The Baking Boutique Cake Pop Maker From QVC.
I am a huge fan of sweet and yummy treats, especially when it comes to making cakes.
Just recently I have become obsessed with wanting to try the latest craze, the cake pops.
I have been bookmarking fun recipes to try, and planning to treat us all to an electronic cake pop maker around Christmas, so me and the children can have fun making some and decorating them too.
With all this in mind I was very pleased when QVC UK asked me if I would like to review one of the silicone Baking Boutique cake pop set that they sell.
I was very interested in seeing how the cakes would turned out, being cooked in the oven.
What Are Cake Pops?
They are a form of cake styled as a lollipop – cake crumbs are mixed with icing or chocolate, and formed into small spheres or cubes in the same way as cake balls, before being given a coating of icing, chocolate or other decorations and attached to lollipop sticks.

When my parcel arrived I was impressed with the quality of the silicon mould and 72 reusable cake pop sticks you get in the set. I was really looking forward to trying it out and reading the recipes too. Aw no recipes included, this is such a shame as I would have like a few fun ideas and had no clue of the quantity of cake mixture to use!!
Getting started I made up my favourite cake mixture using-
175g Caster Sugar
175g Self raising flour
2 Tbsp of Cocoa powder
Setting The Cake Pop Sticks:
4 Piece of cooking chocolate
Decorating The Cakes Pops:
200g Cooking chocolate
- Pre heat oven 170c 325f/gas mark 3.
- Mix the margarine with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
- With a wooden spoon mix in the eggs one at a time, adding a little flour until all mixed in.
- Then use the electric whisk add the cocoa powder and mix well together all the ingredients
- Spoon the mixture into the cake pop tray.
- Cover with cake pop tray cover.
- Cook for around 20 minutes
- Leave to cool.
- Remove from the tray.
- Them place them back inside to add the cake pop sticks
- Melt the 4 piece of cooking chocolate in a microwave.
- Mix the end of the cake pop sticks inside the chocolate, then scoop a bit of the chocolate into the cakes.
- Place in fridge for 15 minutes so the cake pop sticks can set.
- Melt the cooking chocolate and place some rainbow sprinkles into a bowl.
- Dip the cake pops into the chocolate then into some sprinkles and place standing up into a cup.
- Leave to set.

I really like the cake pop maker, I think it would have been great with a recipe booklet.
My cake mix there was a bit left over so I also made 6 cupcakes too.
I think there is plenty with this recipe for 2 batches as I used a little too much mixture in the trays, with not really knowing how much to put in at first go.
The cakes did taste great but a few were a bit to heavy for the sticks and fell off!!
Just need to find the perfect recipe now .
