What bags are you guys using for cake pops? I buy the 1/4 pound clear bags by the thousand, so I have a lot of those. I use them for my cookies and for candy buffets. The "chocolate spoon" bags aren't big enough for the cake pops, but I'd like something shorter than the one I'm using.

Thanks for asking this question! I had the same issue when I made cake pops for the first time last week. I ended up cutting off 1.5" off of my cookie bags (3.75" x 5.75") to make it work.

2"x3" does sound like the right size.

I do cookies, so I use a larger size, but if i wanted to know what size to buy, i would cut down one of my larger bags to the 2x3 or 2x4 size and see if i liked the way the pop fit in, then go from there.

Is it better to use the flat bags or gusseted? Does anyone use gusseted?

I ordered the 2X3 bags from uline & they seem like they are too small. I was looking online & different sites showed different sizes... Would 4X5 be too big? I know I can use the other ones if I make smaller cake balls.... However, I'll be getting my cake pop roller in soon & those seem a lot bigger. Even the young lady at the Event I went to her cake balls were bigger. Any other hint on what size I should order

I ordered a 2.5" X 4" bag from my supplier. They're not in yet, but should be here soon. We'll see if they work.

I use a 3x4.5" bag and they work great with a little room on either side. 2x3 was way too small and frustrating when you're trying to put the bags on
