Cake on a stick is now a trendy epidemic. You see them everywhere, from Starbucks to upscale bakeries. Perhaps this reflects our desire for continued indulgence that won't break the bank or our waistlines. Regardless the reasoning, "Crazy for Cake Pops" may be just the book to get you started making your own. If you have no idea how to begin I recommend starting here. My curiosity prompted a few purchases to see if I could figure out how they were made. You'll find some are made using the methods described in this book. Other pops come together in a more demanding method: spare time and personal skill will determine which is best for you. This cookbook is also a treasure trove of creative ideas on what to do with your cake pop potential. Perhaps you are confident in your skills as a home baker but need some encouragement to branch out and be creative. No problem. Molly Bakes offers great instruction and the photographs done by Noel Murphy are truly inspiring. Seeing all the potential, I realized if I had small children at home and needed birthday ideas, this book provided years of options. Some of the ideas are nice for adults as well. One of my personal favorites is the Mustache Pop on page 67. Lots of appeal results from combining them with bright red lip pops. Overall you'll find gorgeous illustrations and directions that are accessible to even beginning bakers. I have to admit, turning cakes into crumbs was an odd kind of fun. Once you've mastered these techniques, you can begin to branch out into your own combinations of flavor and excitement. Those beyond the beginning stages may actually want to jump right to that level and use "Crazy for Cake Pops" as your inspirational starting point for your own cake pop adventures. Enjoy! Heidi

In Crazy for Cake Pops, Molly Bakes makes creating cake pops easy and accessible. She confesses at the start of the book that she¿s only been baking for two years, but what a productive two years it has been! She started out with cupcakes and moved on to cake pops and has progressed from amateur baker to professional in a short time. In Crazy for Cake Popsthere are color photos and complete instructions that explain each step, so making the cake pops is very simple to accomplish. She outlines a simple ten step process that every one of the cake pops in Crazy for Cake Pops follows, starting with baking a cake and ending with eating them. Extra techniques are outlined in the back of Crazy for Cake Pops, including ideas like working with fondant by hand or with intricate molds. Molly likes to match her cake and frosting to really bring out the flavors. She offers several cake and frosting recipes, from the classic chocolate and vanilla to the less common (but yummy sounding!) peanut butter or toffee flavors. Crazy for Cake Pops shares a wide range of suggestions for cake pops for many different occasions. They are teddy bears, clowns, sushi, sheep, slices of cake, and gorgeous wedding rose pops. My favorite were the adorable, stick-less Chrimas Puddings cake pops ¿ just the perfect size to pop in your mouth! Even if you are a beginner, Crazy for Cake Pops will walk you right through the process to make cake pops that your friends and family will love.
