Holiday Vendor Fair’s
Hey everyone I wanted to say THANK YOU for coming out to see us Wednesday, November 12th at the National Institutes of Health. We enjoyed seeing friends from last year as well as making some new ones. It’s always great to see our repeat customers.
Sunday was our first time participating in the Holiday Vendor Fair put on by the Real Housewives of Loudoun County Virginia. I’m thrilled to be a part of that great group of people. This was there second event and it was GREAT! We look forward to doing the Spring fair in 2015.
Cake Pop flavors we had on had at the shows were our signature chocolate fudge, red velvet, apple cake dipped in salted caramel and pumpkin spice with cream cheese. We also brought out our turkeys done in chocolate fudge featuring cute tags so that our customers can use them as name cards or as a take away for the big Thanksgiving dinner.
Here are a few photos of our booth from both events. I am so in love with my “tu-tu” skirt I had made for the shows. I always get alot of compliments on how beautiful our table looks. Presentation and TASTE above all is key!
This week I will be making some martini olive pops, wedding party pops and more turkeys. Turkeys will be here from now until the big day so go ahead and get your order in now.
Happy Monday Fun day
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Have you checked your’s?
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.
Pumpkin spice day
Apple Spice warm from the oven
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.
Look at all those apples in there!

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.
