10 Minutes with Pop Bakery

We first stumbled across cake pops when I (Taimar) was planning my 21st birthday party. After extensive research and hours on blogs (which if your planning a wedding I’m sure your familiar with) I found the new cupcake! With celebrities and big events making these cake pops the next big confectionary trend! I had a selection of the yummy pops decorated with flowers like the ones pictured above. We interviewed Claire from Pop Bakery in London to find out how you can incorporate these sweet treats into your wedding…

1. For those who don’t know, what are cake pops?

Cake POPs are balls of cake and icing mixed and dipped in candy and painted to perfection

2. Describe a day in the life of a cake pop baker.

Wake up and answer my emails for an hour before my other cake poppers get in, mum then prepares all the balls having baked the cakes the night before, we then all begin shaping and dipping finally paint all our little POPs in the afternoon after a lovely homemade lunch

3. How long does it take you to complete a batch of cake pops, including decorating them?

One batch of 8 POPs, can take 4 hours if you included baking time, but if from a ready cake ball the shaping dipping and painting ranges from 30 mins to 1 hour depending on the difficulty of the POP.

4. What are your most popular designs?

Most popular designs are things that people recognise probably like hello kitty and angry birds, my faves are all the animals we do, from monkeys to unicorns!

5. Have you done many wedding cake pops? And can they be used in place of the traditional wedding cake?

POPs are great as an alternative to a big boring wedding cake, they are a great focal point to your reception and handy that you don’t need to clear away pla tes etc. we make lovely bride and grooms and miniature wedding cake POPs.

6. How can you display the cake pops at a wedding?

We make big displays made from polystyrene and in the colour of your wedding scheme, simple but effective

So now you know all about cake pops will you choose to have them instead of a traditional cake, or as a midnight feast for your guests?
