It’s Play Time!

I have some really fun Cake Pops news to announce today. I’m not even sure where to begin because I still can’t believe it myself.

First… I’ve said this before, but I could have never imagined the kind of wonderful adventure that I’ve been on since first posting cake pops here on this website. And when I say adventure – it’s everything from the book, to all of you that I’ve met and to each and every email and story that you’ve shared. Every smile that you’ve given me and all of the proud moments each time I see the cake pops you guys are creating. You make my life brighter. All because of a little cake on a stick.

Now, like I said, I have something super exciting to share with you.

So …… I’m just going to say it.

Here goes… I’m kinda nervous.

This is so crazy…

I have a toy line coming out next month at Toys R Us!

Cake Pops by Bakerella Toy

It’s a Cake Pops Toy! Like for real.

I told you. Crazy, right?! But sooo exciting! Butterflies in my stomach exciting.

The toy is inspired by my book and lets little ones play and create cake pops at home.

One thing that I wasn’t expecting after the book came out was how much kids enjoyed making cake pops. Not just eating them, but making them. And even younger children that would ask for the book as their bedtime story. Some even used it as a learning tool – like using the photo index in the back as a matching game to find the recipe.  When I was first approached to do a toy I wasn’t expecting it, but when I thought about all those sweet stories, a toy seemed like a perfect way to let kids enjoy cake pops even more … and a yummy way to inspire creativity. Plus, I feel like I’m playing most of the time in the kitchen anyway. Perfect fit.

Cake Pops Toy

This is The Ultimate Cake Pops Set and it comes with a sweet cake pop stand, cake pop tray, mixing bowl, dipping bowl, cake crumbler, and presses to help you make four different cake pop shapes. And there’s lollipop sticks and an instructional placemat, too.

Just grab some cake, frosting and candy coating and kids can start creating.

They’ll call it an excuse to play with their food. And I hope they have a blast doing it.

Cake Pops Toy

I do. I’ve been having fun using the toy since I received the production samples. (And I’m loving the pink cake pop stand. Yay!)

It’s good for kids of all ages I guess.

Actually… this could pretty easily be an adult product.  You can get one for your kids and use it for yourself. I won’t tell.

The shapes you can make include, circle, square, triangle and cupcake!

Cake Pops Toy

I cannot get over this.

Cake Pops Molds Set

Here’s another toy in the line.

This is the Cake Pops Molds Set and it comes with one press, and molds to make three different cake pop shapes (bear, flower and heart) … Plus instructions and lollipop sticks, too.

Both toys will be available at Toys R Us this September ($19.99 and $7.99 I think). You’ll be able get it in stores or online.

Check out the Ultimate Cake Pops Set and the Cake Pops Molds Set at Toys R Us.


And, in Canada, you can find the toys in Wal-Mart stores.

And in Australia, look at Myer Stores in October.

Stay tuned and I’ll let you know when it hits the shelves. I’ll probably be stalking the stores until it does.

It’s in Toys R US now!!!!

Wow! Congratulations! That is so exciting! The molds look like something even I could use!!

Belinda said...

OMG! How thrilling for you!! Will these be available in Australia!? Forget the kids, I want one for myself!! :)

Luke in Chicago said...

MommaBean said...

That’s awesome! My kids LOVE making cake pops with me. We use it as a creativity building exercise. I should send you the amazing variety of Easter bunnies they did last year. Long, curlicued mustaches, Jackie-O inspired ladies with hats and earrings, you name it. We consider them some awesome mom and kid time… and we make them with any excuse (or no excuse at all). The toy is a fab idea, keep up the great work (and yes, I’ll be getting it just for the molds!).

August 21, 2012 01:43 AM
Love JK said...

Huge congrats!! That is wonderful news and it looks SUPER CUTE!! So very happy for you…think this will be filling the stockings of many friends and family (big and little!) if it hits the shelves in Australia in time for Christmas. xx

Joey Cosentino said...

This is AMAZING! It’s so cool to see someone’s dreams come true and go far beyond they would have ever thought. I’m not ashamed to say I’m a male baker and I totally want one! I started out making royal icing decorated sugar cookies and then gave cake pops a try! I’m hooked on cake pops!!!

Congratulations on this wild adventure.

August 21, 2012 01:47 AM

Christi said...

That’s great! I don’t have kids, but my nieces love to help me make cake pops. My 12 year old niece was actually my biggest helper making 500 cake pop (and 5 other desserts) for a large wedding. I can’t wait to get this for them! I really want one for myself too…I love the molds!!!

August 21, 2012 01:54 AM
Christina Bryant said...

You should also come up with an adult kit to sell exclusively at Michael’s. It could come with a cake pop stand, molds, decorating ideas booklet and decorations. I would buy one for everyone in my family. You could even give me a free one for coming up with the amazing multi-million dollar idea.

