Like a political sign, food mounted on a stick often captures the attention of passersby when displayed in one’s front yard. Show flavor solidarity with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one dozen customized cake pops (a $25 value) with home delivery (a $5 value) from Cake Pop-It (a $30 total value). Cake Pop-It delivers to Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach counties.
The icing gurus at Cake Pop-It dunk moist orbs of stick-mounted cake in melted chocolate or creamy frosting, delivering each batch of individually wrapped treats directly to the customer’s doorstep. To craft a custom 1.5-inch-wide pop, kitchen wizards whip up batches of a secret family recipe batter in a host of distinct flavors, such as red velvet, german chocolate, or lemon. Then, patrons pick their favorite flavors, icings, and sprinkles to tailor their cake decoration, readying it for a gala appearance at a wedding, birthday party, or all-pastry fashion show.
Pops stay fresh for about two weeks in a sealed container at room temperature, or for thousands of years in the cold vacuum of space, though flavor retention may vary. Call at least a week in advance to place your order.
On a trip to Georgia after giving birth to her third child, Desiree Polazzo had her first taste of a bite-sized orb of cake that—despite her strict dieting to get back into pre-baby shape—had her hooked. Awed by the decadent treat, Desiree returned home to Florida and headed straight for her kitchen to experiment with a recipe of her own. She finally architected a dulcet, velvety cake pop that recaptured the excitement of that first Georgia pop, she opened Cake Pop-It to share her discovery with the community’s sweet teeth.
In the years since, Desiree has let her creativity take the reigns of her confection-crafting process, decorating each pop with a whimsical design or turning it into an edible character replete with a smiling face and a mysterious past. Cake Pop-It’s staff of bakers also forges other sugary nibbles including custom cakes and cupcakes with inventive flavors such as salted caramel, key-lime pie, and crumb cake.
