Cake Pops-No More Hand Rolling!!! - Page 3

post #31 of 103
she should send one to Bakerella... she has such a huge following. Way too expensive for me. I hate making cake balls, especially dipping them.

I just saw the one on pastrychef.com for marzipan. It's exactly like this one...exactly...except it makes smaller balls. So...the person selling this one didn't "invent" this device; she's just selling one that makes bigger balls. I only say this because on her Facebook page, she takes credit for "designing" it. Anyway...I hope she gets lots of orders.

I love making cake balls, and sell TONNES, but its still a little steep for me icon_sad.gif

wow.. omg it is identical to the one on pastrychef! Would she get into trouble copying the design so closely? I bet if it's successful the original designer is going to be asking for compensation!

I looked at her page and don't see where she's taking all the credit. She is apparently commissioning the manufacture of a different size for a different purpose (specifically, cake balls). I don't think it's any different than Joy Mangano adding felt-y stuff to hangers and selling huggable hangers as if she were a genius (uh, dry cleaners have been putting foam on their hangers for decades). But it was SHE who took the initiative and had them manufactured to her specifications for sale. Joy most definitely didn't invent the hanger, but she did brand the idea and mass produce it.

Yeah...Someone asked if she designed it and she says, "I didicon_smile.gif"

No, she didn't design it. She had one made that makes bigger balls than the one already being sold on pastrychef.com. Other than that, it's exactly the same. It might not be a big deal, but then again, it might be to the person who actually DID design/invent it.

But was anyone already selling hangers with felt-y stuff on them before Joy? (I don't know.) That would be the difference. The exact product this person is selling is already on the market, except that it makes smaller balls. I really could see the actual inventor coming after her if it starts selling.

Amazing...if I made them, I'd buy it...but I don't, so I won't. Will save the site tho!

Thanks for pointing out the original gadget WykdGud.. didn't know they existed. They even come in a single roller for about $35 US.. might grab myself one for fondant balls/pearls.

I want to find something affordable that will make, like, 1" round balls for the borders of topsy turvy (etc) tiered cakes...I HATE rolling all those!!!

You've got to be kidding on the price! Well, not you, but them.

The owner emailed me back. She has pre-orders for 30 so far. I told her I felt comfortable ordering because it was Paypal. She said that was the reason she picked Paypal and chose the $1.00 reservation. I haven't ordered yet.

I made cake balls for the first time last night....flip'n delicious. But...the dipping process is so tedious and downright boring!!! Glad I'm not alone.

I think that it looks super cool - but the price is ridiculous. I mean, my dobord was only like $70. And I would use my dobord way more than a cake bite roller. Crazy expensive! Plus, there's something special about handrolled things.

call me crazy but looks like you could probably make the same thing using those white wilton formers that you use for flowers? line them up, attach them together somehow and then make a "case" to hold them all together and give you some support so the top one can roll over it.
