TheGloss Test Drives A Cake Pop Machine

God, it’s going to be hard to write this without making you jealous.

We got a cake pop machine from Kohls. God, they’re like Santa Claus. I don’t know why. We just woke up one morning and there was a cake pop machine. On a side note, I think it’s worth pointing out that I’ve been reading The Secret and have been spending most of my days shouting “bring me cake pops” to the universe (not really). You’ve had cake pops, right? They sell them at Starbucks. They’re little balls of cake entire submersed in icing. They’re the new cupcake.

But could we make them? Ourselves? Armed with only a cake pop machine sent by angel-people at Kohls? We’ll take you through the harrowing adventure step by step.

      Cool buttermilk tip, I didn’t know you could make your own buttermilk.

      But seriously, why is it getting buttermilk at the grocery store such a pain in the ass?

      I know that this defeats the whole point of the machine, but the reason they don’t taste like Starbucks is that this is not how they’re made. Generally you take cake that’s been baked according to the directions on box, and blend it with frosting. Roll into balls and dip into melted chocolate. Basically these are just mini cakes dipped in glaze.

      To be a snooty baker lady, you’re not supposed to microwave the butter to soften it. It does something to the butter and will mess with the texture of your cake. Or cake pop.

      Its not really a huge deal, but its something that bothers me. I’m sorry. I have issues.

      I laughed rather hard at two things:

      1. “Oh, your grocery store sucks too?”
      2. “Lying elf hat food dye.”
