Cake Pops? Never Again.


See these cake pops? They were a horrible idea.

I watched a video, and decided "oh, hey, I can do that". So, with the leftovers from this rainbow cake, I decided to give it a go and the results were not fantastic to say the least.


I though I did everything right. I crushed up my cake...


...busted out the icing...


...mixed it all together...


...and froze, put a stick on, and then dipped my pops. This was the very best pop.


All the other ones? They're cracked, lumpy, and horrible.
I don't know what I did wrong but I know that the problem was in the candy melts. I used a microwave with a broken place (it doesn't spin) so it didn't really melt well. It seems overly thick and was really hard to "dip" because it wasn't thin enough.

I'll probably never try cake pops again. If I do, It'll be because I'm in an adventurous mood.

Any tips?
xoxo

  4. Kerr. I just made cake pops last weekend. I put the sticks in right after I formed each ball and put them on the cookie sheet. Then I only put them in the freezer for about an hour to an hour and a half (to prevent cracking from them being TOO cold). Then I melted the chocolate (you're right, it needs to be pretty thin), and then used the opposite type of chocolate (white/milk) to shrizzle on top. They turned out pretty good!
