What it's like to take a bite!

If you were to browse the interwebs, you will find that there are literally thousands of different cake pops out there. I'm often asked "What makes your cake pops so different?" It could be the way I masterfully hand mix the batter. It could be the way I finesse the eggs as they are gently, but effortlessly, cracked into the stainless steel pan. Maybe it's the way I fend off my three beautiful children from sneaking a tasty nibble or two after the cake has been made. I have even considered the possibility of it being the warm, moist steam that gently rises from the cakes as they are freshly pulled hot from the oven. It certainly could be all of those things, but I think the number one thing that makes my cake pops different is the love that is placed in each and every batch. I could take short cuts, but you can't short cut love. I want everyone that bites into the moist, sweet nectar of my cake pops to experience the same love that I pour into each hand made, home made bite!  Enjoy!

I have learned a valuable lesson this year.  Never ship cake pops in the summer heat.  Many other cake pop makers do ship in the summer months, but I never will again.  I had so many customers receive them and they were melted, or cracked.  It made me feel awful and so unprofessional.  I never thought I would encounter so many problems over cake pops.  It truly was hit or miss.  You would have some orders arrive perfect, and other far less perfect.  It affects a baker because of all of the time that was spent making those cake pops.  So I managed to find a seller on Amazon that has the cardboard box with the Styrofoam insert.  This has helped, and will certainly help avoid damage in the winter from shipping.  From now on I will use this method as it is working!  Now we are off to the busy season of holidays!

My first post!

Halloween is a month away, are you ready?  My favorite time of year is Halloween, and of course baking cake pops for this season is so much fun.  I have decided that I am going to have a party for the kiddos this year.  I have learned that it is really hard to balance life and a business, but it is getting better.  What do you plan to do for Halloween?
