Alphabet block cake pops!

I made these alphabet block cake pops for a baby shower today. Sadly, I can't take credit for the idea, but I can take full credit for the execution! Thanks, Natalie, for such a great idea!

It is hard to tell with the glare on the wrappers, but the pops read "Congratulations," which is then followed by a moon + stars, a sun, and a red flower.

Here is a close-up of the non-letter blocks:

And a close-up of the first few letters:

I am very pleased with how they turned out. I was somewhat concerned about them looking square enough, but I think they came out well!

Last-minute baby shower cake!

This weekend, I was lucky enough to have a last-minute baby shower cake order for a baby girl! I received the call on Sunday night for a Monday afternoon party, and was happy to make a chocolate cake with vanilla frosting. I'm really starting to love the argyle pattern for cakes, and think it is just perfect for a baby shower event (or any other cake really!). It requires more math than I anticipated, but I'm glad I thought about that ahead of time, or it would have turned out to be an argyle disaster!!

The finished cake!

Like a dope, I didn't take any pictures of today's projects because I was running late. But...

Father's Day cake pops are now officially available at Parker & Otis in downtown Durham. There are Super Dad pops, #1 Dad coffee mug pops, and grill pops. Both vanilla and chocolate pops are available.

Also, we had a great turnout at the C+H neighborhood home tour and after-party. Thanks to all who came, and I hope you enjoyed the lemon blueberry cupcakes!
