I also have a brand new BLOG, called Decor Advice by the Slice!!! I talk about all things related to decorating, and go BEYOND the buttercream!  Come join me over there as well at www.decoradvicebytheslice.blogspot.com



I get asked all of the time if I can mail my cakes.  Unfortunately, we can't mail the cakes, but we can MAIL our CRUFFLE POPS!!!  They're the size of truffles, but made of cake, so we call them cruffles.  They're also not like a traditional cake pop...they're all cake, no fillers, and are twice baked, then dipped in chocolate.  You MUST try some today! 


Got What It Cakes is so excited to offer cake decorating classes now!!!  They're so much fun...bring your favorite cocktail or mocktail, and three of your friends, and learn how to decorate a gorgeous cake (that you get to take home too!)  Please check out the flyer to see what cake is currently being taught in class!
