What is the secret to dipping cake pops?

Making cake pops has become increasingly popular in recent years, and the key to a perfect cake pop lies in the dipping process. The secret is in the consistency of the melting chocolate or candy coating.

It’s essential to melt the chocolate or candy coating in the microwave or on a stove using a double boiler, ensuring the mixture is smooth and easy to work with.

Once the cake balls are cooled and the chocolate or candy coating is melted, ensure the coating is immersed in the mixture correctly.

You may use a cake pop stand or a toothpick to make the dipping process smoother.

Follow these guidelines, and you’ll have perfectly coated cake pops in no time.

How do I store cake pops?

Cake pops are a delightful treat that is both attractive and delicious, but storing them correctly is necessary for preserving their flavor and appeal.

To keep them fresh, the key is to avoid exposing them to air, moisture, and heat, which can cause them to become stale, mushy, or discolored. Ideally, cake pops should be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

To prevent them from sticking together, place them in a single layer on parchment or wax paper and separate them with a small piece of paper.

Following these simple guidelines, you can keep your cake pops fresh and mouth-watering for several days.

This Pink Cake Pops Recipe is so much fun to make and eat! This dessert on a stick is a must!


  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups white granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup whole milk

Frosting Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tablespoons milk

Pink Coating Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups pink candy melts
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • White sprinkles


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the salt and butter with a hand mixer.
  3. Add the sugar and blend.
  4. Add 2 eggs along with the vanilla and almond extract. Mix the rest of the wet ingredients.
  5. Pour in the baking powder and the flour and blend until smooth.
  6. Pour the milk over the top of the batter and use a spatula to slowly fold until smooth. This should thin out the batter as well.
  7. Pour the batter into a baking pan (be sure to spray with nonstick spray first) and place in the oven. Bake for 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  8. As the cake is baking, grab a clean bowl and add the powdered sugar and butter. Blend using a hand mixer. (The mixture will look crumbly)
  9. Add the vanilla extract and milk to the bowl and blend until it is creamy. Set aside.
  10. Once the cake is out of the oven, let it cool for 20 minutes. Then crumble it in a bowl, using your hands to break it into small pieces. (Make sure that the cake is cool!)
  11. Add the frosting to the cake pieces and blend with a fork.
  12. Use a 1-inch scoop scoop a ball of the dough and roll it in your clean hands to create a cake pop. Place the ball on parchment paper.
  13. Repeat until all the dough is used.
  14. Put the cake balls into the freezer for 15 minutes.
  15. While the cake balls are in the freezer, melt the pink melting chips in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.
  16. Take the cake balls out of the freezer and gather the needed supplies to make the cake pops.
  17. Dip each cake pop stick 1/4-inch into the pink melted chocolate, and then pace into the center of each cake ball, halfway through.
  18. Let the chocolate harden for a minute, then pick up the cake pop and dip it into the pink chocolate to coat it fully.
  19. Let the excess drip off by shaking it carefully.
  20. Put it into the cake pop stand and add the white sprinkles. Let the chocolate harden for 5 minutes, then enjoy!


You don't want to chocolate to be too hot when dipping the cake balls in it, or it will form cracks.
