I read the title of this post and said “YES PLEASE”  I love that idea.  To throw some normal “cakeish” pops in there you could get that new cake pop maker and it’s only $20.  I love the ones with the frosting inside but just recently tried the regular cake ones to and they would be great in combo with.

@MrsGolden2Bee: I am all in favor of savory sweetness that I can pop in my mouth!  I don’t know what Timbits are but you had me at “glazed apple fritter”

I just skimmed this thread so sorry if this info is being repeated.  But from my experence cakepops are extra cake (usually left over from carved cakes), rolled in a ball with the help of icing, covered in chocolate. 

With the cakepop pans you eliminate the icing.  Personally not a fan, but for you, those would be much better to freeze completely done well in advance.

Also a hint, when you buy your cakeball pans, it’s like a waffle iron with removable pans.  I have seen it reccomended that you buy two if not three sets of pans (if they are reasonable priced) and this way you always have cakepops baking.  Apparently they only take a few minutes, but since they are so small you have to make a lot.  So with a few sets of pans you can have one pan cooling, one pan baking and one pan filled ready to go in next.  It’s just a huge time saver.

Cakecentral is a wonderful place for you to get more info on cakepops and freezing/defrosting is always being discussed on those boards.

I think this is a great idea….they certainly were all over the place this Christmas.  

Have fun!

Ooohhh, I’ve been in africa for school for the past 3 years, and now I’m really craving timbits. *cry*

 

I’m not a fan of cake pops in general, but I would be thrilled to find timbits at a wedding.

I say make them!  You can make the balls and stick the sticks in them and freeze them.  Then you can decorate and bag them a couple days in advance.

I love the idea, but are you having a regular wedding cake too? That’s a lot of cake!

@MrsGolden2Bee: I think the timbits are a fabulous idea.  We gave a little box with a couple inside as favours (also a humourous nod to the fact that Darling Husband is a cop), and people loved them.  I think most got eaten before dinner was even served, and I know for me, taking off the stress that if I DON’T finish umpteen million cake balls, I can just top up with timbits would be a big relief.

I think “mini sweets” bar in general is  fantastic idea!  I’m a total sucker for baked goods, and a cute setup could look awesome.
