Pop treats are a piece of cake

THEY’RE funky and cute and are about to take Warwick by storm.

Cake Pops and More are a little treat you can eat anytime and they are right on your back doorstep.

Creating wonders right here in Warwick is Rachael Atherton.

Mrs Atherton first saw the American craze online and thought she would give it a go herself.

“I’ve always liked decorating cakes, especially for my kids’ birthdays, so I decided to give it a go,” she said.

“After a couple of goes you work out what techniques work.

“What I love about them is that you can be as creative as you like.

“The possibilities are endless.”

A few weeks ago at the Jumpers and Jazz in July markets, Mrs Atherton opened her first stall selling her cake pops.

“They were very popular. I was so overwhelmed with the attention we received,” she said.

“I’m hoping to get around to a few different markets.”

She said friends had recommended setting up a stall at the rodeo.

“But I’m not sure how they will go out in the hot sun all day,” Mrs Atherton joked.

So, what exactly is a cake pop?

A cake pop is a bite-sized ball of moist, delicious cake blended with rich, creamy frosting, placed on a stick and dipped into a bath of melted chocolate or candy coated.

The cake pop is then decorated into many different designs using a variety of lollies, candy coated choc bits, modelling chocolate and other assorted treats.

All the cake pops are made fresh to order.

Cake pops are great for all occasions, such as kids’ birthday parties, hens’ parties, bridal showers and baby showers and even Christmas parties.

Mrs Atherton is currently working from home and would love the support of her local community.
