What It Is
Cake pops are super popular in the food world now and no one knows them better than New York Times bestselling cookbook author Bakerella. SRM Entertainment and Bakerella have teamed up to help kids make their own cake pops at home. The Cake Pops by Bakerella Ultimate Cake Pops Set comes with a Cake Pops Crumbler, a Cake Pops Mixing Bowl, a Cake Pops Tray, a Cake Pops Press, Cake Pops Molds, a Cake Pops Dipping Bowl, Cake Pops Sticks, and a Cake Pops Stand. You will need 1/3 of a nine-by-13-inch cake, completely cooled. (Either make your own or buy one, which is what we did.) You will also need 1/3 cup of frosting, a large spoon, one 12-16 ounce bag of candy coating, and sprinkles. These extras are not included with the kit.
Follow the instructions to crumble the cake into a bowl, add frosting, and mix the cake and frosting together until thoroughly combined. Divide the mixture into balls and place them on the Cake Pops Tray. Place the tray in the freezer for 15 minutes. Then trim excess cake mixture by using the Cake Pops Press and one of the Cake Pops Mold shapes. Return the cake pop balls to the freezer for another 15 minutes. Then transfer to the fridge. Melt the candy coating in the Cake Pops Dipping Bowl. Insert sticks into the cake pop, and dip the cake pop straight down into the melted coating. Decorate with sprinkles. Place the cake pops in the stand and let them dry for 10 minutes. Then eat!
Why It’s Fun
This is an easy way for kids to make, decorate, and eat their very own cake pops. The instructions are easy to follow, and, if you purchase a pre-made cake, there is no baking involved. The cake pops we made looked great and, best of all, tasted great.
Who It’s For
The Ultimate Cake Pops Set is for ages 5 and up. If you're baking your own cake, adult supervision is required.
What To Be Aware Of
The whole process of making our cake pops with a cake that we bought at a bakery took us about 45 minutes. If you make your own cake, you'll need to add the prep and baking time for that.
If you make cake pops in a shape other than a circle, be careful when placing them in the freezer tray. The tray doesn't hold the other shapes very well.
