Hi I am going to attempt to make cake pops later today. I bought the machine and my D sent a book of recipes from NY so I am all set! But I'm nervous and I wondered if anyone has any tips.

I would love to offer you some words of wisdom babs but I haven't the faintest clue what cake pops are shock

Seen them in Lakeland catalogue, well the equipment for making them, and they look great but oh so fiddly smile

This will help Jane:

I'm not even going to try as I eat too much cake anyway and need no further encouragement but good luck Babs - let us know how you get on

Babs I bought a machine a couple of months ago but so far I've not got around to doing anything with it. I also have a recipe book which involves making the pops with cooked cake mixture and flavoured frosting. I think they are really cute and would be great for childrens parties.

I will look forward to hearing how you get on with yours, pics too please.

Babs, it can't be too difficult as my 11 yr old dgd made some a while ago.
Go for it!

Thank you yoga
However I think the perceived hassle/benefit ratio (aka the b**geration factor) will probably preclude me from extending my culinary expertise in this direction grin
But good luck with them Babs

Tiny cake on a stick - one mouthful and it is gone! Blink and you miss it! Rather you than me - I take my hat off to you!!

Thanks for your encouragement!

Well I finally made the cake pops this afternoon all I can say is I hope they look better when they are decoratedhmm Not exactly round either!

OOPS hmm no hope for me then Babs

Well they are decorated and I have to say I am pleased with the end result,a bit basic but not bad for a first attempt. They are wrapped ready for the Church fete tomorrow. I think I have a new hobbysmile photo on my profile.
