Have you been asked to make dessert for a large special event? If that’s the case, why not whip up a batch of adorable cake pops? With the right tools, they are easy to make. With that said, here’s a look at how to bake cake pops for 60 people:
In order to bake 60 cake pops, you’ll need to obtain the following items.
- 1 box Cake pop mix (18 ounces, your choice)
- Candy melts (flavor of your choice)
- Nordicware Cake Pops Baking Pan
- Cuisinox Elite Double Boiler Insert
- Edible decorations (your choice)
- Nordicware Cake Pop Sticks
- 1 cup Flour (all-purpose)
- 1 block Florist’s foam
- Cuisinox Dutch Oven
- 1 can Shortening
- 1 Mixing bowl
Begin by making the cake pop batter of your choice. Next, grease and lightly flour the Nordicware Cake Pops Baking Pan. Continue by filling the bottom cake pan cups completely. Otherwise, you’ll end up with lopsided looking pops. Next, add the top pan and bake the cake pops according to the instructions given on the box. In most instances, the pops will be in the oven for less than 20 minutes.
When they are finished baking, remove the cake pops baking pans from the oven. Just make sure that you don’t separate the cake pans from one another in the process. Proceed by placing the entire cake pop pan ensemble somewhere to cool. We’d suggest allowing at least a half hour of cooling time. It is important to note that if you try to remove the top pan before the balls are cooled completely, they are likely to break apart.
While the cake pops are cooling, turn your attention towards the candy melts. First, set-up a double boiler onto the stove. Then place your candy melts into the double boiler. Once the candy starts to melt, slowly add teaspoons of shortening into the boiler until the mixture develops a thin consistency.
After the cake has cooled, gently remove the balls from the pan. Continue the process by carefully removing any excess cake from the balls with the aid of a sharp knife. Next, use one cake pop stick to make a hole into the bottom of each cake ball.
From there, insert the bottom of each stick into the candy mixture and then back into the cake ball. Proceed by letting the balls sit for 5 minutes. Doing so should help to keep the sticks into place. When you are ready, dip the cake balls, one by one, into the candy coating. Once that’s done, decorate them as desired and let them harden. The easiest way to let them harden is to stick the pops, stick side down, into a hunk of florist foam.
