I went to get a few groceries and found this looking back at me. This is the coolest thing. I couldn’t wait to show you. More about it soon… once I stop pinching myself.

P.S. I don’t usually have my camera handy when I’m buying butter, but I thought it might come in handy this time.

Any chance someone could buy an extra copy for me, I will pay for it plus postage to Australia!! And I want a Cake Pop book too… please!! I can return the favour wherever possible (I think the Planet Cake books are popular worldwide, and they’re easy for me to get, plus they’ve just released a new Planet Cake Cupcake book as well).

Please email me at if you can help :)

Congrats again Bakerella, you have done so well to be known around the world, no wonder you need to pinch yourself xo

congrats on all the great new publishing!
i cant wait to find my copy at the grocery store this week!

quick question:
how long do the pops last for? do i need to freeze them? i want to make them as party favors but not sure how early i can make them and how long i can keep them for.
any answers would be great!

I was so excited to see this on the newsstand yesterday – I showed it off to my family (like I personally know you or something). Wish you were coming to Phonix for a book signing – maybe on your second round?
