What could be better than a ball of cake on a lollipop stick? How about a ball of cake mixed with homemade icing, rolled in chocolate and covered in various toppings on a lollipop stick.
Stick & Pop, a purveyor of gourmet cake pops is a recent addition to Chelsea, having opened in early February. The menu of original pops (special order is available) includes a variety of inventive flavors, priced at $3 a pop. The Griswold, sold out every time I've visited the cozy 19th street outpost, combines marshmallow and vanilla cake with chocolate chunks and is dipped in dark chocolate and rolled in graham crackers. My go-to, and this week's Fat Fridays indulgence, is the Johnny Cakes; peanut butter cake dipped in dark chocolate and rolled in pretzel pieces and sea salt. It is the perfect bite-sized combo of sweet and salty, conveniently set atop a lollipop stick.
