Movember

We hope everyone is having a successful Movember! To celebrate your awesome staches, we would like to share a few of ours with you.

We were able to be a part of this adorable Little Man 1st birthday party!

Sweet little man Luke’s mom went all out with the decorations. We just absolutely love the drinks station filled with root “beer” and le”man”ade. We hope he had a great party! The mustache party hats were so cute that we’ll probably make some of our own just to wear around the bakery.

Back in August when Nintendo came to Austin for their WiiU launched, they had ordered some cakepops, cookies, and of course, some chocolate mustaches. We had a blast making these for their 3 day launch event. We hope everyone pranced around and jumped up and down looking like Mario and Luigi with these staches.

The chocolate mustaches were so much fun that we couldn’t just stop with Mario’s mustache. We had a few others we were playing with as well.

Here are a few friends of Sweet Pop with their mustaches.

If you could have a mustache, which style of stache would you want?

Super Sweet Pop!

We love superheroes around here! We have invisible capes that we wear when we’re in the kitchen popping away just in case you were ever curious. This post is in honor of our favorite superheroes. My real life super hero, my mom, found this piggy bank and got it for me. Isn’t it cute? I have a collection of Target piggy banks and this one is my favorite one yet. Guess what’s on the cape?

You guessed it! “SP”! Super Sweet Pop! How awesome is that?

Here is a mini collection of some of the superhero themed parties we’ve done. Hold on to your capes!

*edit: The picture doesn’t show it but this cake had a big yellow cape on the back. I’m sure this cake flew off their plates at this party.

Isn’t this little one super cute? He was so excited about his cake and cakepops that he wanted to bite into right away. His sweet mom stopped him before he did so we could take this picture. Cakepop SAVED!

Since today is opening day of the Dark Knight, we will have a few pictures of our Batman cakepops soon so check back!

Be SUPER and save the world today!

Scandalous sweets (warning mature content!)

(This post isn’t intended to offend anyone. It’s more for a lighthearted laugh so we apologize if we offend you in any way)

I have way too much fun decorating cookies. I think I have just as much fun eating them too. Here are some cookies that I made for a bachelorette party. The ladies who attended the party had a boudoir photoshoot so they wanted something to go along with the theme. What else to go along with the theme than corset cookies?

The bachelorette had red cowboy boots so there had to be some boots too! Aren’t these cute?

Here are some in pink.

A couple months ago I got a phone call from this gentleman asking for a “boob cake”.  My friends can be comedic at times so I thought it could possibly be one of them but I continued the conversation with this gentleman. It was truly a new client that was really wondering if it was something I do. To tell you the truth, I never really thought that I would do these types of sweets. It never really crossed my mind whether or not I would or wouldn’t but they’re only sweets right? People get a good laugh from them and enjoy the cake. I thought, why not?

This cake turned out better than I had expected! All of “Billy’s” coworkers got a kick out of the cake. I hope he had a great birthday!

Not less than a week after the first cake, I got an order for these birthday cupcakes! How funny.

It always makes me smile when people have fun with sweets!

All of these orders received lots of smiles and laughs. Everyone had (too much) fun with them as well as enjoyed eating them and to tell you the truth, that’s what really matters and what really makes me happy.

“See” food

One of my cakepop lovers requested a cake for his 6 year anniversary and of course I said, “sure thing!”  What goes better with love and anniversaries than cake?!? To celebrate this occasion he wanted to recreate one of their dates they had previously. (How cute!) He being a chef had made his girlfriend seared tuna and scallops for their romantic dinner since that’s her food of choice so obviously he wanted the cake to be the same thing except in red velvet so when he cut into the cake it would look like tuna! How cute and thoughtful.

This cake definitely made me crave a nice rare seared tuna steak for a good long while. I got word that she absolutely loved it! Hooray! Happy anniversary to you both!

If you were to have a cake shaped in your favorite foods, what would it be?

Chill out this summer!

In this blistering 100+ degree weather I had a customer request a penguin cake.  It became my “power animal”.  I should have had a slide on there too but that was just an after thought if you know my movie reference.  For this cake I had to imagine what it would be like to be a penguin and this was what I wish would happen in Austin every now and again.

This was so much fun to make because I just pictured myself throwing snowballs at my friends in the snow. The only problem with that is this is how it would happen…

In my mind I would be like this.

In reality it would turn out like this. Here is me being a cute penguin ready to get in the mix.

Before I knew it, I would be like this.

I hope you stay cool this summer indoors or if you’re outdoors, I hope you’re by some water. If you’re one of the lucky ones and get to escape this heat, please bring me back some nice weather.
