Cake Pops for Beth Part I

My beautiful friend Beth is doing this amazing thing.
For her birthday she's putting on an art show that combines photography and poetry and is inviting all her friends to come and share in what she's calling: 26 Secrets.
What a fantastic idea and I'm so proud of her. {It's tomorrow night!}

So when she asked me if I'd contribute to the night by bringing something - maybe, possibly cake pops - of course I said YES!

So I hunted around on the interwebs and thought about it because these could not just be any old cake pops. These needed to be classy and artsy and downright delicious.

And then I found it; an old link I had saved in my bookmarks.

Earl Grey Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream


So I whipped up the cake

And I even used my David's Tea Cream of Earl Grey loose tea. I pondered whether I should grind up the tea or not, but in the end, opted for leaving them as is.
I baked and crumbled up the cake

And then made the most amazing lemon buttercream you've ever tasted. I mean, SO GOOD.

Lemon zest and fresh lemon juice. So. Lemony. *I die*

And then probably the most time consuming part. Mixing and rolling the cake into little "pops".
And I didn't take a picture of that because it was almost midnight and I was tired and Noah had been crying on and off for about an hour.

Tonight I'll be dipping the pops into chocolate and hopefully get to bed at an earlier hour.
Here's hoping!

{And bring on the coffee!}


  1. the amount of love that i know is baked into these cake pops brings tears to my eyes.

    and i'm not going to lie, i am giddily anticipating this marriage of lemon buttercream and earl grey flavours.


  2. looking forward to seeing and tasting these amazing cake pops! Thank you for blessing Beth in this way.


I love hearing from you!
