Happy Saturday Cake-nistas and stos.
It's extremely beautiful outside today. A tornado touched down a block away last week, so I definitely wasn’t expected a sunny Saturday. Luckily for all of us it was an F-0 and no one got hurt. So, I'm hoping that every one of you have managed to stay safe and continue to.
We've introduced a new type of video to the Cake Boutique. I'm still working on the energy of the video, so it will get better as we progress. MCC's 'Test Kitchen' is basically a product review of a Cake Decorating or Culinary tool. It's kind of like old school vs. new school. Each time we do a test kitchen we'll do a small tutorial on how to use the product, as well as how to do whatever the product is meant to do, but by hand. This week’s video was Babycakes Pie Pop Oven vs. Home-baked.
I'd say the Babycakes oven is definitely a time saver when it comes to knocking out pie pops in minutes. It generally took about 2 minutes to cook 6 pie pops which is crazy.
If you want precision and uniformity then definitely go with the Babycakes oven.
On the other hand...
To use the Babycakes oven you sacrifice the look and feel of rustic home baked pie pops. Preparing your pies by hand means beautiful fork pressed edges, more filling and a glossy sugar topping. So, if you want a rustic, down home pie pop, you're definitely going to have to do them by hand. A true
Cake-nista enjoys the work behind it, so go enjoy a picnic or bbq with a homemade cake pop!
