It's a New Year and so many exciting things are happening for The Cake Pop Company, LLC. To celebrate and ring in 2011 we are going to have a 1 Day Sale on our Classic Cake Pops! There isn't a discount code to enter, we're just lowering our price for New Years Day to $11 (get it? 2011....$11, tehehe) per dozen. We do ask that you limit your purchase to 2 dozen. Your special purchase will need to be used/shipped by January 31, 2011. This is our way to say Thank You for making 2010 a successful year for us. We could not have done it without you, our customers.
Now, on to some exciting news that some of you may or may not know about.......we will be moving soon, into our own facility and storefront! We are very excited and are ready to have room to grow and a storefront to service the "sweet" needs of Springfield. The plans have been approved by me and our landlord and now we are just waiting for the good people in the city building office of Springfield MO to approve them and issue the building permits. Once we get that, I'm sure that it won't be long until we can move. I have purchased new appliances, the new tile floor has been installed and the remaining details are being purchased and/or ordered this week. I can't wait to show you the progress.
We are planning on extending our product line and hope that some of the items that we will make and carry can be shipped nation wide along with our delicious Cake Pops. We will have some new Cake Pops to unveil and of course, there will be a Grand Opening party that is guaranteed to be the talk of the town. So, stay tuned for more details.

The Christmas rush is over, and what a rush it was. We were making Cake Pops around the clock from Thanksgiving until Christmas. I'm not joking, our average day was 16 hours in the shop, but some days it was 18 hours! We started the day after Thanksgiving with a huge Corporate order that we received from a major pharmaceutical company, 600 dozen to be exact. Yes, that is correct....600 dozen or 7,200 Cake Pops! 1,800 of those Cake Pops were the adorable little panda bears that are pictured. We recruited some of our customers/fans to help, as well as family members taking vacation time to help out. We couldn't have done it without our friends and family, that's for sure! It took us about 12 days to get this accomplished. The whole time that we shut down for this huge order, other corporate orders and individual orders started flooding in. Our long days and nights didn't end until Christmas Eve. Apparently, our Cake Pops were a popular gift to send to loved ones this year. We are thankful for each and every order and that you trust us with your gift giving needs.
We have exciting changes that will be happening in 2011 and I will be blogging more so that you can share in our growth and changes. We are moving into our own kitchen facility soon and will be opening a storefront. I will share the progress with you, as things change.
We hope that you had a lovely Christmas and want you to know that we appreciate YOU, our blog followers, as well as our Facebook friends and Twitter followers.
