Pops! Pops! Pops! They are popping up everywhere! The “pop”ular trend these days is all about treats on a stick, especially cake balls. Just like the cupcake trend, these edible favorites have been around for a long time. Wilton has been showing cookies, candies, and petite cakes on sticks for years, but now it is highlighted even more due to the growing demand of this phenomenon for treats on a stick!
Wilton recently released a new publication, Pops! Sweets on a Stick, with hundreds of ideas for a wide range of pops! There are cereal treats, cake balls, petite cakes, and brownies to name only a few.
When I first began designing these edible projects, I was focused on fun celebrations for kids. I soon discovered that these treats are not just for the kids, but also for the kid at heart. Adults love them too!
Pops can be sophisticated as well! Monograms and other types of personalization can be added for weddings and engagement parties. They are also great for dessert when having friends over for dinner.
Name a theme for your party and we have a pop to support it! Cowboys, princesses, baseball, baby, bears, aliens, dolls, dinosaurs, the list can go on forever! Designing all these treats was so much fun. People ask me all the time, “where do you get your inspiration?“ The inspiration for this was endless. All I had to do was wander in party stores, paper goods stores and see what is trendy. Of course you can never go wrong with designing something with a face on it. The fun expressions should make you smile when you look at them, and we have plenty of characters to make you smile!
Holidays were a must to have in the Pops! book. We have bunnies for Spring, turkeys for Fall, Santa and his elves for Christmas, and of course Halloween would not be complete without having spooky treats to hand out to the kids!
Of course pops are fun to eat, but making them is equally as fun when using products created especially for the pops line. We have a wide range of pans, sprinkles sets, and dipping candies just to name a few. No need to worry about how to present these creations, Wilton has designed a line of giftable products. Mini treat bags, boxes, and stands help showcase any pop you make!
We are very excited here at Wilton to introduce our Pops! Book…I know you will be excited as well!
