WARM/HOT WEATHER SHIPPING: Any time the weather here/there/along the way will be 70-degrees or warmer, there is a high risk of the cake pops (and their chocolate coating) melting during transit. To prevent that, you can ship with ice packs & expedited shipping, for an additional cost (determined by your zipcode & number of cake pops being shipped). The ice packs will last about 24 hours, so if you choose a 2-day or longer shipping method, the ice will have melted by the end of the first day of transit. The ice packs are $5 each, which accounts for the actual cost of the pack as well as the additional cost associated with the added shipping weight. It also includes special insulated packaging to keep the ice packs (and cake pops!) cool as long as possible. Usually, I recommend 1 pack per 12-18 cake pops, unless it's really hot!

I'm a repeat customer and will never order cake pops from anyone else!!! Every time I receive my orders they arrive perfect and exactly when requested! They taste incredible and look amazing! My most recent order was for my family to kick off the football season! We are huge Dallas Cowboys fans and I requested team helmets (which Becca has never done before). Becca was sweet enough to make them and we couldn't be happier!!! They look absolutely awesome!!

About

Scratch-baked, hand-sculpted cake pops. Tiny, tasty art...on a stick! :)

Over Christmas break (from my career as a middle school art teacher) in 2010, I purchased Angie Dudley's book "Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats" (available on www.bakerella.com), because I was amazed by the photography I saw in the online previews...and also because I don't need much of an excuse to purchase cute craft, baking, or (food) decorating books! Once the book arrived, I excitedly studied the photos, instructions, and tips, and finally put them to use for a coworker's birthday a few weeks later. In honor of an elusive mouse that had made its home in her classroom (and was consequently driving her mad), I created mice and cheese slice cake pops...which she found hilarious. Months later, I made a few dozen Spring-themed cake pops to sell at a festival alongside my soldered glass jewelry, and everyone loved them (more than the jewelry!). The next summer, I made the decision to step away - indefinitely - from teaching, to begin Sweet Whimsy Shop, currently an online cake pops business, with dreams of more!

It is very important to me that everything I bake/make tastes as good as it looks. For that reason, I've chosen to bake everything from scratch (instead of using boxed cake mixes and canned frostings). To make my cake pops, I start by baking a full sheet cake (from flour, sugar, eggs, butter, milk, vanilla, baking powder, and salt....and a few other ingredients, depending on the flavor). Once the baked cake cools, I mix it with a from-scratch frosting (envision an entire frosted cake or cupcake being tossed into and mixed up in a mixer). The cake & frosting combo forms a pliable mixture that I sculpt (or roll) into the basic shape of the cake pop. That mini sculpture of "cake dough" is then placed on a lollipop stick, then carefully dipped into melted chocolate. Sometimes, I add decorations like sprinkles, sanding sugar, or candies, while the chocolate is still warm/unset. For other designs, the decorations or details are added after the chocolate has hardened/cooled. I often use melted chocolate to pipe details, in the same way a cake decorator might use a pastry bag to pipe icing designs on cakes.

Regardless of how/when each cake pop is decorated, the result is the same: a tiny, tasty, handmade piece of art. My cakes pops are not made in a mass-production, or mechanized process. I don't simply combine a boxed cake mix with eggs, water, and oil, then pour the solution into an electric cake pop maker or into circular cups in a baking pan, and then dip those "prefab" cake balls into chocolate. The process I've chosen is much more labor-intensive, with a greater commitment to quality, and with careful attention to detail. My clients value that kind of quality and recognize that they are getting so much more than "just" a cake pop. I love what I do, I take a lot of pride in how I do it, and I'm so very grateful for my faithful clients who support my craft and business!

Welcome to Sweet Whimsy!
Home to custom, original, sweet and very cute cake pops, cookie pops, and more!

All cake pops are baked-to-order, from scratch, using quality ingredients -- no boxed cake mix or canned frosting! Custom flavors and designs are always welcome. SO, if you don't see what you're looking for here, send me a message. I'd love to create a custom order just for you! If you have a deadline or specific event you need cake pops for, please check my current availability, posted in the Shop Announcement section, before you place your order.

