Move over, cupcakes, there’s a new sweet trend taking over the dessert world… Cake Pops! With many styles, flavors and color scheme possibilities, these tiny bite-sized balls of deliciousness are perfect for the price-conscious bride who is on a tight budget. Cake Pops can cost less than cupcakes or the traditional wedding cake. They are easy to eat, needing no additional utensils or plates to serve and provide portion control for guests. No leftover cake to eat for days after the wedding!
If you worry this trend is not formal enough for you, then forgo the stick and place the colorful dipped, decorated cake balls in mini-cupcake liners and add edible pearls, flowers and sparkling sugar and use them as favors or accents for your cake table. Perfect for bridal showers too!
Cake Pops can be a great DIY for your wedding! There’s even a special appliance you can buy called “Babycakes Cake Pop Maker” that make these little cake balls easily. But if you want to save time and don’t want to do the work yourself, contact your wedding cake specialist to see if they offer this option.
