One of my girlfriends just had her second baby , a beautiful little girl named Stella . After the baby was born I wanted to do something nice for her and her family. I figured practicing my cake pop making and decorating would be a fun idea! I decided I was going to make her baby rattle cake pops! I wanted the inside of the cake pops to be pink and the outside to be a darker pink. I chose to use strawberry cake mix, cheesecake frosting and vanilla chocolate melts. They came out yummy and really cute. I was proud of my rattles!
An obstacle that I have been trying to overcome is figuring out how to ship the cake pops so they will stay fresh, but at the same time stay cost effective. I browsed some other cake pop websites and they charge more for the shipping of the pops then the actually pops! It was $65 for one dozen cake pops plus shipping!!! I mean really?!! Who can afford that , and even if you could $65 is a little ridic for 12 cake pops !! Don’t you think???
When my friend received her baby rattle cake pops she told me they were a tiny bit smashed, and some of the balls fell of the stick which means they melted. She made it super clear that they were really good and her son could not eating them, however I couldn’t help feeling disappointed in the shipping of the cake pops. Tomorrow I am sending out four different boxes of cake pops to my friends, and trying out different methods of shipping. Stay tune i will figure it out !
Please leave any advice you have for shipping baked goods! Thank you and I hope you all had a fun and safe holiday weekend.
