Amazing Cake Pops and Sun Cake Pops

There’s nothing nicer after a week at home then making some cake pops with my mom.  A couple Christmases ago, I got her this cake pops maker and since then, I’ve been making cake pops whenever I’m home.  She’s super patient and helpful (not at all like me) and so is a great cake pop partner in crime.

Thus I was really excited to have a copy of Amazing Cake Pops to share with her.  This book is quite simple – it’s a cake pops encyclopedia.  There are a massive number of designs that you can create (it’s divided by category so that, for example, the space section includes alien designs, spaceships, astronauts, UFOs).  The one thing I will say is that these aren’t the simplest cake pop decorations – they require steady hands, an understanding of basic cake pop making and a good eye for shapes!  Cake pops are always a great treat to bring to parties or into work – it’s a nice little cake treat.  So these are designs which would be perfect gifts or finger food.  I’m really glad I expanded my design horizons this way and definitely would recommend the book to cake pop lovers.
