Blueberry Muffin CakePops {birthday preview}

For Valentine's Day, my dear mother-in-law got me the As seen on TV Bake Pop Cake Pop Pan, well actually she got more than one... but that's a different story. She was super excited because it looked like something I would use, which is funny because JUST last week I was in JC Penny debating whether to spend the money on the pan. But I'm stingy frugal cheap, so I didn't buy it. Plus, for the past few months I have been feverishly entering Cake Pop Maker giveaways to no avail. So... YAY! I now can make cake pops (oh, I am not a huge fan of the mix-cake-with-icing-roll-into-a-ball cake pops. They are WAY to sweet for me).

Let's jump ahead to the fact that Charlotte is having her 3rd birthday party ON SATURDAY (ahh!). Well, I have to fit in some cake pops right? Of course I do. The problem is I am already making a cake for the Strawberry Shortcake themed party. AND (shh don't tell) I am going to have a food from each of her "berry best friends"... as in Raspberry, Blueberry, Orange, Lemon, and Plum.

I came up with Blueberry Muffins for, well... Blueberry Muffin (that is the friends' name anyway) so off to google I went with "muffin mix in cake pop pan" and didn't get many results. However, I did see in some random comment that someone used actual blueberries in their cake pop maker and it burnt on real bad. Yikes! But I have more than one of these pans AND I'd rather use a mix, so what the hey. Off to the grocery store I go and I find a blueberry muffin mix that uses just water.

I replace the water with milk (this was a tip from the instruction book) and I fill up my pans a little less than halfway. The cake mix we used the day before for a "trial run" of the pans TOTALLY overflowed.


On goes the lid.


15 minutes later... hmmm. Well, I guess I under filled them this time.


BUT... if you roll them over... voila!! It works!! Woo hoo.

I added a glaze which was oh-so-yummy that night... but it kinda soaked in by the next morning.


I think for the party, I will either throw these on a stick and glaze them right before the party OR roll them in a cinnamon crumb topping.

Enjoy! Happy Cake pop-ing!

  11. They look good, I got the Babycakes Cake Pop maker for Christmas from my mom and I love it. I have found you have to experiment with the amount you use for each recipe because they all rise differently. I am sure it's similar with your pans. I have experimented with a lot of different things in my maker, hence my blog. Try brownies in your pans, they are so good, have that yummy brownie crunch on the outside and gooey on the inside.
