The Best Cake Pop Makers

Put cake in the shape of lollipops and you have a treat that’s fun, festive, and convenient. But making cake pops by hand can be tricky and time-consuming—that’s where a cake pop maker comes in. Instead of having to go through the many steps of baking, crumbling, mixing, and rolling, a cake pop maker lets you simply fill a mold with batter, and then it does the rest. There are both electric cake pop makers that plug into an outlet and baking molds that you can pop in the oven. We’ve pulled together a few different options to help you find the best one for you. When choosing a cake pop maker, consider versatility, shape, included extras, and price.
