Cake Pop Makers - What Are They and How Do They Work?
If you have ever had a difficult time decorating a cake, then you will find that cake pops are an answer to your problem. You do not have to use royal icing and other high-end decorations when you can use a cake pop maker and make these delicious treats for yourself. These gadgets are available in most home appliance stores and are very easy to use. They require no expertise and anyone can easily learn how to make them. It is easier to make them with a non-stick cooking spray that will allow you to avoid any mess or accidents.
There are several types of cake pop makers on the market. Some are more expensive than others. Some will allow you to decorate several cakes at once whereas others are only capable of baking one at a time. Once you select the cake pop maker that best suits your needs, you will have the option of purchasing a ready made one or making your own.
A cake pop maker consists of a series of equipment that are designed to help create uniform, flavorful baked treats. You will need a non-stick cooking spray and some plastic food coloring. You will also need a pastry bag for putting in your treats and a piping bag to pipe decorations on them. Make sure to thoroughly wash the pastry bag and the piping bag before beginning.
One of the most important pieces of equipment when using a cake pop maker is its non-stick surface. It must be non-stick or it will not hold the treats on its own. All of the equipment that goes into a cake pop maker is made to prevent sticking, which makes for less mess and the most efficient use of your time.
While not all cake pops are made with the same quality ingredients, they can all be just as yummy. They are all dipped in special sugar to provide an even coating. In order to make your treats last longer, you need to properly store them. Cake pop makers that have non-stick surfaces should be stored in a cool dry area. This way, they will not collect any grease over time and they will not be damaged by high temperatures. Most come with both a zipper handle and a wooden handle.
Many cake pops are produced with non-stick rubber feet, but some manufacturers do not. In this case, you may have better luck with a different kind. Cake pop makers that have non-stick rubber feet also provide a smoother surface for your treats. There are no suction cups to contend with, so there is no danger of damaging your baking creation.
These little treat machines are fairly inexpensive. You can purchase them for about thirty dollars. If you buy good quality machines, they can last for several years. They are small enough to easily fit on a countertop or table top and small enough to keep in the corner of a room. The amount of calories and sugar contained in a single serving of cake pop is minimal, making them a healthy treat as well. You can find cupcakes that taste just as good if not better than what you could get from a real cake.
Children love these treats, but adults do as well. It's hard not to feel guilty when you're having a chocolate or banana flavored treat while you watch television or play the computer. When you make your own cake pops, you can control the ingredients and therefore control the calories and sugar content. You won't have to feel guilty about it at all.
