Decorating Pops Basics
All our pops designs are different, but most share a few elementary techniques. Before you start decorating, get to know these common pops practices.
Inserting a stick
To keep your pop stuck on the stick, follow these easy steps. Having a secure pop helps make decorating (and eating)
Give your pops a dunk in Wilton Candy Melts! Dipping is a great way to seal in the flavor and moistness of the cake and creates a great surface for toppings and decorations.
Covering with sprinkles
For quick party pops, after you dip in candy, do a second dip in Wilton Sprinkles! Whether you use nonpareils, jimmies or colored sugars, you’ll have an instant colorful treat everyone will love.
Pouring Thinned Icing or Candy Melts over Pops
Another easy way to give your pops a smooth surface for decorating — pour on.
