Wedding maddness!!


It has been a very hectic time. I have been making cake pops, cupcake bouquets and wedding favours for a wedding in London. I hope everyone had a great day. Best wishes to the new couple.

Please have a look at the photos. The couple choose a gorgeous deep purple colour with contrasting cream.  There were a selection of table displays and then individual favour boxes.....an extra special one for the bride ( have a look at the teddy photo) ahh....

Sadly my camera does not replicate the colour very well. These were all made in a deep purple similar to Cadburys chocolate wrapping.

50th Birthday Party - Alco Cakepops!

Well, I had a great 50th party, the venue was perfect, on the beaches of the Isle of wight with great weather and the alcoholic cakepops were a great success.. made 140 of them alltogether, with various flavours, baileys seemed to be the favourite followed by champagne and strawberry . All the cup cakes went, some people took a few home and we have had alot of positive comments.. Most people had never heard of 'cakepops' but really enjoyed eating them.

Looking forward to getting back in the pop factory next week to make more and try different flavours. Also made Scooby Doo cup cakes and cakepops for my nephews 5th birthday, which is on monday. We have had a new request to make a football team of cakepops, they were challenging but came out looking really good, client very pleased with them. All in all a very busy week and now I'm looking forward to having a break at the weekend.... but not for long - new orders coming in. Got a new cake pop coming soon, so watch this space!

New Designs

Wow what a busy weekend.!!  I have been working a three tier wedding cake by making all the flowers for decoration. There are lots of pretty roses, Lilly of valley,blossoms and leaves. The cakes have been made and I will be decorating them tomorrow and plan to start putting the flowers in posies next weekend.

Big Mama 1 sounds like she is having fun.....an left me to do all the hard work ! We have a show in Friday evening and I am making lots of samples and having fun setting up displays. The first stand fell apart and I spoilt a few cakepops. Not a good start but best to find out the pitfalls at home rather than on the night.  Little Em is having a birthday party on Saturday, so we are all keeping our fingers crossed that this wet weather has disappeared and she can enjoy her pretty cake pops at her Bar-b-Que in the garden.

Have a look at these pretty new designs.

Meet Princess Grace!!

Here's our first attempt at Princess Grace for the girls' pops...
