AHi. I've been asked to make cake pops for a birthday, but I can't seem to find black candy melts, only red. The only available things are white candy melts, white chocolate, and chocolate. Can I tint either one of those three to make black? Thank you!
AYes, you can use black candy color and mix that in with dark chocolate candy melt to achieve black. Just make sure its an oil based color and not water based :)
you can get black cocoa powder too
Acan i use americolor if i can't find any oil based coloring?
Do you have a Michaels near you for balck candy melts? They usually have black at this time of year-before Holloween.
you can use powdered color
Aanother question. i see people using candy melts for ears, there are no black candy melts here, only red. can i use that or will the red be seen through?
APersonally, I just stick in the black candy melts after the cake pop is dipped in the red and black, I seem to have a problem with them melting if I dip it back into my chocolate. I don't see why you couldn't just cut out black fondant circles and attach those once dried and then dip into the chocolate.
Awill the fondant not melt?
AI wouldn't think so as long as the fondant has firmed up a little and the chocolate is not too hot
Athank you so much!
