Books and Balls

Cake Balls

Monday night The Pioneer Woman was in town for her book signing tour. So the night before the signing, I worked on making her a little treat. I thought it would be nice to bring her something sweet to snack on while she signed away. I decided on cake balls. But, made them smaller than usual, so they could easily be eaten in one bite. I was right in the middle of finishing them when I received an unexpected invitation for dinner. Pioneer Woman (PW), was already in town with her sister, Betsy and friend Hyacinth. They were going to dinner and invited me along.

Ummm… decision time. Can I make it to dinner in an hour? I’m not dressed. My hair is wet and has been wrapped in a towel all afternoon. (Don’t ask.) And the restaurant is at least 30 minutes away. Or should I stay home and finish my present for her like a reasonable person. I think you know what I picked. And dinner was fantastic. I’m completely glad I went, because there was simply no time to chat Monday evening as there were hundreds of people in line to see her hours before she even arrived.

I paid the price late Sunday night though, because I had to finish assembling the cake balls and take pictures of them. Plus, I had a post I wanted to put up. And, that’s when I found out my camera was broken. So, no post and no pictures. Luckily I borrowed a camera (Thanks Ted) Monday afternoon so I could take these photos.

Okay, back to the cake balls. You see, I didn’t just want to bring her a box of balls. I wanted to make them a little special. So I stuck a stick in them.

Cake Balls

And came up with this to accessorize them…

Mini Books

What are they you say?

Well, they are teeny-tiny, little, itty-bitty…

Pioneer Woman in Paperback

miniature Pioneer Woman Cook Books.

Teeniny

Complete with inside pages. Yes, you can say it. I know. I’m crazy.

Pioneer Woman Cake Balls

But look how cute they are.

The inside is made using her chocolate sheet cake recipe. If you want to use it to make them, follow the basic how-to for cake balls here, substituting PW’s sheet cake and icing. Bake the cake and cool. Make the frosting and let it sit in a bowl, covered overnight to thicken. I used about half of the frosting to mix in with the crumbled cake and it worked out great.

Books

A snack pack of her book in paper back.

Bow

And all wrapped up.

Now, off to the signing.

IMG_0119

I met my friend Lori there.

IMG_0148

And my friend Meimi and her friends.

IMG_0133

I even made some new ones. Pam is on the right. She’s a hoot. We all waited together and had a blast.

IMG_0140

There were people everywhere. Hi Robin! Hey, that’s a nice camera.

IMG_0150

After reading Ree’s recaps from her previous signings, I expected to see lots of smiling faces.

IMG_0135

Everywhere… everyone was so happy to be there to meet Ree. She has that effect on people. Me included.

IMG_0124

I expected to see lots of adoring fans. Aren’t these two the cutest.

But I didn’t…

I didn’t expect …

this…

IMG_0127

or this…

IMG_0176

IMG_0170

Something weird was happening. I found myself on the other end of the camera throughout the night.

IMG_0260

And it was a completely unexpected treat to meet so many people that love Ree and also visit my little website. And just about everyone I met had even made cake pops. I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone. The evening was very surreal.

Here are some more photos from the night. I tried to get pics (Thanks Lori) of all the people that asked for photos so I would know I wasn’t dreaming the next day.

But wait…

I was here for a book signing. I had books to be signed.

IMG_0201

Everyone received post it notes to write their names on … it made things go faster since there were so many people.

IMG_0144

Ree is a machine. Signing, and spinning pens and pages. Even Betsy and Hyacinth were swamped. Seriously, I think they all signed books for at least five hours. Non-stop. And all with a smile.

IMG_0223

When it was my turn, I kneeled down beside Ree and looked up to find several cameras taking our picture together. I think that’s why I look like a dork. Disbelief behind those cheeks.

And … P.S. – I’m still short.

IMG_0225

All I can say on this one is …… paybacks…

IMG_0229

Just kidding … I heart you PW.

IMG_0234

And, you too guys. Hope you all had fun while you were here. I did.

Wow! I just found a new favorite Blog! You are an inspiration. I’m going to have to come back and wander around like a kid in a Candy Store on your blog when I’ve got some time. Probably tonight! Love, love, love your work and creativity.

And those PW toothpick/Mini books… Brilliant and Adorable!
I met PW when she was in So Cal… I blogged about it here:

Thanks for the fun evening and for linking my blog, your the best. I can believe how cute the mini books were, your talent knocks me over. My sister and I always get called cute so we cracked up when that was what you called us. I heart Bakerella

Seanna Lea said...

That was super cool. Given the holiday season, I always picture a book signing like taking a 100 or more of your closest friends and everyone getting together and making you fill out all of their holiday cards at once. By hand. With special messages.

It’s craziness! Which is why when I go to signings I try to only bring a book or two (except for that one time with Tamora Pierce).

SCSue said...

Is that peanut butter icing drizzled over the cake pops? Please tell how you made it!
These are adorable!
I don’t have time for tiny books, but I’ll be making these this weekend for my co-workers. I hope you have time to tell how to make the drizzle icing!

Hi there! Totally new to your site but super excited to look around. Confession here…I don’t bake…much…except for your occasional brownie or dump cake. Pathetic, I know. Now why would someone like me visit a blog named Bakerella? Because I’m secretly hoping some of your talent will seep into me through visual osmosis or something. Hey, a girl can dream.

