Many brands if them will melt and dip quite well.

If you live in a warm, humid climate, it is probably safest to store them in your refrigerator overnight. Take them out a while before serving so they come to room temperature.

I have experimented a lot with the ratio of icing to cake in order to find a pleasing consistency inside. You want it just moist enough to hold it’s shape when you roll the balls but not so moist that they are unpleasant.

Or any major store with a baking aisle should carry them. I don’t think toothpicks will work unfortunately.

I think you can freeze the cake balls. When you are ready to dip them, let them almost that’s so they are still nice and firm. This will help them hold their shape and stay on the stick during the dipping process.

Cake pops made with a ready made frosting can be stored in an airtight container on the counter. If you wrap them individually in treat bags tied with ribbon, they can stand in styrofoam block until ready to serve.

Cake pops made with homemade ingredients that are perishable, such as cream cheese frosting, should be stored in the refrigerator, either in an airtight container or wrapped in treat bags.

Cake pops will last several days and can be made a few days before an event. The finished pops can be stored in the freezer if you need to make them further in advance.

Do you think I can freeze the cake balls until I dip them in chocolate? Should I unfreeze them before or just dip them frozen?
I would like to prepare them in advance and I don’t want them to go bad!
Thanks! :)

Question, I finished the dipping of the pops last night and left them in room temp (about 68-70degrees indoor) when I woke up this morning to finally taste them and see how the chocolate coating would breakup when you bite into it, I noticed there is a moist coating in between the cake pop surface inside and the candy coating. Dry on the outside though. Its only when biting into the cake pop when you notice it moist in between. Is that normal?

Perhaps start with 2 pounds just to be safe? That should be plenty. Good luck!

You mentioned one 9X13″ cake could make roughly 48 cake pops, how many lbs of candy melts might it take to cover them? (I will order the melts you suggested) Thank you in advance!!

I’m staying in a very humid country.

Thank you.

Did you warm the frosting to make it dipping consistency? Did it dry firm like the melted chocolate does? How did it taste?

I feature this on my blog’s one month birthday post, in a list of desserts I want to try!

I recently bought a cake pop mold from Keetzen in Amazon and found it easier to use. I think it’s healthier (?) coz it’s not as packed so you’re not eating as much cake as you’d think. :)
I bought the pink one and my daughter loves it! they have blue too :D

The whole Idea is to get the cake to stick together to keep its ball form. It doesn’t matter what type of icing you use, as long as it doesn’t crumble apart when you try to make it into a ball. (I’m sorry if I sounded like a jerk in te beginning of the comment. No hard feelings)?
p.s. Happy Baking!

This is probably one of the best tutorials I have ever come across, but I noticed in one of your replies you said you’ve used white chocolate before. Would any white choc. work? (ex: melted Hershey’s or other brands of that sort) or is there one you can buy at a local grocery store that’s fairly cheap?
