Champagne Cake Pops and Bites


I’m a complete sucker for Valentine’s Day. It all began way back in Mrs. Goldberg’s kindergarten class when we got to decorate our Valentine’s Day boxes. We covered those babies with so much glitter and stickers they would have made Lisa Frank proud. In addition to working tirelessly to transform plain shoeboxes into something that really represented who you [Read more >>]

Pumpkin Spice Cake Bites


When it comes to determining the actual start of fall, there are three types of people: the summer-break-is-over-and-school-has-begun folks, team fall-equinox-is-the-official-start-of-the-season, and last but certainly not least we have the pumpkin-spice-latte-is-back-and-so-my-life-is-complete crew. Regardless of which party you belong to, can we all just agree that fall is pretty darn awesome? With fresh school supplies, Halloween, the smell of crunchy leaves, my birthday (please, [Read more >>]

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 >>]

Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Pops

Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Pops

One of my favorite things about the holidays is the FOOD. Let’s get real here. No one really eats a boatload of peppermint or stuffs their faces with gingerbread during any other time of year. And if we’re being honest, I only really care about things like hot cocoa and truffles when the temps drop [Read more >>]

Frankenstein Twinkie Pops {And Monster Twinkie Pops!}


So I apologize to anyone in advance, but when it comes to Halloween, I get way too excited and immediately lose all semblance of willpower around bright bags of chocolate candy, pumpkin everything, spooky decor, and Halloween treats. It’s like the second stores break out the pumpkin goodies and plastic bat decorations, my mind kind [Read more >>]

It’s Giveaway Time!

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: [Read more >>]

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 >>]

Behind the Scenes: 2000 Cake Balls!


You may remember back in March I had a huge cake ball project. HUGE, as in 2000+ cake balls! That’s roughly 55 regular sized cakes (9×13″ pans). Or about 12 full sheet cakes! Plus a whole lotta frosting. Not to mention about 66 POUNDS of CANDIQUIK! Holy moly. These cake bites fed the guests that attended the 2012 Taste of [Read more >>]

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 >>]
