Cake Pops have taken over the world. (Or America and the UK at least…) From Harrods to Starbucks, they’re now the most recent cakey ‘craze’ to hit those with a sweet tooth. With cake pops you can literally have your cake and eat it, as they’re essentially balls of cake mixed with buttercream and decorated from simple cakey poppy balls to miniature Lady Gagas.
And so, without further ado, I present to you (In my humble cake obsessed opinion) the Top of the Pops! (I couldn’t resist the glaringly obvious association between the title of a beloved early evening music programme featuring the top music acts of that week and the perfect title it presented for this post…had to be done dear readers.)
Our story begins with Bakerella. Arguably The Creator of the Cake Pops and their various incarnations we have come to know and love. She has been creating amazing works of Cart (Cake-Art…again, apologies) and it all started with a humble little ball we now know as a ‘Cake Pop’
From balls to ice-creams, Bakerella’s imagination is limitless and inspiring!
…and of course she introduced the world to Cupcake Pops! The best thing since Cake Pops…
Ok so enough gushing about Bakerella, onto my next favourite Poppers who I regularly net-stalk; POP Bakery, the UK’s answer to Bakerella.
I’ll let their creations speak for themselves!
Is there a deep, subconscious childhood moral code against eating the heads of Lego men?!
Never seen anything like these before! Lil’ bit clever…
