TO COAT the cake pops, add food colouring of your choice to the melted white chocolate or keep it plain. Press a skewer or a fork into the cake balls and dip into the melted chocolate, making sure the cake ball is fully covered with chocolate. Run the skewer through a cooling rack with a baking tray underneath the baking tray and pull to leave the cake pop behind. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off

DECORATE as desired.

Notes

You can also freeze the cake pop balls with skewers inside when ready to dip and then remove them when ready to serve. This might make it easier for you to coat.
