Imagine serving a platter of these cheery flowers in edible pots at your next cookout or selling them at the spring bake sale table!

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

There is nothing more exciting or nail-biting than the Kentucky Derby, also known as “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” – and that’s no exaggeration! Although I’ve always wanted to attend the Derby, hosting a Saturday afternoon get-together to cheer on my favorite thoroughbred is the next best thing. The Derby also combines my two other favorite things: mint juleps and fancy hats! For my Derby party this year, I couldn’t think of a better treat than Mint Julep Treat Pops, outfitted with their own fancy hats and bowties just for the occasion. (more…)

Since Cindy is an avid gardener, I wanted to gift her with an edible flower bouquet – Voila – Cake Pops! Sure, I could have taken the easy way out and ordered flowers, but gifting homemade treats that come from the heart is more meaningful. (more…)
