In my attempt to turn on the oven as little as possible this school year, I have discovered yet another easy, quick, and CLEAN meal to make with the Baby Cake Cake Pop Maker!
Last week while grocery shopping The Tween went crazy for the Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls – especially since they are sporting the TWO Box Tops for Education right now. I absolutely LOVE these little things, so it did not take much convincing, but I said “well, we have to eat them on the weekends, you know we aren't going to have time before school.” She agreed and we stocked up on a few tubes.
This morning I had a craving for something sweet, and looking in the fridge I had the thought… “I wonder if I cut them up if they would cook in the Cake Pop Maker.” Let me tell you if I have not convinced you that you need one of these things with the 27 OTHER posts I have done on Cake Pops, this one alone is a reason to order one right this second. (they are even on SALE on Amazon– check them out!!)
ALL YOU NEED: (I mean, does it get any easier!?)
I thought initially that I would only have to cut the Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls in half. I kinda rolled them just a bit to put most of the cinnamon part on the inside of the cake. Like this:
However when I put them in the Baby Cake Cake Pop Maker, they were a bit too big – and I had no idea how much those things RISE!! And FAST!
I cut the remaining rolls in half again (so quarter them from the beginning and you will have no problem) and they cooked up perfectly. I cooked them for about three minutes in the Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker to make sure they were done all the way through.
While the Cinnamon Roll Cake Pops are still hot, you can dip them into the icing that comes with the Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls for absolute perfection! Microwave the icing for a few seconds if needed to make it easier to dip. Since the Cinnamon Roll Cake Pops cook so quickly, I noticed the icing doesn't have as much time to sit out and warm up like if you had to cook the rolls for 10 minutes in the oven. The end result is a bite-sized perfection:
They lasted all of 4 seconds once I set them on the counter for the girls. They LOVED them and I totally got the “wow Mom, you are SUCH a good cook” symphony… boy do I have them fooled.
These Cinnamon Roll Cake Pops will no doubt be a staple for this house during this school year. One “ingredient” + four minutes = BREAKFAST! Can't beat that! Add this to my growing list of “Reasons Every Mom Needs a Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker!”
