The secret to perfect cake pop swirls .. power tools!
I’m always thrilled when we get a baby girl “cake pop” design request. As the mother of boys, my crib bedding consisted of blue, brown, puppies, boats, plaid…you get the idea.
Our latest request…little birdies to match a darling baby girl bedding set from Pottery Barn called Penelope. Awww!
What do you think?
If you want to see the bedding head on over to Pottery Barn!
I received a special request for Lalaloopsy cake pops. As a mom to boys, I had no idea what a Lalaloopsy was!
I used basic cake pops and dipped them in tinted white chocolate (for skin tones, I slowly add milk chocolate to white chocolate until I see the right shade).
The hair is fondant. The cheeks are “smudged” circles created with an edible pink marker. The eyes are painted on using black color dust mixed with extract (any will do)…same for the smile (you can use an edible black marker too but I find that they are too light. I wanted to use something that would create a bolder look). The bows are simple little heart-shaped candies.
Here they are…
And here’s the set…
Here’s a revised pic 🙂

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.

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.

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!
