Green Pops bring good luck...

We haven't actually proven that yet, but let us know if it's true.
I have lived "out west" for 13 years now but before I made my move, I grew up in a fantastic little city in Ohio called Dublin, Ohio. As you might imagine from the name of our town, it definitely has an irish flair. Our school mascot was a Shamrock and there was a HUGE St Patrick's Day ever year where you actually got "arrested" if you didn't wear green. So, in the spirit of the celebration of the irish .... we proudly introduce our cake pop for the green season...

St Patty's Day Pops ($30/dozen)
Green (Vanilla) cake dipped in sweet white candy and dusted with green sugar

Chocolate cake dipped in shamrock green candy and topped with mini white sprinkles.

Please give us a week's notice so we can get your order ready for the 17th! Order Now.

7 ways to use your green St Patty's Day Cake Pops:

Have a green cake pop with your green beer.
Hand them out to strangers on the street to pass along good luck.
Give a dozen to your clients to create a great green impression.
Send some to your special someone to show you care.
Let the kids bring them to give to their friends at school.
Serve them at your St Patrick's Day Party.
Bring them on your St Patrick's Day bike ride (I know I will!!)

Pops for lunch?

We were proud to be the "edible" sponsor at this past Wednesday's ABC Orange County's coordinators' luncheon at The Dock in Newport Beach. Lindsay Longacre of LVL Events was kind enough to invite us. Not only did we have an opportunity to showcase our cake pops for over 40 bridal consultants but also met some other fantastic entrepreneurs in the industry.
Kristy McTaggart of Artiface created some beautiful custom nametags and menus to match the violet and red theme of the luncheon.

The colors were chosen by Larrissa Rehder, owner of Inviting Occasion, a floral and event design company. Her eye for art and beauty, and innovative ideas helped her win the 2009 Association of Bridal Consultants Trendsetters Award. This was Just a Bite's first coordinators' luncheon and Larrissa was happy to lend a hand (and several display elements) to help us create a table of pops for the coordinators to see and try. Thank you Larrissa! If you are looking for an artist, not just a "florist", please check out Inviting Occasion.

Capturing all of these memorable touches was Joel of Studio EMP. You will see some samples of his work in this blog. Thanks Joel for catching these great pop shots!

Hosting this elegant and festive luncheon was Christine Overstreet, owner of The Dock. Although I have not had a chance to dine there, the atmosphere was intimate and beautiful, right on the water. The hors d'oeuvres chosen for the event were divine, strawberries on a skewer with spun sugar, eggplant tempura topped with ahi and caviar, and ceviche served on a silver spoon. I can't wait to go back! My favorite touch was the candy bar Christine had set up for her guests to take a final treat for the road.

Cake pops have been very popular for weddings. They are often used as escort cards. In additon, cake pop bouquets make beautiful centerpieces and can be customized to match the flowers and linens.
They are a unique addition to candy stations or even a substitute for the traditional wedding cake. They can be used as a sweet treat to tide over your guests prior to the ceremony or between the ceremony and reception.

Also a great favor with a personal thank you note from the couple either packaged individually or in boxes of 2-4 pops labeled with the bride and grooms names and wedding date. Do you have an idea we haven't mentioned??? Tell us!
