Cake Byte: Cake Pops by Stick & Pop, NYC

Cake Pop Wants to know where its face went.Dear Stick&Pop,

I don't want to be to forward, because I just met you, but I think I love you. But no, I don't want to break up my marriage. Because you see, Mr. CakeSpy loves you too.

What we propose is that you leave NYC and move to Seattle, live in our spare bedroom, and instead of paying rent, give us an endless supply of your delicious cake pops.

Please, consider it.

OK, so the preceding is a slight dramatization of actual events. We haven't invited the owners of Stick & Pop to live with us--yet.

But after each bite of their delicious pops, we're coming closer and closer. Not convinced? Well, read their bio and you might come a few steps closer:

French Culinary Institute graduate, Jacki Caponigro, and design professional, Christy Nyberg, launched Stick&Pop in New York in the Fall of this year. The pair has crafted a menu of 12 delightfully creative flavors that are as fun to look at as they are enjoyable to eat.

The eye-catching flavor, Darling (marble cake dipped in white chocolate and covered in sugar sprinkles), made a splash as The Savoy Hotel re-opened in New York—the treats were covered in gold and silver sprinkles to announce the occasion.

The diversity of flavors on the menu though, show that Stick&Pop is not relying on the novelty of a new “food-on-a-stick” but instead putting flavor and creativity at the helm. Johnny Cakes, for example, is peanut butter cake dipped in dark chocolate covered in pretzel and sea-salt and Griswald is essentially a S’more on a stick.

These cake pops are hands down some of the best I've ever tasted. The interior cake is decadently moist and buttery, and the candy coating is firm but not to the point of cracking and hurting the roof of your mouth--and each is so adorably decorated that you can't help but fall in love a little bit, just looking at the packaging.

Favorites so far? The "Darling" (marble cake, rolled in white chocolate and coated in sprinkles); the "Birthday Cake" (buttery cake coated in dark chocolate, with sprinkles); and of course, the "Johnnycake" (peanut butter cake coated in dark chocolate, with pretzel coating).

Seriously, I don't know what else to say other than these pops are a good investment. Lucky you if you live in NYC and can access them easily; even if you're not, they're worth the splurge for a special event.

Dear CakeSpy & Co.,
The smile on our faces is at least as big as Mr. CakeSpy's! You have truly made our day! We couldn't be happier that you enjoyed the pops--a CakeSpy smile is like winning Oscar gold. Wow! Thank you thank you!

Huge smiles!
Jacki & Christy
I totally agree. These little bundles of joy are so delicious and adorable. It's hard to find cake that really looks as good as it tastes! It's the perfect size too - filling but not overkill.

Great review for a great product!

I must say, these definitely look delicious, and the packaging is gorgeous enough to impress anyone. Unfortunately I live in a different country so all I can do is salvate until I make a trip to the US and taste these delicious goodies

Well done ladies.. and congratulations on an excellent review.

The love these two put into these pops is truly amazing. I have ordered for work events and holiday parties and they exceed my expectations every time. I highly recommend them for an event or a gift for your sweetie for Valentines Day! I also live in LA and there are a few similar companies here but none of them are even close to as good! it is worth paying the delivery charge x1000 and I love the packaging!! Yay for Stick & Pop!
