Recently an unclaimed bag at DIA was cause for quite a lot of excitement...TSA scanned the bag and were unsure what the round balls on sticks were so they called in the drug dogs to sniff them out before opening up the suitcase. The dogs went wild - barking and jumping up and down in excitement. According to their trainers, this behavior was not indicative of dangerous materials within the suitcase. The bomb squad was called and they slowly unzipped the bag and discovered - wait for it - hundreds of LOLLICAKES! They were decorated beautifully in sparkling swirls of sugar in all the colors of the rainbow. The squad had difficulty holding back the dogs and the other members of the team as they rushed the bag for a sample of the unclaimed stash...thankfully, no one was harmed. The bag was returned to its' owner who stated that the bag had been stolen earlier in the day by a fellow by the name of Willy Wonka....ok, just kidding! These 336 Lollicakes are heading up to Vail, Colorado, for Brian and Bethany's Team in Training for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Marathon fundraiser. Thanks to all of you up in Vail who have supported them - and thanks to Team Lollicake for making this possible!
Recently I was asked if I could do some type of Lollicake arrangement for - wait for it - a doggie birthday party. Sheila loves her puppy, Bungee, and Sheila loves Lollicakes so she wanted to have a special treat for Bungee's birthday party. I knew I could create some cute doggie Lollicakes...and seriously considered actually processing some dog biscuits so that Bungee could have his own Lollicake - but then I thought that would still be a little too much sugar for the sweet puppy. I made up some doggie Lollicakes in brown and white just like Bungee so that he could share them with his "human" guests and then dipped doggie biscuits in vanilla so that Bungee's friends could have some treats too! So - Happy Birthday Bungee from The Lollicake Bakeshop!!!
Easter is just around the corner so I thought I would once again borrow inspiration from Bakerella and try making some of her chicks! I didn't have exactly the same embellishments that she used but...as you can see Kailyn thought they were just "chick-a-licious"