I ship 2-3 day transit, via USPS Priority, but faster/expedited shipping can be arranged, if needed. I also offer free local pick-up in the Savannah area (within zipcode 31404)

Payment
Payment is accepted via PayPal or Direct Checkout (credit card), and full payment must be received before work on your order begins.
Please contact me ahead of time if you have a specific deadline, to be sure your needs can be met!

All purchases are nonrefundable.
Shipping
Please allow up to 4-6 weeks for your order to be baked and shipped, unless other arrangements have been made prior to purchase.

Free local pick-up is available year-round in the Savannah, GA area, within zipcode 31404. Please contact me before placing your order to make time/date/location arrangements.

From November through early April, I ship via USPS Priority (estimated 2-3 day transit to most places), but faster/expedited shipping can be set up if needed (contact me for a quote). It is too hot to ship (from Savannah, GA - where I live) during the spring, summer, & early fall months, unless cake pops are shipped overnight with ice packs (which can be arranged). And, please contact me before placing your order, if you have a specific event/deadline. Cake pops will stay fresh at room temperature for about 10 days. No need to refrigerate, but you should keep them out of heat (chocolate melts quickly!)

FYI: USPS Priority is not a guaranteed service. The 2-3 day estimate is just that: only an estimate, not a guarantee. 98% of the time, USPS Priority packages are delivered within that window. However, if your package arrives later, USPS will offer no compensation, nor will I, if I have shipped in accordance with the USPS Priority estimate for your zipcode.
Refunds and Exchanges
Lots of time, effort, and energy go into making every cake pop perfect, just for you! If you are unsatisfied with your cake pops, please contact me immediately, so I can fix the problem - and keep you a happy customer :)

I will make sure your sweet treats are packed with great love & care to ensure safe travel to your destination. For this reason, I cannot be held responsible for what happens to your package once the USPS or UPS (or FedEx) takes control of your package. If you would like to purchase insurance for your package, please contact me before placing your order.

Please also be aware that I cannot be held responsible for weather-related, or comparable, shipping delays. Likewise, I cannot assume responsibility for packages that arrive later than estimated, if shipped on time, as determined by the schedule set by USPS Priority. If you would like a guaranteed delivery service/day, please contact me to purchase the additional shipping.

Should you need to file a claim for damages, you will need photos as documentation of the damages. Additionally, KEEP YOUR BOX AND ALL THE PACKING CONTENTS. UPS may need to do an on-site inspection. If you discard your box (and/or the contents inside), UPS will automatically deny the claim (even if you have photographs).

Please photograph the following:

1. The outside of the box, showing the shipping label and all stickers attached. Be sure to show any damage to the outside of the box.

2. If you suspect damages inside (before you actually unpack the box), take a photo of the interior packaging, before you unpack the contents.

3. Once all cake pops have been unpacked, photograph the any damages. Line them up and photograph the entire collection at once. If only a few are damaged, group those together next to a group of the undamaged cake pops, and photograph both groups together, in the same photo.

4. Photograph close-ups of damages on individual cake pops.

*UPS CUSTOMERS, please read the list of specific photos that UPS will require:
1. A photo of the damaged item.
2. A photo showing the damaged merchandise, inside the original box, with all of the original cushioning (picture should show the placement of the merchandise and packaging inside the box)
3. A photo of the packaging material used inside box (e.g. bubble wrap, Styrofoam peanuts, cardboard dividers, etc.)
4. A close-up photo of the shipping label with tracking number (please zoom in enough to read the tracking number which usually begins with 1Z)
5. A close-up photo of the box manufacturer’s certificate (BMC), if available. The BMC is a round stamp that details either the bursting strength of the box or the edge crush rating of the box. The BMC is generally found on a bottom flap on the outside of a corrugated cardboard box.
6. & 7. Two photos displaying all 6 sides of the package (1 photo should display the top and 2 sides, the 2nd photo should display the bottom and the opposite sides).
8. Dimensions of the box including the package height, length, and width provided in the body of the email.

***Keep in mind that unless you have purchased insurance, you will be limited in what you can recover damages for. USPS Priority includes $50 insurance and USPS Express includes $100. UPS has a limited liability of $100. Both USPS & UPS offer the option to purchase more insurance (before the package is shipped). . Please contact me (before your package is scheduled for shipment) to purchase additional insurance ****
