Cake Pops Are for Lovers: Valentine's Cake Ball & Pop Workshop

The first weekend in February, Objects of Confection and kathyphantastic teamed up for a Valentine's cake ball and cake pop workshop. You can call us Professor Cake Pop and Professor Cake Ball, respectively.

There was no background music this time, but there was some sort of small crane looming in the background. Luckily, it was a kind and quiet crane. Everyone was so focused on their treats that no one really noticed except me and Tina Phan.

Cake ball and cake pop enthusiasts each made pairs of love birds, conversation hearts, love cake balls, teddy bears, and tulips.

Apparently, this bear tried to attack me.

We had so many Valentine's themed sprinkles. Jessica from Objects of Confection thinks I might have a problem. I'll let you know if there's an intervention.

This graduating class of students in cake poppery included a cute couple who drove in from Houston and a cake ball-centric blogger, Cake Ball Addiction.

Above, me "in the zone." As you can see, I'm very passionate about cake pop decorating and am very intense. Haha.

Here I am channeling the energy of the cake pops and cake balls.

Some student work.

Five years ago, if someone were to tell me I'd be teaching classes on decorating baked goods in a repurposed Albertson's I wouldn't believe them. That said, I'm really happy it's happened.

Jessica from Objects of Confection and I are planning on an Easter cake ball workshop in April. Stay tuned for details.
