Follow our step-by-step instructions included in your bakeitbox kit to make your white chocolate & raspberry cake ball mixture. Everyone else, make up any cake ball mixture of your choosing!
Once you've made your mixture, it's time to form them into log shapes. Watch how we do it below!
TIP: Make sure to include a raspberry or two in each scoop & push any large raspberry pieces towards the inner center.
We added 1tbsp of mixture per ball here. Once you've used up all the mixture, place the logs in the freezer to firm up for ~15min.
FYI: The standard way to make cake balls is to roll the mixture within your hands, but because we are using real raspberries here, it would get too messy & the raspberry juices would drip out everywhere. So we recommend using glad-wrap!
Next, remove the glad-wrap & cut each log in half. Then place them flat side down on a piece of baking paper/ parchment paper.
TIP: Re-mould the cake balls if needed.
Dip the tip of the lollipop stick into the melted choc & insert it half way into the round end of the cake pop. Then let them sit for ~5 mins to allow the chocolate to harden & cake pops to warm up.
TIP: If there are any large pieces of raspberries poking out at the top, after you insert the lollipop stick in, use your finger to smooth on additional chocolate around area to further secure the stick on.
Then dip each cake pop into the melted chocolate & to remove excess chocolate: Lift up, hold it sideways & slowly rotate the cake pop. With your free hand, gently tap the wrist of your other hand. Alternatively, use a spoon to coat them instead.

TIP: Tilt cake pop & container in one direction & then the opposite direction. Avoid stirring or swirling your cake pop, otherwise it may fall off the stick.
TIP: Add shortening / paramount crystals if you find your melted chocolate is thickening up or find it difficult to work with. Click here to learn more about thinning chocolate.

Fill up your piping bag with the melted chocolate & pipe a swirl pattern on the top of each of your cake pops. If you have shaky hands, best to keep the cake pops in the stand & use both hands to pipe vs. doing it one handed.
