Local Buzz: Cake Pops

The newest thing in bite-sized baked goods.

Move over, cupcakes, there’s a new treat trend sweeping the nation— cake pops. These bite-sized bits of cake on a stick are easy to eat (no plate or utensils required), provide portion control for the health-conscious and make great favors for parties.

Luana Woods, president of Cakepops for You (908.531.3241, cakepopsforyou.com), hand-makes and designs each of the pretty pops she sells online and in the Chestnut Delicatessen in Ridgewood, a business she owns with her husband, Bill. “It’s time-consuming, but I really enjoy it,” says Woods who creates the pops by crumbling cake, mixing in frosting to bind it together, forming it into a ball, dipping it in chocolate, then decorating each one. “It’s artistic and every cake pop is a creation.”

Cakepops For You are also available at Mango Jam and Araya Rebirth in Ridgewood and at the New Jersey Children’s Museum in Paramus.
