There is a special Facebook just for people to talk about it Best Cake Pops.

I had the same exact experience as Leah. I spent hours in the kitchen trying to make round cake balls but they were square. I had to reshape them by rolling them. What is the point of the roller if i still have to use my hands? I finally gave up. I was really looking forward to using it for a large order. : (

I was having the same experience and getting frustrated when I called and spoke to Jennifer and she was pretty responsive and spent probably way more time with me than she should haveicon_smile.gif The tool works well for me now. One of the tips I picked up was turning the logs on their side. When they lay flat,(the position they are in when they are formed) and the log isnt thick enough, the dough does not fill the channels well enough and when it rolls it leaves the flat surface or square effect. now you can play with thickness of the frame, however I found that simply flipping the logs on their side allows enough room to roll properly...don't give up! When you figure out what works for you, and get rolling (he, he), it will be well worth the time spent figuring it out. It was for me. good luck

Calling all CC's who bought the Cake Pop Roller... have you received it yet? Do you recommend it? I am tempted to buy, but @ $269.99 plus tax & shipment it is a very pricey tool. Truly appreciate if you can comment. Thanks!

I love it. I haven't had any problems with it. It saves me sooooo much time. I have read that some people have had their cakeballs come out square, but I haven't ran into that problem. It is pricey, but it's worth it if you do a lot of cake pops. IMHO

Thanks Nick

I just did cake pops for the first time and if I go off most of the comments, it does not sound like the best investment. I don't want square cake balls that I have to shape round and I want to use the recipe I used, not change it. So, though there is a couple of yeahs, there sounds like more nays. And I do find it disturbing that your not allowed to post comments on their sites about it. So in general, those who bought it do you say yeah or nay?
post #188 of 212
I think most of the people that had problems were due to the consistency of the dough and how many times you roll it. I think you just have to find your groove with it (= I give it a YAY!

I agree... the fact that the website from the company that sells Cake Pop Rollers does not allow consumers to post comments worries me. So I am counting on all of you here on this CC thread that have bought it... PLEASE post comments. Would hate to invest on another expensive tool to have it seat on a shelf accumulating dust.
Thanks!

I haven't tried mine yet, but if I find that I can't use my recipes with very little binder and some alcohol. Mine will be for sale at half off to whoever wants it. I use very little additive. So am I understanding that the balls must be rather wet or sticky?

See this is what I am wondering, cause I don't want that either. I didn't use a lot of the binder when I made cakepops the first time and I can 't see adding more either.

I have used my roller a couple of times and I LOVE it!!!! I ordered it at the ICES convention after I saw the lady demo it. I used it for scraps/cake tops and I also baked a cake in a 10 round just to roll.

The cake balls come out perfect both with icing and without icing added. My only problem is eating them! We have to test them you know!

Good to know Cindi. Did you use various textures?
post #194 of 212
scp, hi! The first time, I just put some thawed out white cake scraps in the food processor and didn't add anything. I have been saving cake scraps to play with, in my new roller, which just came last week.

The second time, I baked a 10 inch round, we added 1/2 cup of chocolate icing. My cakes are more like pound cake and very moist. They rolled just fine. Just like in Jennifer's video.

If you take the cake and squish it in your hand and it sticks together like dough, it should work.

Cindi, that is basically what I do. No binder, a tiny bit of binder and sometimes alcohol. I'm not a fan of cake pops, but the public sure is, so I will be selling them. I haven't started yet. I've just been playing with combinations. Thanks for your input. That helps.
