  • For a cake on a stick, a biscuit is traditionally used: chocolate or white.
  • Break the biscuit into pieces and leave to dry. Then crumble it.
  • You can crumble a biscuit for cake pops at home into small crumbs, like bread crumbs. But then you need more cream, which serves as a pastry glue that holds the pieces together.
  • The cream is suitable for butter, chocolate and vanilla. But you can also fasten the biscuits with fruit jam: orange, apricot, strawberry.
  • When shaping the cake on a stick, give it a perfectly even shape without cracks. The smoother the ball, the better the glaze will fit. At the same time, remember that on cold cake pops, the icing hardens too quickly, so it needs to be quickly smoothed.
  • The icing for cake pops is made from milk, black or white chocolate. It is based on milk, cream, butter and powdered sugar. Some confectioners "cover" the delicacy with colored mastic.
  • For decoration, use Easter powder, chocolate chips, marzipan figurines, multi-colored confectionery powder, coconut, crushed nuts.
  • Sticks are used wood or plastic. The main thing is that they do not have any sharp ends.
  • Be sure to chill the biscuit balls in the refrigerator before glazing. You can freeze them, but then give time to move away so that the stick enters the product. Otherwise, the balls will fall off the stick and leave crumbs in the glaze.
  • Put ready-made popcakes in the refrigerator for cooling on a stand. To do this, you can use polystyrene, bread, a container with a free-flowing mixture …
