Cake pops, as the name suggests are bite-sized cake bits styled as a lollipop.
A Revolutionary Dessert:
I call cake pops a revolutionary dessert. It changed the game for cake industry forever. It’s twenty first century, pure chaos. With increase in obesity, number of health conscious people has increased too. Cakes are a comfort food for most of us but once you start eating, you can’t stop before it’s too late. No one wants to binge 3000 Kcals in one go. This is the reason most people avoid bringing cakes to their homes altogether.
Cake pops solve this issue. Its controlled portion size lets you eat the cake for comfort without binging on the extra calories.

When cake pops first came into the market, no one imagined that this dessert would soon become a must have for all parties and celebrations. Whether it’s a wedding, birthday, baby shower, or a gender reveal party cake pops are there.

Vegan Cake Pops:
Cake pops have found their way into the vegans’ hearts as well. Even they couldn’t resist its charm but vegan cake pops are made with vegan butter and almond milk.
Custom Packaging for Cake Pops:
Most custom themed cake pop businesses are home owned and the orders are placed online and later shipped through a courier service. Cake pops are placed over a stick, just like lollipop, this makes them prone to breakage.
Just think for a moment, you got an order for mickey & Minnie themed cake pops. You fulfilled the order with exceptional precision and the cake pops look amazing. You shipped the order in a regular box. The next day you receive a complaint from the customer about broken cake pops and then they go ahead a leave you a bad review online. This is the biggest nightmare of an entrepreneur owning a bakery business.
This is why it is important to invest in proper packaging of cake pops before shipping the order.
Bags and wraps:
The first step in packaging a cake pop is bags and wraps. You can use:
- Eco wraps
- High clarity wraps
- Heat sealable wraps, or
- Paper bottom wraps
Once you seal the wrap around the cake pop, you must hide the seal/knot. You can use:
- Twist ties, or
- Pre-tied bows
To attach at the knot or sealing point. This will not only hide the knots but make the packaging more attractive as well.
