Custom Cake Pops grew out of Ashley Skiles’s search for a simple way to treat her coworkers. They expressed such ardor for the moist, decorative bites that she wrote a resignation letter in frosting and devoted herself to baking full time. At her bakery, she prepares orders of a dozen pops in five flavors, including a Southern-style yellow cake compatible with any of her cream-cheese, fudge, or sweet-cream frostings. Ashley thrills in the decoration of her confections to client specifications. After perching them on lollipop sticks, she might arrange them in a vase with a burst of sprinkles or pastel drizzles of icing.
