Things You Should Know

If you’re wondering what cake pops are, a cake pop is…a ball of cake which has been fully cooked, crumbed and mixed with buttercream icing and then dipped in a chocolate or candy coating.  The texture of the inside of the cake pop is truffle- or cookie dough-like.

At cake pops boston, all of our cakes and buttercreams are made from scratch with no shortening, artificial ingredients/flavors or stabilizers. Cake pops are a delicious, adorable and tidy little dessert item. And, what can be better than cake on a stick???

Caring for your cake pops…cake pops should be stored in a cool, dry place. No refrigeration and also, you need to keep them out of the heat. Any temperature above 75F (and anything above 70F if in bright sunlight) will not be kind to your cake pops. They work best as an indoor treat during the warmer months.

The ups and downs of cake pops…cake pops are made in 2 presentations–pop down/stick up and pop up/stick down. Cake pops in the pop down/stick up presentation stand independently and look great displayed on trays or platters or at each place at a table. Cake pops in the pop up-stick down presentation lay flat or may be displayed in stands you may have. They can be displayed as an arrangement (see below) or laying in a basket, on a buffet or on each plate at a table. While both styles present very nicely, we suggest pop down/stick up and unwrapped for sweets buffets and desserts. Tags will work with either presentation.

Arrangements…cake pops in the pop up/stick down presentation, can be displayed in an arrangement. There are several examples in our gallery and on our Facebook page. There is an arrangement fee if we create the arrangement for you. Arrangements tend to be top-heavy so they must be secured during travel, so they don’t tip over.
