I was fortunate enough to be asked to provide CakePoPs as one of the menu items at the Webber Park Grill in Skokie. Recently taken over by Lynda Ross in the lobby of the Skatium. They have been a very popular item and hope they will continue to be! A nice variety of flavors are always available ... chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, lemon along with some seasonal flavors like the delicious pumpkin spice for Fall.

I was honored when my friend Rochelle asked me to bake for her wedding. She wanted something a bit different so we came up with a combination of items in place of a traditional wedding cake. She did want a small cake and asked me to do a chocolate with chocolate mousse filling ... I did that and covered it in fondant and piped some floral inspired designs with royal icing, incorporating her colors of purple, green and yellow. That topped an acrylic serving tower. She also wanted CakePoPs and Cupcakes, so we did alternating layers of Red Velvet, Chocolate and Vanilla CakePoPs with layers of Carrot Cake, Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes all iced in her colors. I created custom Cupcake liners with their names and the date of the wedding and repeated that on custom tags tied to the CakePoPs. It turned out really beautiful and everyone LOVED it all ... especially the Bride and Groom! We all wish them many years of happiness! Here are a few pictures to share from the event.

A friend of mine tasted a new CakePoP combination that I tried ... Strawberry Lemonade! She loved them so much she ordered 3 dozen for a party for a friend of her's that was moving away. I made up a batch of Strawberry CakePoPs that were coated with Lemon flavored candy coating that I tinted a pale yellow and topped with hot pink sprinkles. I created custom tags in pale yellow with hot pink lettering that said "We'll Miss You". Ebony said they LOVED them!
