Gender Reveal Cake Pops Decoration
  1. Melt white wafers in the microwave on 50% power for 30 second intervals. Stirring after each interval until melted. If mixture is thick, thin by using Wilton Candy Melts EZ Thin Dipping Aid, or mixing in 1 tsp. shortening or oil at a time until desired thinness.
  2. Remove several cake balls from the fridge at a time.
  3. Dip ½ inch of a lollipop stick into the melted wafers and insert it almost half way into a cake ball. Allow the cake pop to rest for 30 seconds or a minute to let the melted wafers harden onto the stick.
  4. Dip the cake ball fully into the melted wafers while holding onto the stick.
  5. After dipping, gently tap and rotate the stick to remove the excess candy coating.
  6. Sprinkle pink and blue sprinkles onto the cake pop before the candy coating hardens.
