Striped Straws!

This weekend I of course had to use my new striped straws but I also wanted to do some other Valentine's Day designs and attempt at making my first banner.  All in all I don't think it turned out bad at all. :)  I absolutely love the striped straws that I got from Green Party Goods they add just a little pop and they are environmentally friendly too. I love that they come in a box of 144, and they were a dream to work with.  Very easy to trim if need and so sharp edges if you do have to trim them.  I will definitely have to purchase some other colors to experiment with. :) If you haven't heard of them you should check out their stuff, they have more than just straws of course. Click here to head over to their Face Book page and show some love, tell them The Sweet Life sent you.  :) Here are a few more photos form this weekends fun. You can always head over to my Facebook page and see more pics.Enjoy!

The darker hearts are dipped in purple and have purple sanding sugar on them, this picture does not do them justice!

Love These!

What can make someone Friday that loves making cake pops???  Free product to try of course!!  I was so excited to come home from my office job and see that I had received some paper straws from Green Party Goods and they are the cutest and environmentally safe to boot! Who doesn't love awesome party items that are safe for the environment too?  I will definitely be using these this weekend and then posting pictures to share and to let everyone know how they worked out.  :)

Aren't they the cutest??
Head on over to their Facebook page and show some love!!  :)

What a week!!

I never imagined that in one week my Facebook "likes" would go from almost 50 to 136!!  I of course did not get here on my own, I must give credit to some very gracious people/businesses.  It all began when I signed on with Creative Juice to participate in my very first giveaway!  Mindy was so gracious to allow me to participate and feature my cake pops, if you haven't been to her blog or Facebook page stop b you will be a fan forever!!  From there I decided that was kind of fun so I joined in on a giveaway and auction on Mom To Mom Boutique which went great,!! Again you should really check out her stuff on her Facebook page, super cute! The giveaway pops are on the way to the lucky recipient and I hope that they enjoy them! From there I just could not stop so I signed up for another giveaway on Facebook  at My 4 Girls Creations  which ends the end of this month so head on over and enter if you have not done so already! All of this of course goes without saying that it has also sparked other interest in my treats and I could not be happier!! I love getting in the kitchen and creating yummy masterpieces that look just too good to eat.  I still have a lot to learn but am gracious that these ladies as well as others that I have come in contact with over the week have given me a chance to show off my sweet treats. I hope that this trend continues.  I will be making more pops this weekend and posting pics so stay tuned!

What better edible way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with some cake pops!  This weekend I worked on creating some roses.  They are not that difficult to make but so require some extra preparation and don't contain as much cake as my traditional cake pops do but they are still tasty and beautiful!  Will more than likely work on some more colors in the short future so keep checking back to see what new designs or colors I am coming up with! More pictures at my Facebook page,

Remember Valentine's Day sale is still going on! Head over to to see the awesome deal!

So the giveaway at Creative Juice and Mom to Mom Boutique are up and open and my pops are part of them both!! I checked the Creative Juice blog at  and was beyond ecstatic to see my pops there with everyone else's talented work. Seriously you would have thought I won  money based on the HUGE smile I had on my face. It is amazing how many likes my Facebook page has received in the last 24 hours and wonderful sweet comments. It really is humbling that others like my creative sweet treats. I am also part of an auction at the Mom to Mom Boutique Facebook page.

 Also today, the website that I am doing advertising for, introduced the team so a pic and a little about me is posted along with the other beautiful talented women that contribute to the website.

2012 is really starting off great for The Sweet Life that I hope it continues and bleeds into other areas of my life.  :)

Valentines Sale!

Head on over to and check out the Valentines Sale that has already started! It is never too early to place your order for your special someone.  Wouldn't it be better to know that you are biting into a delicious cake pop such as red velvet? I for one would much rather have them than a box of chocolates that you have to bite into to see if you will even like it. Also, never forget if you don't see something you are thinking about ordering let me know and chances are that I can make your vision.

Valentines 2012 Ideas

It is never too early to start thinking of what you will get your special someone for Valentine's Day.  Instead of the same old boring box of chocolates why not get them some delicious cake pops?  These are just a few of the designs I have been working on so far.  Check back as the weeks go on for other designs.  It is never too early to head over to to place your orders.  :)

First order of 2012 complete!

Well the first official Sweet Life order has been completed and will be delivered tomorrow.  They were super fun to make and am beyond thankful as always for the business.  They are for a lucky girl's 21st birthday, and yes there is a story behind the chickens (birds) in the basket.  I hope she has a wonderful 21st birthday and enjoys the cake pops!  :)

I have tried another new design for me this evening while completing an order.  Above are basketballs to start my sports collection.  I will be trying more sports themed pops as the year progresses. As always if there is something you don't see that you would like please let me know! :)

Angry Bird Attack!!

Haha! I love these!! Today I asked my followers on Twitter and Facebook to let me know what I haven't made yet that they would like to see and someone (you know who you are) requested I try to make the red angry bird, so here they are!  And of course they would not be complete with out tail feathers! Everything is completely edible too.  :)

Baby Shower Pops

I am working on new designs for the new year and came up with some baby shower pops while completing part of my first order in 2012.  The baby cake pops can be customized to fit shower colors of course and can also be arranged in a basket.  I will be working on blocks and rattles as well to add to the collection so keep checking in.  :)

Happy New Year!

What better way for me to start the new year off than be in the kitchen making pops!!  I made the above pops to ring in the new year and the ones without writing on them are the shimmery pops I refer to for the Winter Sale going on now.

Thanks so much for everyone who made 2011 successful for me and The Sweet Life.  I hope to continue to bring you the sweetest treats in 2012.  Happy New Year!!
