This is an awesome how-to book - lots of pictures (YAY) and it contains everything you need to know to make the perfect cake pops! Before reading this book- I was somewhat intimidated at the prospect of making cake pops, even though I bake often. Cake balls are kind of tricky and then adding the stick element- just seemed a bit complicated- well I am happy to report- I am now a cake pop convert. SUPER cute and SO popular. Everyone loves how cute the cake poss are. So many good ideas in the book. I cant wait to try them all. Detailed instruction and pictures make them easy to make, the end product will look amazing! The book also includes flavor combo's for tons of different flavor choices (not just your standard choco & vanilla!) Really enjoy the book, love the pics!

Molly Bakes, if you haven't heard of her yet, is a London cake artist who specializes in bespoke cakes made with wonderful ingredients and wonderful designs. If you're lucky enough to live in that area, she even teaches classes every so often.

It's a full color, step by step paper book that explains the tools and methods you'll need to make cake pops and has instructions for lots of decorated pops.

The first part of the book is the introduction and the equipment you'll need as well as a brief overview of the method used to make cake pops. The list of tools is very complete. She also includes a conversion table for measurements.

Then the cake recipes! The recipes have some metric measurements with the US volume equivalents in parentheses. Since Molly specializes in bespoke cakes using very good ingredients and made from scratch, the recipes are just wonderful. She suggests frosting pairings for making the cake balls for the pops and includes recipes for the frosting. A lemon cake with yogurt for extra moistness and tartness, a toffee frosting made with dulce de leche for flavor, more traditional vanilla and chocolate cakes and frostings.

She follows that with photographed instructions for making the cake balls and putting the sticks in them as well as how to melt the candy coating for the cake pops.

If you just wanted to make simple and very good cake pops, you could add some sprinkles or crushed nuts and be done there. But then she has a bunch of designs as well. This is the part that made my daughter very excited.

Sweethearts, Tricolor and Marbled pops all start with a basic round pop and use simple decorating techniques. Then you get into the shaped pops.

Cake on a stick is now a trendy epidemic. You see them everywhere, from Starbucks to upscale bakeries. Perhaps this reflects our desire for continued indulgence that won't break the bank or our waistlines. Regardless the reasoning, "Crazy for Cake Pops" may be just the book to get you started making your own.

If you have no idea how to begin I recommend starting here. My curiosity prompted a few purchases to see if I could figure out how they were made. You'll find some are made using the methods described in this book. Other pops come together in a more demanding method: spare time and personal skill will determine which is best for you.

This cookbook is also a treasure trove of creative ideas on what to do with your cake pop potential. Perhaps you are confident in your skills as a home baker but need some encouragement to branch out and be creative. No problem. Molly Bakes offers great instruction and the photographs done by Noel Murphy are truly inspiring. Seeing all the potential, I realized if I had small children at home and needed birthday ideas, this book provided years of options.

Some of the ideas are nice for adults as well. One of my personal favorites is the Mustache Pop on page 67. Lots of appeal results from combining them with bright red lip pops. Overall you'll find gorgeous illustrations and directions that are accessible to even beginning bakers. I have to admit, turning cakes into crumbs was an odd kind of fun. Once you've mastered these techniques, you can begin to branch out into your own combinations of flavor and excitement. Those beyond the beginning stages may actually want to jump right to that level and use "Crazy for Cake Pops" as your inspirational starting point for your own cake pop adventures.

Enjoy!
Heidi

In Crazy for Cake Pops, Molly Bakes makes creating cake pops easy and accessible. She confesses at the start of the book that she's only been baking for two years, but what a productive two years it has been! She started out with cupcakes and moved on to cake pops and has progressed from amateur baker to professional in a short time. In Crazy for Cake Popsthere are color photos and complete instructions that explain each step, so making the cake pops is very simple to accomplish.

She outlines a simple ten step process that every one of the cake pops in Crazy for Cake Pops follows, starting with baking a cake and ending with eating them. Extra techniques are outlined in the back of Crazy for Cake Pops, including ideas like working with fondant by hand or with intricate molds. Molly likes to match her cake and frosting to really bring out the flavors. She offers several cake and frosting recipes, from the classic chocolate and vanilla to the less common (but yummy sounding!) peanut butter or toffee flavors.

Crazy for Cake Pops shares a wide range of suggestions for cake pops for many different occasions. They are teddy bears, clowns, sushi, sheep, slices of cake, and gorgeous wedding rose pops. My favorite were the adorable, stick-less Chrimas Puddings cake pops -- just the perfect size to pop in your mouth! Even if you are a beginner, Crazy for Cake Pops will walk you right through the process to make cake pops that your friends and family will love.
