Our fabulous POP Cake competition is over. And what a competition it was. We’ve had some sensational summery designs but there can only be one winner. So say a big congrats to Thomas Craig.

Clare O’Connell, owner of funky POP Bakery thought Thomas Craig’s design summed up summer to a tee. What do you think?


Here’s a summery selection of a few of your fab designs – well done everyone!

Catch Up With Clare

Have you made any
unusual POPs since we
last saw you?

I’ve made lots of tricky ones! My favourites have been Canadian Mounties for Canada day. A lovely range of Anna Sui POPs for their new beauty product launch and some cute little polo players for British polo day.

Have you made any
wedding POPs?

I’ve done lots of weddings, but not your obvious designs. People love having their pets as POPs or little Polaroids of themselves when they first met. Sweet.

How does all this lovely hot weather affect your pops?
Not well, but I’m relieved to say I finally have air con so we can now POP away to our heart’s content!

Tried any new
NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto®
flavours lately?

Actually, a friend put me onto Cappuccino Ice which is just scrummy! It’s so refreshing in all this hot weather. I love it.

How are the paints going?
Great! Just finishing the packaging designs which for me is the most exciting part. It’s taking longer than I thought, but I really want them to be perfect when we launch!

Had your hols yet?
Me and my boyfriend are doing a road trip round the south of France soon. We’re starting off in Montpelier then going down to the Spanish border and up through the national park to Leon. Can’t wait!

Been in the news lately?
We’re waiting for our stacked cake to be in Brides magazine next month which will be a proud moment!
