The Big Book of BabyCakes: CAKE POP MAKER RECIPES

The irresistible homemade morsels are back. Bake and decorate an even wider variety of treats! Homemade bite-sized fun!

I have always wanted to try and make cake pops. Sometimes I see coffee shops that sell them, but they are a bit expensive in my opinion. I've finally discovered a great recipe book that can show me how easy to make cake pops. Cake pops are so much fun to make, decorate and serve! These recipes feature brand-new flavors and unique applications for the amazingly versatile BabyCakes Cake Pop Maker.

This big book contains many pages of recipes and step-by-step color photos that provide inspirational ideas, teaching you to create beautiful and fun decorations. I love how it gives you fantastic ideas for gifts, centerpieces, and any occasion.

The mini doughnut balls (or doughnut pops) are my favorite. You can creat so much more than just miniature cakes, including doughnuts, muffins, brownies, not to mention breakfast bites, biscuits, meatballs and tapas. These are amazingly delicious!
