Bakerella is so creative! These cake pops are part of their signature line of cake deliciousness on a lollipop, but are adorablely decorated for Halloween!! To see their entire selection, check out their website. I made these delicious little bites for a Halloween party last year and they were too cute to eat!
The mummys were my favorite — but the witches, spiders & pumpkins are on my list for this year!
The inner cake ball (Bakerella’s favorite to use is red velvet) is very yummy, but I must admit a bit more difficult to craft into these perfect little cake pops than I was expecting. I found a quick and easy solution to make these in lickity split time! (no pun intended…) Read more »

The search today for modern & pretty — but delightfully appetizing & divine — cupcakes is virtually endless. Cupcakes are the new wedding cake, dessert bar and afternoon snack. There are so many fabulous bakeries sprinkled about to satisfy the craving — but when Vanilla Bake Shop decided to divulge one of it’s best kept secrets, how to recreate the salivatingly sweet Raspberry Meyer Lemon Cupcake with Martha and her audience, I dropped everything to give it a try myself. Amy Berman (founder of the Santa Monica patisserie) was featured on The Martha Stewart Show after proving that her cupcakes were not only beautiful, but also extraordinarily finger-licking delicious!
Note: the Raspberry Meyer Lemon Cupcake is pictured top left in the picture below, the other delicious goodies shown are also all Vanilla Bake Shop.
After many an attempt to recreate such delectable finds on my own, I borrowed Amy’s recipe to make the (complicated but definitely worth it) treats for a friend’s beach baby shower.
While the pressed white sugar topping is clever (I’ll be using that again) I opted to swap it out for crushed graham crackers for a sun-kissed, sandy-beach cupcake topped with candy shells. (Another great hint after experimentation: try adding a whole raspberry into each filling hole with the lemon meyer concentrate – you’ll knowwhat I mean after you watch the video). For a link to a video of Martha and Amy assembling the mini creations — as well as the recipe — follow the jump. Read more »

Thank you to Bakerella for today’s mouth-watering recipe! These heavenly red velvet cake balls are just what the doctor ordered… I found these while searching for something that is both chocolatey and finger food-ish, so that my guests could manage a delicious dessert with just a napkin instead of balancing a slice of cake in one hand, a fork and drink in the other. Sounds messy… sure, but that’s okay! It’s definitely well worth it and an excellent substitute to cupcakes. For the recipe, check out Bakerella or Read more »
