To create cake pops, you need to start by making cake balls that you will later apply to lollipop sticks. The easiest way to make cake balls is to follow the directions on a box of cake mix. I usually deviate from the directions in one way, I use half the amount of oil. This helps create the right consistency for your cake balls. If you are not a fan of boxed cake mix, you can also bake a homemade cake (more power to you!).
Lovely instructable! Thank you for the many tips. :) (author)  anatroccolo1 year ago
Thanks, Ana. I hope you found some helpful cake pop tips!
The instructable was very helpful, the fact that I live in Italy and many of your sweet things are not available, like candy melts, will make everything a bit difficult, but I'm going to try and make some cake pops with what I can find in the shops. :) (author)  anatroccolo1 year ago
Ana, are you able to order from Amazon? That have everything you need. I have links to a lot of the supplies on my blog,
Yes, I can get things on amazon and I've been doing that, but you know what it feels like when you want to bake something and you haven't got the ingredients, you'd want to go to the shops, buy our stuff and run back home to get started, with online shopping you have to wait and by the time you got your stuff the inspiration might have gone. :D
I'll check your blog anyway, thank you! :) (author)  anatroccolo1 year ago
Yeah, I hear ya. Sometimes you just want to bake something on a whim and not plan ahead. You could just get white candy melts and candy coloring that way you can have those on hand to dye the candy melts the color you need.
That's a great tip!
When I can't find an ingredient I usually research and see if I can make it myself. I did so with cajun spices mix and other mixes, with lemon curd an many other things you won't find in Italy. Now it's time of candy melt! :D
