Free Disney Frozen Printable for Cake Pops

Happy New Year!

My goodness have we been busy at the shop! I haven’t even had the time to write a blog post (last one was six months ago, gulp!).

With that said, here’s a great one to kick off the new year. It’s a printable for cake pops with three of the popular characters from Disney’s Frozen … Elsa, Olaf, and Anna!

Here’s a photo to give you an idea of how you can use them on cake pops. Simply print out the jpeg below on card stock or other sturdy paper, cut out the characters, and tape them to the sticks…so cute!

Cake Pop Tags (Free Printables)

Happy Tuesday! Let’s talk tags.

One of the most popular accessories for cake pops has got to be customized tags.

Tags are little love notes that can be added to the sticks or tied on with ribbon. They’re usually around 2-inches or so and can turn a simple cake pop into the perfect favor. Here are a few we’ve done…

Cake Pop Tags

I’d love to share with you how I make tags and offer a few freebies as well. If you’d like us to create a printable just for you, we offer them on our web-site for $5- per file. Click here.

OK, so the most important elements are color/theme, message, names, and the event date.

Step 1: I find a font that fits the theme. If I don’t have a font in my library already I’ll search or similar free font site. Some of my fav’s lately are Alex Brush and Museo. When in doubt, stick with Adobe Caslon Pro!

Step 2: If I need a graphic, I head on over to a (paid) site called This site has wonderful graphics for everything from wedding images to baby shower pictures. There are also quite  a few sites out there that offer free clip art, try

Step 3: I create the tags and set up the sheets using Adobe Illustrator (or Photoshop).
You can use Word too. Here’s a Word template for 2-inch tags: 2-inch-Template-Cake-Pop-Tags

Tip! When working with fonts try to keep it to one or two max. Keep it simple. Don’t go nuts with strokes and drop shadows (aka “word art”). The text is small and those design elements will make the message difficult to read.

Step 4: I print the sheets out on glossy cardstock on an HP Photosmart Premium Inkjet Printer.

Step 5: I use a professional Rotatrim cutter for smooth, crisp cuts.

Step 6: I then carefully (test one first!) hole punch the tags with a heavy duty hole punch. We cut a lot of tags so while a hand-held punch will certainly get the job done, this saves our hands from aching!

And…that’s it!


If my method seems a bit complicated, here are some simple shortcuts:

PAPER: opt for readily available cardstock sheets from Walmart or any office supply store (Staples, Office Max, etc.)
HOLE PUNCH: use any hand-held hole punch
CUTTER: I do not recommend scissors. Try (carefully!!) cutting single sheets on a self-healing cutting mat using an x-acto knife and 18-inch metal ruler as a guide.


Now for some FREEBIES!
Here are two fun tag sheets you can print and use… Here’s the PDF to print –> Tags

Cake Pop Stand Review (Boss Cake Pop Towers)

Happy Saturday! I’m excited to introduce you to this new tiered cake pop stand made by Boss Cupcake Stands!


Here are the stats:

  • Made in the USA
  • Constructed of white, high density plastic (virtually indestructible)
  • Four tiers – 6”, 10”, 14” and 18”
    -6-inch has 16 holes
    -10-inch has 36 holes
    -14-inch has 64 holes
    -18-inch has 96 holes
  • Holds a total of 212 cake pops using small 4-inch lollipop sticks (or click here to pre-order through us for stands that use the 6 x 7/32″ cookie sticks. 4-6 week lead time. Same price!)
  • Tiers are held together with sturdy aluminum rods
  • Total stand height 21″ (24″ using the 6-inch cookie sticks)
  • Available with round or square tiers

There are four feet that raise the base up off of the table about an inch. The feet can be used on either of the two largest levels. Without the feet, all levels lay flat so they can even be used alone.

OK, now for some cool stuff…

You don’t have to use every level–it’s literally like owning 4 (or more) cake pop stands!

How many times have you had a client ask for a stand for 100 but you only have one that holds 200 or vice versa?

You see, each level is a separate board and you construct it with the aluminum rods. So fully constructed, you’ve got a stand for 212 cake pops. Need a smaller one? Remove the bottom level and now you have a stand for 116. Even smaller? Remove the top level for a stand that holds an even 100! I could go on and on.

AND….the levels (not the largest level) can be flipped to hide the holes so it’s perfect for cake pops AND cupcakes!

This stand is just so versatile!

OK, I’m done.

Want one?

The price of the stand is $199.99 plus shipping (ships flat, roughly $20 in the US).

The stands that hold the small 4-inch sticks are a stock item and usually ship within 24 hours. You can buy them directly from Boss Cupcake Stands:

What do we think of the cake pop “Easy Roller”? (a quick review)

If you make cake pops you probably own or have seen the Easy Roller by HCP. If not, click here for the you tube video (warning: the background music is pretty catchy!).

Image Property of Heavenly Cake Pops

The Easy Roller was designed to make cake poppin’ easier and faster.

So what do I think?

Well, I’m a HUGE advocate of the Easy Roller (created by Jennifer Cucci at Heavenly Cake Pops). Honestly, we cannot work as efficiently without it.

TIP: If you only have a few hundred pops to make for one event, invite some friends over for a rolling party (we have!). Use ice cream scoops or try a meatballer tool.

Is it easy?

The Easy Roller takes practice. While it won’t turn you into a cake pop manufacturer (you’d probably need a $100,000 machine for that), it does make “cake popping” EASIER. Especially if you make a lot of cake pops.

In my opinion, if you have a cake pop business and make a few hundred or a few thousand cake pops per month–you may want to invest in the Easy Roller. Not only is it a time-saver, it will provide you with a consistent product every time.

So you have a roller but can’t seem to figure it out?

First, get in touch with Heavenly Cake Pops. They are ALWAYS there for us and willing to offer any help or advice.

Here are a few tips we’ve figured out (Here’s a quick homemade video!)…

1. The dough has to be moist and compact–like play doh! This can take practice. Keep in mind, if you have been making cake pops for a while and have an established business, you may have to change the consistency
of your dough a bit.

2. VERY cold dough works best!

3. When you roll the dough out in the frame you have to make sure the dough is the height (fills the space) of the white plastic frame on the low setting (for the standard insert–see image below). Too little dough makes dents in the balls–too much dough makes oblong (egg shaped) balls.

If you ever have any questions just let me know. We roll thousands of cake balls a month with the roller–we can’t live without it!

Valentine’s Day Cake Pops

Valentine’s Day will be here soon! That means it’s time for hearts, hearts and more hearts, right?

Not for me. This year, I’m thinking about something a little more unique.

If you want to stand out from the crowd and turn your cake pops into “love-worthy” treats, take a look at these beautiful (and edible) products I recently found on the web for Valentine’s Day.

For starters, check out my new friend Sachiko’s incredible fondant creations! Click here for her Etsy page. I’ll definitely be picking some of these up for the holiday.
