Happy Easter (Cake Pops)!

Mellisa, over at Getting All My Ducks in a Row, created this adorably sweet video for me yesterday.  I just had to share it with you!

Happy Easter!

Eggs-cellent Easter Cake Pops

I got a request to do Easter Egg cake pops.  I usually make Peeps-shaped cake pops, and I'd never done egg shapes before, but the idea just sounded so fun!

Plus, the lady sent me the party invite, and it was just too cute not to make pops for :)

So, I made sparkly glittery eggs.

And some pretty sprinkly ones.

And some confetti ones, too!

I'm definitely going to post these in my shop for next Easter!

MS Number Crunch

You mayyyy remember a whopping month ago, I mentioned helping my childhood friend, Jenny, fundraise for her Multiple Sclerosis walk.  I decided to make my donation this year with the help of Sarandipity Sweets, to see how much we could raise by making it a joint effort.  It was simple - for every cake pop sold in March, I'd donate fifty cents.  Want to know how we all did? :D

I'm proud to announce that, with all your amazing support, Sarandipity Sweets donated $313 to MS research through Jenny's team.  Hurrah!  I'm seriously so amazed and thankful for everyone who teamed up to help make a huge donation. 

How's that for a happy Monday, eh?

Nighttime Sparklers

These Ball Cake Pops are my latest mockups.  (I seem to be doing a lot of custom ideas all of a sudden!)  These are for a local bride, and we're brainstorming ideas for her formal reception in navy blue and white. 

No one makes navy blue sanding sugar, so I "made" my own by mixing black with royal blue.  I love how it turned out!  I also love the white sugared cake pops.  The photos don't show it well, but sanding sugar sparkles in the light.  They'd be gorgeous for an all-white party or winter wedding reception!
