Shipping and service were great. Those that received the gift reported that they looked okay, but did not taste good. I couldn't say whether it was that cake pops don't ship well or that this product just isn't tasty. They were consumed 3-4 days after manufacture.
Making your day sweeter one bite at a time!
Faye’s Cake Pops was actually started to make my husband happy! I had officially “retired” from a 9-5 job after our 4th child arrived in 2011. And to keep myself busy, I started playing with the new cake pop trend. The first month or so was pretty disastrous, but the kids loved eating them no matter what they tasted like! I have never remained still for long, and I found that baking was very calming to me. This in and of itself, surprised everyone, because when I met my husband I was working 80 hour weeks with the Nashville Predators, and not only did I not bake, I didn’t cook dinner or even grocery shop! But low and behold, I started to love baking, and although the cake pops were not beautiful, they were delicious. I started making them each weekend to take out on our boat for friends and family to enjoy. Around the same time, a few different companies dropped their cake pops off at Mere Bulles, were I work once in awhile, and they were pretty, but so dry and flavorless. At that time I decided that I may have something, because mine were moist and delicious!
I started to get the random email or FB message each Monday or Tuesday with friends wanting cake pops for this or that. I was so proud that I just kept making them. Then one day, my husband informed me that we would go broke if I kept making cake pops for everyone for free. And Faye’s Cake Pops (Faye is my middle name, and used by the people closest to me) was born! I created a FB page and an Etsy account, for no other reason than to have a set price out there. That way if a friend wanted cake pops, they wouldn’t be offended when I told them how much it would be.
I was fortunate that the Mere Bulles Food Truck was willing to sell Faye’s Cake Pops. I initially started with their signature carrot cake flavor, and then just kept trying new flavors. Some flavors sell much better than others. Wedding cake is the most popular flavor, it is white cake with buttercream frosting. But my teenage son and his friends swear that Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is the best. The sky is really the limit on flavors. Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is the toughest to work with, but it is my favorite to consume.
The question I get most often is “Do you use those cake pop bakers?” The answer is “no”, but don’t be ashamed if that surprises you, 2 of them ended up at the Goodwill that my mom bought me a few months ago! The reason those don’t work, is they actually just bake cake into a round mold, and hope that it stays round. But in reality, how many people bake a cake, only to watch it fall? You are dealing with the same thing.
An actual Faye’s Cake Pop is made in Bakerella fashion… I make a cake from scratch and let it cool before crumbling it up into tiny pieces and mixing it with the frosting.
I think what really sets Faye’s Cake Pops apart from other Cake Pop companies, is the flavor. I have tasted many cake pops, and they just are not as moist and full of flavor as mine are. Although, some of them are true works of art! I have seen cake pops in the shape of a horse, and although it was beautiful, I can only imagine that it tasted like modeling clay! I have some fun designs, and love being challenged with new ideas. But if you are hoping to get a replica Louis Vuitton purse cake pop, I may not be your girl. On the other hand, if you need monogrammed cake pops for your wedding, that the guest’s love, I have you covered!
