Cute for a Cure!

I’ve made a lot of Cupcake Pops. Bunches. But these are the first ones that could make a difference.


I started out making some with brown bottoms.


Then I threw in some white ones.


And lastly, a little purple.

Cupcake Pops

Then, I sprinkled them with a little bit of red and a lot of love.

Cupcake Pops

Voila… An army of cuteness. They’re getting ready for battle.

Here they are getting dressed for the occasion.

Fight Cancer

And, it’s an important one.

Cupcake Pops to Fight Cancer

Each year, American Cancer Society Relay for Life events take place in communities all over the country. It allows people to participate in the fight against cancer and brings communities together to do so. Basically teams are formed and raise money in fun ways to fight cancer. Then, on the day of the Relay, you and your team take turns walking around a designated track for 24 hours. (I’ve done it. It’s fun.) People raise money for their team in lots of ways. Car washes, raffles, yard sales, and of course bake sales. Ding. ding. ding… that’s where these little guys come in to play.

Bake Sale

Now, I know I’m not changing the world here with a few dozen Cupcake Pops, but every little bit helps, right!

And, who knows. Maybe they’ll make you want to click on this link, join a Relay for Life Team in your area and join the fight.

I love these cake pops. My sisters and I just lost our Mom in May to pancreatic cancer. We have been doing yard sales and looking for other ideas to raise money for the RFL. I just happened upon this fun idea. Plan to make them for a craft show in December. The proceeds with go the cause. RFL.

I love your cake pops and brownie pops. My cousin recommended you, she lives in Seattle, WA area and I live in Spring, TX!
I am also a cancer survivor! Thyroid! I appreciate your talent and giving nature (this blog). I have shared it with so many people already and I just learned about this blog last week! I just bought the ingredients to try out the brownie pops. I shared this site with my sons DEN leader (Cub Scouts), to think of something on how to use these pops like to do some type of community service, give out to the elderly, to a recovery type hospital to make someone happy for a moment by making these pops and then giving them out. Or just for the den to eat! As cub scouts (my son Hunter is a pround one). They are now WOLVES (yellow and blue)(2nd grade). I was wondering if you could help make some type of CUB for us to make. If you type in CUB SCOUT LOGO in google you can see the colors and picture. ANYWAY, if not you have given us a VERY creative place to start! THANK YOU!

Your cupcake pops are adorable! As a 2 time cancer survivor, my mom and dad both cancer survivors, and an employee for the American Cancer Society, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, all you do, makes a difference everyday. Keep on Relay’n! God Bless!

Last year was the first time I had been to the Relay For Life walk. It was amazing. Last year I only made about 6 dozen cookies. This year I have become very involved. I’m on the team called “The Herd”. I’m going to be making a display cake (decorated fittingly for ‘The Herd’), a sheet cake so we can cut and sell it, some delicious lemon bars, possibly some decorated cookies, and at least 100 cupcakes for the survivor tent. And now that I’ve seen this, I think I’ll add it to my list of things to make!! They’re great!

Thanks for this idea–I wanted to make something for us to sell at our Relay, and none of the purple velvet cake recipes that I found seemed to turn out for the bakers, so I went searching for another idea. Hoping I can make these for Relay this year!!

You are awesome!!!! I purchased your book this evening in hopes that it would help enspire some ideas for relay gifts, bake sale items etc. I thoughts the cake bites and cupcake pops would be perfect in purples and white for the event. After making my supply list for a test run I decided to check out your website and then I found this! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with the world I will certainly be telling everyone about your book and website.

So do you cut a cake in squares and then put them on a stick? Is it regular icing? I would like to make these, but I need more specific information.
