The best part was the mother who had them at her daughter's party saw I made cakes when she had dropped her daughter off at my girl's party the month before. She asked if I did pops and I said that I could, but that pops aren't always popular, it's best to have a small cake as well, and gave her my pricing. It was $1.75 a pop.

She never contacted me, and when I went to drop my daughter off at her party, there was about 150 people there, many of them adult men, so I asked to stay with her, and just sat in the corner all afternoon, lol. (Yeah, im a freak, but she's a gorgeous, tiny 8 year old and I can't live without her.) so the cake pops come out after a while and they are in two bakery boxes from Hobby Lobby, just piled all over each other. The coating is as lumpy as the bearded lady's thighs, and GIANT! They didn't go over well, so at the end of the party I asked to taste one, and they were sickening! I asked where she got them, and the mom says it was from some lady she works with, who just does them out of her home, (in a state where it is illegal). I asked how much she paid for them, and 5 big boxes of them cost her $20, lol! She gave me her card, and I considered siccing the health department on her, but the pops were so pathetic, I didn't have the heart. They had to cost her at least $20 to make, and they all got thrown away.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I made 400 for a wedding, boy I didn't know what I got myself into. Because of the cracking from freezing them, I had to double coat them. It took me and my daughter, who got a fast tutorial, a week from start to finish. From baking, rolling, and dipping in the last two days. I am pretty sure I lost money on those.

I have been in cake pip hell several times but its all in the planning oozing means you compressed them to much. That machine is awful I use Susan cardberry method with Oreos and cream cheese once you understand the co sistency you will be able to switch it to cakes not to dry not to gooey the most important us keep the designs and colors limited to no more than 3. It takes at least .3 days to complete start to finish and decorated and chocolate dip matters candy melts are to thick use merkens
