An update


Things are getting closer. It looks like the book will be available a little earlier than expected. In September instead of October online and in stores in October. Yay! I can’t wait to hold one. Then, I might finally believe this is all really happening.

It’s going to be hardcover and Wire-O bound so it will lay flat, which I love. 160 pages with more than 40 cake pop projects. Some you’ve seen here on the site and some you haven’t. It also has step-by-step photos showing how to make basic cake pops and how to dip them. Visuals help, so I hope it answers some of your questions, too.

Anyway, just wanted to give you an update. And, if you want to peek at the cover, hop on over to any of the sites below. You can even get a pretty good pre-order price at a couple of them.


Barnes and Noble


Chronicle Books

Note: The pops in the background are some of the ones that will be in the book. You may even recognize a few. And if you’re wondering about cartoon characters… there are only generic pops in the book. No Winnie, Mickey or Hello Kitty.

Mine’s on order! (Can’t remember the last time I bought a book that would be kept in the kitchen!). I hope you make a ton of money on your book….you’ve more than earned it.
I’m taking a break from making cake pops right now…..I just gotta get help for this addiction. Bakerella, after you publish your book I think you should fund a Pop Star Rehab Center and I’ll be your second registrant (pretty sure you’ll be first). Until, then, pop on!

May 26, 2010 02:44 PM

I don’t know about the cake pops… I’ve never tried doing some but it seems so difficult shaping them!! I saw your Winnie Pooh’s they are amazing although they seem time consuming and yet hard to achieve..So I hope to buy your book as a reference and try some! After all, practice makes perfect, right?? Good luck with your book. Saludos desde MĂ©xico!
