The Book People left some stuff at school today, including a little kit for popcakes. It was only £6, so I'm going to get it I think. It was a silcone top and bottom for make the cakes and the top part had stick holes in it, so after you've coated them, you can use it as a holder.
Might be a classic white elephant gadget, but for £6, it's worth a try.
*Arithmeticulous how do you find the Lakeland machine? I've previously made cakepops from scratch but have just borrowed a cake pop maker to make some for my DD's birthday later this week. Does it work on any cake mixture as i'm using a vegan recipe?
Have heard lots of bad things about candy melts not melting enough so i'll be using plain chocolate with a bit of oil added. That gave me the right consistancy last time.
Well, I made them. Wasn't bad for a first attempt. Do you have to use the candy melts or is there anything else on the market? It just didn't melt enough to coat the balls as easily as I though it would.
don't bother with the lakeland machine. whip up a cake n butter icing. crumble cake add small amount of icing then roll to desired shape. pop in freezer for 30mins then decorate snowmen are easy to make. so are xmas pudding
I am about to become obsessed with cake pops! Why fgs? Haven't I done enough princess castle cakes, car cakes, horse cakes, big cakes and cup cakes? Haven't I said for over two years, 'I've retired from making cakes for other people'? Don't I deserve to stop making bloody cakes??
Have any of you taken the plunge into pop cakes yet? They just look so easy and simple and pretty and lovely.
Aaarghh! I live 10mins from a shop that will provide me with all the things I need and it's bloody Christmas, so I just know I'm going to end up making them for presents!
Anyone got the number for the cake persons alternative to AA?
