How did Popadoodledoo begin? Well it started when I was planning my wedding & I thought they would make great favours for our wedding guest. Luckily I was so busy making everything else I didn't get round to making them for my wedding but I had all the stuff.
Flash forward to Halloween & the boys wanted to make them, I thought why not it will be fun but actually what I didn't realise was there was tips & tricks to making them (that's another blog)
Here is my first attempt at cake pops & as you can see they are a little messy
Not to be beaten by cake pops I booked myself on a course to learn how to make them & thats where I learnt the tips to make the perfect cake pop.
As you can see a massive improvement & this is where my love for cake pops began
It was at this point I really started to play around & loved these little treats the creativeness that they brought too.
Popadoodledoo was born but how do you get your products seen?
For me I applied for my local markets starting at Newbury market first, then Thatcham market & finally Thames valley farmers markets. I absolutely loved the markets because I got to see customers reactions the smiles on their faces as they chose their cake pops, but not only that I made friends for life too!
Here I am at Newbury market in my pink gazebo
I then applied for Yumbles & Not on the high street which I was excepted by both (it took me 4 attempts with not on the high street) I know make to order as I found that is what works best for my business & I never thought I would be as busy as I am now but thanks to an amazing business coach & amazing lady that helps organise me I've grown an amazing online business that just goes from strength to strength.
My best seller on Not on the high street are these unicorn popsicles
My advice is if you have a passion for something then go for it, what have you got to lose!
