Treats

Black Tie Cake Pop Truffles

  Ever since I took a cake pop class two springs ago, I’ve been hooked on this delicious dessert. I love trying new variations, such as my pink lemonade cake pops or hay stack version. Recently, a friend was telling me that she’s started leaving the stick out of her cake pops. It creates more […] Read more…

Chocolate Lollipop Mustache Cupcake Toppers

  It’s no secret. I love chocolate. And since that was my one (okay, maybe there was another one) weakness during my pregnancies, I’m sure it’s no surprise that Little Bug is also a chocolate fan. As I’ve started to throw more and more parties, I’ve become a fan of creating chocolates to match different […] Read more…

Treats Fit for the Birth of a Prince

As everyone has heard by now, the world welcomed a new prince last week. Prince George of Cambridge arrived in a flurry of celebration. I don’t think new parents could look any happier or a baby so adorable. Such an heavenly bundle of joy deserves some sweet celebration treats. I recently heard that Sprinkles cupcakes […] Read more…

Pink Lemonade Cake Pops

Every time we go into Starbucks (not that often I promise), Little Bug gets really excited about the cake pop display.

Fourth of July is such a fun holiday to design for because of all of the fun symbolism – fireworks, the American flag, stars and stripes, bald eagle, Uncle Sam’s hat – the […] Read more…

S’mores Marshmallow Pops

I feel like I’ve been talking a lot about marshmallows lately. Between Little Bug starting to eat them recently and s’mores being my favorite dessert during the summer, marshmallows have been taking over my dessert creating these past weeks. Although I would just as well serve my guests and family a bowl of plain marshmallows (yes, […] Read more…

Patriotic Fruit Kabobs

One of my favorite additions to a summer dessert table is fruit.  I love serving guests the bounty of the season and enjoy filling the table with an assortment of berries this time of year.  I can never get enough strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and even raspberries. Instead of just serving fruit in bowls or on […] Read more…
