Baby Footprints

Baby Bottle

Baby Block

Baby Shower

Ideas for baby shower cake pops!


I didn't think drizzling cake pops would be hard. I mean, c'mon - Sesame Street and all those others with tons of details weren't that hard... but drizzling took a long time to finally get the hang of!

It's actually fun because it doesn't have to be perfect. Err... that perfect, haha.


Birthday cake pops for a pro BMX'er. His parents are pug lovers :)

Golden Snitch

The hardest of the bunch. I started working with gum paste, recommended by my friend, Elodia.

These turned out OK. I would've liked the gold to be more gold (OCD) but it has a really nice shimmer to it in the light.

I ended up having to take out the wings to reposition them to downward position so that the cake pop could fit in a treat bag. They kept falling off too. So frustrating but in the end, I'm happy with the results!

Sorting Hat


My favorite of the bunch. I tend to like the ones that take the longest/have the most elements to them.

Ginny Weasley

Harry Potter

Hair is made of fondant that I dyed myself. Next time, I will just buy black fondant because kneading is tiring!

I don't know why I am so obsessed with getting black to look SUPER black. I hate that black candy melts are really purple/grayish when you melt it. How do these people online get it to look so darn black?! It's seriously boggling my mind.

Same thing with fondant. It looked kinda purple and gray and black. I dunno. I think it's my OCD just trying to drive me crazy.

Harry Potter Themed

An order for a special 10-year old girl who just loves reading!

She identifies with Ginny the most because when she was a baby, she was born with red hair. How adorable is that?

Boxing Gloves

My friend hosted a boxing party this weekend and wanted some cake pops for the kiddies.

They are far from good. Nana always gives you the honest truth and asked me, "Why are you making Santa's gloves?" #fail

Sailor Moon

My first time working seriously with fondant. It's hard work! Definitely need more practice. Tootsie Rolls can only go so far.

Red with Black Sprinkles

I think I got these sprinkles on clearance at Target. They are so pretty - matte and not shiny like your average sugar sprinkles. Looks so much more lich su to me!

LMU Logo

LMU Graduate

LMU Graduation

Congrats to my cousin, Chi!

Star Sprinkles

Would've preferred the mini stars but they forgot to ship it with my order. Good thing I checked because a few other items were missing too!

Sign of a hoarder: when you don't know you're missing something until you actually need to use it, much later than when you originally purchased it.

Marine Corps Insignia

Marine Corps Hat 2.0

Not great, but better!


Marine Corps 2.0

Fixed the hat to be rounder, nixed the 3D insignia and just drew on, and sprinkled with stars.
