Adventure Awaits

Ooh we’ve had a creative week at Dellipops!  In fact every order had some element that I’d never done before but hey, life is boring if there’s no challenge! Right? Try still thinking positive at 2am when your 3rd attempt at gluten free, Vegan doughnuts are the texture of burnt biscuits 😦   This weeks wedding cake pop favours were another first – hand piping chocolate in the shapes of continents to make the pops look like little globes for a lovely couple with a travel themed wedding reception after they tied the knot in Italy last week. I’m actually really pleased with how they turned out and, proving that prep is the key to success, after I printed some reference images of the earth viewed from space (honestly I really did) they were actually a bit easier to do than I’d imagined.

Globe Inspired Cake Pops – Travel Themed Wedding Reception

The cake we’ve made this week is for a man’s 65th Birthday, completely different than our usual chocolate drip cakes and I absolutely love it! The bottom tier is vanilla, strawberry and white chocolate with a pinata centre filled with his favourite sweets and the top tier is a ‘Mars Bar’ cake – chocolate fudge cake, milk chocolate ganache, dulche de leche caramel and sliced mars bars! It’s such a great tasting cake and a fantastic choice for a party (it keeps really well too and is awesome warm with ice-cream)

The outside of the cake is rustic finished white chocolate ganache with a handmade milk chocolate sailboat and anchor which is sailing on hand carved chocolate ganache waves. I’m so grateful to the client for letting me persuade her to have something bespoke rather than the usual sweetie topped candy and chocolate explosion drip cakes – although I do love making them too.

We also had a custom doughnut order for a wedding doughnut wall (and no I can’t make gluten free, vegan donuts – you’ll have to make do with my gf, v chocolate & caramel Muffins) My favourite is the salted caramel glaze with caramel frosting heart

It seems as if there’s been 2 themes running through everything … caramel and travel! I find travel themed party and wedding images really inspiring – I’d love to do a vintage travel photoshoot – I’ve already got the pinterest board ready!!!

Birthdays and Christmas – Poptastic December

This week it’s been lovely to have a reprieve from all the Christmas festivities, fayres and themed cake pops and make some pretty girly pops for a lovely young ladies birthday.

Pretty Birthday Cake Pops

I really like how these turned out … there was no real brief other than ‘girls birthday’ so I got the opportunity to make something I’d enjoy and to use my new frills and frosting mini cases by Talking Tables. They’d be great for any age birthday really or Mother’s Day or just afternoon tea .. any excuse for a cake pop really!

Like I said it was nice to take a break from making Xmas pops because I have made quite a few over the last few weeks .. a Christmas wedding  with a 100 festive pops and then I’ve done Xmas pud style cake pops for two Christmas fayres with Porridge & Pumpernickel.

There’s no orders now until the new year so I can concentrate on getting ready for the massive family Christmas we are hosting … maybe I’ll make cake pop place names?
