Molly Bakes...pop cakes amongst other things

Molly Bakes was set up by Molly (no surprise there really) in London in 2009. Since then she's seen her pop cakes stocked in Selfridges and she's created orders for the likes of Elle Macpherson. Not bad eh?

She also does lots of bespoke orders for brides which is why I thought she'd be perfect for an interview for Savoir hearts this supplier.

* You make all sorts of cupcakes, brownies, pop cakes and so on. What's the most fun to make?

We make all sorts in the Molly Bakes kitchen as I like variety. I enjoy making everything but when you've made hundreds of cake pops it's a welcome break to do something different the next day. The bespoke orders are most fun though.

* You were the first baker to introduce cake pops to the UK, no? What made you realise Brits would go crazy for cake bites on a stick?

I love trying new things, I first saw them on American baking sites and decided to make some to sell on my market stall on Brick Lane. I wasn't actually sure whether they'd sell or not but they did. I just make things that I like the look of and my customers have loved everything so far! People were instantly intrigued by cakes on sticks, they were soon outselling my cupcakes. They're cute, colourful and tasty - how could Brits not go crazy for them?!

* Do you do a lot of pop cakes for weddings? How does it work with brides wanting to provide cake pops on their big day? Do you offer a bespoke service?

Yes cake pops are very popular for weddings, most people have them as favours but some have ordered them in place of a cake. Yes every order is bespoke, some customers go for simple designs while others like to have cakes that look like themselves! My favourite so far was a Christmas tree shaped wedding cake made entirely of cake balls - it even had an angel on top and presents at the bottom.

* And finally, congrats on having a book out soon! When's it out, where can we buy it and what can we expect inside it?

Book is out on June 2nd. You'll be able to buy it from all good bookstores. There will be 50 recipes for making cake pops inc. 6 different flavours. You'll find a few old favourites in the book but a lot of it is stuff I haven't posted online or made for any of my customers yet. It's a mixture of pretty, cute, quirky and edgy. I can't wait for you all to see it!

Pretty, cute, quirky and edgy? Sounds like my kind of thing! Thanks to Molly for being a Savoir Hearts this Supplier. Find out more about Molly and her cakes here, here and soon here.
