If you have ever tried making cakepops and it all went wrong, do not give up yet. May be the chocolate melted before you dipped the cakes, or the sticks feel out of place after you’ve finished cake decorating. It could be that, they all disappointingly fell apart once you made the slightest motion. Well, good news is, if you keep on reading, then making cakepops will not have to be such a mess the next time.
If you want to have chocolate or any other type of icing to stick together nicely, keep the cake balls in the fridge and allow them to cool nicely before dipping them on the chocolate. In fact, it would be better to allow the cakes to cool overnight after baking before you ice them.
For a nice stick, give the stick a nice chocolate deep before sticking it into the cake ball. You may also want to make smaller balls since they carry less weight which can be supported nicely using the stick. In fact, you can use toothpicks if the cakepops are really small. Put on a nice decoration and make them your small bundles of sweetness and fun.
Candy melts are great when making cakepops. Also, make sure that you put on any decorations before the chocolate melts. Decorations like sprinkles stick nicely when the chocolate is still warm. However, do not overheat the chocolate. Overheating the chocolate only makes it heavy and thick. This means that dipping the cakepops would be a big mess. Some of them may end up breaking up inside the chocolate and you would not like the scene. A little butter can help smooth out the chocolate before dipping the cake balls.
Decorating should be the easiest and most enjoyable moment of baking. Cakepops are small meaning that they don’t require too much decoration. However, feel free to include the colors and styles that you love as you decorate the cakepops. There is no harm in making faces of cartoon characters on the cakepops. These would make them really appealing to children especially if they are being made as a snack on their birthday. Look for cake pop decorations and designs that go well with the theme of the occasion. For instance, if it is during Easter, cake pops that resemble the Easter eggs would be a great idea. Whatever the case, make sure you have lots of fun when decorating cake pops.
