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:

Well well. You gone and done it again girlfriend. You know you can start on your spring edition, then your summer edition, then a kids edition, a fancy adult edition, a…. ok I will give you a break-HAHA But I just signed up for all of these and you haven’t even made them yet! LOL Anything you do is amazing but I’m sure you know that already. When I grow up, I wanna be you, even though I’m already in my upper 40′s! HAHA

This news of a holiday edition is so exciting! I can’t wait to look inside. October is too far away, especially if you plan your holiday baking several months in advance.

Do you think people will ever do “July for Christmas” I have no clue where you’d get a water mellon at that time of year, but I think it’s worth a go.

I just started a youtube channel about crafting would love for you to check it out and provide some feedback!
