Everyone loves the flavor of my cake balls/pops but I want to make them look pretty too. This past week I made a batch of strawberry (50+ balls) and a batch of lemon (50+ balls) for a baby shower at school. I wanted to add a decorative smattering of spinkles to make them festive but I couldn't get it to work. The sprinkles just clumped up and then pulled the chocolate off of the ball. I quit trying after a few because I couldn't afford to waste anymore cake balls. How do you get them to stick if you don't sprinkle when the chocolate is wet? TIA
You do have to sprinkle before the choc sets up.
Ditto to what Leash_s says..You have to coat with sprinkles before the chocolate hardens so you have to work quickly...
If you've ever sprinkled donuts, I do it sort of like that. Have a container of chocolate next to a container of sprinkles. Dip in the chocolate and then quickly roll through the sprinkles. Only time I seem to run into trouble is if I don't have enough sprinkles in the container - shouldn't be pushing up against the edges or trying to search around the container to grab the sprinkles, just a quick roll through.
