The month of May is quickly approaching and it is time to announce once again, the flavor of the month special!
When you order TWO dozen cake pops in the flavor of the month, you will recieve an additional 1/2 dozen for free!
As for cupcakes: when you order ONE dozen, you will receive an additional 1/2 dozen for free!
The catch: With cake pops, the special only applies to "Plain Pops."
Now, enough about the technical stuffs and onto the FLAVOR OF THE MONTH!
Are you sure you're ready?
For the month of May:
When you request Key Lime cake pops/cupcakes, you will be getting a tangy and delicious cake made with real key lime juice and mixed with cream cheese frosting, and then dipped in green or yellow candy melt and swirled with either green or yellow.
For cupcakes, they will be topped with cream cheese frosting and topped with a slice of lime for decoration and green and yellow sprinkles!
I can't wait to make these ones!
Keep watching each month to find out what the Flavor special will be!

Communion/Confirmation Cakes!

I was recently asked to do 11 mini cakes for a Confirmation taking place this Sunday. 7 kids and 4 Sponsers.
I struggled with an idea for the cakes. The cakes are just far to small to do much with. So, after throwing a hissy fit and stomping my feet, I took to the internet. I came across a cake that someone had done using wafer cookies and I thought, hey, I could do something like that!
And so, here is the end product!

I used multi-colored/flavored Twizzlers, cut down to the size of the cake, stuck them to the cake with the frosting, then cut out a yellow cross in fondant, swirled frosting on top and placed the cross on top in the center, then tied it all together with a yellow ribbon.

For the Adult/Sponsers cakes, I used the same method, but used Kit Kats and chocolate fondant cross and tied it up with a red ribbon.

A view from the top :)

Both cakes together! They look awesome. I'm loving the fun colored one best!

SpongeBob Square Pants

A while back, I had someone ask me about doing SpongeBob cake pops. I was super excited because I had been wanting to do those, but hadn't found the opportunity to try them out.
Unfortunately, things fell through as they sometimes do, so I didn't get my chance.
I decided last night when I was working on some Volleyball cake pops that I would finally make my SpongeBob with left over cake bits I had.

I think he turned out OK. His nose might need some work. I tried to be different as far as using something other than a yellow mini chip like most people do, so I used a piece of banana Laffy Taffy, but I'm not sure if I am loving the way it looks. However, he still looks pretty good and would be great for a child's birthday party!

Special Treat!

First off, let me say that I LOVE this recipe.
So easy to make and so pretty and best of all, SO YUMMY!
I borrowed this recipe from http://www.thenovicechefblog.com
She has awesome recipes that are easy to make. Everyone should check her out!
Now, back to the good stuff!
What are these, you ask? They are Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries!

Are your mouths watering yet? They should be!
These awesome Little treats were so simple to make. I started out with 2 cartons of strawberries, washed them and then cut off the tops of each one. I then took my knife and carved out the hull of the strawberry. Since I was short on time, I used JELLO no bake cheesecake. It even comes with the graham cracker crumbs! You make the cheesecake according to the box and refrigerate until ready to use. I scooped it into a piping bag when it was ready and piped a little bit into each strawberry.
I then took each one and smashed the top portion into the crushed graham crackers. Once that was done, I melted some chocolate and just drizzled it over all the strawberries. Simple, easy and delicious!

Earth Day

So, it's been about a week or so since my last post...sorry about that. My family came into town from Tennessee, so orders were on hold so that I could spend some quality time with them!
It was a great visit and I wish that they could come back more often.
While they were here, Earth Day came and went.
So, in honor of Earth Day, even if it is a few days late...
I give you...
These cute little replicas of our Earth were simle and easy to make. I just dipped the pops in blue candy melt and used a tooth pick and green candy melt for the land masses.

YUM! Who knew that the Earth's core tastes like Vanilla cake and cream cheese frosting? LOL.

First Cake project!

