7 Easy Steps On How To Create Tasty Cake Pops

Cake pops are all the rage especially for small parties like baby showers and bridal showers. They are the perfect size for any sweet lover that may be looking for a light treat. Plus, you can have a variety of flavors at your party so all your guests can multiple choices!

At Fate Cakes we cater our variety of cake pop flavors to baby showers, bridal showers, weddings and many more parties all across Columbus, Ohio; therefore, we know what we’re doing when it comes to cake pops. With all this pop frenzy, we have created a simple checklist to follow in order to make and create tasty and decorative cake pops.

Our 7 Tips

  1. Cool and Shave Down – After baking your cake, let cool completely, before taking it out of the pan and “shredding” it into small pieces.

  2. Roll and Shape – Once the cake is fully cooled and you have shaved it down, add a “binding” ingredient like sour cream or cream cheese. This will allow the cake to be easier to mold into your shape or a traditional ball

  3. Stick It – After you have rolled and shaped your pop, apply melted chocolate melts on the tip of your lollipop stick before placing it into your ball or shape. This will allow the cake to adhere better to the stick as the chocolate melts

  4. Cool ‘Em –  Allow the pops to cool in the refrigerator or freezer for a short period. Make sure your pop has not completely cooled or froze. The reasoning is if the pop is too cool, your icing will crack as it cools after you have rolled the pop in a variety of candy melt flavors and colors.

  5. Heat Chocolate – While your pops are cooling, heat the chocolate melts in a microwave 15-30 seconds at a time. As the chocolate starts to melt, check it more often as it tends to burn and crystallize which will ruin the chocolate. If  if your sugar starts to crystallize but does not burn, add some oil to allow the chocolate to become more liquid.

  6. Roll and Coat – After taking the pops out of the refrigerator or freezer, roll the pops in your melted chocolate. You can either tap or twirl the pops to get access chocolate off the the pops.

  7. Double Dip – This is the only time you’re allowed to double dip! Make sure to apply this step to allow for a smoother surface on each pop

Now that you’ve coated your pops you can either decorate with your favorite sprinkles or let them cool and then drizzle them in a different colored melted chocolate. For a little extra flair don’t forget to wrap each pop in their individual bags and add a themed ribbon or ti to incorporate your baby shower, wedding or bridal shower theme and colors.
