We have had record breaking temps here in Houston the last week, 100's. Well on Friday night is the Relay for Life and I've volunteered to do a cake pop bouquet for the silent auction. I got a pink cancer fighting mug and was going to wrap the pops indivually and put them in styrofoam in the mug. .....BUT I got to thinking....will they melt while sitting out like that....granted it's in the evening but it will still be about 85 degrees once the sun sets.
I was thinking that maybe after I dip them in the chocolate ..then maybe dip them in royal icing...kind of making a candy coating....
Do y'all think that will work?
Maybe freeze them before setting them out? I don't think there's any way to avoid the melting issue. Also, if you freeze them and leave them out in the sun you may have an issue with them sweating.
Take some of what you are coating them in and stick it outside this evening in a bowl and see if it holds up to the temps. Or if you have any currently done, try it out.
I think if kept cool before hand and kept out of the direct sun they shouldn't be drippy melting, but they may be a little softer.
thanks for the tips. I did think of the sweating issue. I guess tomorrow I will set a couple outside and see how long they last
For the tip about freezing them, just know they will most likely crack if you freeze them already diped in chocolate. So, I wouldnt do that but refrigerating them is fine. I just know that from experience.
