I thought it was a genius idea to dry my cake pops on my drying rack. But now I can't get them off without the bottoms ripping off. Anyone know what to do or have any suggestions? I need these for tomorrow.

Maybe try steaming them a bit. Bring the kettle or a pot of water to a boil, put on some oven mitts and pass the rack quickly over the steam a couple of times. Give a try to release them. That's all I can come up with.

Hmm. put the rack on a heating pad or apply heat just to the bottom in some way. Maybe a hair dryer? I wouldn't try steam because I'd be concerned the water would spot the chocolate. Other than that, you can cut them off the rack and redip them.

I forget to mention that I use a cooling rack covered in wax paper. I dip them with a toothpick and poke the toothpick into the waxed paper them pull it out from underneath the rack. So, you were almost there with your method. icon_smile.gif

That's a great idea! I'll try that next time. Thanks for the suggestions. I ended up chilling them and popping them off. There were lines without chocolate on the bottoms but they were just for snacks at work. And I was trying out my Babycakes. And I love it!
