5.0 out of 5 stars I have two words for this book, LOVE IT, September 1, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats (Hardcover-spiral)
This has got to be the best little treat book out ever!! These cute little pops would be perfect to make for a child as well as adults. The recipe is so easy. If you don't own this book you are missing out. I plan on making these with my granddaughter. A batch of these would be perfect to give as a gift. I cannot say enough about this book. Thanks so much for writing it. Photo of every pop included.
Just an Update- We are having so much fun making these. My granddaughter is only 5 years old and loves making these as much as grandma does. We have made so many different ones already. One of the suppliers we used for the sprinkles and hearts and many of the other decorations was from Millcreekcountrystore.com. They are a great supplier, they even sell samples so you don't need to buy so much and most of the samples are $1.00 and under. Just an FYI the Wilton food markers do not work well on these pops, use the Americolor ones like it is stated in the supply list in the book. And by the way Bakerella.com Website is so full of more ideas. Thanks Bakerella!! Hope this helps.
Just have to add this. If you are making any of the cake pops that are coated with white chocolate/coating wafers than I strongly suggest using the Merckens Super White coating wafers they come out sooo much better than if you were to use just the white ones. The Super white is so much brighter. When I used the super white on the chick cake pops they came out to a brighter white. I do not think you can get any whiter than this.
Also if you don't feel like making cake balls, try the oreo cookie truffle balls all you have to do is put 1pkg of oreos in a food processor and chop up until you have fine crumbs and then add 1 8oz. pkg cream cheese and mix together. My cousin used peanut butter cookies instead and everyone loved them. There are so many combinations you could do. What about thin mint Girl Scout cookies even? Use your imagination and have fun!

Thanks for the helpful info,i took it all down,this might be a great idea to start a little buisness with! Im going to seriously take a look into it.About how much money would you say you are having to invest into each pop including sticks and plastic covers,cake,icing,sprinkles etc?

Michelle

Hi Michelle, I am not quite sure how much money I have invested. I just know its a lot of fun. I want to give you another tip, do not buy too many candy melts ahead of time unless you plan on using them within a couple of months. I found out they can go bad, they do not melt well at all.

This is an Awesome looking book with some great looking receipts. I'm going to definitely buy it to use with these Cake Pops by Aunti Em's Kitchen: Cake Pop Maker with Cake Pop Kit Sticks Included which are easy to use. My kids love these cake pops and that make great snacks. This book looks like it will have a LOT of good ideas for us!
