Spot on

I know I just posted Muppet Cake Pops, but I have some more character pops to show you. Hope you don’t mind seeing pops back to back like this. I usually space them out with other goodies in between, but these just went live Wednesday and I wanted to share them with you.

I did them for Target’s recently launched blog, A Bullseye View. It’s a behind-the-scenes online magazine for the brand.


I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty excited about being able to make cake pops for them and getting to work with one of the stores I’ve shopped at forever. Pretty cool.

And pretty cool that they carry my Cake Pop Kit and Book, too. I actually saw them both at the store yesterday when I was picking up a few things for Thanksgiving. Awesomeness!


FYI, the book is on sale if you’re looking to get one.

I get giddy when I see these in stores. Still so unbelievable to me.

Anyway, want to see the cake pops I made?

Think spots.




Or rather Bullseyes.

Target’s adorable little Bull Terrier mascot in cake pop form.

Visit A Bullseye View to see how to make them.

And if you want to stay on Target, follow them on twitter @aBullseyeView.


Now, I know these are specific and spotted and you’re not likely to have a Target-themed birthday party anytime soon, but you can definitely use these cake pops as a base to create other doggie designs. These are pretty different from the Puppy Pops in my book, so take a look and get your creative juices flowing.

And if you could care less about cake pops, that’s ok, too. You might like this.

When I was at Target, I saw a cute little Bullseye Gift Card at the checkout. So I couldn’t resist grabbing a few to give away with this post.

So here goes.


Enter for a chance to win one of three (3) $100 Target Gift Cards.

  • Just leave a comment on this post and tell me what you’d buy. Electronics, toys, groceries, Christmas gifts, clothes, candy? Do tell.
  • Deadline to enter is Sunday, November 20th at 5 pm ET. SORRY, TIME’S UP!
  • Three $100 winners will be chosen at random and announced sometime Sunday evening on this post.

Good luck.

Ruff. Ruff.

P.S. This giveaway is offered by and sponsored by me.

Okay, I just picked the three winners of the $100 Target Gift Certificates. Yay! Yay! Yay! And here they are…


Congratulations Marianna, Corinne and Suzanne. Have fun shopping!

Oh geez! What wouldn’t I buy?! I’ve had my eye on a coverlet/quilt for our bed, so I’d probably get that, and then spend the rest on household stuff I need. Crossing my fingers REALLY REALLY REALLY HARD.

THESE ARE SOOOOOOO Cute!! I would get some Christmas gifts for my kids. I have 7 foster children, so I am always buying clothes. I actually would probably buy mostly clothes, because they’re all growing like weeds and need new clothes.

Hmmm…….I would definitely buy your cake pop kit as I don’t have that yet (but I do have and LOVE your book). Other than that, anything in the kitchen department of Target is awesome. Love everything they have. Your Target cake pops are adorable and the Muppets are AMAZING. You truly outdo yourself everytime. Look at this whole cake pop revolution you have started!! Bakerella Rocks!!

Keep up the wonderful work! You’ve definitely earned the excitement of having a cool book (and kit) being sold in stores. =-)

A gift card to Target would be so helpful for Christmas time – gifts for the kids and family – but honestly I’ll probably be a little selfish too and buy the Cake Pops book and kit – I would LOVE to get them and I haven’t yet, awesome that they sell it at Target!!!

Sandy Pruder said...

Oh, I never tire of seeing those adorable little cakepops you create…… $100.00 from Target, of course a little stuffed puppie to watch over what goes on in the kitchen, and a selfish baker, who would spend the rest buying extra “goodies/baking supplies” for my try at creating some “pop critters” for my family for Christmas.
