  • How to bake cake pops. Perfect Bottomed Cake Pops - Step 1
    Step 1

    o you like to make Cake Pops with the stick up, but end up with a mess on the bottom? Or when you pick up the pop, you realize that there is no candy coating on the bottom "foot" of the pop?

    I call them "Candy Apple Style" Pops because they look like, well, Candy Apples.

    Well, here's a little trick that I like to do to ensure that.

    First, pre-stick the cake pops flat on the cookie sheet. It'll help to create a flatter bottom.

    Second, place candy disks down every 2 inches.

    Third, dip your pop, tap off the excess, then place it on top of the candy disk.

    Easy!

    The candy coating will ooze down to cover the disk and hide it. There will be a bit of an extra candy crunch at the bottom. They stand up straight. They have a flat bottom with no hole.

    Try it next time and they will look great on your dessert table!
