- MATCHED PAIR: Wedding cake pops from This Cake Pops!
It’s a simple idea… take a ball of cake, cover it in some sort of frosting or fondant and serve it up — a single serving of sweetness just for you, the perfect size to dine on.
The idea has suddenly caught on and spread like wildfire. I noticed this weekend that Starbucks is offering its version. But I can pretty much guarantee they’re not as pretty as these examples from This Cake Pops!, the work of Fort Smith cake pop maker Michelle Tucker. I discovered her work through Details Weddings and Events, which recently hosted a giveaway of the pops. They were so cute, I just had to find out more.
They’re also pretty easy on the waistline — if you limit just how many you have. Each cake pop is one point on the Weight Watchers scale. Not bad, not bad.
If you’re interested, these cake pops come $15 for a dozen regular pops and $20 for a dozen deluxe pops (like the Razorback — and those that require a lot more labor in the decoration). I’m thinking they’d be ideal for birthday parties and maybe even wedding favors. They keep in the fridge for up to two weeks… hm… 12 pops over two weeks… (evil food-consumption thoughts go here).
