My hands weren’t that steady using food decorator pens, and cutting letters out of fondant was such a tedious task.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

We wanted to share a couple of our St. Pat’s cake pops with you. Can you tell we’ve been spending WAAAY too much time on instagram (follow us @raleighcakepops)?

The one on the left is a little red-headed leprechaun with a cute little sparkle top hat we found at a local craft store. The pop on the right is a picture of our mint cake pops dipped in white chocolate….sooo yummy.

A wee little Irish proverb for you…

Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.

Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day!
