I just saw a commercial for Bake Pops as seen on tv. Bake Pops are basically the same exact thing as the bride and groom brownie pops that I had recommended a few years ago and still love. The difference between the Bake Pops as seen on tv cake lollipops maker and the brownie pops are that you get to make your own. They are basically the same things you see at starbucks but now you can create your own flavors, toppings and designs. Here are a few of my favorite ideas when creating Bake Pops as seen on tv cake lollipop pans.
Wedding Pops – I would use these for bridal showers, grooms parties, in the dressing room for the bride and groom. What I would do is make the bake pops in the bakepop pan and then take the circular cake ball and roll it through a whipped cream icing. (The reason I am not using buttercream is that it is their wedding day and I don’t want them to feel weighted down. Whipped cream icing is light and easy to eat). Then I would take a block of white chocolate and a block of dark chocolate and then use a vege or potatoe peeler to make chocolate curls and shavings. Then take the cake ball and place the shavings and curls all over them and you have gorgeous black and white cake pops and bake pops for your wedding.
Adult Bake Pops – This is a fun one. Make a very alcohol rich rum cake so that you can still take the alcohol. Now, pour the batter into the cake bakepops pan and bake it. Now make a buttercream or whipped cream icing with Kahlua in it. Stick the sticks into the cake balls and then ice them with the Kahlua cream. For an extra touch of fun, use a candied orange peel over the center like a belt.
Labor Day, 4th of July, Memorial Day American Bakepops – This is simple. I would make a white cake and drop little red white and blue sprinkles into the batter. Then I would use a white butter cream for the icing and drop star shaped red white and blue candies on them. Sprinkles work too.
Valentines day bakepops. These cake pops are amazing. Use a dark and rich red velvet cake batter and do a white chocolate icing with red food coloring to dye it red. Then use red heart shaped candies or cinnamon dot candies or chocolate sprikles on them to make a rich, dark and chocolaty valentines bakeoppos cakepops treat for you and your lover.
Summertime Cakepops. This is one of my favorite. Do a lemon batter with lemon icing, your pick on the type and then after you place the stick and ice them, shave a lemon with a grater so you get lemon zest for decoration on the top. You can also do this with oranges and then refrigerate them. Now you have amazing cake pop recipes for the summer that are cooling and refreshing and more importantly, delicious.
The as seen on tv bakepop pan makes cake pops easily. By using the cake pops recipes I provided above, but using your own batter recipes, you and your friends will enjoy cakepops recipes and treats all summer and year round. I absolutely love the bakepop pan because everywhere you go people charge way to much for cake pops. The thing I love about cake pops are they are small enough to help you not overeat your portions of cake and fun enough to be able to make and show off at parties. I don’t have a bakepop pan, but I definitely plan on buying one soon. If you own one or want to share your own bakepop pan recipes, feel free to leave a comment below.
