Major cake pop cuteness: mermaid tails, baby foxes, dinosaur and beer

Granted, the beer cake pops may not be quite as cute as the others, but they are still fun and all of these, to me, show just how creative, fun and unique cake pops can be (these would all also work as cupcake topper ideas). They’re all by ‘kCreative’ Cake Pops in San Diego, California, via their Facebook page. They can be reached at Kris at goodsbykcreative.com and you can find out more and order at goodsbykcreative.com.

Review: Heavenly Cupcake in San Diego

Heavenly Hat

While in San Diego, California, our Seattle-based stringer ELD Images and his wife Muffin D’Amour had a chance to visit Heavenly Cupcake, located on Sixth Avenue in the heart of the bustling Gaslamp District. They caught up with Jill Reilly, the co-owner, and her baking manager, Alex, to learn more about the story behind Heavenly Cupcake. 
A former graphic designer, Jill purchased Heavenly about a year ago, as a sister business to her Cute Cakes Shop, which opened in 2010. Since acquiring Heavenly, Jill, her husband Dave, and Alex, have worked tirelessly to raise the quality and consistency of the products at Heavenly, as well as the shop’s reputation, which suffered prior to the change of ownership. The steady stream of customers we saw during our visit is a testament to their success.

"Cinnabons"

Acum cateva saptamani mi-am adus aminte de unul dintre deserturile mele preferate: Cinnamon buns (Melcisori cu scortisoara) sau dupa numele original, “Cinnabons”. Cand lucram pe vas, in fiecare saptamana cand vasul ajungea in portul principal, in cazul acesta, San Diego, nu visam la nimic altceva decat la “Cinnabons”. Dupa o sesiune de shopping, cumparam un set de 6 bucati de astfel de melcisori cu scortisoara, ca sa imi ajunga 2 sau 3 zile pe vas. Am facut un frumos “research” pe net si cum niciodata nu sunt multumita de o reteta de la un capat la altul, am combinat 2 dintre cele gasite si am reusit sa creez o “clona” perfecta.
Deschid blogul meu de retete cu acest desert perfect: “Cinnabons”.

Ingrediente aluat:

-450-500 gr. faina (recomand 000)
-240 ml. lapte caldut
-2 oua
-100 gr. zahar
-80 gr. unt moale (lasat cu 2 ore inainte la temp. camerei)
