Cake pops are popping up everywhere these days. They are on blogs, in bakeries that want to make good use of leftover cake and frosting and are even sold at Starbucks. There are several books available that guide you through the process of making them, too. They are not difficult and most are shaped by hand – but as with all hand-shaped things, the look of the finished product depends on the skill of the user. In other words, if you don’t have the time to practice shaping your pops, you might not get results that look quite as good as the pictures in those lovely books. The solution to this is the My Little Cupcake Cake Pop Mold.
The Cake Pop Mold is a pink plastic mold that is shaped like a small cupcake and is designed to shape your cake pops. To use it, you simply pack the mold full of your cake pop mixture (which is usually cake+frosting or oreo crumbs+cream cheese) and press it closed. Excess pop mixture is pushed out of the mold and you’re left with a perfect looking cupcake in seconds!Â It is faster than shaping the pops by hand and easy enough that kids can do it, too. The finished cupcake shapes should be refrigerated for a bit to help them firm up before decorating, but they can then be dipped in chocolate and put on a stick to serve.
