The thing I was wondering about most when I was researching which Cake Pop Maker to buy was whether I wanted the product that makes 12 smaller cake pops, or this Nostalgia Electrics product which makes 6 larger cake pops/donut holes. Well, it turns out that this product's cake pops are much larger than the ones in Starbucks (just as a point of reference). So, I kind of wish I had gotten one of the brands that make the smaller sized cake pops. The cake pops that this maker creates seem almost twice as large as the Starbucks ones. That makes them kind of heavy for the sticks to stay in place really well sometimes. Anyway, I picked it up today, so, of course, I had to try it out right away. I wanted to make cake pops that are similar to the ones available in Starbucks right now. I used brownie mix to make my cake pops, and coated them with the meltable vanilla "chocolate" from the WalMart baking aisle, and rolled them in crushed peppermint candy. I haven't tasted them, but I baked the brownie pops for 10 minutes each (filling while unplugged as instructed on a YouTube video), and they seemed to come out a tad over cooked on the edges, and possibly a tad undercooked in the middle (the sticks had trouble staying in on some of them even though I coated them with icing first as the YouTube video suggested). I think having smaller sized cake pops would eliminate this "cooking all the way through" problem. I hope this review helps people who are wondering about size reference before you choose a product.
