Topic: cake pop help
sweettoothmaria 05/12/2012 10:12 AM
Hi! I'm new to cake decorating...i tried making my first cake pops from the leftover cake i made for my daughter's birthday. They turned out fine except that after i dipped them in the candy melts I noticed that oil seems to drip from some of the pops...

This happened to me the first time too.
I've realized that if you cook your cake with a bit less oil than is called for, this is less likely to happen.
But, since they were cake scraps, it was pretty unavoidable.
Hope this helps

When using left over cake - or a cake that someone else made - I find that if you let it stand out in the open air for a day and then mix and roll it you won't have the oil problem as bad.

I do agree with Kelly Girl - I don't use near the amount of oil that most recipes call for. As a rule I will use only 2-4 tablespoons vs the 1/2 to 3/4 cup that some recipes call for.
