Christmas in July


I have a surprise to share.

I haven’t said anything before now, but I’ve been busy dipping. Dipping and rolling and crumbling. And creating and photographing and writing… a NEW Cake Pops book. I started earlier this year and I’ve been working hard to get it finished in time for the Holidays… for one very important reason.

Cake Pops Holidays

It’s a holiday season themed Cake Pops book.

Cake Pops Holidays

I can hardly believe it’s finally done. I started working on the book the beginning of this year and wondered on a few occasions if I could finish it in time. It’s been a challenging last year as many of you guys know.

Cake Pops Holidays Cover

But I did. YAY! And here’s the super cute cover.

I love the little snowflakes.

Cake Pops Books

Cake Pops Holidays! This book is smaller than my first, and I’m loving the size. You know how I am with all things little. I think it makes the book even cuter. It would be a sweet present for a baker, crafter or cake pop maker.  Stocking stuffer maybe? Secret Santa gift? And I hope it makes some of your shopping easier this year.

There are more than twenty new projects all devoted to the holiday season like these wreaths, polar bears, stockings, and gingerbreads that you see on the cover.

Cake Pops Holidays

Of course you’ll find some Santas, too.

And there’s more cute holiday season cake pops for winter, Christmas and Hannukah along with instructions and tips to help make your cake pops turn out great.

Cake Pops Holidays

And YAY – this book also has the wiro binding. So excited about that.

Candy Coating

So if these make you happy…

Candy and Sprinkles

And if candy gets your creativity going or sprinkles make you smile…

Cake Pops Holidays Book

Then, I hope you enjoy my new book. Get ready to spread some holiday cheer.

It’s available this October wherever books are sold, but you can pre-order it now:

Barnes and Noble
Chronicle Books
Target (link to come)

Also available here:

I’m really looking forward to your new book! I cannot get enough of your creative ideas! Will you embark on another book tour?

Ingelin said...

Love the cover, and the rest looks very good ;) I’m not thrilled about the size thoug…. It’s cute and all, but when I’m going to place it in my kitchen shelf, it’s not the same size as the other one. But I’m definaltly going to buy this one as well ;)
At first i didn’t think I needed the first book, because you can always find cake pops inspirations on the internet. But I bought the book, and it’s a real feel-good book. Lovely pictures and colours, and I love it ;)
And I’m quite impressed to see that the book is available in Norway, of all places, for pre-ordering. I might just do that ;)
Congratulations on your new book, I’m sure it is just as delightful as the first one ;)

Ingelin ;)

Hooray! Many congratulations Bakerella! It’s a fantastic achievement to be able to take your hobby to international bestselling book. To do another – that’s downright amazing! I have no doubt it’s going to be a huge success. All the best!

Vicki Bensinger said...

How exciting. This will be a fun to do during the holidays with my kids classes and of course just myself. Would you have ever thought in your wildest dreams that cake pops would be all the rage that they are? I will be sure to order this on Amazon to add to my other book and I may even have to purchase a couple for holiday gifts.

It’s good to know once you whip out one book the seco d goes faster.

Thanks so much everyone!

Lirone – see if there is a cake supply store in your area and there’s always amazon.

Christina K – that sounds super fun

Vicki – you remember. Yep I made them based on those cookies.

Catarina – Ask for it on your wedding registry. That would be pretty cute.

Sweetopia – There’s gonna be something sweet in it for you.

Lisa – so happy to hear that.

Morabere – visit for the languages I have it available in.

Aussiemarina – I’d love to go to Australia

Tamara Jones – too funny

LD and Sarah – talking about it now. Glad you enjoyed the tour. It was a blast meeting everyone.

Heidi – yes. Yes.

Ingelin – It’s a smaller page count book, so it made sense to make it smaller in size too.

Lori from Port Perry – love that idea!

Bridget (bake at 350) – right back at you my friend.

Wendy – Thanks so much!

Wenderly – thank you love.

Nick – there’s a link above.

Cheryl – there’s a new hannukah project and some generic winter ones too.

Amy – I included all rudolphs from the first book. Couldn’t leave that guy out.
