The Cake Pop Maker by Rosenstein & Söhne is a solid device, which unfortunately is not very convincing in quality. The device looks unstable and also the shape of the baked cake pops resembles round balls only to a limited extend. Nevertheless, the device bakes cake pops in a very short time and you can definitely eat them.
The Cakepop-Maker by Rosenstein & Söhne comes in a simple design. The first impression of this device is ok, but it looks a bit unstable because the lid is loosely fastened. With this Cake-Pop-Maker, you can prepare 12 cake pops.
In the scope of delivery are:
Before the first use, you should clean the baking tray of this appliance with a damp cloth and only then grease it with butter, margarine or baking fat and connect it to the mains. This cake pop maker needs approx. 3 minutes to heat up. When the ideal operating temperature is reached, the green light illuminates. With the help of a teaspoon or a piping bag, you can add the dough to the baking tray. A recipe from the instructions was used for the dough used in the test:
Vanilla cake pops:
- 125 g flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 small pinch of salt
- 125 g butter
- 100 g sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Glaze to decorate as desired
When adding the dough, it is important not to pour too much dough into the baking trays. The baking time is about 4-6 minutes. When performing the test, it was noticeable that a lot of smoke came out of the appliance, especially during the first rounds. Even after several procedures, it did not become less. In addition, the dough oozed out on the side, although special care was taken to ensure that little dough was added to the baking tray recesses.
According to the manufacturer, the baking time is approx. 4 minutes, which was also roughly measured in the test procedure. However, the indicator lights here do not indicate when the cake pops are ready - the indicator lights only serve to indicate when the appliance is ready to heat up.
The result of the cake pops is satisfactory. They often don't look like real balls but have an oval shape.
Despite the heat-insulated handle, it gets very hot and can only be opened with a baking glove. Since the whole appliance gets very hot, you have to wait about 30 minutes to be able to clean it.
The appliance or the baking trays are not dishwasher-safe and must, therefore, be cleaned with a damp cloth.
