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.
