It’s October 1st and that means it is Breast Cancer awareness month!! A mammogram can save your life and should be started at age 40 (or sooner if family history.)
We all know someone who has been affected by this disease why not celebrate that person with a pop bouquet covered in pink ribbons showing your love and support. With each Breast Cancer pop arrangement I will include a free card made by me as shown below.
Having personally gone through a biopsy I know what it is like to wait for the results, being so scared it literally consumes your life. I was given an all clear and for that I am grateful, however, I know so many that were not that fortunate and my heart goes out to them deeply.
Take a minute to give a pop bouquet to your friend, family member or maybe just an acquaintance of yours to let them know you are thinking of them. Its a small gesture that will go a long way.
Do you know someone in your life that has been affected by breast cancer? Someone who has been diagnosed and is currently fighting this disease? Someone who is in remission or someone who lost the battle? Well October is a time to remember, pray and honor all those affected by breast cancer. I personally had a scare several years ago that ended in a clear biopsy but it makes me think daily of those who did not have that result. So please get your mammogram today. Life is precious save the tatas!!
It is never to late to have a cheerful bouquet sent to that special someone to simply say “I’m thinking of you” Order a dozen today and don’t worry we do these all year long because October is not the only month to bring attention to breast cancer awareness.
Apple spice cake is just one of our amazing cake flavors for October. This is fresh out of the oven can you smell it? How about a apple spice cake pop dipped in a salted caramel chocolate could you die? Order some shaped like pumpkins, ghosts and mummy’s for you and/or your kids Halloween parties.

Tasty Tuesday everyone
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!!

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!
Today I have been very busy working on some items for the 6th birthday bash we are having for our niece. If you couldn’t tell by the title its a CIRCUS theme party YAY (can you tell I’m excited about it? ) So today I baked up a nice confetti fun cake, rolled and dipped for some clown pops. Here is what I have done on them so far
These are SO cute the kids, and parents, will love them! I’m only doing a dozen since we have LOTS of fun things planned. Check out these what I like to call “MuscleMALLOW” dumbells below. If you click on the picture you’ll get the whole view in there.
Its been quite a productive day here at Tasty Cake Pop. Next up will be to finish our cute little clowns and dumbells and tomorrow afternoon start working on some fondant pieces. Be sure to check back daily to see what is going on.
My crafting started out with scrapbooking, then blossomed to rubber stamping, jewelry and cake. So with that said, I am also doing all the paper items such as banners for the party and popcorn boxes so I need to get those all glued up also. Did I mention the party is this Sunday? OH and they are calling for what could be a “significant snow.” Now just mentioning the word SNOW here in our Nations Capital and everyone FREAKS so please pray that this storm does not arrive until Sunday night as they are talking about, if at all!
Tasty Monday everyone
This is a question that is often asked by those that have SEEN cake pops but have yet to have a TASTY CAKE POP (like that plug? ) This way of making cake pops came to me after hours upon hours of research online one winter. So this is the ORIGINAL way to make cake pops.
1. Bake a Tasty cake
2. Crumble your cake
3. Mix in frosting/flavorings
4. Roll or shape
5. Insert sticks
6. Dip in chocolate
7. EAT AND ENJOY!
Now some of you may have seen those cake pop makers that you put the cake batter into and it cooks your cake into round balls, this is NOT the original way to make these yummy morsels. Now you CAN make them like that if you like but be forewarned this will result in a dry cake pop and not the yummy truffle like morsel pictured above. Those cake pops look like this:
If you decide to give it a try have fun with it, don’t stress even the ones that dont look beautiful on your first try will still taste wonderful.
Have a TASTY day everyone
With the Holidays coming it is a time to remember those who do the things that perhaps we take for granted like our newspaper carrier, the coffee shop employees that make that perfect latte daily and our healthcare providers. Since we will be at the Holiday Bazaar at NIH Friday what a great time to grab a few of these cute little “scrubs” We are also working on a Nurses appreciation pop so stay tuned!! Its chillly here so what a great day to play with cake!
