We did three new flavors:
Mounds Bar: Coconut cake mixed with a light coconut frosting dipped in dark (or milk if you prefer) chocolate with coconut sprinkled on top
Lemon Raspberry: Moist lemon cake mixed with a vanilla frosting with a dab of raspberry jam in the center that has been dipped in a white raspberry fudge chocolate. OH MY this smells so good!
Black Forest: Our favorite chocolate cake with a hint of cherry mixed with chocolate frosting, a cherry in the center and dipped in milk or dark chocolate.

Tasty Monday everyone
Fall is in the air
Happy Saturday everyone! Is it getting chilly where you are? We have had a few chilly mornings here in the Washington area but they turn into beautiful sunny days. Fall is a great time to get outside and explore nature with the ones you love. It is also time to start thinking about Halloween. I’m partial to the holiday because it is my birthday. Are there any other Halloween babies out there????
We are starting to get booked for October, however there is still time to place your orders. Pops make great treats to bring to the kids school for parties. Cake pops are also great in bouquets for those that are allergic to flowers or if you just want something different to give for a special occasion. We create lots of cake pops so if you can think we can try and build it for you.
Halloween is fun for pumpkins, scarecrows, ghosts and goblins all from CAKE. Take a minute to check out our gallery and please go LIKE us on Facebook. Be sure to share us with your friends we ship.
Enjoy your weekend everyone
One fish, Two fish……
I had some pops left over from a recent order and thought I would play around. The idea to make a fish came from the small fish bowl I had recently purchased at a Dollar Store. The moment I saw this tiny fish bowl I knew it would be so cute filled with small candy rounds that resemble “rocks” and a fish pop inside. Here is what I came up with below.
How cute is this? My fish was actually a bit too big for the small bowl but my nephew Alex who is newly turned 4, and my official taste tester, squealed with delight when he saw it. He thought it was a dinosaur fish and could not wait to eat it!
I think these would be great at a child’s party dessert table, as centerpieces, weddings that are on/near water for the kids (Psss don’t forget the big kids too!) So many things you can do with these lil cuties. What about a retirement party for someone who likes to fish oh the possibilities are endless.
Please come visit us on Facebook and share with your friends. I’m trying to grow my site and get the likes up to 100. When it hits 100 some LUCKY person will get a SURPRISE from Tasty Cake Pop!! Tasty Cake Pop for all your needs big and small there is nothing we can’t do. Ok maybe there is but we will try our best!!
Have a Tasty Tuesday all
Happy Day Cake
The temps are dropping again so what’s a girl to do? Bake a Happy Day Cake! What is a happy day cake you ask, well its chock full of wonderful blueberries. I had a large bag of these lil gems tucked away in the freezer from the end of summer and today they turned into happy day cake. I got this recipe years ago, like 20+, from a friend and when my grandmother would visit she would always request this; or when I went to visit her! So today i”m going to share the recipe with you folks and if you bake one up be sure to comment and/or email us some pictures of yours.
Happy Day Cake Recipe
4.5 cups flour ** 3 cups of sugar ** 2 teaspoons salt ** 5 teaspoons baking powder ** 1 cup of oil such as vegetable ** 2 cups of milk ** 2 teaspoons of vanilla ( I only use pure vanilla extract) ** 2 cups of blueberries or more if you want a lot. I freeze my blueberries first and then I gently fold them into the batter so my whole cake does not turn blue. ** 4 eggs
Pre-heat your oven to 350
I use a kitchen aid mixer and I put all the dry ingredients into the bowl first, using the flat paddle attachment I turn it on low and mix up all the dry items to evenly distribute them. Then with the mixer still on low I add the wet ingredients one by one until thoroughly mixed.
I use a spray such as Bakers Joy for my pans but you can certainly use butter and flour if you like. I also like to line my pan with parchment paper .Grease a 9 x 13″ pan and pour your batter into the pan. I like to tap the pan on the counter a few times to get the cake settled and it also helps with air bubbles. Place in your pre-heated oven and cook until your toothpick or skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. This should take at least 90 minutes but please start checking yours after it has been in the oven for one hour. My cake took close to 2 hours. WOW you say? yup, its a long time but slow and steady wins the race and the payoff is AWESOME. Cooking times also vary depending on the pan used ex: shiny metals or dark metal pans. Dark metal pans tend to cook faster and more often than not require a bit lower cooking temp so I try and avoid those.
Side note: you could also use Lemon extract and make this as a delicious lemon-y blueberry cake now THAT is also DELICIOUS!!
Let your cake cool (hopefully you can keep everyone out of it long enough to cool it!) and serve
This is what the batter will look like after you have folded in your frozen blueberries
Below is what your yummy cake will look like inside when its done. My blueberries were quite large and wanted to sink to the bottom as you can see.

Please enjoy and have a TASTY Thursday everyone!!
Are you thinking about Spring like me?
Tasty Tuesday everyone! Are you like me today dreaming of spring? We had some very spring-like weather last week and on Monday it went from being 60 to 30 Brrrrrrrr
For me the thought of Spring and Easter makes me think of LEMON. Lemon-y desserts have a light and refreshing taste to them. I always look forward to making these Lemon cake pops or balls.
These luscious lemon goodies were made into cake balls, and they were quickly gone!
What flavors remind you of Springtime? If I could post a tutorial what would you want to learn? I want to hear from you guys out there what cake projects have you done lately feel free to email me some pictures.
Have a TASTY day everyone!
Preparing for snow…..
Is it snowing where you are yet? What provisions do you take when your area is calling for a large amount of snow? Here in the DC area we just are not equipped to handle a lot of snow/ice so I had to chuckle a bit when yesterday Virginia declared a State of emergency already………..the snow is expected somewhere around 8-10pm TONIGHT! Now having lived in Maine for a long time we no how to handle snow and unless they are calling for at least a foot (probably more) nothing is declared a state of emergency LOL school are closed that’s about it! Luckily enough the grocery store was not too busy when I went this morning but as I was leaving around 10:30 it was getting to be.
Here is a photo of the dessert table at the Circus Birthday Party. Let Tasty Cake Pop plan your child’s next party. We did everything for this event right down to the custom made Circus dress shown here:
Here is the cutest Ferris wheel cupcake holder we found
This lucky 6 year old also had a PETTING ZOO! WOW that was fun! Keep checking back for more photos.
Tasty Wednesday everyone and stay safe especially those in the South that are not used to this!
