Why Are My Cake Pops Cracking?
If you find that your cake pops are cracking, it is usually due to intense temperature changes. This is is caused if you have frozen the cake pops before placing it in the hot candy. To avoid cracking, let the cake ball mixture come to room temperature before dipping them in the warm chocolate. Also, once you have dipped the cake pops, let them sit for about 5 minutes at room temperature before placing them in the fridge to all them to finish setting. These little steps will help prevent the cake pops from cracking.
Can You Freeze Cake Pops?
Once you have made the cake pops, if you want to have them last longer, you can freeze them. Place the cake pops on a plate in the freezer for 1 hour. Once frozen, you can place the Cauldron cake pops in a freezer bag or reusable container. The frozen cake pops will last up to 6 weeks in the freezer. Be sure to thaw the cake pops before serving.
These fun cake pops are pretty easy to make and you can use the same technique if you are making the Goldfish Bowl Cake Pops. You can pick up all the supplies at your local craft store or Wal-Mart. I’d suggest getting the Wilton bag of vibrant green disks because they will be easier to work with rather than coloring your own candy melts.

- Place the rolled cake balls into the fridge for 30 minutes depending on how soft your cake balls were. Do not place them into the freezer to speed things along. Getting the cake pops too cold will lead to cracked cake pops.
