Hanging Cakes: Here to Stay?

With Wedding Season in full bloom and couples wanting show stopping cakes, Hanging Wedding Cakes are surely making the rounds.  Even Big Bang Theory Star, Kaley Cuoco, had a Hanging Wedding Cake to wow her guest at her New Year’s Eve nuptials.

Gourmet Oreos: Yes or No?

Have you ever heard of a gourmet Oreo?  We recently just discovered this lovely treat here at Mix-N-Match Bake Shop and we wanted to see what all of you thought of this idea.  Are gourmet Oreos a trend that will fade away as time goes on or are they here to stay?

yes-no-maybe

Incase you haven’t heard of these little wonders let us pretty much sum them up for you.  A gourmet Oreo is a Oreo cookie dipped in either white, milk, or dark chocolate and topped with different garnishes such as sprinkles, fresh fruit or piped icing.  They can be quite elegant and we have seen some gourmet Oreos that were down right stunning! You can even get them on a stick, much like a cake pop.  We’re thinking they could be a great addition to any events dessert table.  We might just be a little pro-gourmet Oreo! What do you think about this   wonderful concoction?  Here a few splendid designs we have come across.  Please follow the link below each image for more information.

A cake pop is a dense ball of cake, generally coated with chocolate or some other kind of sweet shell.  They also are placed on a type of lollipop stick.  Cake pops offer the fun and versatility of a lollipop, with the scrumptiousness of cake, but maintains a look of sophistication. They also can be topped with a variety of decorations such as sprinkles, fondant designs, sugar crystals and much more!
