The vacation season is such a cheerful time to bake and share sweets with family and friends. And cake pops are certainly one of my favourite treats to reward. However they’re additionally simple to ship and ship to your favourite individuals. I’m usually requested what’s one of the simplest ways to bundle them so that they make it safely to their vacation spot. So, when the chance to work with Scotch® Model happened, I believed I’d share with you precisely how I’ve shipped them previously.

However, earlier than we will ship, we want some cake pops to dip. Tremendous cute candy-themed cake pops, that’s.
Listed below are my fundamental directions for making cake pops in case you haven’t given them a go earlier than.
As a result of the cake is combined with frosting and utterly enrobed in sweet coating, they’ll keep recent and engaging for a number of days.
To make easy spherical cake pops appear to be laborious sweet, simply draw swirls and pinwheel designs on the coating utilizing edible-ink writing pens. I stuffed within the shade only a bit so you may see the place I’m going, however principally, drawing on the pops helps tremendously with the subsequent step.
Use a small brush to color a skinny layer of corn syrup over the drawn form after which sprinkle coloured sanding sugar proper on prime and it’ll connect like glue. You may also simply use a toothpick to coerce the sanding sugar in place if it breaks out of the drawn traces. I really like the sanding sugar impact as a result of it makes the pops look sparkly and sugary.
So cool! You may also apply sweet coating utilizing a toothpick over the drawn form after which add the sanding sugar, however this could add a bit further bulk and I prefer it when this design seems to be a bit flatter.
Once you’re making use of the sanding sugar, ensure you do it over a bowl so you may catch and reuse any that doesn’t connect.

And voila! The cutest sweet cake pops. Oh, wait… not the cutest but.
As an alternative of utilizing deal with baggage as they’re supposed, fold the bag in half and snip a tiny opening out of the middle/aspect of the bag. Insert the pop, stick first, into the bag after which by means of the opening. Then use twist ties (reduce into 1 1/2-inch sections) to safe the cake pop on both sides.
Okay, now they’re the cutest. Utilizing candy little deal with baggage actually seals the deal and makes you consider these cake pops as sweet.
And that is how I bundle them. There could also be higher methods, however this has labored for me each time I’ve mailed them previously.
Tucked in and able to go. I exploit 1 lb. sweet containers (they’re roughly 7” X 3.25″ X 1.75″) and cake pops utilizing 6-inch sticks. Place a small part of tissue paper within the backside of the field and lay pops (all the time in deal with baggage) in alternating instructions. Relying on the scale, I can get 3-4 in every field. Once you shut the field, the tissue they’re wrapped in will maintain them safe. You simply don’t need them transferring round within the field.
So now let’s spruce the containers up a bit to allow them to brighten somebody’s day.
This Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape jogs my memory of the sanding sugar so I believed it could be enjoyable to hold by means of the colours when packing them up secure, sound and tremendous cute.
To make a candy garland banner, fold tape over twine after which snip off the ends or reduce into pennant shapes.

The subsequent step is taping them up securely in bubble wrap.
Then place them in a bigger field full of extra packing materials across the backside, prime and sides.
Relying on how a lot further room you will have… use extra bubble wrap, paper packing, peanuts or tissue paper like above.
When all taped up and safe, you shouldn’t really feel or hear the contents inside transfer round.
Then your sweets are able to ship out in a single day. You may also ship 2-day, however I wouldn’t wait longer than that.
Different small sweets excellent for transport are: fudge, cereal treats, marshmallows, caramels, sugar cookies and caramel corn. And, if you wish to ship one thing by common mail, then fudge can be excellent.
Wait … Going dwelling for the vacations? Need a tip for touring together with your treats?
I’ve needed to fly with cake pops a number of occasions and that is my go to carrying case. Yep. A cooler. This one is a 9-quart dimension (roughly 13” X 9” X 9”) and it’ll maintain 9 of those sweet containers with a bit room left over. I can get a minimum of 36 cake pops inside. And utilizing tape to brighten the containers works completely as a result of it’s flat and gained’t get broken in transportation. The perks? The perimeters of the cooler take the brunt of any unintentional knocks, it matches properly below the airline seat in entrance of me, it has a deal with, and folks are likely to step apart after they see me carrying a small purple cooler. Excellent!
Anyway, I hope this helps you a bit for those who’re considering of transport or carrying your scrumptious treats this vacation season!
