It’s been a long time….

11 Apr

I’m sorry, it’s been a long time and I haven’t updated this blog for almost a year.  As you can see in the last post, my partner, Crystal is not longer part of Something Sweet For You.  She given birth to a wonderful baby girl and has now devoting her time to her family 🙂  I’m so happy for her and sad at the same time 😦  But she’ll keep baking!!!

Last year was a busy year with work, getting healthy, traveling, and a bit of baking.  Work has always been crazy and with trying to be more healthy with cooking and working out there hasn’t been much time to bake and experiment.  My family took our grandma to Europe for the first time and she had such a great time! I’ll have to do a special post just on Europe!

We did get some great orders last year from celebrating weddings to celebrating anti-bullying day.  Here is a few snaps from 2013!

 

Star Trek
I was asked to make a Star Trek themed cake pop and my client was looking for Spock and Captain Kirk cake pop. It wasn’t an easy task 😐 but I think it turned out pretty good! 😀

Golf
We had the opportunity to participate in the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) cake auction at the ALS golf tournament and we made some golf themed cake pops. The Cake Auction raised over $3000 alone! We were so happy to participate to such a great cause 😀

WeddingBride & Groom My good friends got married last year in August and we made their wedding favours for them. We made over 350 cake pops, packaged, and delivered them. It was a beautiful wedding and we were happy to be a part of their special day!

♥ Something Blue ♥

16 Apr

In my last post, I made a blue bird cake pop for a trial run for a wedding and am so happy with the final results!  The wedding was at The Four Season for a beautiful bride named Angie and a handsome groom named Vic.  Their wedding reception was beautiful and inspired by Tiffany blue.   They had ordered blue bird cake pops (matched perfectly!), but I wanted to do something special for them so I made a bride & groom blue bird cake pop and it turned out super cute!

Take a look at our set up, isn’t the cake pop stand beautiful?  I absolutely love it!  and you can change the ribbon to any color you want.  The cake stand holds approx 145 cake pops.  I’m so lucky to have found this and now when you order you can rent this for any event!

Happy Belated ♥ Day!

How was your Valentine’s Day?  What did you do?  Who did you spend it with?

Valentine’s Day does not always have to be spent with your boyfriend or girlfriend but with any loved one.  It’s just a special day to let the ones you love know that you care about them.  I spent my Valentine’s Day spreading the love and spending some time with R.

What better way to say Happy ♥ Day then to give them something sweet to eat!  I had a few orders for Valentine’s; I baked about 4 dozen Hidden Heart Cupcakes and 1 Cupcake Bouquet.  I hope all the kids at school, the coworkers, and my friends enjoyed the Hidden Heart Cupcakes!  The Cupcake Bouquet was for a special wife!  With the leftover, I made some cake pops.Valentine's Cupcake

What a busy couple of months,  I finally have time to sit down, blog and bake!  I can’t wait to show you the Valentine’s Cupcake I made this weekend!  I love making unique cupcakes and cake pops and every time there is a holiday I’m always thinking of what holiday themed goodies I can make.  These cupcakes remind me of filled cupcakes because there’s always a surprise inside!  Sorry to say, no fillings in this cupcake, but rather something else special.

Valentine's Cupcake

Cut open the cupcake (the right way) and you’ll find a hidden heart!!!  This is so cute and a bit time consuming..haha, but the results are worth it, just like your significant other 😉

I also wanted to show you what we have been up to in December, check out the photos below.

Snowman Cake Pop   We were asked to participate in a Pop Up Store at Blenz in Vancouver and we couldn’t say no!  I just love how the snowman turned out, he is absolutely adorable!

Wreath CupcakeAlso, I did some personal baking for family and friends.  I gave out Homemade Cookie Jars.  Homemade Cookie Jars are inexpensive and easy.  All you need is a jar (found mine at Homesense), dry ingredients, instructions, and voila!  I ended up tying a ribbon around the jar and printed my instructions and clipped it on with a clothes pin; simple and fast!

Summer Recap

22 Oct

This Summer has been very busy and I apologize for not updating this blog.  I really don’t know how people work full time, have a family and have their companies…they are really supersmoms or superdads! 🙂

This Summer was full of baking, baking and baking!  First Connie from Wedding Things who also is the creater of the Baker’s Market contacted me for a photoshoot.  She needed cake pops and mini cupcakes for a new display she was promoting and the timing was perfect!  I already had an order for making cake pops and mini cupcakes, so I was able to provide her with the goods!  I knew she had some new sticks she wanted to use on my cake pops, but I had no idea what she was using the rest for, but once I saw the pictures, they looked AWESOME!


Our cake pops were used on this beautiful display, Sweetie Pop.   ” The newest and most modern way to creatively display your gourmet lollipops, macaron pops or cake pops, The Sweetie Pop tree ” – Wedding Things

Our simple Cake Pops were used to display their new Wooden Cake Pop Sticks.  ” These are best used for upside down cake balls that will be displayed on a platter. The wood sticks can also be used as a skewer for fruit, marshmallows, or as a drink stir stick too ”            – Wedding Things

Wedding Things not only sell cake pops displays and accessories, but they sell everything and anything that has to do with weddings, parties, anniversaries, and more!  Please definately check them out!  They also ship Worldwide.
