The wedding industry continues to surprise, with its ability to innovate in every area. Even with something as simple as cake. What on earth is a pop cake?
Pop Cakes. The lovechild of a cake and a lollipop.
Essentially they are a single cake-y bite on a convenient stick, that can be covered in a myriad variety of frostings, flavours, and centres to cater for any tastes.
Where would you use them in a wedding?
Perhaps as a post dinner treat, potentially to accompany coffee. Perhaps instead of a traditional tiered cake. Half the time nobody eats wedding cake. At least with a one-bite option you know they won’t go to waste.
I have already joked about how you’d cut a cupcake tower. It’s safe to say trying to cut these stick cakes would be an impossibility …
If you’re thinking about using them for your day, here’s some inspiration.
Pop Cakes can err towards the kitsch. Particularly if you choose vibrant, multi-colour creations like these // via Pop Cakes.
More kitsch still is a pink sugar-coated, hundreds and thousands topped creation // via Tumblr
You could choose an upside-down version in a miniature cupcake holder // via Passion for Baking
They’re found in every colour, like vivid blues and browns // via Tumblr
Or sherbert-y pinks and lemons // via Tumblr
Or, with glittery purples, reds and pinks // via The Mimosa Bakery
