Let's introduce Y'all to the rave of the moment; Cake on a stick or Cake Pop for short...

By Kemi Mobuse - Thursday, July 28, 2016

If you haven’t heard of cake pops, you’re probably living under a rock — maybe near the one I live under. Lol!

Cake pops, if you don’t know, are basically balls of cake and frosting on a lollipop stick. Cake crumbs are mixed with icing or chocolate, and formed into small spheres or cubes in the same way as cake balls, before being given a coating of icing, chocolate or other decorations and attached to lollipop sticks.Cake pops can be a way of using up leftover cake or cake crumbs.

Coming across this new rave on IG, was an eye opener for me that; the events industry is evolving daily and growing furiously. No longer, are desserts  limited to small chops , cupcakes and ice creams, it has actually extended to include waffles, cake pops and many more mouth watering sweets.

KMB in the usual fashion had a fun chat with the CEO of this unique brand and it makes for a good read…

KMB: Can we meet you?

Cakepoptastic: My name is Anita Augusta Boyd

KMB: What is the inspiration behind your brand Cakepoptastic?

Cakepopstatic: As a child, thanks to my mother’s love for baking, I grew up around delicious freshly baked dessert treats. Although it was only about a year ago my passion for baking re-ignited I knew I definitely had a passion for eating them and was always up for trying new treats! 

In early 2013 I came across cakepops in the U.S. and thought I had discovered the next best thing after sliced bread! Might I add it became very apparent how much it was taking America by storm? After several months of trial and error plus a lot of words of encouragement and support from family and friends I realized I could actually introduce this fresh, creative take of dessert treats to the Nigerian market. Fast-forward a couple of months, CAKEPOPTASTIC was born!
