Surprise and Appreciation

Today, I made some cake pops for a friend. As I was just "messing around", trying new designs and things, I accidentally made a pumpkin!
I can't wait to make Halloween Cake Pops. If you know me, you know I love Halloween. It was a nice surprise to make something so cute.

I also made chocolate, chocolate, chocolate (of course) cake pops for a few nurses at a local hospital. Nothing fancy, just confetti cake coated in white or dark chocolate. Some had coconut, some had both the white and dark chocolate, I hope all are delicious.

Next up are Teacher Appreciation gifts for the upcoming week and a Mother's Day order. We hope you consider Gourmet Filled Cupcakes or Cake Pops for your upcoming event!

The Pops Aren't Just For The Girls....

I know I post a lot of pics of pretty pink and purple cake pops that glitter or are covered in daisies. Look at these pretty crown pops!!! (which we are going to make).
See? Sooooo pretty!!!

But cake pops aren't just for girly girls. Oh no.

How about Lego cake pops?

Or how about knight helmets for a "Knights and Dragons" party?

Or Puppy Pops!
Check out the Thomas the Train pops. It's really just red, white and blue cake pops in a Thomas the Train container. Presentation is everything!

See? Cake pops aren't just for girls!

The Merry Month of May-Thank a Teacher

If you can read this, thank a teacher!
The month of May is filled with celebrations. There's Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day (May 8th), Armed Forces Day (May 21st) and Memorial Day (May 30th).
I bet you didn't know that the first week of May (May 2-6) is Teacher Appreciation Week!
Teachers play a key role in every individual’s development and evolution. Showing appreciation to them is a fair reward and an act of gratitude.

Say Thank You to your favorite Teacher with gourmet filled cupcakes or cake pops!

Fake Pops

I posted on our Facebook page (don't forget to "like" us!) that we attempted to sell our Cake Pops on Saturday, outside in the searing heat and humidity of South Texas. It didn't work out too well.
While trying to figure out how we could keep the pops chilled, it occurred to me that restaurants have those fake desserts that they bring to your table to tempt you. So I said "Hey, I'll make fake cake pops for display!"

So I did.
They ALMOST look real, right?!
They make edible glitter that we could use, but those are REAL sprinkles!
This is "chocolate" with sprinkles. Notice the "white chocolate" in the background.
I call the one in the front "sunburst."

They were really fun to make, pretty funny to look at, and totally inedible. They WILL come in handy for a display though.

If you order cake pops from Cherry Bomb, I guarantee fresh ingredients every time! No Styrofoam balls and glitter for you! Real, homemade cake and frosting. Delicious.

Order now!

Pops and Humidity

Cherry Bomb is located in deep south Texas. We are in a tropical climate, near the gulf coast. It is hot and HUMID 11 months out of the year.

We attempted to sell our cake pops outside yesterday for the first time. It didn't go really well. Our pops were melting in the sun, they were sweating in the humidity; it wasn't pretty. They WERE still delicious, but we watched our hard decorating work kind of melt away.....

When you receive your cake pops order, try to keep them in a cool, dry place. The candy melt they are dipped in is a lot like the chocolate you would find on a chocolate covered cherry or in a box of Whitman's chocolates. If we had refrigerated your pops before, we will let you know to keep them refrigerated. This will keep them from falling off of the stick before you get a chance to enjoy the entire dessert!

We hope you order cake pops from Cherry Bomb for your upcoming event, holiday, occasion or just because. After all, everyone loves cake!

Administrative Professionals Day

I'm an Administrative Professional by day. I admit that I love it. I love being an Office Manager, Administrative Assistant, I love being the person that knows where everything is, knowing who to call to fix certain things, knowing who to talk to for a discount on paper or brochures. I love it almost as much as I love doing my job for non-profits.
I also love Administrative Professionals Day. Who doesn't love getting presents and recognition for doing something they love to do?
Cherry Bomb Gourmet Cupcakes and Cake Pops is offering cute cake pop bouquets for your Administrative Professional. The cake pops can be presented in a coffee mug (because your Administrative Professional will no doubt make the coffee since yours doesn't taste right) or in a cute basket that can be re-used for a myriad of different things.
Call us, email us or order right here on our site. Give your Administrative Professional something a little different this year!

Vanilla, Vanilla, Vanilla

Last night, I made some vanilla cake pops with vanilla cake, vanilla frosting and vanilla candy melt. The candy melt was a beautiful lavender color. I topped some with coconut and some with sprinkles. I have two sad photos of them, because as soon as they set, they were eaten by members of my household, and I can't take pictures as nice as Bakerella!
