diy holiday: cake pops

Our resident DIY diva Erica, tarte’s senior graphic designer and unofficial  pastry chef, is the queen of the cake pop. We long for office birthdays, baby showers and engagement parties —  just to bite into one of these incredible confections. Seriously, we have yet to taste a pop that rivals hers! And considering that this high season for baking, we had her breakdown her process for the ultimate cake pop how-to!

healthy sweets for your sweetie

 This Valentine’s Day have your main squeeze bite into something sweet and healthy with these good-for-you goodies!

 

Babycakes bakery is great place to pick up treats if your sweetie is a vegan, these cupcakes are healthy, but still sure satisfy any sweet tooth

Strawberries are a great choice for Valentine’s Day.  They’re loaded with healthy minerals and vitamins, the kind that boost your immune system, improve brain health, and slow aging. Add a little dark chocolate and you’ve got a treat very few people can resist. Yeah, that’s sweet.

Dark chocolate — a potent antioxidant known to lower blood pressure — covered almonds are packed with protein and vitamins that not only taste great, but are healthy as well. Unless your sweetie is allergic to nuts — we suggest you find that out first — these are the perfect Valentine’s gift.

Angel food cake is really a star in the world of baking and confection. Named because of it’s light and airy texture, this cake is great because it’s low in calories but still offers a delicious sweet taste without the guilt.
