Join us this weekend for the Spring Home & Leisure Show @cobourgcommunitycentre . Al and I will be on hand to answer any of your questions and give you a better idea of the current Northumberland housing market. Make sure to stop by the booth for your chance to win a Sony PS4. Hope to see you there!
A lot of people ask me “how did your business all start?”.. and for awhile I didn’t know how to answer because it seemed to just miraculously fall into my lap.
I’ve always been a very creative person. I have a Degree in visual arts where I jumped around from painting to printmaking to all facets of photography and then eventually design. I’ve always loved food... high carbs and sugars to be exact! 🥨🍕🍩🍰🍬🍦🍫 But if I could trace back the lightbulb moment for The Social Pop’s then I would say it all started with my fascination of lollipops. It’s taken me more than a year to finally perfect the art of Lolli’s.. from a balanced recipe to the time demanding and temperature crucial process.
One summer afternoon I was struggling (yet again😒) to make lollipops with my best friend Lauren @woodlandcreatures06 and just in conversation she mentioned I should try cakepops and so one random Thursday night months later she showed me how to make them in her new kitchen! And that was it.. I learned how to make cakepops in December 2017 and then less than a month later at the beginning of January 2018 I found myself passing them out at the Cobourg Lions Centre for the Northumberland Bridal Show. It was a miracle that they had a spot open on such short notice for such a reputable event! I just went for it. All in. By the end of the day all 500 cakepops were devoured and everyone was buzzing about how great they were. Ever since the bridal show I’ve been blessed to have a steady flow of cakepop orders coming in. I absolutely LOVE making cakepops and all the wonderful people it’s allowed me to meet!
Something kept telling me to keep trying to make lolli’s though! So after many many more trial and error’s at home I finally nailed it.. and then again and again! So last Saturday I decided to officially launch my 🍭at the @frostedflourco PopUp Shop! 🚀 Watermelon, Wine Time and Orange Cream! Adorned with @petiteingredient organic edible flowers and gold foil!
I wake up excited every day thinking of all the new possibilities and things to explore. Thankyou to everyone who’s supported me along the way. So there you have it, my story of the wild journey it’s been so far. 😍
Officially pooped! Dancing around these 53 spindles was quite the task (so.. many.. angles) but after some more minor repairs and a few top coats of #rennerindustrial#polyurethane wood coatings, a finish was achieved we are very proud of.
