So I just used my new babycakes cakepop machine,. I had no problem with the machine. My problem was decorating the cake balls.I tried dipping them in the chocolate and it came out in globs. I tried spooning the melts on and they still didn't come out smooth. What's the best way to cover these?

Are you using candy melts or chocolate? I have added shortening to the chocolate and/or candy melts to make it smoother... or maybe you aren't heating the chocolate long enough?
hope that helps

I just play around with it... I'm guessing a tsp for 1/2 a bag of melts.

I use Paramount Crystals to thin and smooth melted coatings. You can buy them at cake decorating stores. I think they are made of shortening, but work well, esp. with white and colors, which never seem to melt as well as regular chocolate. Hope this helps..
