I Heart Cake Pops...
I have fallen in love. With cake pops...
These cakey, yummy balls of decorated goodness are my new favourite thing.
The cake pops book by the totally fabulous Bakerella (www.bakerella.com) is inspiring and every page has something oh-so pretty on it. You'll be in the kitchen before you know it! And, best of all, Bakerella (aka Angie Dudley) positively encourages to start your cake pop making by using cake packet mixes. Excellent! Check out these red velvet cake balls - http://www.bakerella.com/red-velvet-cake-balls/
But, my thoughts are these are great for weddings. Instead of big chunks of cake, how about delicate little cake pops? I can imagine beautifully coloured pops on sticks poking up from a flower covered square of oasis or chocolate covered cake balls (without the sticks!) served with coffee after the wedding breakfast. You can design any pop to go with your theme and pops wrapped in cellophane would be great wedding favours too. Oooh, can't you just feel your imagination running riot?
And isn't that what weddings should be all about?!
