Super easy to follow and I’m excited to see if I can pull this off! The only question I have is how do you go about unfreezing the cakes when you want to make more cake pops? Just put them in the fridge? Can they be store in the fridge if you intend on making more cake pops the next day?

I mixed the icing into the crumbled cake and it turned out all goopy. Nothing like the photo.

You will have to judge how long those work sessions may take based on the number of cake pops you plan to make :)

That is the best consistency for dipping! Good luck :)

You have to try and control the temperature of all the components so there are no drastic changes. I’ve had great luck with the chocoley.com chocolate that I use in the tutorial. Also, if they crack you can re-dip them which hides the cracks. Don’t give up. Just keep trying :)

Am thinking about making the cake balls ahead of time at home and freezing them. Then I could travel with the frozen, plain balls of cake across the state, and put the sticks in and decorate them when I arrive at destination for holidays! Have you tried freezing the cakeballs and decorating them at a later date?

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.
