cake pops galore!

I have been blessed with the start of my business: cody cakes and my very first order from a client that needed cake pops for a trade show.  They asked that I use a recipe they provided using a product that they had just introduced and asked for 450 cake pops!  I had TWO WEEKS to prepare!!  WHOA was this exciting stuff!!

Needless to say I'm stubborn, a control freak and perfectionist- which somehow didn't work in my favor for this project.  I wanted each hand-rolled cake pop to be uniform, packed to a certain pressure of my hand, weighing all the same weight (0.9 oz), as round as round could be; quite simply, as perfect as a hand-rolled cake pop would be. I have learned that my perfectionist and control attributes could quite possibly be my greatest weakness.  However, I was 110% pleased with the outcome of my perfectly rolled cake pops- but it took me MUCH longer than I thought...Maybe I should have... YES, I should have accepted the help that was offered!!   *note to self, …

rainbow colored cake pops

I'm working on a project and a company sent me their sugar crystals- look at all of these fun colors!!  It even shows up on the dark chocolate candy melts!!!

Can't say much just yet, because nothing is official but they sure are a cool company with great products!!  Grateful and appreciative are words that keep re-surfacing lately and I can't say it enough!!

Happy day!
