    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 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 techniues 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 EnjoyHeidi
