Looking for inspiration? Top Bananas! the Mumsnet cookbook is packed with great recipes your family will love.
this one? I'm not a fan of cake pops but I get asked to make them loads. they take ages to make and I think they are too sickly sweet. the reviews are amazing but I've never used a kitchen gadget that actually worked before. it's only £20 but I don't want to buy another bit of crap just to stick it in the cupboard and never use it again.
Oh I want one now!
I have one, it is great. I made chocolate cake pops for my dd's party and everyone (grandparents included) loved them. I got the sticks from them from eBay or amazon - can't remember which but they were cheaper than Lakeland. Be warned : if you value your thighs do NOT try the mini doughnut recipes and definitely do NOT roll them in a bowl of cinnamon sugar when you get them out. They're lush revolting.
I think I neeeeed one!
I love it gwenAlmost. Get one. Its fab.
Ooh so looking forward to getting one
I haven't tried this before but hopefully this is a picture of the ones I made here
It's my eldest's 18th birthday in a couple of weeks. I think I need to make some red and black cake pops for her party. Need. Not want.
They are FAB, Grapes!
Cinnamon sugar! <Drooling>They are all cooked now. Just cooling then will be trying to get them all on sticks.
X-post. Grapes they are beautiful!
I need one now too!!!!!!Does it come with a recipe? A
Yes trixy it does. Vanilla, choc, lemon and a few others. My only slight issue with it would be that the top of the ball is a bit paler than the bottom. They were so easy to turn I just flipped them over for the last minute.
Right. I'm picking up my machine tomorrow and I've just ordered cellophane bags, candy melts, edible glitter and sticks from Amazon. I cannot wait!I was trying to keep it a secret from the birthday girl but she's sneaker than a sneaky thing and came in the room < snooty >
Have tried to put some pics on profile.
Oh they look fantastic! Well done. That will bee mee!(I especially like the dog-shaped one )
They look delish mmmm
Wow, you sneaks. You're not supposed to be better at decorating them than me
i1242.photobucket.com/albums/gg528/AlmostAHipster/ab64b83b.jpgI hope this works as I'm on an iPad which can be a bit tricky . Anyway - many thanks, guys - we've done a trial run today and have had a lovely time!
Lovely! Im thinking of trying the choc orange ones next and taking them into work grin
You should try a new recipe every day and poke 'em in her pigeonhole!
I put a couple of undecorated chocolate balls in dd1's first ever lunchbox today (she's 4 and practising for big school). She was delighted
But how do you fill it up with cake mixture?
Lynette- you just spoon it in. Close the lid and let them cook.
Oh, of course they rise! Duh!
Signing in / marking my place. Not as pretty as others, but these were my first attempt from my machine after the trial runs of cakes and doughnuts which the DC and I scoffed I am due to do more for the village fete next weekend. I had meant them to be made and frozen on sticks by now for last minute icing [panic].Uniced cake balls for packed lunches is a genius idea - you could make a batch and freeze them and then just chuck a couple into a lunchbox each morning.
