These cake pops were done for a friend's sister-in-law's daughter. She saw these brownie pops from this site, Brownie Pops and she wanted to incorporate these as favors. She wanted them to look a little chic but yet nice for her daughter's baptism. We found these on Beaucoup and they were just what she wanted.
I used my ever so popular homemade chocolate cake recipe and formed them into cake balls. I inserted a lollipop stick into the cake ball and dipped them into melted white chocolate and milk chocolate. For the design, each pop had the baby's initial, A, for Abby and some other scrollwork and dot design. For the finishing touch, each pop was bagged and tied with a white fabric. A personalized tag with an guardian angel background brought it all together.

Here's a cake that attracted much attention in the month of December. I actually had a very busy December, which was good. A friend that I went to high school with contacted me because it was going to be her daughter's 11th birthday. It was a sleepover party and theme was movies. I tried to incorporate all the aspects of movies with the popcorn, movie reel, tickets, stars and the director's/scene clapper. The popcorn is real! Yes! I just had to make it a little extra special.
Well, here's one cake I did for a friend's co-worker. She wanted the cake to be in shape of an iPod and it had to be pink because she loves the color pink. This is one of those things that has to be exact or else it doesn't look right. I think I did an ok job and I was so nervous before she came to pick it up. She was so happy with the results. When she brought it to the office, people kept saying how good the cake smelled and aroma of the buttercream and vanilla was amazing. So, I was happy. :)
