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!!!!

Grace said...

@bakerella , you might never see this, but i have a couple of questions for you.. well, i’m 13. my goal in life is to become a baker. Cakes, cookies, cupcakes. you know the rest. (: well, my question is, are there any certain baking utensils that i absolutely need to decorate things with? Like, what are all the utensils i need for decorating to happen. If you don’t understand my question, or if you have an answer to my question (omg. that would be amazing!) you can talk to me at gracie331@gmail.com. Thanks! I love your cake pops, and i hope to be like you! thanks for inspiring me! (:

I could simply answer this question myself but I am not at work (Assistant Manager at Babies R Us) so I will ask here. Will your set only be sold at Wal Mart in Canada or both TRU and Wal Mart?

My granddaughter is only 4 months old but I think we’ll be needing these to bake with in the near future. We’ve got kidney donors and recipients in our family, so we totally celebrate your every success and happiness.

Can we arrange an exchange of some money for these awesome “toys”. I would loooooooooooove these but am in Australia and I don’t see them coming out here for a while. Thanks so much. Melissa

Cake Pops toy is avilable through the Toy’s R Us online store right now :) There is no image but you can search “Cake pops” and it comes up. Just ordered one for my little cousins!

August 23, 2012 09:47 AM
Lynn said...

How exciting!! So happy for you. I’ve got your book and love making cake pops. I’m so happy to see some blue included too – my boys love baking with mommy but normally won’t let me buy things like an Easy Bake Oven because it’s way too girly so thank you for not making it all pink. :) Also, the prices seem very reasonable – especially for Toys R Us. Can’t wait for an “adult” version of this too!

August 23, 2012 10:48 AM
Winnie said...

This is awesome! I love that you are having new opportunities with your great idea and branching out…So cool!

Wish they had made it in neutral colors, my boys would LOVE this!! My daughter would too especially, but my boys might have a harder time using it, and they love to cook!! Can they make a gender neutral please!!!

August 23, 2012 11:57 AM

I got a copy of this product to review. So tomorrow my sister, who makes some great cake pops on her own and loves your stuff, is coming over to use the kit with my daughter who is 4 3/4 and who cannot wait to try this out.. We picked up two cake mixes and two containers of frosting as well as three bags of candy, plus candy decorative pens and edible gold stars. We’re going to make the cupcake cake pops from the kit. My review will be hitting my blog tomorrow night with plenty of photos. We’re so excited to use the kit.

August 27, 2012 09:48 PM
Mona said...

WOW! Thats so great! You go girl! And Im going for the toy store (Can I use my 12 year old girl or my 8 year old by as an excuse to by it?).

AHHHH! We were in Walmart today and saw your Cake Pops Mold Set (the accessory) and didn’t realize until we got home that there was a starter kit as well – but our store didn’t have it. I’ll have to keep looking!
My daughter bought the accessory kit with her own money – she’s sold excited!!
