Pumpkin Raisin Bread Pops

Heard of cake pops? Well, the first thing that came to my mind about cake pop is to bake a cake from scratch, mash up & shape the cake crumbs into balls.  After which they will be ‘dress up’ with chocolates & sprinkles etc. Yup, it’s such a hassle, isn’t it? Fear no more if you had this Mastrad cupcake pops kit on hand! This versatile silicon mould allows you to get creative with your bakes, be it cake pops, tarts, chocolates etc. 

Not convince? Well, let me present to you my first bake using the cupcake pops kit ~ Bread Pops! These bread pops are ideal for parties. Kids & adults will love them as they are bite size.
