I've never made cake pops but am hoping to start experimenting with them soon. I was looking for a book which would provide useful tips as well as have inspiration for novelty designs. This book is perfect. The book is absolutely strewn with photographs which is a very helpful addition.

It provides useful recipes for the actual cakes as well as various types of icing (royal, butter cream, cream cheese etc.) It provides information about the various 'dippings' such as how to temper chocolate (white and dark) and how to colour chocolate.

It has a whole section on technique which shows you how to make the cake pops, how to shape them, how to dip them and explains the different reasons for blooms, what they look like and how to avoid them.

That quickly sums up the first third of the book (approximately 40 pages). The next 80 pages provides tutorials on decorating the cake pops. This rather large portion of the book is divided into sections.

'Let's Celebrate' which includes; glitter balls, heart and star shaped pops, cupcake and cake slice pops, cake pops that look like truffles, pops that look like wrapped sweets / chocolates, ice cream and ice lolly pops and wrapped presents.

'Romantic Moments' which includes; decorated love hearts, pops with flower designs, little devils, engagement / ring box pops, bride and groom pops, wedding cake and flower pops.

'New Baby' which includes, pastel feet designs, teddies, bows, flowers and polka dot designs and dummy pops.

'Seasonal Style' which includes; Easter chicks and rabbits, ghosts and pumpkin pops, bats and eyeballs, Christmas trees and Santa hats, reindeer pops, snowflakes and robin pops.

And finally, 'Animal Friends' which includes; pigs, cows, chickens and sheep, hedgehogs, mushrooms, snails and owls,

Overall, a fantastic starting book considering the recipe ideas, technique tips and other helpful hints. As you can see, there are a fair amount of cake pop ideas to get you started. I honestly cannot recommend this book enough, I imagine I will be referring to it again and again. It is certainly what I was looking for, and more!

Got this book for a bargain price on Amazon and i absolutely love it. I am so glad i came accross it by chance as it has everything i was looking for from recipes to techniques, presentation to storage.
There's great ideas for all occasions, Christmas, halloween, easter, weddings, kids and more.
I wanted it more for the decorating ideas than anything else and this little book came up trumps for me - Best decorating ideas i have come accross anywhere. My pop cake bible.

I had a 60th birthday cake to make together with 150 cake pops! Your book was very helpful and made the process easy. I was very nervous but the step by step instructions meant that I was able to complete the task in time and the finished pops were wonderful. The fillings were divine. Excellent book - one to keep!

I got this book, hoping to make dozens of cake pops for the grandchildren at Christmas, but to be honest, I thought the recipes were easier said than done, as the icings and decorations were much harder to handle than the book made out. Am going back to making mini muffins as usual!

This book was a gift from a friend of mine. It inspired me to my first cake pops. As I was new to the whole cake popping business, it was really helpful. It gave me some very good ideas and, most important of all, my children loved the little treats!

On the down side the designs are nothing new or original and as mentioned before, most are made with fondant icing.
On the up side the troubleshooting is really helpful and there are some useful tips and a great recipe for coconut cake.
