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!!!!

That is so exciting for you and for us! When I was growing up I had all of the coolest playfood toys and easybake oven-this is amazing- my daughter will love this! Me too! I can’t wait to use it…

logan said...

AWESOME! when i was reading about it I was like uh for me! We may be getting several sets around our house.

August 21, 2012 01:59 PM
Angela in KY said...

Awesome! Looks like something I’d buy for the kiddos but keep it in the kitchen and use it for myself!

August 21, 2012 02:03 PM
Katie said...

This is so awesome! My 5 year old is constantly asking to make cake pops with me, and I hesitate letting her help when I’m making them for other people. This will be a perfect way to let her do her own while I am busy making mine!

I showed her the pictures and she already has this listed as the #1 item on her Christmas list!
Thanks for another great idea!!

August 21, 2012 02:04 PM
Lori said...

super fabulous! putting it on christmas list for all little girls I buy for!

August 21, 2012 02:11 PM
Danielle C said...

This is such a great gift idea! My sister wants to be a chef and she loves to bake sweet things for us to try. I’m thinking Christmas gift. Thank you!

Linda said...

I KNOW my 1yo granddaughter will love this in a few years, after I have it all figured out and broken in. I’d hate for her to have to figure it out on her own….

August 21, 2012 02:44 PM
Lyndsi said...

LOVE THESE! My girls are definitely getting one of these! They love making cake pops with me, and now they’ll be able to really take part in the whole thing! They’re only 3 & 4, so it’s been a bit difficult for them in the past.

August 21, 2012 02:48 PM

sophie said...

hi bakerella!! thats great! im 13 and might be a bit big for toys, but i want this!! and i wanted to ask you a question… what kind of candy coating do you use? a certain kind? wilton is too thick! everyone says put in some oil or shortening to thin it out, but no matter how much i put in, it is still too thick! i have watched several of your videos, and your melts are so nice and runny! thanks bakerella! i really appreciate it!!! love, sophie. :)

Mary T., Illinois said...

HOW EXCITING AND WONDERFUL FOR YOU!! To have your blogs name on something that will be marketed to millions. Just think, when kids look back on their childhood memories, like we do now, and remember all the fun toys they had to play with, think how well remembered your “Cake Pops” will be!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

August 21, 2012 04:26 PM
Stella said...

This is amazing. Hope we’ll get them in London. You should think of doing an adult line as well. Especially the moulds.

August 21, 2012 04:59 PM
Mary said...

That is awesome!! Making cupcake style cakepops was the hit of my 6 year old’s birthday party. I can’t wait til it come out!

Maryanne said...

Since my kids a mostly grown, I don’t frequent toy stores as much. I think I will have to make a special trip to look for these kits, though, and buy them all for me!

August 21, 2012 05:18 PM
Holly said...

Kids? Heck, *I* want this!! Although I think it would be WAY cool for my nieces to have also. Hmmm…. Thanks, Bakerella! This is GREAT!!

August 21, 2012 05:22 PM

Debbie F. said...

So totally getting this! My kids (ages 5-1 1/2) look through the book weekly and LOVE it! If only Mommie would take the time to make some- this will be a hit and will motivate me to not only make them, but have them make their own. Yea!

Rachel you-lani kami de raymond ce celia p. zitowski said...

I don’t know how to read so this wouldn’t be a good idea for me. But Toys R us is my favorite store. How do they get the R backwards on that? I don’t know how they do that is there like a special key that makes it go backwards or something like that? WILL SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION??? I Am really tired of trying to get a backwards R. I mean…yeah. Well thanks! I love you AMERICA!

August 21, 2012 07:20 PM
Irit said...

Oh my goodness!!! I’m so happy for you! ^_^
I’ve been following your blog for few years now, and I’m really happy that you are doing so great and having so much success! ^_^

Brieanna guiteeni ravioli porter said...

Dear Rachel you-lani kami de raymond ce celia p. zitowski,
First of all you are totally in violation of all rules of physics. The R that they have on their sign is not backwards but rotated and all of your grammar is wrong. Everybody agrees with me that you are a wacko. Anyway, the cake ball things look horrible!!! And I LOVE YOU NEW ZELAND!!

August 21, 2012 07:25 PM
Steph said...

OMG I just told my hubby I want one for my birthday. I am a pre-k teacher and my hubby has lots and lots of little cousins that I LOVE cooking with and have been wanting to do cake pops with them. Since we don’t have kids yet its a great excuse to play :) so exciting! This is so awesome for you to have come so far since your first cake pops!
