I love cake pops. I think they look so fancy and are such a special treat but I shied away from making them because they just seem to be so much work and make such a mess.
Well, I was right about that…they are a lot of work and did make a mess, which is what made me come up with this idea for a Cake Pop Stand.
I got this really neat cake pop pan that makes the baking easy. Then I dipped my pop sticks in white chocolate and then stuck them into the cake pops.
When I dipped them in chocolate, I discovered I had no where to place them while they hardened. Hmmmmm.
So I put them in the baking pan, but this just made a horrible mess and it didn’t have enough holes to hold all the cake pops.
This was NOT working. I knew there had to be a fix for this problem and so I asked My Better Half to create something like this:
All it is is a piece of extra trim with holes drilled in it. You don’t have to use trim, you could use any piece of thin scrap lumber (avoid treated lumber of course). He drilled the hole with a 3/16 drill bit to make room for the cake pop sticks.
It worked PERFECTLY!! And it was such a simple fix.
