Stocking Stuffers and Mixed Flavor Gift Boxes — view on Flickr

We’ve put together some special mixed flavor ribbon tied gift boxes, Chocolate and Vanilla Bean or Red Velvet and Vanilla Bean because we know that some people’s favorite flavor is BOTH!

Cake Pops make perfect Stocking Stuffers, especially when packed in our cute individual boxes and tied with a bow! Available in Red Velvet and Chocolate.

And of course, we have extra special Santa Hat, Christmas Tree, and Snowman gift boxes that you wont even want to wrap they’re so cute!

As long as you leave some cookies for Santa, it’s ok to eat all of these Red Velvet Santa Hat Cake Pops yourself! (of course sharing is nice too)

Gluten-Free Cake Pops Now Available!

While we’ve not been writing blog posts (oops!), we’ve been super duper busy creating new gluten-free recipes for all of our flavors! (Red Velvet, Cinnamon Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Lemon, Coconut, Caramel, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Hazelnut, Chocolate Mint, Gingerbread, and Brown Butter Pumpkin)

Having a sister with a gluten allergy, our owner, Lauren knows how hard it is to find yummy treats that are safe to eat.  And we don’t want anyone to have to go without eating a cake pop! :)  So she sought out to make the most delicious gluten-free cake pops around.  We hope you’ll enjoy this new addition to our menu!

Cake Pops at Carneros Inn, Napa

Mei and Stephen came to us back in November to start the process of ordering a cake pop display in lieu of a traditional wedding cake.  They were a lovely couple to work with and their wedding this July in Napa showcased what a truly special couple they are.   Kate Byars Photography  did a gorgeous job of capturing the joyful mood of the day.  And our cake pops were displayed on our custom white stand in a blue ombre design reminiscent of the bridesmaids dresses.  We used flowers from Maki at Viola Flowers to decorate the corners and we love how it all came together!
