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 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?

Cracking is always an issue with cake pops. But the chocolate i recommend in this post melts quite thin and does not feel steaming hot. It feels room temperature or cool but maintains its thin consistency. So I don’t think there is a drastic temperature change when you take the cake ball from the fridge to the dipping chocolate. I’ve also noticed I experience more cracking when I color my chocolate with the candy colors than when I work with plain white chocolate (practically no cracks at all!) If you have a few cracks in your batch, they will appear pretty quickly. Just re-dip those pops at the end of the process and it will hide the cracks. Unfortunately, I don’t think anyone has come up with a full proof solution for cracks :)

Yes you can dip them the same day. If you do not have time to let them firm up in the fridge overnight, just pop them in the freezer for 15 minutes while you melt your dipping chocolate. Then you can take them out one at a time as you dip them, If you notice they are getting too cold on the bottom (starting to freeze) transfer them to the fridge and pull them from there one by one to dip them. I’m glad you asked because this is a good way to get the right firmness!

I saw another tutorial where they said after rolling the balls you should put them in the freezer for 15 minutes. Then place them in the refrigerator while you melt the chocolate. And then take one out at a time from the refrigerator to dip them. Would this be the same as refrigerating them overnight if I want to make them and dip them the same day?

You don’t have to freeze the cake unless you are breaking up the steps to make the process easier. If you decide to bake well in advance of making the pops, freezing is a good option. You can let the cake cool for an hour before wrapping and freezing it. You can also wrap it while still warm. This traps the moisture in the cake. Let it thAw for three hours at room temp before crumbling. Good luck!

I will be making cake pops for Thanksgiving. How long should I wait for the cake to cool before crumbling the cake? If I place it in the freezer how long after I take it out of the oven for it to be put into the freezer and how long would I need to freeze it and how long to thaw?

I usually buy a 5 pound bag and it lasts through several large projects. I’d guess one pound would make 3 or 4 dozen cake pops.
