Making dessert fun with bright and colorful cake pop bouquets that put a smile on everyone's face!

Tell us about your business.

I work in the electronics industry and used to bake on the weekends with my roommate. I took some decorating classes and would bring my cupcake creations into work. Eventually I got asked to start doing my co-workers kid's birthdays. One day I thought I'd try cake pops and then came up with the idea to make them into bouquets with themes and started bringing them with me to work events, parties, bbqs, etc. I had people asking me how much and if I could make some of them for their upcoming showers, weddings, birthdays, you name it. My "hobby" has turned into something I never could have imagined and it is so rewarding both to shock myself with what I can do and also to see people's reactions to what I have delivered to them. I love a challenge as far as what people come up with for themes and I love coming up with ways to make every bouquet unique. The possibilities are endless.

What makes your business stand out?

Cake pops are getting bigger and bigger right behind cupcakes and Macarons but not a lot of places offer them. The places that do offer cake pops are usually sold individually. What I bring to the table is something more unique in that I can put all these cake pops together in a cute display for someone to use as not only their dessert for their event, but as a decoration or centerpiece in the theme of their party.
