It’s definitely time to start thinking about one of the most wonderful times of the year and that’s Halloween. Right now is the best time to start entertaining thoughts about costumes, party planning, and getting your hands on the creepiest sweets. Cake pops are the biggest sensation in the cake industry since cupcakes, so be sure to serve these Halloween Cake Pops at your big monster bash.
Each cake pop is intricately decorated and made with top-quality ingredients. Even though they are a bit of a splurge, attempting to produce the same results by making them from scratch and using the same ingredients would make anyone’s hair fall out and skin crawl.
Handmade at the artisanal bakery Sweet Lauren Cakes in San Francisco, these imaginative cake pops are a distinctive, conversation-starting treat. Each cake pop is baked from scratch with premium ingredients like Guittard chocolate, Ghirardelli cocoa and Strauss Creamery butter, sourced from neighboring Bay Area producers. Each cake pop starts with moist, baked-from-scratch cake that is broken into crumbs and then rolled with fluffy cream cheese–based frosting. Each pop is hand-dipped in chocolate to create a delectable shell, then individually wrapped and tied with a colorful ribbon.
Choose from three whimsical, hand-rendered, Halloween-inspired designs, each piped onto the shell by hand and each featuring a unique flavor: orange pumpkins (chocolate cake), ghostly mummies (vanilla bean cake), and black cats (red velvet cake). Each set of six pops is packed in a gift box that doubles as a serving stand.
- 2” diam., 8” tall (including stick).
- Made in USA.
- A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
By ordering all three designs, you will get to try three different cake flavors and they will look spooktacular together on display. They could be used as decorative accents atop a bigger cake, if you anticipate a big crowd haunting your mansion.
Biting into the black cat is the most dramatic as it’s made of red velvet (or you can call it blood-tinged) cake. The orange fairytale pumpkin is filled with delicious chocolate cake and the mummy pop is vanilla bean, of course.
A box of six Halloween Cake Pops is $35 at Williams-Sonoma. Note that each box includes only one variety of the three cake pops. Each pop is individually wrapped, tied with a ribbon and ready to give as a gift.
In case you would like to make your own cake pops, you can get a little help from the Cake Pops Kit and the Cake Pop and Donut Hole Bakery.
Thanks so much for the lovely write up Patra! You’re so great with words, we just love your description of biting into the red velvet cake pops 🙂
