Hi. Ok so 1. Awesome tutorial. Following your suggestions step by step. However a couple of questions. 1. Do you place them in the refrigerator or the freezer. Is there drastic difference? 2. I love that bowl I feel like that’s the only way to melt without tantrums. What is it called or when can u get it. I Raw ceramic ones ? Idk what they are called but they are not working the magic. I did the double boiler and even then it wasn’t as liquid as it should

Feel free to change up the cake, frosting and coating. Red velvet cake, with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate coconut coating is really good!
Yes, that’s true to some extent. Cracking is always an issue with cake pops. But the chocolate i recommend in this post melts quite thin and does not feel steaming hot. It feels room temperature or cool but maintains its thin consistency. So I don’t think there is a drastic temperature change when you take the cake ball from the fridge to the dipping chocolate. I’ve also noticed I experience more cracking when I color my chocolate with the candy colors than when I work with plain white chocolate (practically no cracks at all!) If you have a few cracks in your batch, they will appear pretty quickly. Just re-dip those pops at the end of the process and it will hide the cracks. Unfortunately, I don’t think anyone has come up with a full proof solution for cracks 🙂
Prepare a boxed cake mix as directed on the box. Let the cake cool completely. Wash your hands. Next, crumble the cake into fine crumbs with your hands in a large bowl. Mix in about 1/3 cup of icing (I used store bought milk chocolate) with your hands. The mixture should be dense but not gooey. Gooey cake balls gross me out. Grab a cookie scoop (I used my 1.5 T scoop, which I LOVE). (Remember, everyone needs a cookie scoop, or 3.) Then, scoop out the mixture, packing the cake mixture into the scoop as you scoop it (I smushed the open side of the cookie scoop against the inside of the bowl). Smush the mixture in your hand to pack it tightly into a ball. Roll it into a nicely shaped ball. Roll the remaining mixture into balls (my cake mix made 18 balls).

This was the best tutorial.. mine came out great on the first try.. I broke up the steps as indicated and put my rolled balls in the freezer over night.. I used bark chocolate which is easier to find and less expensive..I took them out the freezer and maybe they were at room temperature is why they did not crack.. looked great and taste even better!!
Keep on with this process until you are all the way finished. Then (if you want) melt some white chocolate. Put it into a plastic bag and cut a hole at the corner. Decorate each cake pop using the melted white chocolate in the way you want. This step is optional but provides a great opportunity to write a person's name, the name of a sports team and to draw images, patterns or symbols.
