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!!!!

Congrats! And forget the kiddos, I may just have to buy this for myself since my early attempts at cake pops were quite pitiful! But my boys would enjoy a kit like this, especially the youngest! I am very excited for you and hope you continue to reach for the stars – you deserve every one!! :)

August 21, 2012 09:35 AM

How cute!!! This is the best idea! My daughter loves helping me when I make cake pops and now she can have her own adventures! LOVE it!!!

Kristen @ Sugar & Love said...

This is freaking awesome!! I just got your book a while ago and have been looking for a reason to make Cake Pops!!

August 21, 2012 09:49 AM
Jasmine said...

First of all, congratulations! This is so exciting and amazing!! As an admirer of cake pops, but one who has not actually made them yet, this might actually be a great stepping stone for me to try!

August 21, 2012 09:50 AM
Jen at Cup a Dee Cakes said...

That is such great new, Angie! I don’t have kids, but I could still buy the kits and keep them around, just in case any stop by… right? ;-)

August 21, 2012 09:52 AM
Tanya B said...

You know you’ve made it big when you have your own toy. Congrats on all your success-you’ve earned it! Your incredible creativity deserved to be commended! This will be the perfect birthday present to myself next month!

Kelly said...

You should make those molds for and sell them in packages as well…I may buy the kids pack just for the molds!

Shirley said...

Congratulations! Sharing the love with kids is a wonderful thing! I’ve never been a “baker” and keep telling myself I’m going to take the time to make your cake pops, but I love the blog and read all of your emails. Thanks for sharing with all of us, even “wanna be” bakers!

August 21, 2012 10:06 AM
Tracy said...

Super cute! Just wish there wasn’t so much pink because I think my son would love this. I would love to see a version for boys – ‘robots’, etc.

August 21, 2012 10:10 AM
Rosebud said...

I cannot believe how far you have gone since the beginning! My daughters will love this. Congrats, Bakerella!!!

August 21, 2012 10:10 AM
April Brewer said...

My kids love to go to the book and make cake pops with me too. I will be getting at least 1 of these and I will be using the molds myself!

August 21, 2012 10:11 AM

Juanita Cerda said...

I can’t wait and will be stalking my Toys r Us. My nieces came from San Diego and spent time with me and loved making cakepops with me and I had planned on giving them a cake pop machine since they loved making them so much not to mention eating them, but now I am going to buy them one of these as a gift for Christmas.

August 21, 2012 10:13 AM
Keisha - Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams said...

YOU DESERVE THE GENIUS OF THE YEAR AWARD!!!! My daughter would love this….but I would probably use it more myself!!! hahaha! Congrats to you on this – yay!

August 21, 2012 10:15 AM
Maria said...

Wow! Congratulations! But when you said “toy line” I was really expecting it to be a toy–not a real equipment to make cake pops! I think this would be awesome too in the lines of play dough tools for pretend play :)

August 21, 2012 10:15 AM
Grace Vaught said...

OMGSH!! OMGSH!! I’m 10! I totally am going to buy one! EEESH!

August 21, 2012 10:16 AM
Jennifer said...

Wow! Congratulations! I’ve been folllowing you since the very beginning before cake pops. I am so proud of everything you’ve accomplished!

August 21, 2012 10:17 AM
karen said...

That’s awesome, I make cakepops for church all the time and some people only know me as the cake pop lady. Its a little tiny town and there are only 4 kids that go to the little church that I go to, so I think I will give the kids a class and then get them all one kit for Christmas. Sounds like fun.

August 21, 2012 10:21 AM
Lauri @ MyPinnedLife said...

I am in love with this. How is this marketed to kids?! The colors are cute and fun. I am so going to buy this for myself and I might, might let my younger cousins use it when they come down. This is so exciting for you! Congrats!

August 21, 2012 10:21 AM

Alisha said...

I love it! I just wish it wasn’t so…pink. The kids who would love it in my house are of the male persuasion. I’ll have to tell them that it’s mine, but that I’m letting them use it. My 7 year old has noticed that the products he likes (sewing, baking) come in pink. Hmmm. Not too big of a deal, but he says his friend will tease him.

It’s such a great price!!! I’m pretty certain Santa won’t mind picking it up for me!

Kids toy? I think not! This is so useful for adults too. But I’ll buy one to use with my nieces. They’ll love it.

August 21, 2012 12:21 PM
Simply Om said...

Wow!! How exciting! Congratulations. I would have loved to have gotten those as a gift when I was a little girl. Heck, even now, I would!

August 21, 2012 12:28 PM
Christina Rumore said...

What an awesome product! Congratulations! My daughter is only 3 and to young for this, but that gave me an idea: maybe Playdough would like to partner with you to create a cake pop play dough maker! My daughter could add it to her current collection which includes the cake maker and the ice cream maker ;)

August 21, 2012 12:29 PM
Jennifer said...

SERIOUSLY FANTASTIC!!!! …have to ask who is doing your marketing. This is not a TOY…this is a serious KIT for cake poppers! Toys R Us is fine…but needs to be everywhere cake pop materials are sold. THIS IS GREAT!!!! Yaye Bakerella!!!!!!

August 21, 2012 12:38 PM
Cassy said...

Um, this is adorable! I don’t have kids and I don’t want to borrow any kids, so I may just have to go in there and shamelessly buy a kit for myself, lol.

August 21, 2012 12:38 PM
