plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

If we were doing a candy buffet, I would so make a ton of these coated in red and orange.


They would be a perfect addition to anyone’s candy buffet for that matter, or even as a spread at a shower (wedding, baby, etc.). I’d love to make them for my shower, but it seems odd to make a dessert for your own shower (right?).

I think this version is adorable.


And, how great are these Relay for Life cupcake pops?


A friend of mine who works for the American Cancer Society would love those!

The recipe to make these is very easy, just takes a bit of time and patience (which I have).  SO, if you’re looking for some cupcake pops for your event, I’m your girl (shameless plug for my baking abilities, forgive me).  I’m not joking either (about me baking you these cake pops).

Are there any cute candy/cake/dessert ideas you want to incorporate into your wedding or shower?  Is there a must-have food you want to include or would want to?


  1. I was at a wedding and these were given as favors! Super cute idea!

    Do you have to buy a mold to make the circular cake pieces? And, I’d help you make them!

    I dont know how many friends you have that work at the American Cancer Society besides me, but I LOVE those!!! Those would be a huge hit at any and all of my Relays!! If there is a recipe, please send it to me… I know I have lots of bakers on my committees:)

    The recipe calls for almond bark, which you can obviously die whatever color you want.
