One shopper who said the device makes “perfect cake pops,” added, “this mini cake pop maker is a life saver!”
She continued, “I used to make cake pops the traditional way with crumbled cake and frosting, then followed by rolling them into balls but that whole process took far too much time so I decided to invest in this machine. With this machine, I don't have to worry about the consistency of the cake pop and the frosting.”

Another added, “Buy this!.” She continued, “SO glad I bought this versus making cake pops by hand. I was able to make over 100 cake pops in under 2.5 hours (non decorated of course).”
That shopper also advised those who buy the cake popper to use the recipes in the booklet, and continued, “There's less water and the consistency is PERFECT!” Those recipes include vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, and more.

The cake pop maker has nonstick baking plates, so bakers can spray it with oil, pour the batter, close the lid, bake for a few minutes, and it will create perfect round cake balls. You can pop them out easily, and wipe the plates down to clean it.
Although the baking tool is used for cake pops, there are some Amazon shoppers who have found other uses for it, including pizza and brownie bites, and donut holes.

"I love this thing,” one shopper wrote. “So far I have made pizza balls, bacon balls, taco balls, cinnamon rolls, cake, muffins, pancake bites, corn dog bites, biscuits, cornbread, and zucchini bread. I even heat up leftovers like mac and cheese for mac and cheese balls, and now food doesn't go to waste because my kids actually like the leftovers."
Sounds like a worthy investment to us.
