Easier way to coat cakepops?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Is there an easier way to coat cakepops without emtying a whole bag of candy melts into a bowl..


I have to make 24 cakepops that are different colors but I have found in the past I end up throwing out the leftover candy melts as it is a pain in the butt to wait for them to solidify in a bowl and then TRY and scrape it out to save...

There has to be an easier way.... icon_rolleyes.gif any tips?

Scrape it out while still liquid onto a bit of wax paper or silicone mat and throw it in the freezer for about 30min. Then pop it off the wax paper, put it in a baggie and store it until next time. You can let it come to room temp before putting in a baggie if you prefer, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

I use those litte plastic bowls...strain it inot one of those and when it sets I put on the lid. It can easily be popped back out to remelt. I strain because I always have som crumbs that fall in.

I line a small custard bowl with wax paper and pour the leftovers in it, wait for it to harden or pop it in the frig, then store it in a ziplock :)  No mess and no waste!

you have enough coating material to fully dip the cake pop in yes?

 

your coating material needs to be the right temperature and both the cake pops and the coating need to be smooth --

 

smooth + smooth = smooth

 

how are you doing it?

my cookies are prettier than your cookies because this is the second time i substituted my opalescent sanding sugar when i ran out of sugar to make the batch ha!

I take a narrow and high smal bowl and melt the candy melts in it. It helps when i put a llittle bit of vegetable shortening to make it thin a little bit so it is easier to coat it :)

Ok, I'm Sorry, New To This whole thing. I am baking my cakes, putting frosting, mixing together and forming balls, i then put them in the freezer, for about 15 min. i take them back out dip the ends of sticks in chocolate and stick them in the balls. I then put them back in the freezer for about another 10 min, while i melt chocolate. I use the wilton melts. like wafers of chocolate. When choc is ready i take balls out of freezer and dip. The choc is really thick

Some people thin their Wilton Candy Melts with shortening.  I use vegetable oil.  Just add small amounts until the consistency is thin enough for you.

 

I've been reading that others have great success using Mercken's wafers, and they don't need to thin the Mercken's at all.  

 

Happy dipping! :)
