Just plain sweet!

I received the best Valentine’s Day card yesterday and it wasn’t even addressed to me.

It was from a sweet, eight-year-old little girl named Ellica and written to her mom.

Let me show you…


Dear Mom

Happy Valentine’s Day! I have a TREAT for U!

Here’s the treat!


Here are some yummies from Bakerella. U can look um up on

I love the… You could try to make em too.

Kids are so cute.


I think she’s serious about this, mom. She made a pretty extensive list. You better get baking and pronto.

Oh Ellica … you absolutely made my day. Thank you! And thank you, Teresa, for emailing your daughter’s valentine photos.

Hey Ellica, if you’re reading this … I’m going to send you something, too. Be on the lookout.

Hi! I wanted you to know that I linked to you on my blog. I made some cake pops for Valentine’s Day for my Sunday school class and they were a huge hit! So easy and yummy. Thank you so much for the inspiration and I have to say I am excited to look around even more and try other recipes you have.

or this is so cute! :D

My 9 year old sister is also starting to get very interested in your blog ;) When she’s on the computer, and thinks nobody is looking, she very slowly googles Bakerella, and looks trough the same cupcakes as she did the day before, and the day before that ;)

That’s probably my fault xD I’m babbling about your blog all the time :) Thank you for getting me into baking! : D

That is so wonderful for the Mum and for you. Gorgeous and to be treasured forever.

PS I made a batch of Cakepops for our school Bake Sale here in Cheltenham England last week. They were a BIG hit! Will send you some photos if you like. Think I’ve started a craze, have even had to promise a photo tutorial on facebook with links to UK substitute products. Have you trademarked them yet? You should ;-) xx

Thanks for all the great comments everyone. Yes, Ellica is a doll! Hope you had a sweet day yesterday.

Bakerella, I had Ellica go to your site this morning and she was amazed. She said, “how did that get on there? Did you put it there?” I had to explain that I sent it to you! :) She LOVED seeing it and is thrilled that you liked it so much!

Happy Monday! Teresa

Ellica needs to walk on over to my house and we can Bakerella it up…..Great fact about Ellica–she loves veggies too–I hold her solely responsible for my daughter enjoying brocolli! She shoved it in her mouth when they were babies in preschool together. Sweet girl! Sweeter than a cake pop!

Aw that is SWEET!

I have a question in regards to the cake pops, I tried to make some this weekend in order to practice becuase I want to make the cupcake pops for my baby shower this weekend, and Thank God I did.
The balls were a mess :( Im not sure why but they were so sticky even after freezing them for over an hour. so once i tried to cover them in chocolate they were all soft n sticky again…I used marthas recepie for the cream cheesee frosting, but did not have the paddle attachment to my electric mixer i used the regular attachment so from the start the frosting was not looking fluffy as she said it should on there…could this have been my mistake?
What can I do different so my pops can come out the way they are supposed to for this weekend? I already have everything to make them as my favors.
Thank you so much for all yor wonderful ideas :)

christy said...

SWEET! So, can we get the story behind this? Has Ellica been reading your site on her own or was mom a big fan and Ellica made the card knowing mom was a fan? I’m so curious!

Dear Bestest Baker,
What a sweet little girl. I bet she could learn to make Bakerella treats too. It’s a great way to spend quality time together in the kitchen.
