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!!!!

Jessica M said...

This is amazing! I want one for myself! My 5 year old son, though, has a suggestion. Less pink packaging and perhaps a boy on the box. Boys love making cake pops too! I personally think it’s adorable! Congratulations!

August 21, 2012 05:06 AM
Mélanie said...

Wow, congratulations !!!!

August 21, 2012 05:16 AM

That sounds like an awesome little toy. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty crumbling the cake and mixing the frosting, but it would be nice to have the little molds!

Joy Carter said...

Congratulations. You have just announced the Easy Bake Oven of the Millennium. But this tool allows the creativity that the oven never did. Without the risk of getting burned. This will foster as many future bakers as the Food Channel.

Kudos. I’m getting one for myself! So happy for you!

Memoria said...

While I am truly truly honestly so happy for you and your success with cake pops, I must admit I am so saddened by the photo on the front of your toy. You may have not had a say in it, but I would think in the year 2012, we would have stopped showing just female children involved in baking toy activities. Would it have been so hard to have a boy and a girl on the front? :(

Anyway, back on topic. CONGRATULATIONS!

August 21, 2012 08:14 AM
Michelle Nothvogel said...

This is no toy! This is something more for me!!! I know what my neices will be getting for Christmas! Yeah Angie! Cheers to you on your continuing success!

That is astounding! I know a few kids I would love to get this for. Such a great idea. Unrelated, Angie I thought about you when I sprinkled the heck out of my son’s birthday cake with jimmies and glitter and nonpareils (picture on my blog if you want to see it). I can’t wait for this!

August 21, 2012 08:33 AM

Elizabeth said...

this is so awesome!! I may just have to get one for myself!! The molds would be great for truffles too.

August 21, 2012 08:51 AM
Stacie said...

Congratulations on your new venture!!! I look forward to trying this so my daughter can enjoy cooking like I did when I was little. So I really (really) hope these are bite size at least. It looks totally awesome, but pictures can be deceiving so I’m containing my excitement for this product until I see a real one.

I’m skeptical because I got my 4 y/o an EasyBake Oven last Christmas. Horrible, horrible product!! Nothing like the one I had as a kid. Will either be in our next garage sale or get donated – although I don’t know why anyone would want one! Her grandparents got her one too. They used it once and pitched it (we used ours 3x). So between us, the ovens & mixes = $100+ that was totally wasted.

August 21, 2012 08:57 AM
WendyBrz said...

So happy for you! I gave your book to two adorable teen girls well over a year ago, and they were so delighted with it. The younger set will enjoy these sweet toys too!
