My friend requested cake pops for a baby shower event at her work. Since it was a joint baby shower for a girl and boy, I made a bouquet of pink and blue cake pops. She chose red velvet and lemon flavored cakes with pink and blue coating. I ended up really like the two colors together!

My friends Rey and Kate had their baby shower this past weekend and I was super excited when they asked me to make cupcakes for their event. I found cute little onsies and baby bottle cutters and decided to use them as the theme. They are expecting a girl, so I went with a girl color scheme for the fondant toppers and made red velvet, chocolate, and peppermint chocolate cupcakes.

Rey is also a big fan of Spiderman, so as an extra, I made Spiderman cake pops with a lemon flavored cake. I was worried that the pops didn’t look like Spiderman, but most people were able to recognize and relate them to the actual character. What do you think?

I got into making cake pops for the holiday season last year, and they were hit among the parties I took them to. I did an extensive amount of research, watched a bunch of Youtube videos and even bought Bakerella’s book. I made a good variety of cake pops, including carrot cake, chocolate, and vanilla.
Work held the first ever fundraiser bakesale competition at the beginning of December 2010. I entered, not thinking I would even have a chance of winning. Among a group of 20 or so other bakers, I ended up winning first place for my cake pops and won a $100 gift certificate to Williams-Sonoma! I was quite proud and happy!
