Sprinkled with Spring

The weather is warmer, the sun is hotter and the rainy days are coming. This must mean one thing – it's time for Spring!

With everyone's mind on the outdoors, no wonder here at Polkadots we've received lots of orders featuring everyone's favorite outdoor resident, animals! Call it jungle fever, call it zoomania, but there is no denying that animals are on the brain. 

Take a look at the zoo of creations we've been working on!

Big Projects, Big Fun!

So far this year, Polkadots has seen many new and exciting things. The projects are larger and tastier than ever! This month, we've been playing with new materials and flavors to make all of our clients' wildest dreams come true. 

Ever wonder what a Jeep tastes like? How about a bottle of Crown? Well, at Polkadots, our Jeeps taste like chocolate and our bottles, like smooth red velvet.

This ball park is hardly the hot dog, peanuts and Cracker Jack taste we all know and remember. Maybe a sweet lemon and cream or strawberry shortcake?

Liam's castle may look like stone, but cut it open and you'll find his favorite flavor; cookies and cream.
