If you like your cakes delicious, cute and stylish, then you’ll love cake POPs – the delicious little treats designed by one of London’s most fashionable bakeries.
Cake POPs are here to stay. Since launching onto the cake scene a couple of years ago, these moist cakes on sticks have been a huge hit amongst anyone with a sweet tooth. In her second book, POP Party, Clare O’Connell presents 40 brilliant ideas to create the perfect party for any occasion, including brand new cake POPs designs, pretty party ‘props’ and decadent layer cakes. Everyone will love the cute tortoise POPs, or why not make the quirky science POPs for a clever friend? Make the corpse bride and groom POPs for Halloween, or a beautiful ruffle layer cake with Swiss meringue icing for a special birthday, and decorate your event with colourful paper pompoms and fun tassel garlands. The basic techniques section will tell you everything you need to know for your cake POP journey, and each recipe and project has clear, step-by-step photography and easy-to-follow instructions – so you’ll be cake POPping in no time!
Clare O’Connell has always loved baking, and after undertaking work experience at a combined bakery and chocolate shop, she decided to start selling her own cake POPs. She runs her business, the Pop Bakery, from her family home in West Hampstead, London, and supplies cake POPs to Harvey Nichols and the Sanderson and St Martin’s Lane hotels. Clare was also recently commissioned to provide Cake POPs for a Topshop launch party in Bath in southwest England and will be working with Topshop on similar events across the UK.
