I made my first attempt at cake pops and the instructions seemed easy enough; however, not so if you run into issues. The candy melts don’t often melt so that it “drips” when you dunk the cake into it. How do you get that affect? I noticed that certain colors are thicker than others. Also, the drying time from the time you dunk and decorate pretty much needs to be immediate. Any suggestions?
You know that there are other recipes online for icing right? just search up a recipe on Google or something. The whole Idea is to get the cake to stick together to keep its ball form. It doesn’t matter what type of icing you use, as long as it doesn’t crumble apart when you try to make it into a ball. (I’m sorry if I sounded like a jerk in te beginning of the comment. No hard feelings)?
Great tips! Thanks. I saw another tutorial where they said after rolling the balls you should put them in the freezer for 15 minutes. Then place them in the refrigerator while you melt the chocolate. And then take one out at a time from the refrigerator to dip them. Would this be the same as refrigerating them overnight if I want to make them and dip them the same day?

I used melted chocolate on top of my cake pops but it's cracking... Sometimes overheating the chocolate before dipping causes the chocolate to crack from the heat. And freezing your cake pops for too long makes the chocolate to crack from the cold. Once the chocolate on the cake pops are hard from freezing immediately remove them. Don't melt your chocolate for too long as well, once the chocolate is a liquid it's done.
