Cake Pop Gift Sets on Sesame!

Recently, our owner Lauren was contacted by Sincerely, the company that launched the mobile app “Sesame,” to curate a chocolate lovers gift box for their shoppers.  If you haven’t downloaded their app yet, go HERE and do it now! :)  They’re making shopping on your phone a breeze with fabulously curated themed gift boxes to take the work out of gifting.

We received an example of our “Chocolate Lover’s” box last week and oooh’d and ahhhh’d for about an hour.  First of all, the box it arrives in is so beautiful (we’re suckers for well thought out packaging!)  Once we got over the packaging, we all enjoyed the yummy chocolate treats inside, salty sweet caramel toffee from Vosges, dark and smooth chocolate bar from Chocolove, Marich’s natural chocolate strawberries, and of course, our yummy and rich cake pops in chocolate and rich red velvet!  All perfect for Valentines Day!

A Foreign Cinema Wedding with Sparkly Cake Pops!

Foreign Cinema in San Francisco’s edgy Mission neighborhood is definitely one of our favorite spots in the city.  This past fall, we had the opportunity to work with a lovely couple who chose to host their reception there.

Michelle Walker of Michelle Walker Photography, one of our favorite bay area photographers, captured these gorgeous shots of the night below!

During our initial tasting, Lauren explained that their interests included writing, biology, Shakespeare and of course cake pops!  She wanted these elements, along with her rich fall colors to really come through on her dessert table.  So we got to work!  Exploring thrift shops for old books, test tubes, etc. we found our props for the dessert display that would come to be one of our favorites of 2012.

We contacted Foreign Cinema’s favorite florist Natalie Bowen to create a few bundles of flowers to decorate our three tiered natural wood cake pop stand.  We loved how the rich orange flowers brought out the burnt orange sparkle on our pops!  She was even able to match the bridesmaid’s bouquet and dress.

Oranges, corals, and golds set the tone for the evening.