I was asked to make a mini cake and a big cake along with the cake pops in the previous post, for a boy's first birthday. I will tell you honestly, I was scared stupid. I have never done a cake for someone other than family before, so this was a challenge for me.
I started out with the mini cake:

Not bad for my first time. the frosting is buttercream dyed green. Then piped on flowers for the first time ever, then made the cow out of fondant.

Here is the cow and cake again with a mini "1".

Now for the main event!

This is my barnyard cake! I made everything on it out of fondant! I am actually impressed with myself!

I've got sheep, lambs, a horse, pig and cow. Duckies, a rooster, what else could I possibly need? lol.

I look forward to making another cake! This was so much fun!

When the mom came to pick up the cakes and the cake pops, I wanted to show her the cakes before she took them home. I love to see people's reactions and don't often get to see them because I'm either dropping off the goodies to them and in a rush, or my hubby takes them for me.
The reactions her and her son showed to the cakes were amazing! She was so excited about seeing them and Lawson was ready to dive right in to both cakes! He kept grabbing for them and making grunting noises! The look on his face was appreciation enough for me! lol.

Barnyard cake pops!

I got the chance to make cute barnyard animals for a little boys first birthday! Aren't they neat?

I did piggies , cows, baby chicks and baby roosters!
I think the cows are my favorite!

I have decided to start doing a "Flavor of the Month" with my cake pops and with cupcakes!
Each month will be a new flavor!
Here's the deal: When you order 2 dozen cake pops in the flavor of the month, You will receive an additional 1/2 dozen for free!
As for cupcakes: When you order ONE Dozen, You will receive an additional 1/2 dozen free!
The catch: With cake pops, the Flavor of the Month Special only applies to "Plain Pops."
So, for the month of April, the specialty flavor is:
What will you be getting if you request Strawberry Shortcake?
Well, I'm glad you asked!
Strawberry Shortcake cake pops will be a White cake baked with fresh strawberry bits and mixed with a strawberry vanilla frosting, dipped in a white vanilla candy coating and topped with a candy strawberry!
For Cupcakes, they will be White cake baked with fresh strawberry bits and topped with a strawberry vanilla swirl and a fresh strawberry slice!
Sounds Yummy and Tempting doesn't it?

***Keep Watching to see what Next Month's flavor will be!**

Sunshine and Baseball

Recently I was asked to do a special Birthday arrangement for some one's Dad. The customer plans on taking them with her when she visits him in New Jersey! YUP, that's right kids, my pops are traveling out of the state! Woot Woot!
She wanted just a simple arrangement of some of his favorite things: sunshine, cupcakes and the Philadelphia's Phillies!
Here are my awesome rays of sunshine! They're too cool...or crazy...lol. I made these using chocolate chips attached to the cake pop, then dipped them in the yellow candy melt. I then used black candy melt for the sunglasses and smiles. The ones with out sunglasses, I used sprinkles and my edible black pen for the eyes.
Baseballs and Logos!

Go Phillies!

The Last of the Easter Posts!

Happy Easter to all!
I think this is finally the last of my Easter Treats! I went on a cake pop marathon this week, working around the clock on 8 orders. Boy that was fun and interesting. LOL.
However, I still found time to use my creativity to it's best! One of my orders required making pops for place settings. She wanted 3 Easter egg pops for each setting. Well, she got eggs alright...

With one surprise in the middle!
I am in love with these cute little chickies "popping" out of their shells! I don't know why I never thought of it before!

Here is a look at just one of the many basket arrangements I did.

I "borrowed" (with permission) this cute little baby rooster concept from a fellow popper: Confection Concoctions (www.confectionconcoctions.com). Isn't He adorable?!? Thanks for the idea Laura!

I perfected my little lambs! Rolled the mini marshmallows a bit smaller so they didn't make the lamb totally explode! lol.

And I love this bunny much more than the first one! Instead of using the mini mallows for the cheeks, good ol' white candy melt was used instead. :) He is so much cuter this way!
So that is the end of the Easter treats for this year! Hope you all enjoyed and I wish you and yours a Happy and Blessed Easter!
