Thanks to cake pops, desserts on a stick have taken baking by storm, making our favorite treats even more delectable. Pies, caramel, and even cookies are proving that everything tastes better on a stick. From the sweet to the savory to the unexpected, these desserts are among those that have followed in the cake pop's path.
Filled with creative "pop" ideas ranging from mini champagne bottles to popcorn to the ever-popular cake pops, this shower has high impact, but — the part we really love — it's pretty easy to re-create (especially if you pick up the invites and party package through Le Partie Sugar's Etsy store).

One of my favorite parts of Valentine's Day is how everything becomes heart-shaped for a month, and that includes the candy! Conversation hearts are a seasonal staple, but while they're cute to give and get, the chalky taste can leave your sweet tooth unsatisfied. Instead of doling out the pastel treats, check out these five easy ways to make delicious heart-inspired desserts!

Show off your cake decorating skills by making a cute, homemade Halloween cake or cupcakes. Spiders, Frankenstein, and creepy ghosts are just a few Halloween themes you can easily translate to your baked goods. Cakes and cupcakes make a fun and exciting centerpiece to any party, so get your mixer and piping bag out and ready. We've broken it down by hardest to easiest, so you can work with your skill and comfort level.
What's cuter than a cupcake? A mini cupcake, of course! Increasingly, sweet treats come in two sizes: regular and petite. Almost every cupcakery is cooking up mini cakes for birthday parties and office soirees, three-bite cake pops put the trend on a stick, and national chains like Starbucks and Baskin-Robbins are getting even more creative with tiny treats.
On the heels of the Starbucks petites line of mini cupcakes, whoopie pies, and cake pops (pictured above), Baskin-Robbins is debuting cake bites, which are basically four-bite nuggets of ice cream cake.
We've also spotted brownie bites ranging from Trader Joe's tasty treats to Pillsbury's Sweet Moments line of brownie bites. Bakery line Entenmann's also sells mini versions of its cakes, while Starbucks plans to roll out new holiday-themed petites this November.
Why are tiny treats so big? Surely it's a combination of cuteness and the calorie factor, letting eaters indulge in just a few bites rather than a large, decadent dessert. So what do you think of the trend: too cute to resist or too much already?
Get your cake on! Just when we thought the cake pop craze couldn't get any bigger, it did. We've seen so many gorgeous cake pop designs that we know it's hard for kiddos — and mama too! — to resist the temptation. That's why we're sharing with you an exclusive gluten-free, vegan rhubarb cheesecake pop recipe from The Dessert Revolution ebook.
So what is the difference between a regular rhubarb cheesecake pop and a vegan cheesecake pop? Well, everything! Sugar, flour, butter, and cream cheese are the main ingredients for a standard cheesecake — and they're all substituted with raw alternatives like agave nectar and virgin coconut oil. Not to worry though, they're equally delicious, and your kids will never know the difference!
