My kids have been begging me to buy them Bake Pops for months now so we were all excited when I was selected to do a product review on them. Bake Pops use regular cake mix which I can always get for FREE/cheap with coupons so I like that. The directions say that you can add pudding mix, an extra egg, milk instead of water, and some other changes but these are all optional. I did follow all the directions to make our Red Velvet Cake Bake Pops and they came out dense but delicious.
It was really easy to make the Bake Pops. I followed the directions to make regular cake batter. Then I sprayed the wells of the Bake Pops tray with non-stick cooking spray and filled up each well with cake batter. I put the top tray on, put the rubber clamps on the side, sprayed the top of the tray, and put it in the oven. In 20 minutes they were ready. My children were amazed when the Bake Pops came out of the oven and the cake has risen out a little through the tops of the trays. Once they cooled a little I was able to take the excess cake off of the top tray. They were like little dome shaped cookies and because they were thin, they were a little crispy and delicious. For some of the Bake Pop decorations we created we used them as hats so it worked out well.
See the “cookie” hat? 🙂
Now for the fun part. I melted chocolate topping in different flavors and let the kids have fun making their own creations. First we dipped the sticks in chocolate, put them in the cake, and let them harden in the freezer for a few minutes. This helped keep the sticks in the cake.
I am not sure who had more fun, the kids, me, or the biggest kid of all, my husband! I will say that I have a whole new respect for Buddy, The Cake Boss. It isn’t easy decorating with icing! But I am sure with a little practice I’d get better at it. My one big tip would be to get a styrofoam block to put the Bake Pop in while they dry. Once we each made a creation we were scrambling to find a place to put them to free up our hands.
I think all of our creations came out great even if the icing we used was a little runny. No one seemed to care as they were eating their yummy works of art! My family gives Bake Pops 2 thumbs up!
