Making shaped cake pops is a little harder than the simple round pops but they are so fun, makes it worth the effort. When I made these heart shaped pops I rolled my cake pop mix with a rolling pin so that I could cut them out with a cookie cutter. I made them smaller than I wanted the actual pop to be because the two layers of chocolate (double dipping saves cracking!) really add to the size of the pop. Once I had the hearts cut out, I chilled them overnight (or at least 3 hours) so they were nice and firm when I was ready to dip them.
Here are my other posts that will walk you through basic cake pop making from this point…..
Once my pops were dry I had a lot of fun decorating, I laid them on wax paper to do the lines and letters. I also added in some round pops just for fun. Happy Dipping!
