Easy Father’s Day Treats!

Untitled design

Don’t forget about Father’s Day on Sunday! Dads, grandfathers, and father figures all deserve to know how much we appreciate them and everything they have taught us. My dad has educated me well on the finer things in life such as fishing, old cars, Pete Townshend, and cheese (he’s from Wisconsin). Thanks, Dad! Since we can have more than [Read more >>]

Margarita Cake Balls

Margaritas. You can get them blended, on the rocks, in a can with beer, in a salt-rimmed glass the size of your head, and in candy like suckers and jelly beans. Just when you think the margarita has been served up in all the ways possible, along comes… The Margarita Cake Ball. These little delights [Read more >>]

It’s Giveaway Time!

Tee Pee Cake Bites

You might remember a couple weeks ago when I made THESE awesome cake pops. My Little Cupcake was generous enough to send me a variety pack of their cake pop molds to test out! The verdict? I’m in love… I also thought it would be a great opportunity to host a giveaway… An awesome giveaway that includes:

Pinocchio Cake Pops!

Pinocchio Cake Pops by Miss CandiQuik

Isn’t he just so dang cute?! I love his facial expressions. Do young kids even know who Pinocchio is? I sure hope so, otherwise this is going to be a total fail. These would be adorable to have at a birthday party. In fact, I’m going to make sure my kids see every classic Disney movie. Have [Read more >>]

Peanut Butter & Jam Cake Pops (made with greek yogurt!)

Can I tell you the truth about my relationship with peanut butter!? I love peanut butter on apples. However, I’m not the biggest fan of peanut butter cookies (I know, I’m crazy). Plus, I’m totally picky about the brand of peanut butter I use - if it’s with apples, has to be Mara Natha. But please, if [Read more >>]

Or about 12 full sheet cakes! Plus a whole lotta frosting. Not to mention approximately 66 POUNDS of CANDIQUIK! Holy moly.

Chocolate Kiss Cake Bites

I made these last year for Valentine’s Day and decided they needed a post of their own. They are so dang cute and although I made them for Valentine’s – they are universal and customizable. Here I had thought that I had came up with an awesome, original idea (if there is such a thing)! [Read more >>]

Cake Bite Christmas Tree

Cake Bite Christmas Tree - made entirely of cake bites! @candiquik

  This tree has to be one of the most elegant and awe-some desserts I have made! I won’t lead you on, it was a bit time consuming. I would highly suggest breaking it up into a 2-3 day project. Make your cake pop mixture on day 1. Coat and decorate your cake pops the following day [Read more >>]
