Please let me know

  1. I use the Pillsbury cake box mixes and they work out great. I put them in for about five minutes and the turn out nice and golden brown. I tried Duncan Hines and those did not pop up as well so I would suggest the Pillsbury box. Happy Pop Making!

      • I used Duncan Hines Chocolate extra moist mix. I cut the the 1/4 cup of water and used 1 cup of milk instead of water. I also used a little less oil. The cake pops came out great. Solid on the out side and super moist in the middle.

        A little bit of spray or margarine between batches in the cake pop wells makes the little cakes pops super easy to take out of the maker.

        Good luck!

  2. There are a few different ones I have seen posted here. I haven’t had time to try them out yet.

    One of them said to cut the water amount on the cake mix in 1/2 and use milk instead. Add one package of instant pudding to the cake mix.

    The other one I saw said to use a White Betty Crocker cake mix, vanilla pudding, 1 cup of milk, 3 eggs, 1/4 water and 2 tbsp of oil.

    I will be trying out the chocolate cake mix with chocolate pudding next weekend.

    • I made a chocolate cake mix and used half the amount of water and substituted it with milk. I added a chocolate instant pudding to the cake mix and added the other ingredients (eggs and oil).

      They turned out fine. They are lighter than the vanilla cake pop recipe in the booklet.

      I then squeesed some canned frosting into the centre of them when they had cooled using a cake decorating kit. Then I took my plastic forks (two prongs, found with the toothpicks at the supermarket) and dipped them into the melted candy melts and put them in on the opposite side of the cake pop. So the little hole where I filled some icing in was at the top of the cake pop. When that had set, I dipped the cake pop into the melted candy melts.

  3. This was the first time I made cake pops! I also used the Pilsbury Moist Supreme yellow cake mix. Although it already says on the box: “1 Cup of Pudding in the Mix” I also added one box of instant vanilla pudding. I used 1% milk instead of water and used the required 1/3 cup oil and 3 eggs as required/stated on the box. I baked them for 4 minutes! They came out great. Moist with a more dense consistency. After I let them fully cool I refrigerated them overnight before dipping them in chocolate. Yum! Yum! Yum!

    • I fill the batter into my Wilton cookie press, with the #10 tip, and it fills the Babycakes Pops tray in less than a minute. One squeeze per pop. 5 minutes & perfect round balls every time.
      I do wipe oil in the pop tray (top & bottom) before I bake & wipe it out.

    • Did you make them?

      I had a smaller cake pouch of Spice Cake mix so I only used a half box of Vanilla Instant Pudding.

      I thought they tasted great. I squeesed a bit of buttercream frosting into each cake pop.

  4. Just bought a babycakes cupcake maker at the thrift store. I need swas bordewsome instructions. Do you use papers or put the mix directly on maker?
