Pop Stars

I’ve just added a bunch of cake pop photos to the Pop Stars section to the site. Yay! It’s something productive I can do on the site while I’m still recovering. (I added an update to the previous post. But, in case you didn’t see it, my mom and I are doing great.) You probably already know about this section if you’re a cake pop fan, but if you didn’t, let me tell you about it. I love cake pops. Obviously. I could never have expected the first ones I made to have started such a craze. But they did and it’s been amazing to watch. For a while now I’ve been receiving cake pop photos and stories from readers. Great photos. Creative photos. And I wanted a place to showcase them. There are so many of you doing such fantastic work. And every time I see a new photo or a new pop idea I just smile. I feel so proud of you guys.

To navigate the Pop Stars section, there’s an index with links. Each pop star has it’s own page. I did it this way instead of one page with a slideshow so each person could link to their own page if they wanted to (if they had a blog or website). But you can also use it like a gallery. Each page has arrows to the next pop star to make viewing easier.

Here are a few pops I picked out to give you an idea of what people are doing.


Pop Star Jackie in California makes Justin Bieber pops. Love the hair.


This is such a great use of baking cups from Pop Star Veronika in Australia.


Cupcake pops in pink and blue are another great way to celebrate a baby shower. Check these out from Pop Star Erin.


Pop Star Natalie in California made these Brides of Frankenstein. Love the hair.


Pop Star Karla in Mexico made Bert and Ernie pops. Perfectly done.


How about some Halloween pops? Such a cute assortment from Pop Star Wendy in California. Wendy has been a pop star more than once. Check out her pokemon pops, too.


Pop Star Stephanie and friends in Canada celebrate her bridal shower. Hi everyone. You guys are so cute.


Pop Star Melanie in New Jersey really outdid herself here. Chewbacca kills me.


Yo Gabba Gabba cake pops from Pop Stars Jenna and her mom in Arkansas. These guys are perfect characters to turn into cake pops.


Pop Star Nadia in Toronto made snowglobe pops. Super creative.


Check out these cute Mario mushrooms from Pop Star Kerstin.


Umm… Diet Coke? Yes. Yes. I’m in love with these from Pop Star Vivy in California.


Pop Star Faye in New Jersey made cake pops celebrating her anniversary having diabetes and the medicine that keeps her alive. I love your attitude Faye.


Pop Star Monica made Boston Terriers. Who’s not smiling right now?


South Park Cake Pops from Pop Star Christine in California. Spot on.


Check out these sea life cake pops from Pop Star Cody-Ann in Nevada. Fantastic!


Pop Star Becky in Virginia made Noah’s Ark cake pops. Love the elephants.


Cake pops don’t always have to be cute. How about some gourmet bakla cake pops from Pop Star Lea & Jodi in California.


Pop Star Melissa in California made these adorable Dora the Explorer pops. Swiper is my fave though. Wow.


Okay, this is just too cute. Such a great way to use cake pops from Pop Star Jennifer.


Pop Star Audrey in Iowa made these. The sprinkled pops are just as beautiful to me as the most intricately designed ones. They make me happy inside.

That’s just a sampling of the cake pops you can find in the Pop Stars section.

There are quite a few more you can view.

If you click on the graphic below, it will take you to the index page.

Have fun!

Jeanne – Sorry Jeanne. I added our surgery update to the bottom of the last post. I guess I should have placed it at the top.

Rachel @ Bakerita said...

These are so cute!
The Justin Bieber one definitely made me laugh, but I have to say my favorite is the elephant! So so cute!
I recently made my first cake pops – just vanilla in pink coating with white sprinkles, and they were a total hit!!

I love seeing what everyone does with them!
Glad to see you’re recovering well.

Angie, I have never posted on here but have admired your Cake Pops for a veerry long time. Originally found you via Bloggie awards and PW sites. I have not made Pops (yet) but have drooled over pics since day one. All that is about to change — recently, we went to a big name coffee company (ahem, the green and white one) and we each had our first pops. Though they were good, I’m sure yours are much, much better. My daughter & her friend are so in love with them that we have a Cake Pop day planned next week. When I saw these, I said, “Hey! I *know* the gal that started this!” Apparently, me reading your blog and drooling for years constitutes *knowing* you! lol I’ve since shared your site with the girls (they’re 16) and they’re set to start rolling and decorating! Excited to see the finished product!

On to the real reason for me posting — You’ve blessed so many with your wonderful talent, incredible sense of humor, this blog and your beautiful smile. I am so happy to hear God has blessed YOU with a new kidney and a mother so giving and selfless. You’re both proof that angels do walk among us. May God continue to bless you both and you continue to recoup and heal. Thank you for the years of sweet smiles and we look forward to seeing yours again soon! Hugs from California!

So happy to hear that you and your mom Sandy are healing well. What an inspiration the two of you have been.

I’m sure you will never know how many people you have inspired to be organ donors. I’m sure you have made the kind of contribution through this blog that save lives.

The photos are only a bonus, even if they are a huge bonus. What talent! I love the Pop Stars.

Went on my FB page this morning; since I, myself have been struggling with medical issues (recent hearing loss) and been off for a few week and was soooo excited to see a posting from you. I have been having a hard time excepting my new life with no sound and when I’m down and depressed, I turn to you and all these talented people on your site! Thank you for being there when I needed a distraction and needed to do something to keep going!

I’m so happy to see that you and mom are doing great and having a speedy recovery =). That is a blessing! Me & my daughter met you & mom in Chicago’s (Oak Brook) booksigning. Thank you for all your inspiration and all these pop stars that have so much talent!

It was pure accident that I picked up “Cake Pops” but I am so glad that I did! I never thought that I could learn to make cute art that you can eat. You’ve inspired me to create and try new things during a really hard time in my life. Get better very soon!

I’m so glad you’re doing great!

All of the blogs I read make me so attached to the authors, like they’re a good friend or part of the family. When you first went some time without posting I felt worried. Youre such a trooper for keeping us all informed!

I have to say that I’ve followed your blog for some time, and although I don’t seem to have the patience for cake pops, I have made cake balls several times and they’re always a hit!

Thanks for writing this blog, I look forward to reading it EVERY week.
