Cake Pop necessity...

I forgot to mention this in my previous post about cake pops.

My super crafty friend, Liz introduced me to this amazing product that saved the day when we were making cake pops. It's called "Paramount Crystals" and it was essential when the almond bark or cake melts were getting kinda lumpy. I just sprinkled a few flakes in, stirred it up, let them set a few minutes and the cake melts were smooth and creamy. They truly saved the day. And the almond bark and cake melts.

I saw another suggestion for the same problem - add a few drops of vegetable oil to the almond bark/cake melts. And of course, don't add water or milk, it will cause them to seize up.  

Here's a link to the product at Amazon.com. I think you can get them much cheaper at a specialty cake and candy supply store, but this will give you an idea of what they look like.

Just thought I'd share the tip that saved the day... and the cake pops!
