Nordicware Cake Pop Pan, Multi
Bought my pop pan a couple of weeks ago and tried out the recipe on the cardboard sleeve.I ended up with twelve mini volcanoes,all the cake mix came out through the holes in the top,making an unholy mess and no pops!! Don't know what I did wrong,I consider myself to be a competent baker and will have another go using a different recipe,but not for a while,too traumatized by my baking shame. As a "by the way" I think for what it is this product is hugely overpriced and that is not just sour grapes because my pops failed.

I got this type of pop cake tin as I was told they are better than silicone.... Well, firstly the cakes stuck fast and broke up when trying to remove them, second batch I left till cold and still they broke in half, then when washing them up I badly cut my finger on the very sharp edge's, so be warned when using them.... I'm now going to get a silicone one.

Perfect cake pops!
After reading some of the reviews I was in two minds whether to order this product but I'm so glad I did. Baked even, moist cake pops that were very positively received by everyone!
I used cake release to grease the tin and the cakes came out with no problems. The only tiny improvement I can think of is if there was a 24 hole version!

I was really very unimpressed and disappointed with this :(
Purchased this as soon as I noticed it had appeared on the website a good few months ago, as I had read about cake pops and was very keen on trying to make them. When it arrived, I decided to do a children's picnic for and make these. Followed instructions for cake pops and when it came to taking them out of the oven, it was a tough job! The cakes were not perfectly round - they were fidgety to take out and kept breaking in half. I had to make sure my ganace and icing was thick enough to stick the cake pops together to avoid any further crumbling/breaking. When I tried coating them, with my icing, ganace, buttercream etc, it became extremely messy. in order for them to set I ried to refridgerate them however the only way I was able to do this was by piercing them with the cake pop stick and standing them in something firm as the weight of the sponge on the top opened the cake more and wasnt securely on the stick which completely ruined my cake :(( most of the cake was left in the cake pop pan, the lovely cream finish had turned brown and was quite smelly after one use. The pan has two small metal "clip things" that hold the top pan in place when cakes are being baked in the oven, these slipped out very easily and again, were fidgety.
This was used back in July 2012, and its been kept in the cupboard since, unfortunately! I may attempt to use this again, but for the price, I honestly think it wasn't worth it. And the fact that its a well-known baking brand - Nordicware - maybe I set my hopes too high?
Definitely a thumbs down from me I'm afraid :|

Cake pop pan
Perfect for cake pops. Non-stick, perfecly formed sponge balls turn out everytime. I haven't used the silicone cake pop pans so I could not add a comment in comparison but in deciding whether to go for the tin or the silicone I am so pleased I went for the tin as it bakes evenly and does not require placement on an additional tray for rigidity whilst on the wire oven shelf, unlike many of my silicone cake pans. I would recommend this tin.
