One question that my mom and I are always asked by our customers at the bakery and our customers in other states is “When are you going to start shipping your cake lollipops?” Well we listened too all of your thoughts and suggestions and being someone who doesn’t jump into anything without thinking it through and coming up with some cute packaging to go along with it :), we decided last year to start the BIG endeavor of shipping desserts across the country and now finally it has come to fruition.
We of course enlisted the help of my talented friend Karrie Pyke, from Karrie Pyke Designs, to come up with package design and then the talented Kristin Eldridge shot some gorgeous photos of our product for us, and lastly my amazing husband Tim, from Skip Agency, brought it all to life through our new website…www.sweetandsaucypops.com!!!
We at Sweet & Saucy Shop couldn’t be happier to announce that you can now purchase our cake lollipops in boxes of 12 or 24 whenever you want, no matter where you are from in the United States. We would love for you to check out our new site and of course we think that our cake lollipops would be the perfect Christmas present under any tree this holiday season! My mom and I thank you so much for your support over these last few years as our business has grown and we are excited to open this new chapter of our business!

I thought I would share some new cake designs we’ve done lately! Up first one of my favorites from this last summer. A peacock feather bohemian style head piece inspired the cake design. We made the cake head piece all out of sugar and then did a white on white pattern for the base of the cake to give it some texture.
I just love the color palette for this cake.
Up next an example of a romantic wedding cake with touches of blush pink and white sugar roses cascading up the front.
This cake is definitely more modern with a bold color and pattern on the base tier and then a sugar peony we colored silver.
This is one of my favorite all white on white wedding cakes…it’s so delicate and romantic looking!
This next cake was inspired by a cake design from The Caketress that one of my clients loved and then we put our own spin on it to incorporate her wedding style and design.
Last but not least a sampling of cakes to mimic the iconic “Cakes” painting by Wayne Thiebaud. Irene did a great job with all of these cakes and the client loved them!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog! Definitely let us know which cake is your favorite!

I was lucky enough to work on another fabulous wedding with some of my best friends! Gabriel Ryan Photographers shot the gorgeous images, Jesi Haack Design planned & designed it, and Carissa from JL Designs did the amazing florals. I love the modern look of everything with all the bright pops of colors.
Pitbulls & Posies came up with the fun invitations…
The alter & ceremony setting is just breathtaking…love the orange trees!
Carissa’s floral design always gets me…
Jesi created another amazing backdrop for us and we loved it!
These Passion Fruit Shot Glass desserts are one of my favorites that we make!
For the small two tier cake we wanted a lot of texture, but white on white and then accented it with a bright orange sugar flower on top!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!

Have you ever wondered what a laid back, fun wedding in Palm Springs would look like!?! Well look no more…I had the pleasure of working with the team from Jesi Haack Design. Melanie headed it up and I think the shoot turned out fabulous! Make sure and check out the bottom of the post to see all the amazing vendors I worked with on this one! Carlie from Gabriel Ryan Photography took the perfect photos for us…thanks Carlie!
For the cake they wanted something really fun, bold, and different. Melanie threw out the idea of doing something with donuts and then I just ran with that idea. I absolutely love the “ombre” color trend right now so I thought I would tie that into the design too. I bought mini Krispy Kreme donuts and dipped them in different shades of orange icing and then put tiny white sprinkles on top. Overall I was pretty happy with the fun cake!
