Stop and Smell the Roses

    I always wanted to try and make a bouquet of cake pops as I'm a very practical person and the idea of a consumable flower was very appealing; They're a flower and look pretty in a group but they're also a treat! I had hoped to take on this project last year but alas I wasn't able to. This year I got my chance to try and after testing out a couple petals, I finally got the knack and this is the end result. The whole flower is edible, except of course the stem and the leaf, they are artificial.

These ones I did in pink but they can be made into any rose colour. Red and white would be good options for Valentine's Day specifically. They can be ordered either by the dozen or individually. 

There is a full sized cake pop at the centre of each bloom.

All lovingly wrapped in fondant petals.

I placed mine in a goblet that acted as a short vase, and from the other side of the room the looked pretty real!

You can't help but smile...

Sugar for my Honey

After a surge of creativity and a wave of energy I finished all my samples of the Valentine's 2013 Collection. These will also be accessible through my Facebook page.

I am toying with a couple other ideas, so keep your eyes peeled!

A combination of shapes and colours that are classically associated with Valentine's Day.

 "Twolips" Pops. Create your own bouquet of "twolips". Also available in purple for Valentine's Day, but if you know your special someone has a favourite colour let me know!

 "Wrapped in Love" Simply elegant, with classic Valentine's colours. Again, purple is available to add to the pattern. 

 "Heart with Sprinkles" As close to the classic Valentine's chocolate box chocolate as I could get. Once again purple is available for the corner dip, and the heart sprinkles can be replaced with coloured sugar.

 "Love Muffins" White chocolate drizzled over the original colour with a matching sugar. Also available in pink. 

You could create your own bouquet of cake pops with an assortment of different designs or of one single design.

Either send me a message through my Facebook page, or leave me your email in a comment below if you'd like more information about ordering.

Valentine's Day Returns...

It's that time of year again when our stores are flooded with pink and red decorations, hearts, cupids, and any kind of chocolate imaginable. Although those heart-shaped boxes do bring a smile to my face when I get one, I must admit I've had it before. I would think that your special someone deserves something equally special and as unique as they are. "What could I get them??" I hear you ask.... a cake pop, of course!

I am in the process of designing the "2013 Collection", and will post pictures in the next coming days. There are only 16 days until Valentine's Day so if this year you do decide to go ahead and give your significant other a beautiful, individually wrapped cake pop or two, then please get in touch with me asap to avoid being disappointed.
