Candy Cake Pop Experiment~

~Happy Sunday! Well, it is a rainy day here in the Couv, so I thought since I don't have to water all of my flowers and tend to the yard, I could experiement with some more cake pops. I thought ah-hah.. CANDY! Wouldn't these be great at a kid's birthday party! I used crushed up Butterfinger bars, oreo cookies, and mini m&m's! They weren't as easy to make since everything kept wanting to fall off, but in the end, I was able to make a couple of dozen of these candy coated pops.. the experiment continues.. I already have some different candy toppings I want to try! Enjoy and enjoy the rest of the weekend..

Bridal Shower Pops~

~Good Saturday to you! I wanted to share some cake pops I delivered on Friday to a bridal shower. Her colors were dark orange and teal and for the life of me, I could not find teal sprinkles, so after some experimenting, I created my own! I was so excited when I got the beautiful teal color I was hoping for. I simply dyed them with my baker's candy coloring until I got the perfect shade of teal. It is so funny, you can find blue, light green, dark green, dark blue but nothing in between, or not that I have been able to find, so now I know how to make them myself. So, I am so happy to hear that the bride loved them! They are a mix of red velvet and chocolate covered in white chocolate.. Thanks for looking!! Have a great rest of the weekend.

Lilac Birthday Pops~

~Hello there!
I was busy over Fourth of July, not cooking hamburgers and hot dogs, but making cake pops, of course!! These were made for a special co-worker at Banfield for her birthday. Her co-workers ordered them for her and said that lilac was her favorite color, so here they are all prettied up! They really reminded me of a wedding favor or a baby shower favor, I like the color of these a lot. I heard she was happily surprised by her gift and I hope she had a very happy birthday. These were red velvet cake pops covered in white chocolate and lilac sugar sprinkles. Have a great warm evening! Nicole

Gone Fishing Cupcakes~

~Good Evening! I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July.. Ours was actually quiet but nice and took the moms to dinner! We had fun, we always do! We love our mamas so much! The Thursday before the 4th, I made some cupcakes for my friend at work who was taking these "Gone Fishing" themed cupcakes to her friend's retirement party! This is definitely going to be one of her favorite hobbies when she retires, so we thought these would be perfect for her. These are chocolatey chocolate cupcakes with vanilla bean cream cheese icing.. Yummm-o! Thanks for taking a look! Have a great night.. be back soon..

Howdy Cowpoke~

~Hi there.. one more this evening I just got done making.. this is for my co-worker's horse trainer.. not much out there in the sense of horse stuff, so I found a red bandana and tied it around a metal container that I thought resembled a horse or farm feeder, I don't know, I am a city girl, hahaha, anyway, I hope she likes this and they can even use the bandana after their cake pops are eaten up! Have a great night.. see you soon. Cupcakes and more cake pops next week, so more pics soon!! Nicole


~Good Evening! I wanted to share this fun patriotic basket with you that someone asked me to make for her co-worker's U.S. citizenship party. They wanted to surprise him with this cake pop filled basket filled with red, white and blue decorated pops! Half of them are red velvet and the other half in chocolate! There are 150 displayed here, enough to share with all of his co-workers and probably some extras too share with friends and family too! I had fun creating this basket. It reminded me of upcoming Fourth of July holiday. Thanks for stopping by.. have a great night! Nicole

Cheesecake on a Stick!

~Hi there! So, I thought after making 200 cake pops this weekend for someone, I still kept thinking about trying a new recipe.. I already had my chocolate out and melted, so I thought what the heck.. so, I grabbed a cheesecake I had bought recently and my mini cookie scooper and removed small pieces of the cheesecake that I then formed into balls. I rolled them in graham cracker crumbs and then dipped them in milk chocolate, and covered half of them in chocolate sprinkles and the other half in oreo crumbs! I will post a picture of them soon, but I had to show you the inside of these new little masterpieces. I love cheesecake, so these are perfectly yummy. I kind of feel like I am cheating on my cake pops since they are my tried and true desserts on a stick, but why not, right?? Give them a try..they are super easy to make! Have a great Sunday...Nicole

Introducing....... LEMON!!!!

~Yay!! Thank you to a special guy I met today that ordered these pops for his friend! How sweet, huh!! Well, he said she loved lemon, and asked if I could make cake pops in lemon flavor and I said, hmmm, I will sure try! My first attempt a few months ago left me with cake pops that resembled cornbread! Cornbread yummy, cornbread cake pops, not so yummy! So, I didn't try them again until now and yay, success! I was so happy with the way they tasted, perfectly lemon-y and moist! So, I am now loving the lemon and think I have a new favorite!! These are summery and sweet and I hope his friend enjoys.. I got a sweet text from him tonight saying he couldn't resist, and snuck one from the box and he thought the lemon flavor was great! So, I am happy now... just had to share with you... Thank you for your inspiration!! Have a great night! Nicole

Pre-Fourth of July~

~Hi there.. I was making some samples the other night for the 4th of July holiday soon, and I thought I would share them with my friend and sista Lori at work today.. These are not only 4th of July decorated cake pops, they are special inside.. she was the only other person besides myself that has tried these.. I will explain in the next post! Anyway, I just made a few to share but I plan on taking orders for these in any flavor for the holiday.. If you have an upcoming party planned or just want to sample a few for yourself, let me know! I used a small planter to hold these cute little patriotic pops! See you soon.. Nicole