August 21, 2012 01:56 AM
Leah said...

Crazy awesome! I LOVE it!!! My girls will totally be getting this for Christmas! And I think I will need my own ;o) LOVE YOU BAKERELLA, YOU ROCK!

Haha wish I had this when I was a kid….actually this would probably come in useful for me now too ;P

August 21, 2012 01:59 AM
Ansley said...

This is SO exciting!! I wish there was a way you could see each and every little person who has success making their own cake pops… what an amazing inspiration you are – and have been! :) Yay!!

August 21, 2012 01:59 AM
lori lucas said...

August 21, 2012 02:05 AM
Jane said...

This is fab, will they be available in the UK??

August 21, 2012 02:05 AM
Allyson said...

I am crying for you! I am so happy for you! If anyone deserves this happiness, it is sweet and wonderful you! My daughter’s birthday is in October (perfect gift) and this will be my go to gift for the non-stop birthday parties during the school year! So amazing!

Even better: My daughter has a nut allergy and has been pining over an easy bake oven for years, but all of the mixes have some form of nut in them. With this toy, I don’t have to put her safety at risk for her to have fun! I am thrilled. Congratulations on another job well done!

August 21, 2012 02:06 AM
Cindy C said...

This looks like so much fun! And I bet the results will be tastier than those easy-bake-oven desserts ;)

August 21, 2012 02:06 AM
Yael said...

Wow this is fantastic, my girls just love it and want one, but we don’t live in America, will it be available in the UK?

August 21, 2012 02:07 AM
Gretchen said...

My daughters love helping make cake pops but I’m not sure who would love these more them or ME! Hope they are available in Australia soon. Congratulations

August 21, 2012 02:09 AM
April Durham said...

I think I’m WAY behind the times on this one, but did you INVENT cake pops? That sounds REALLY stupid…but the fact that you put your site next to the name “cake pop” and the general fashion in which this post is worded makes me feel like you may have. Please correct me if I’m completely inept.

But seriously…that’s AMAZING. What a perfect idea!

August 21, 2012 02:10 AM
Kristi said...

This is amazing! Congratulations to you! I can’t wait to buy this for my son, because he loves making them, and showing my MIL!

August 21, 2012 02:11 AM
Kelly said...

Whew… for a moment there I thought you were going to end with “… call me maybe!”

August 21, 2012 02:11 AM
Alejandra said...

Oh yes! I’m in the “Make it available in UK” list! God willing, I’m moving there sooner rather than later… Being in Honduras makes it somewhat easy to get things only available in the US, but being in the UK might be complicated…

August 21, 2012 02:12 AM
Isa said...

WOW! I love it!! So happy for you :-) will this be available sometime in Spain? Pleeease say YES! :-) can’t wait for you christmas cake pop book to come out! (mine is on pre-order yay!)

August 21, 2012 02:14 AM
Christy said...

I’m going toy shopping! How great are these. Tell whoever is making these to bust out a full line for us Mommies and Wives!

August 21, 2012 02:17 AM
CS said...

How cool! I’m so happy you’re receiving so much popularity. You’re still my favorite blogger because you’re always so cheerful and nice, so I’m really glad good things are still coming your way.

LuAnn said...

I’m so excited for you, this is an amazingly fun product! Move over Easy Bake Oven! My kids made cake pops at Christmas and my son has autism and he had the best time! This will certainly make it easier for him than the rolling! We’ve always been into molding chocolate, etc., but the cake pops are so fun and different everyone loves them! I agree with the lady that said make an adult kit! Also, I have to admit…it’s one of my fondest wishes… I really thought you were going to announce you were getting your own TV show. You so deserve it, you are so creative and your creativity just keeps growing! I never know what surprise will pop up in my mailbox! When it says “Bakerella”, I open it right away! So excited for the toy! Sure there is a show in your future! ;) I can’t wait! Best wishes!

August 21, 2012 02:58 AM
Nati said...

Congrats!! Making cake pops with my children is always so much fun, they are 4 and 2, and still they help so much with the decoration! I hope it will available in Europe (The Netherlands) too by Christmas, this will be a perfect gift (= cadeau) for us… Yeah, yeah, the kids and myself!! Thanks for your creativity!

August 21, 2012 02:59 AM
Jamie said...

Oh wow!!!!
My daughter, Lucia Blue, will be 2 next month. She has no idea, but she really, really wants this…to play with in about 3 or 4 years! It’s ok, I can buy it and pack it away, right?! :-)

LuAnn Braley said...

I can totally see my teen boys getting this for their younger sister…so she can make them cake pops! It is so cool that there are different shapes; I had totally not seen that before.
