Question by Lucie from Biasca

Why is it that my cake pops crack when the Candy Melts begin to cool and harden?



Hello Lucie!

If your candy melts crack after they’ve dried, I am pretty sure your cake balls were way too cold before you dipped them. Of course you need to let your cake balls firm up in the refrigerator or freezer, but if you placed them in the freezer, make sure to take them out and let them rest on your counter for at least 15 minutes to warm up and expand a little.

If your cake balls are too cold when you coat them, they expand while warming up and this is why they cause cracks.
