Christine Ibarra (Cakepopbox)

"My name is Christine, & I AM Cakepopbox! I spent many years learning how to perfect my cakepops & other small desserts. As a permitted home baker, I made beautiful desserts for clients' special occasions & events. For years I was asked if I would ever host a class on my desserts, & for years I said no. The fear of failure paralyzed me. I had every reason not to give it a try. Although I was scared, I decided to host a series of online tutorials before launching my very first course online. My online classes were more successful than I could ever have imagined. Since then. As a baker & treat maker who loved the glamorous side of desserts, I decided to introduce my very own brand, Shine Dessert Glitter. A true edible glitter with a real SHINE!"

Cakepops by Rachel

"I am first & foremost a wife & mom to three crazy boys! I started making cakepops for family & friends over 10 years ago! I quickly found that these little treats brought me so much joy & it really allowed me to express my artistic side with each & every order. As a former elementary school teacher, my passion is still in educating others - now I just do it with cakepops! I absolutely love sharing the knowledge I've gained over the years with others & teaching all my tips & tricks to my students! Cakepopping has brought me so much joy & I hope to share it with others, whether that be through tasting my treats or learning how to create them themselves!"
