HollyPop

A Lollipop from Miss Holly, the Hollypop!

We’ve been playing around with our version of cake pops for several months. I had to try out several different coating chocolates until I settled on an Italian one which tastes & performs great. The cake ball that gets coated is quite simply our scratch cake (approximately the amount in a Mini cupcake) mixed with our homemade butter cream icing. We tried dozens of flavor combinations and came up with a handful that we love. Still experimenting so be prepared to be surprised! Most follow the descriptions of our cupcakes of the same name. Some, like the Red Velvet and Carrot had to be modified to include white chocolate butter cream, since cream cheese icing did not work well with white chocolate coating. The end product is quite a contrast from the cupcakes of the same name. I think they are more like truffles than our cupcakes, being very dense and rich. I love the intensity, however my husband prefers the much lighter cupcake versions. You be the judge!

Thanks for your Sweet! support!

XO Miss Holly

Sweet Loves Lily!

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

Lily Elmore is not your average 18 year old. This past Saturday Lily hosted a pre-prom/ 18th birthday Lily Pulitzer themed celebration at her house! In lieu of gifts this unselfish 18 year old is celebrating her good fortune by not asking for birthday presents. Instead Lily asked all her friends and family for monetary donations which would be given to the Florida Hospital for children. Guests celebrated both events with Sweet! Lily Pulitzer themed cupcakes. Flavors included Strawberry, Chocolate Mouse, Boston Cream and Chocolate Strawberry. YUM! Lily also wanted to give a special thanks to her mother for making this day possible, and all the love and support. Happy Birthday Lily!!!
