Hi everyone, I had the pleasure of meeting with Heavenly Cake Pops, The Best Cake Pops at the Bash Conference I attended earlier this year. They were doing product demos of their Cake Pop rolling tool, “The Mini Easy Roller“. So I decided as an amateur cake pop baker I’d test this out to see how easy it was.
Below is a picture of what the product comes with and also items I purchased to complete the pops.
- Roller Machine
- Rulers of different sizes for measuring your dough
- Wilton Candy Melts (I purchased at Michaels)
- 1 cooled, baked cake (Also, I purchased and baked)
So first you can see the roller is medium in size and comes completely apart. Great for cleaning!
After you’ve baked the cake, I put the cooled cake in mixer to grind it all up. I didn’t add frosting to make this texture, just once the cake is all crumbled it turns into this moist texture. Then I formed it into a ball using my hands and wax paper on both sides.
When using the measuring sticks they provide, you make a log with the dough. Then place it on the machine and roll back and forth. You discard the extra dough that collects on the sides back into the your dough pile. Then WALLAH, you have these lil balls that are the same size. (NOTE: this is the quick version, they provide instructions that are very clear on what to do)
These are the candy melts over my makeshift double boiler. I added a lil bit of cream to help them to get to the right consistency. You can also add Paramount Crystal Flakes, which lots of professional bakers use to keep the melts from drying.
Some of my taste testers and I think they were perfectly happy with the outcome and enjoyed having cake pops at home.
Now, don’t judge me on my dipping skills because like I said above, this isn’t my forte. They were great though and I would recommend The Best Cake Pops roller to anyone.