What an amazing evening. First, PW walks in (like a ROCKSTAR, I might add). And then moments later, I lean over to Pam (who is a hoot — makes me smile on a daily basis) and go, “I think that’s Bakerella!!!!”

So fun to hear your stories and insights, see all your fans and stand in that long, long line. Love all the inspiration you bring — looking forward to your book ;)

Great Story! Like I’ve said before – so glad I found your site. You are obviously so talented with great new and inspirational ideas, you absolutely have to do your own book!! I would run to the store to get. The little book/balls are just incredible!! Thanks for all you do.

I am a HUGE PW fan, and her post linked me here to your blog this morning.

All I can say is, WOW…you are one very talented baker! I can only imaging how much Ree loved your cake balls and the amazing miniature books!. What an incredible gift!

You have a new follower! :-)

Stoich91 said...

How sweet! What a creative pie pop idea; yes, you are CRAZY and that is what makes this site, I believe, so that Americans with their hair up in towels and 30 minutes until a dinner party can stare at thoes teeny little pages (or the pops, which are cuties by themselves) and go “She did WHAT?!”. So may the crazy cooking live on…and do some signings yourself! Write a new book, or something. That we we can all meet you when you TRAVEL everywhere (bringing a good supply of pops to share with your doting fans, of course :))

Hi dear Bakerella!! You indeed have a lot of fans, as you probably noticed on the signing event! ;-) You also have some international fans, like me!! I have been following your posts for a long time, far far away from you, in Argentina.. You are beyond adorable (not to mention talented), and so are your creations.. I can’t even say anything about those unbelievable, tiny books.. Cuteness overload!!!! :-) I wish the best for you, and Merry Christmas!! Hugs from Buenos Aires.

I had no idea you are from ATL and had no clue that was you at the signing getting all the attention. I wish I had been nosier and just walked up to the crowd to see who it was. Instead, my sis-in-law and I sat and waited our 5 hours to see PW.
Are you going to share how you created such tiny cookbooks?

Ok, so a friend of mine keeps telling me “I saw this on Bakerella” or “did you see Bakerella today?” Nope, hadn’t seen it but after checking your blog out today I can say I’m officially addicted and how totally cute are these little books. Yes, you may be crazy but I’d be right there with you trying to be a little over achiever on impressing PW! What a fun time for you!

For one who can barely navigate through email, eBay, and a little on-line shopping, I am completely awestruck by the creative talents of people like you and PW. Those little cookbooks are simply brilliant and truly inspired. Was it a hard thing to do? How are the pages held together? How did you do this? How did you even THINK to do this!!!!?!!!!
Amazing.

What an amazing idea! And I think I would drop everything to go have dinner with PW too.

I know most everyone has already commented, but I want to mention that my book review site is giving away one of the signed books I picked up at the LA signing. If you know anyone that’s interested in a FREE SIGNED Pioneer Woman Cookbook send them my way! And don’t worry I kept one for myself ;)

I’m so sad that I didn’t hunt you down after I got out of the line. I saw you when you arrived then thought you left but obviously you were just surrounded by adoring fans. Maybe there will be a next time. Maaaaybe you’ll have a book signing yourself one day and we can all wait hours upon hours to get your famous signature…

Bakerella and The Pioneer Woman together! How amazing. I need to bow down to you for making those little tiny books for those cake balls. Are you going to tell us how you did it?? Please share your secret…

I have to share… I was given a couple of cupcake books for Christmas that I already had so I had to return them to the store. After returning them it dawned on me that I could use the refund to purchase the Pioneer Woman cookbook. It has some awesome recipes that I can’t wait to try. But what makes this a treasure is the step by step images the author took along with the wonderful story she tells throughout the book.
Thanks for the introduction to a wonderful cookbook!

Dear Bakerella, “Thud” “Inquiring minds want to know” well, me too. I want to know how you did those amazing, teeny, tiny books?

I’m guessing you used the color copier to shrink them down to size and then past and tape and time to get them into book shape? I’d love it if you managed to take pictures. We’d all love to see it.

Thanks for all the wonderful creative fun projects. Just wish I had time and patience to do them all. Wait, I don’t have to, I can live vicariously through the pages of your blog.

Love your cake pops for Ree. Something happened with my feed and your posts weren’t coming through. I think I’ve fixed it now. And for some reason I didn’t realize you were in Atlanta. Shoot. Now I’m really upset because I didn’t get to meet Ree or you! Just kidding. Maybe one day I’ll get the chance.

So cute! I love those! I’ll have to try making those for my kids’ parties. We have a Halloween party/bday party every year and also had a Japanese food themed party/bday party in Sept.

Pumpkin cake balls? Wasabi frosted? Oh the possibilities!

I LOVE your kind of crazy! It makes me go “squee!” in some sort of manic fangirl way I don’t quite understand yet. When I was first shown your blog, I had to tell my referring friend that I either love or hate her for it, because, ironically, it’s kindof like sugar high,. It makes me feel so crazy excited, but mostly in a way where we start mixing analogies and I’m some sort of overexcited puppy that can’t get anything done, looking all over the place until descending into some sort of asthma attack. That sounds kindof horrible doesn’t it? It shouldn’t. It’s nearly 3am though. Not my most eloquent hour, I’m sure…. You have so much for me to love it can be overwhelming- and I’m not always good at moderation!
(I still love you for it, of course)
