decorating cake pops

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi every one, thanks in advance for reading my post and helping me. My family and customers LOVE cake balls. I have gotten pretty good at the dipping part they now come out smooth and with no explosions. ( i used to get cake pooping thru) I see others cake balls and they are so cute and decorated so nice, mine are very simple.My question is, How? I use a different color candy melt to decorate with and can't use a decorator tip because it gets hard in the tip and as we know I can't put it under water to warm back up. How do I decorate them with different colors? Do I use something other than candy melt, maybe royal icing?

Hey there...I use the squeeze bottles for decorating the pops/balls. Easy to use, and you can reheat chocolate in microwave to keep liquid. I just take top off when it starts to cool, run under hot water and dislodge and hardened chocolate with a toothpick.

I use plastic baggies and snip a corner off. If it starts to get thick, i just pop it in the microwave! HTH

I use royal icing. Works fine for me, but I don't refrigerate. If I need to I make sure the royal gets a good few hours to completely dry first to prevent bleeding. Obviously the candy melt coating needs to be completely dry before using royal, or the grease will break it down. Hth!
