How do I cover cake pops in candy melts? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
I used some orange Wilton candy melts for pumpkin cakepops today, they are very, very thick. I had to add a lot of Trex ( vegetable fat) to make it easier, they tasted OK. Like jillyscakes I will invest in some powdered chocolate colours from now on.

add paramount crystals and if make sure your pops are not really cold otherwise they will crack once dipped in candy melts. another reason they might crack is because they are rolled too tight. HTH

Thank You so much for asking this question! (or I'm glad I saw it before I posted the same question) I just got done watching a few youtube videos and I can't wait to try the candy melts with some crisco and get that great finished look!

My advice to you is to not use wilton candy melts! I have learned over the year that I have been doing cake bites and cake pops, that wilton melts are way too thick to work with. I use candy coating from either Meijer's or Kroger. They are A MILLION times easier to work with. If you absolutely have to work with Wilton brand, then to make it as smooth as possible I mix a little vegetable oil to make it smooth. Hope this helps!

I use a fountain ready/fondue chocolate melt from Chocomaker.  You can get it in 2 lb. bags at Hobby Lobby or The Flower Factory or online.  It melts down so smooth and liquidy and is so easy for dipping.  And the cake pop comes out looking so smooth when dry.

Good luck to you!
