Babycakes Cake Pop Maker For Donut Holes


So I think I made it clear just how much I LOVE the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker.   I am so excited that the wonderful folks at Select Brands are going to give one to one of my readers!    Before I tell you how you can win, I have to show you another tasty treat you can make with the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker.   Donut holes!    One of our favorite desserts is donut holes with chocolate and caramel dipping sauces.  If you have never dipped a donut hole into some caramel sauce, trust me, do it.  Oh my word, it’s GOOD.

To make donut holes, you really follow the same steps as you would follow to make cakepops.    I tried a few recipes, but hands down the favorite recipes in our house were the ones that came from the Babycakes website.

I used and highly recommend their chocolate and sour cream donut recipes

I think they have done a great job of developing recipes that work extremely well with their products.   Both my husband and daughter said they preferred these to Dunkin Donuts (fried) donut holes.    You can whip these up quicker than you could run to Krispy Kreme, and because they are not fried, they really are a great choice if you are going to have donut holes.

Here’s a quick visual of how I created these donut holes…

I made a simple glaze for mine – powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla and enough milk to get it to the consistency that I wanted.    I poured my glaze into a pan and then rolled my donut holes around in the glaze, then set them on a rack to let the extra drip off.   I think adding some maple instead of vanilla would be a great alternative.   You could also roll them around in powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar, whatever you like.


Even better with some dipping sauces!

So would you like to win one???   And make your own doughnut holes and cake pops at home, quickly and easily?

You can make donut holes in your cake pop maker!

  47. Brittany says

    My boyfriend and I just moved into our first apartment, so we’re broke, but this is defintely something to look into for next Christmas! :)

  51. says

    I didn’t even know there was such a thing as this maker. I made cake balls last time we went to the beach as a treat for everyone. Wow…..what a hit they were. A maker like this would be so much fun to have. Thank you for the chance.

  52. Rachel says

    This is the best solution ever for making perfect cake pops. The traditional way of making the cake and icing mess is always too much icing. I can’t wait to try it out….and donuts….who doesn’t love a donut!

  55. Rachel says

    Oh my word, this would be awesome! My best friend is getting married and wants to make cake pops for her favors… this would SAVE MY TAIL in having to make a jillion cake pops by hand, lol

  56. Lisa says

    This is the coolest thing — my kids would worship the ground I walk on if I could make them glazed donut holes!!

  57. Kellie Hollister says

    I love your review on the cake pop maker, I too am one that I thought I would have thought I had died and gone to heaven with the original cake pops, but I find that I just am not a true cake pop lover. Of course when I saw your post about the cake pop maker and how the taste is close to a donut, I couldn’t pass that up. Crossing my fingers I win, otherwise I guess I’ll just have to buy one. :-)

  58. awgirl says

    I have never seen this!!! What a great and easier way to make cake pops!!! I LOVE IT and want one!!! Yippeeeeeee

  59. Susan Hart says

    I just accidentally discovered your blog today — and I’m already a devoted follower! Keep on baking!

  60. Dianne Denton says

    Super idea! I love the donuts! My kids would have a blast creating their own donuts and whatever glaze or sprinkles they want!

  61. Dianne Denton says

    Excellent! This would be fun to do with my daughter and her friends when they have a sleep over….which is often! We would be the hit of the town!

  62. Dianne Denton says

    A creative, innovative, and fun treat! I was thinking how much fun my kids would have with this but I think the grown ups would sure love it, too!!!

  63. says

    oh how I love cake pops, but recently decided next time I would use timbits ( donut holes) This little machine would solve all of my problems! :)

  64. Love is in the Details says
