What do people usually associate Mother’s Day with? FLOWERS!! This was by far the most orders I’ve ever gotten for this special occasion. It started with an order that was put in a month in advanced. This order was the basket of family members with flowers. This can be viewed here. I was making baby cake pops and had some extras so I decided to make a flower arrangement just as a practice. I wanted to hold a contest to see who would win this flower pot so I decided to hold this contest on Facebook. You have to “like” the Facebook page and “like” the actual picture in order to win. After posting this picture up, I got a few orders here and there. I had an order of 10 flower pots, and a few other bigger pots which contained between 6-15 cake pops. This was definitely a success because after that, I’ve been getting emails and messages on more orders! Looks like June will be a busy month! Thanks to everyone who ordered and congratulations to Linda Tang on winning the cake pop flower pop, which is the last picture shown!
I received an order a month in advanced to make a little family basket for Mother’s Day! This was definitely a challenge as I have never made people out of cake pops before, well, besides the babies, but those require much less work than adults! Another challenge I encountered was making lone hair! I will definitely have to practice and find some techniques to make long hair for girls. Perhaps I shall use fondant next time? Today was super hot so I had to work fast and worse case scenario, stick them in the fridge! I hope the family love these chocolate chip cake pops!

A few weeks ago, I attempted to make baby girl cake pops and they turned out great! So great that I got another order of these little baby girls! Now knowing the process of how to make them, it took less time to make it! I knew what had to be done and these were fun to make the second time! I had some extra cake balls left so I decided to make baby rattles! This is like 2 cake pops in 1! Just when you think you haven’t had enough, you can turn it around and eat the other side!! The drying part was a little tricky but good thing cubs were invented! Once I dipped the rattle part, I let it tried on the stand. After it was dried, I dipped the handle part and flipped it upside down into a cup to let the other part dry! Although these don’t rattle, they sure are cute!
A year ago, I made my first big order of cake pops for a friend for her wedding day! Now the lucky husband and wife are having a little one! She wanted to make some cake pops to reveal the sex of the baby. Covering half of them blue and half of them pink, they had to guess what the sex of the baby was. One bite into the cake pop will reveal the sex of the baby and….DRUMROLL…..it’s a GIRL! I also made some baby girl cake pops to celebrate the wonderful and joyous occasion! This was my little gift to her and she had no idea I was making it! Congrats to the lovely couple and may this little bundle of joy bring you both happiness!
My sister has a coworker and his birthday was coming up. She was just going to make plain old cupcakes! I told her that I would make cake pops for her just because I wanted to try something new! I happen to know that her coworker loves the Los Angeles Angels baseball team so I wanted to try to make some baseballs! Turned out pretty good for a first timer if I do say so myself. I tried using a toothpick to draw on the stitches but that took way to long. I used some parchment paper to make my own piping bag and that turned out a lot nicer and was a complete time saver! I youtubed a DIY video and this really helped. To view the video, click here. I also experimented and replaced the oil for applesauce. This turned out great because 1) it is not oily 2) it doesn’t turn the sticks yellow and 3) it’s healthier!! Definitely using this method from now on! I hope her coworker enjoyed them!
Happy Birthday to Brandon! I had so much fun making these cake pops! This was my second time making an ombre affect for cake pops and this time around was a lot easier! The first one can be found here. Definitely learning more as I make MORE! I have learned that buying white candy melts is a lot easier than buying different colors because I can basically make any specific color I want. These were red velvet and vanilla flavored! This was my first time making a vanilla flavor and it tasted absolutely delightful! I hope the birthday boy enjoys them as well as his guests. Bought some boxes at my favorite store Papersource to box up some extras because you can never have enough! Thanks for ordering
Had an order to make cake pops for an Indian wedding! Although this wedding took place on a yacht and no outside food was allowed on the boat, these little pops were made and given to the bride and groom, along with his coworkers. I love the brightness and colors at Indian weddings and the couple decided on pink and purple. I added the touch of gold sprinkles because I really think the gold compliments these two colors really well. When I think of Indian, I automatically think of the beautiful artwork of Henna. I wanted to do something that was similar to that and I think the brown intricate of the swirls and leaf shaped drizzle was perfect. I hope the couple love and enjoy these red velvet cake pops! Of course, I had left over chocolate and a bag of pretzels so I decided to not waste the chocolate and cover these bad boys up! Love pretzels especially dipped in chocolate!
A friend of mine asked me to make cake pops for his company’s charity luncheon at Allianz. They usually order Sprinkles cupcakes but he suggested that they try something new. He pitched an idea to have my cake pops ordered and within a few days, I got a call and it was confirmed! Blue, white, and gray were the choice of colors as well as red velvet, chocolate, and strawberry cake were requested. I usually get orders for a weekend so I am use to making cake pops on a friday night. Since these cake pops were needed on a Friday, I had to break it up into two days. Bake and roll Wednesday night, dip and decorate Thursday morning, and then wrap and tag Thursday night. This was definitely a great way to conserve my energy because previously, I would just get only get a couple hours of sleep since I would do everything on the same day! This is my go to way to make cake pops from now on! On another note, I heard these were a big hit at the charity luncheon! Thanks for ordering!!
Today, I entered in a baking contest at work! I made a few chocolate cake pops with chocolate frosting and red velvet cake pops with cream cheese frosting. No one ever really orders cake pops with a nice milky chocolate coating because everyone likes the custom colors, which are usually available in a vanilla flavor. Chocolate is probably my favorite taste in candy coating and I just love the looks of these cake pops. They are delicious yet simple looking. It reminds me of your typical See’s Candies! My favorite flavor would have to be chocolate with nuts! Yum yum yum! There were a few people who entered in the contest and baked some delicious desserts! Good luck to those who entered! I hope I win!!
