Hey guys, I have been asked to make some cake pops for a birthday party. I have never done these before. I searched on here and didn't see any tutorials. Anyone know of a good site or thread on here with instructions?

I think I get the basic gist of it. I'm a little worried about the candy melt coating not tasting all that great. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You can add flavored oils to the candy melts. It made a big difference in the flavor. Also Jen just posted on another thread that she uses real chocolate for her coating. I haven't tried it but she recommended
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter

I plan on trying that next. If you use Wilton candy melts you have to melt a decent amount of shortening in with the melts to get it the right consistencyicon_smile.gif

Google bakerella. She is the cake pop queenicon_smile.gif
