Halloween Cake Pops and a Giveaway!



Hi Guys!

Sorry it's been so long, but I'm back with a gift for you.



I just received this book, Crazy for Cake Pops in the mail and I'm so excited about it.  I thought I knew all there was to know about cake pops, but I was mistaken.  This book has so many techniques and flavor ideas it's incredible!

The Cake Pop- A Treat That's as Fun to Make as It Is to Eat!


A beautifully decorated cake can wow anyone. And there's nothing more entertaining than food on a stick.  Combine the two and you've got the incredibly cute, one-bite, hand-held snacks everyone loves: cake pops!

Introducing Crazy for Cake Pops, a craft cookbook packed with 50 cake-on-a-stick designs and 70 stunning color photos. The wide range of exciting shapes and tasty flavors with have you eager to make and decorate these treats for any and every occasion.  A few fun examples:
  • Birthday Party Clown Pops
  • Halloween Jack-o'-Lanterns
  • Holiday Bauble Balls
  • Valentine's Day Sweetheart Pops
  • Game Night Poker Chips and Dice
...and more!

Teaching you how to create these scrumptious mini desserts with professional results, author Molly Bakes clearly explains the step-by-step process for cake pop success.  "These recipes show that you don't have to be a brilliant baker or even an experienced cake decorator to make these adorable treats," she says. "All you need is a few simple ingredients, some lollipop sticks, and, of course, your imagination!"

So, now I have one copy of the cute little book to give away.

  9. I haven't made cake pops before ...just Oreo Truffles - once -...but I'm fascinated by the fact that cake pops can be made in so many designs and flavours. Your pops are cute and very festive.

    Have to say, my first dipping of my Oreo Truffles made quite a mess and I haven't yet graduated to cake pops yet. I wonder if them being on a stick makes it easier to dip. Like the book recommendation. That photo of the teapot cake pop is really cute and would suit an Alice-themed tea party.

  16. How ironic!  Yesterday, my little brother asked me to make him cakepops for Halloween (I've never made them).  Guess I don't have an excuse not to, now!
