  1. Do not overmix the cake mixture or your cake will not rise and will be dense in texture.
  2. It is always better to store the cake pops at room temperature. If you refrigerate and store them then condensation will start appearing on the surface. 
  3. Do not make the ball size too big or else they will not stay on the stick. 

You can use plastic sticks in place of bamboo/wooden ones. But bamboo/wood is more sustainable
