Wilton “Pops in a Post” Contest

December 15, 2010

If you are a regular follower of The Mommy-Files, you’ve seen many different Wilton posts focused on cake decorating, cookie decorating, and candy making.  Most recently, I learned about Pops.  Pops are for all occasions, from birthday parties to weddings.  Pops are for everyone, from the beginning decorator to the expert.  They can be as simple or as complex as you want.  The opportunities to personalize Pops are virtually endless, varying color, design, taste, and more.  Plus, Pops aren’t just about cake pops, but you can make pops using cookies, crispy treats, and brownies too!

Wilton makes it easier than anyone to bake, decorate, display and present Pops through its ideas (projects), tools, and accessories.  Wilton has everything you need!  Pops make great gifts and Wilton makes it easy to package and present them so that you can accomplish that ‘wow’ factor.

The Pops – Sweets on a Stick publication contains over 250 amazing decorated pop ideas.  Plus, you’ll find basic pop-making tips, step-by-step instructions and great ways to present pops at a party or as gifts.  You can view several sample pages of the book on Wilton.com.

The Pops section of Wilton.com (http://www.wilton.com/pops) contains additional ideas, recipes, and how-to advice.

Wilton is excited to extend a contest to bloggers in the blogosphere, focusing on Pops treats!  These are really yummy and I myself am excited to try making them!  Here’s some information on the contest.
