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.
Next up, my new “twitter friend” @CandiedCakes makes these gorgeous edible jewels. I haven’t taken a close look the sizes yet but pop just one of these on top of a cake ball and you’ve got instant love (by me at least)! Click here to purchase.
Martha Stewart also has a terrific idea out for sugar cookie pops, click here for the recipe.
Finally, I’m starting to have a bit of fun with Valentine’s Day too…nothin’ says love like a pig!
Every time I passed these spider cake pops on the counter I couldn’t get over how creepy they really were. I tried several types of licorice for the legs and found that the absolute “creepiest” (and most delicious) was Darrell Lea Soft Eating Licorice.
I purchased Darrell Lea licorice at a local Target (North Hills/Raleigh).
Each spider is a basic cake pop dipped in chocolate and covered with chocolate sprinkles. For the legs…I cut long, thin strips of the licorice pieces and “glued” them near the top of the pops with melted chocolate.
This simple pop will offer a BIG fright! Happy Halloween!

The Review! The Review!
“Today I will review the “bomb diggity” of Cake Pops – the Chocolate Lemon Cake Pop from Raleigh Cake Pops. If you are looking for a unique food gift for the dark chocolate lover in your life, look no further. These Cake Pops are personally dipped in dark chocolate by the talented Anne Flanagan, owner of Raleigh Cake Pops.
The combination of dark chocolate and moist lemon cake is simple, yet dangerous. The sweetness of the chocolate and the subtle sourness of the lemon cake make these easy to devour. I could probably eat these quicker than a box of Oreos and those have been banned from my house as my metabolism slows down…”
