pink (strawberry) and yellow (lemon)”. It took about 10 hours to prepare the batters, bake, cool, dip in candy melts and cool again to make over 180 cake pops.
The “castle”, candle holder and the large, flat display were made from Styrofoam. I got it from our local appliance store…FOR FREE!! I cut the pieces (outdoors, it was very messy!), covered them with white plastic tablecloth and decorated with ribbon. The greatest challenge was transporting the “cakes” to the party. The weather was very hot and humid. I had to run the van with the air conditioning on. It’s a good thing that we didn’t have far to go! At least the room was nice and cool!
The look on my granddaughter’s face was priceless, she loved it! The cake pops were very tasty! They were enjoyed by young and old!! Thank you, Stella
