Is it just us – or is food so much better on a stick? It started with cake pops, then cookie pops and before you know it food on sticks took off.
Pretty much any food can be served on a stick. We’ve got pies and doughnuts but think mini burgers, cupcakes… let your imagination run wild.
Food on sticks don’t just look cool, it’s handy too! Parties, bake sales, even weddings are occasions where food sticks get a chance to shine. Who’d want to carry a boring old plate when you can eat your food off a stick?!
Ahh the beginning of our food on sticks obsession! Cake pops are such a simple idea but they make eating cake that more much fun (and it was pretty fun to begin with!). Cake sponge is crumbled down, mixed with buttercream and set on a stick with some melted chocolate or candy melts. There’s something so satisfying in walking around eating a cake off a stick – try it yourself!
