What can I use instead of candy melts? The only substitute for candy melts would be chocolate. If you set out to make cake balls without candy melts, you will need to mix 1 tbsp vegetable oil for every 1 cup of chocolate chips.
If your cake pops are not round enough, you either used not enough frosting (cake ball won’t stick together) or way too much! Remember to keep the consistency like play dough, so definitely not too dry, or too thin. What a bummer, your cake pops fall apart because it seems that you are not using enough frosting.
I also love to use paper straws to spruce up my cake pops. While you can use them alone I like to slide them over my cake pop sticks so I can have the firmness of the stick and the look of the straw. You may need to trim your straws to the length of the stick with a pair of scissors.
Method 3 without using mould
Shape the cake mixture as a rectangular popsicle using hands. Dip the ice cream sticks in melted chocolate and insert them into the popsicle. Keep it in the fridge for 15 minutes till it is set. Then dip the popsicle in melted chocolate and allow it to dry.
You can get a similar consistency by melting together chocolate chips (or white chocolate chips if you don’t want a chocolate flavor) and shortening. 6 ounces of chocolate chips (or 5 ounces of white chocolate chips) and 1 tablespoon of shortening should be about right. Melt them gently, as you would the Wilton discs.
3 tablespoons unsweetened or Dutch-process cocoa powder + 3 tablespoons sugar + 1 tablespoon melted butter or shortening.
Solution: Too much icing makes cake pops mushy and gives the truffles a grainy texture. I don’t like them, so I substitute the frosting with a creamy smooth ganache to bind the cake crumble. The end result is luxurious without the grainy texture.

Party Popper (in Flash) Cake bombs can be destroyed either by making simple matches along the edges of the cake (unless being protected by Candy Cane Fence or Candy Cane Curl) or by using special candies and their combinations.
