I've made cake pops in the past and dipped them using Wilton Candy Melts, but it seems that they never come out shiny. They always dry with a matte, almost gray looking colour. icon_sad.gif
Any suggestions? Am I doing something wrong?

Gray color could be age related to the melts. There are other brands out there you could try.

I personally have not had this problem, but the only time I have used Wilton is when I wanted a particular color for a chocolate transfer.

The ones you are seeing which are super smooth are usually done with a chocolate tempering machine which swirls the chocolate constantly and giving a smooth shiny finish...
