what are funky cake pops? How did you make them? Was it icing or fondant or chocolate that melted? What kind of temp/room/environment were they sitting in? How long were they sitting out? Were they wrapped in plastic bags, or saran or just exposed?

Make dummies to use for your displays. Make them out of plaster of paris or something like that and paint/decorate. Keep the real things in a cooler.

i made them out of clay. it was the chocoalte on the outside that started to melt.

And they were exposed, do you think if i packaged them it would help?

My sister was saying to try hairspray?

I wouldn't put chocolate on them due to the heat. Use some paint that looks like chocolate.

I work with someone that makes chocolates and she has dummie displays that look just like chocolate but it's all fake.

Wish I could answer that one. You will have to experiment. Maybe someone else on here will have the answer.

I work in a commerical kitchen and the person I speak of does chocolates but I've never seen "how" it's done, I just know it's all fake.
