Cake pops, or cake lollipops, have grown in popularity in recent years, in part due to the ease of delivery from plate to mouth. Baking a cake pop requires gourmet ingredients, and cake pop arrangements are increasingly more ornate and an interpretation of the creator's vision, which makes them ideal for parties and special events. Cake pops are easy to enjoy, and even easier to order as a custom order.
Cake pops are made using two different methods. The first method has two options. The first is to bake a traditional cake or pour the batter in a cake pop pan, create the shape desired, spear it with a stick and decorate. The second method is to create the batter, slowly mix in enough icing to ensure the cake pop stays moist on the stick while in transport or shipment, spear it with a stick and decorate.
Most cake pop orders are custom and provide a lot of variety not only for the customers, but also for the bakers. Depending on the season or the event, the flavors are light and airy fruit flavors or chocolate and nutty. Cake pops also encourage experimentation with flavors. Mixing a vanilla bean cake mix with a kiwi or honey flavored icing makes a cake pop that is an example of the cutting edge taste sensations a custom cake pop provides. With so many options to choose from, any order is guaranteed to make everyone happy.
While cake pops may not have the traditional real estate to decorate like a cake, there are many options to make them more than just cake lollipops on a stick. Frequently, icing is used in different flavors and colors to add punch to cake pops and provide variety. Other options include adding edible flowers, sugar paste flowers or edible beading. Arrangements are made to look like flower baskets, high school or college mascots and animals.
The appeal of cake pops has also made inroads in the corporate catering market. Easy to transport and deliver and increasingly showing up in bakeries across the country, corporations are finding unique uses, beyond the occasional holiday or departmental party, to deliver a bite of goodness to potential clients. Two of those uses include branding a cake pop with the corporate logo and providing them at lunch and learning opportunities or client meetings, and as branded handouts at trade shows. The individual properties of each cake pop ensure that they stay fresh and moist throughout each event.
Cake pops are new and novel and certainly easy to customize. They travel and ship well, and feature hands-free eating, which makes them easy to order and present, no matter what the occasion. Send gourmet cake pops today by ordering on our secure website.
