- My attempt at making egg shaped pops turned into triangular shaped pops. Not a great start.
- I messed up melting the chocolate every other time. I seriously did nothing different. One time, it melted perfectly, and the next, it didn't. Needless to say, I need to go buy yet another bag of candy melts for the last half of the cake pops. Cruddy.
- After dipping the pops, I placed them in my homemade "coke carton"pop holder (another frustrating step because I had to poke all the holes to hold the pops and force the sticks through). So they are all hanging out in different angles.
- I also put them in the freezer to help them set faster. I left them in there TOO long. I pulled them out and they started to sweat. And then the entire surface of the pop was sticky so decorating with sugar made it so hard to get stripes. I had a couple pops that I didn't place in the freezer and they were SIGNIFICANTLY easier to decorate (pictured above).
I am hoping the last half of the pops will be less frustrating. That the chocolate will melt properly. That I won't want to throw them in the trash.
I probably won't be doing these again! My time has been well spent slaving over these. Gah. Check out the Bakerella blog. She is an amazing Cake Popper.
