I usually don't want the latest in kitchen gadgets, but this year I told my husband I wanted a cake pop maker:
It's a small piece of equipment and I LOVE IT!
I mixed up a small cake mix to try it out:
And they came out PERFECT the first time:
And I even took this a step further.....
and decided to make a polka dot cake. I put the cake balls into cake batter:
During the baking, I pushed some deeper into the pan, so that the polka dots would be at different levels:
and it turned out well:
Next time I want to try a chocolate cake with white balls!
And it was served on really cute depression glass cake plates that I bought at the flea market last week for only $2.00!

  1. Leave it to you Patti! Sooooo clever and I'm sure very tasty!

  2. Looks delicious! I love the way you added the balls, the end result is so lovely! Did you use the cake balls from the first batch for the second cake? Thanks for your visit and your sweet words. Happy Sunday to you~Poppy

  3. Oh now I want a cake pop maker! I just went to an open house and she had a platter of cake pops for the kids. So adorable! Love the dish too! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Thanks for letting me know the pop maker works great! Might be my next kitchen toy:@)

  5. A cake pop maker? I wondered how they did that. Have a great week!

  6. This is so neat! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I love the polka dot cake - What a clever idea! I can see the cake pop maker getting lots of use.

  8. I saw that little machine and I wondered if it worked. I'm glad to see that it does. I love the idea of the polka dot cake. Chocolate and white would be great or you could color white mix any colors you dots in a pink/red cake or yellow dots in a white cake. The possiblities are endless!

  9. This is such a fun idea. My kids would love it. I am a new follower visiting from Hope Studios. Vicky from Mess For Less

  10. That is a great idea! I should have made that to go with my polka dot table!

  11. I found your link at Coastal Charm and I bet this will be the next big thing on Pinterest...especially if you do other colors too! So cute for a little girl's birthday or a baby shower!
