Cake pops are one of those bakes that you can hardly have some rules to keep you restricted on what you can and cant do. In fact, when decorating cakepops, you can do it any method you want but still achieve the best results. The next time you are set to start baking have some of the tips below with you.
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 is the fun part but when it comes to cake pops. However, it has much more than just icing and putting the sprinklers on top. It requires some creativity here and there. If you love your cakepops with cartoon characters, then do not hesitate to decorate them that way. In fact, these types of cakepops would appeal to young children on their birthdays. If you have an adult guest, go for baking different cakepops that go well with the theme of the occasion. For instance, cakepops that resemble the Easter bunny eggs are great during Easter. Carry on with the decorations you like and do not be afraid to be creative and imaginative enough.
