Perfect for Pops!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kitchen Craft Sweetly Does It 20 Hole Silicone Cake Pop (Kitchen & Home)
I bought this item as I was unable to get one of the electric makers from Ebay or Lakeland as they are constantly out of stock. After reading other peoples reviews I was unsure whether this would be a good choice but after trying it I am sold, it is brilliant!!
In answer to some peoples problems:
I used Fry Light to grease the pods before putting in the mixture. This is a lot cheaper than the "cake release" spray that you can buy and works just as well.
The recipe I used is the following, easy to make and very tasty - 125 grams self-raising flour
125 grams caster sugar
125 grams unsalted butter soft
2 medium eggs
½ teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
Put all ingredients into a mixer and cream together until well combined and pale in colour. Use a teaspoon and fill each pod with mixture so that each pod is full and a little domed. Put the top on the maker and cook at gas mark 5 for around 15-20 minutes. Push a cake tester through the holes to ensure they are cooked. Leave to cool and then pop out of the mould!

This recipe turned out perfectly for me too. I cooked for 18 minutes at 180C fan oven. Make sure you leave the pops to cool well.

My sponge cake pops wouldn't stay still on the sticks. They were loose and swung round. Do you have any tips for me?

Glue the pops to the sticks before covering them. I dip a stick in melted covering,into the pop,and leave to cool. Do the whole batch like this so you have 20 bare pops on sticks, then go back to the 1st that you did and cover it completely. Hope this helps
