What are Cakepops ?
Cakepops are the new cupcake, far cuter than a cupcake ! They are yummy bite-sized pieces of cake covered in delicious chocolate served on a stick. So easy to just pop one into your mouth, or two....or three ! They are so easy to serve at parties, weddings, in fact any type of function - or even just to enjoy at home !
What is inside Cute Cake Pops ?
We use 2 different types of fillings for Cute Cake Pops.
Sponge filling is used in all the round cakepops. Available in Chocolate,Strawberry flavours.
It is ideal for children but also highly popular with adults as it is not as rich as the "Chocolate Fudge".
For the customised "shaped cakepops" we use a "Fudge"cakepop filling made of chocolate or Strawberry cake crumbs mixed with frosting.It is rich and delicious a bit like a chocolate truffle.This is used in the customised shaped cakepops as it is easy to mold .
We do not use any nut products in our standard Cakepops although some ingredients may contain traces of nuts.
What is on the outside ?
Cute Cakepops are covered in Chocolate and decorated in chocolate,candy,fondant or sugar sprinkles.
How Long do the Cake Pops last ?
Cute Cake Pops are safe to keep in the fridge or cool room for well over a week. Orders will be packed into a box for easy transportation. Simply assemble on the base/serving dish before the event. Keep in a cool place and keep the cakepops out of the sun !
Is EARLY COLLECTION or DELIVERY a problem ?
If your party is on a Sunday or Monday , or even if you simply have a million things to do on the day or day before the party- it is not a problem to collect the cakepops a day or few days early. Cakepops stay fresh for ages as they are coated in a layer of chocolate. This is what is so great about them compared to cupcakes or traditional cakes ! The cakepops will be packed in a confectionery box for easy transportation/storage in a fridge until the day of the party. Simply assemble on the display base at the time of the party.
How long does it take to make up an order ?
Small orders (less than 100 cake pops) will normally take 3 working days to complete though I can sometimes do orders in less than 24 hours- contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if your order is urgent.
Larger orders will require 7 working days notice. When you place an order please specify what date you require in the "comment" box in the checkout process. I will contact you if I will not be able to complete the order in time.
How many do I have to order ?
Our minimum amount per standard order is strictly 24 cakepops.
What are "Sitting" and "Standing" cakepops ?
"Sitting "Cakepops are cakepops which are made to sit on their own. They can be arranged on a plate, large platter or on a display stand.
"Standing" Cakepops are cakepops which need to be displayed with the lollistick inserted into a display stand to keep them upright.
What are the "Tags" ?
The tags are the little round paper discs are on the cakepops stick below the cakepops.They make the Cake Pops look really cute ! These can be customised with a greeting,name,picture,company logo- anything you want !
What choice do I have for display/packaging ?
All orders of cakepops will be provided to you packed in a confectionery box to allow easy and convenient transport and storage in a fridge/cooler box.
The following choices(at different prices) are available for packaging/display:
-you can choose to have a customised "paper tag" (see question above)
-you can choose to have the cakepops put into individual cellophane packets with a twisty-tie.
-you can order a special display stand which will be decorated according to your theme and will include a sparkler. When you are ready to serve the cakepops -all you have to do is remove the cakepops from the box and place into the designated holes in the stand.
Or if they are "sitting cakepops"just arrange them neatly on the display stand or a platter.
