How did she get it to that point? I'd like to know...

(GAG) Food processor. (GAG!) Sorry, I can't even watch the videos of the rolling (GAG), or see them balled up (GAG) without thinking of the texture (GAAAG!)

Ever since getting teeth, I have liked to chew my own food, and the gloppy, gooey prechewed texture is just too much for me!

I own one, and have the same gag response as above. What I've found, though, is that if people don't know how it's done they think these little poo-balls are wonderful.

I was messing around the other day, with my cakes tops, and some carved off pieces of cake, and I mashed them together a bit, and had a bite, and it was okay, not too bad, nothing to write home about...So I mashed and mashed and tried it again...YUCK! But then I kneaded it like she does in the video and warmed it quite a bit with my hands and it lost all texture and turned fondant-like and was stretchy and gooey. It as all I could do to put it to my lips, but I did, and GAG!!! so nasty! I let it cool. and set and set for about 3 hours, and it was a little less nasty, but still horrible. I really can't see serving these to people!

@Sugarmama5 - Yup, I'd like to at least give it a try to see if I can't make it work. Let me know how much you would be willing to sell it for and maybe we can work something out!

I am considering purchasing this cake pop roller....but after reading this thread, I am now skeptical...I would expect the roller to include recipes. hmmmm...for a first time cake pop maker making such a costly purchase, I had hoped to have recipes to make "cake dough" .... what's cake dough? is it cooked or uncooked?8-O

Cake dough is baked then crumbled cake , mashed and kneaded soooo much it gets dough-like. I bought the roller. Seriously, walk away.

Try following the instructions and using the recipe provided that comes with it. It's not going to work for every consistency you want to use. There is a learning curve to using it. Just like rolling fondant or icing a cake, it takes some practice to use one of these. The ratio of icing to cake is 100% cake, 0% icing. You crumble the cake using a food processor.

 

Obviously if you use drier cake than what they recommend, then you need to add a little moisture.
