OHMIGOD OHMIGOD OHMIGOD!!! While perusing Kohl's a few weeks ago, I came across the Babycakes line of amazing tools to make cute tiny delicious baked goods.
There is the donut maker and the cupcake maker, neither of which call to me. I am not a donut fan and I think it's just as easy to make cupcakes in a cupcake pan as in a cupcake maker.
There is a cake pops one that I kinda wanna play with. I have not been successful in making them in the past, and maybe the cake pop one will help me. Or maybe I'll pass on that one.
BUT... I HAD to buy this one. It's a tiny whoopie pie maker!!
Ohhhh man did I have fun with this guy after dinner! It makes perfect and cute tiny whoopie pies! I am thinking you could also do pancakes in it, but I don't find pancakes to be very exciting. Don't judge me.
It came with a little metal cinnamon sprinkler, a thing to lift the cakes out, a little cooling rack, an instruction book with recipes, a NICE frosting bag and a frosting tip. It said on the box it comes with two tips, but I only got one. It's cool, I already have the tip they were adding in, I don't need another. Here is what I made, pre-assembly (of the pies, not the pie baker).
The tops are a bit brown. I will have to figure out a good cooking time. The booklet suggests 2 and a half minutes, but that is far too long!
There is another one I wanna get. It makes... PIE POPS. It has cavities for six tiny pies with holders for lollipop sticks. Now, I am not a huge sweet pie fan. But I LOVE savory ones! I am planning to buy the pie pops maker and make meat pies and bean pies and cheese pies!
If you like baking and like whoopie pies, I would recommend this gadget. It's SO awesome. I can't say that enough. It rules.
