You can use peanut butter, cream cheese.....just about anything sticky to bind the cake. This way you can adjust the sweetness of the filling. If you use pure peanut butter.....your pop may come out saltier than you would like, so test it out first. (I kind of liked mine a little saltier, my cake pop ended up tasting like reese's pieces). Or do half peanut butter, half frosting or whatever. My next idea is make chocolate ganache and use that as a binder. just melt chocolate chips, cream (or milk) and butter, stir until smooth and add to crumbled cake. (I detest store bought frosting).
I made two cakes, one boxed strawberry and one boxed chocolate. The strawberry cake was so moist that when I put only 1/2 cup of frosting it was extremely mushy and hard to place on a stick, even when chilled. I didn't have any extra cake on hand so I crumbled up some bread and added it to the mix to dry it up, worked great.
The chocolate cake however, was a tad dryer and it came out perfect. So the point is to start with just a little frosting. Good luck and have fun! After I made the cake pops I couldn't stand even to look at anything sweet. They tasted better the next day.
This is the 2nd copy of this book that I've purchased. The 1st one is mine. This copy is for my friend's daughter. She doesn't need too much to get started in her new married life but doesn't splurge much for herself. She got a full "kit" to help her start making cake pops. I tried to get her things that I use and may be harder for her to find. This book, a Wilton Chocolate Pro Electric Melting Pot,Gourmet Food Writer Edible Color Markers (10 color set) by AmeriColor, 2 chocolate molds to make the cupcake bites on pg 24, Wilton Mini Romantic Metal Cookie Cutter Set so she could make the cupcake pops on pg 18 and spring pops on pg 50 in the book, pop sticks and 1/2 dozen assorted sprinkles. Everything to get her started except cake mix, frosting and chocolate candy for coating the pops, because those are easy for her to get herself. She has many friends that have young kids like she has and this is something I know she would enjoy but may not have purchased all for herself.
I loved this book because it is very detailed. I loved the step by step pictures in the front and the actual photograph of every pop. Not only are there cake pops for almost every occasion - but this book just screams be creative! Anything is possible. I also love that the book lies flat no pages flipping all over when you are trying to copy a design.
Someone else wrote a review about this book making a great gift - or a part of a gift basket-- I couldn't agree more - make a gift basket - with the sticks, candy melts, a cake mix, frosting, sprinkles, the cutters, some ribbon - everything you need - what a cool gift for a wedding, a baker, or - this would be great at the Christmas holiday raffles! I'm doing that - I'll be a hit -- I'll give make a batch of Cake Pops to put in front of the basket and if you buy a ticket - you get a pop! (Sorry this is unrelated to the review - but such a great idea - I had to talk about it).
I'm looking forward to Cake Pops, The Sequel. Also a note, Bakerella is featured in the Betty Crocker Fall Baking magazine as well -- it's Bakerella fever!
Unfortunately the book was not able to include the hello kitty design, which is difficult to make, and would have added to the value of the book.
The book remains a good resource for cake pop makers and easier to use than constantly referring to the web site. Go bakerella!
Best cake pop design (not by bakerella) is the rose bud pop [...]
