CAKE pops have become a hit with sweet tooths around the world, and a Yamanto woman has turned her passion for the sweets into a successful business.

Tracy Halls began Cake Pop House after community interest in her creative treats surged.

"I began making them about a year ago for children's birthdays; I make a lot of animal pops and characters like princesses," Ms Halls said.

"They're basically a cake ball covered with candy and set on a stick, and they're decorated with fondant, sweets or sprinkles."

Ms Halls said she "stumbled" on the food trend online.

"I wanted something small to make and decorate, and they were perfect," she said.

"I'm using a lot of brightly-covered sprinkles at the moment and I also released a wedding range at the beginning of the year, which features tuxedo cake pops."

Ms Halls said she baked between 200 and 400 cake pops a week, and enjoyed making custom orders.
