The last five signings and some gift sets, too.

The last five book and kit signings were such a blast. When I started the book tour the end of last year I had no idea how much fun they would be and how much I would miss meeting you guys when they were all over. Thank you so much to everyone that came out to one of the 20+ signings. Along the way I have tried to get pictures of everyone that came by to say hi and also recap each city on the site. This time I combined the last several cities in one big giant post.

San Francisco, Orlando, Phoenix, San Diego and Austin.

There are a few photos from each city below as well as slideshows of all the photos from each. Feel free to use any of the pics from flickr if you find one of yourself.

It was so great starting off the signings at Chronicle Books Headquarters in San Francisco. Say hi to Emily. She designed the kit and the notecards box sets. So so cute.

C-IMG_5192

There’s nothing like watching the excitement on little ones faces when they look through the book. It’s still such a gift for me to see.

There were lots of fun and friendly faces in San Francisco.

C-IMG_5310

Like sweet Melissa of Best Friends for Frosting. She did a little interview with me while she was there.

Here’s the San Francisco Slideshow…

The Barnes and Noble in Orlando brought more friendly faces.

Like my friend Robyn from Add a Pinch. She lives out of state, but made time during her family Disney vacation to stop by. She really is the super sweetest.

O-IMG_6631

And here’s Julie from The Little Kitchen. So glad to see your smiling face!

I just want to take a minute to thank everyone at all the signings over the last year or so that brought such sweet gifts to share.

O-IMG_6650

You guys made me feel so special through your many talents and your kind words. I can think of several right now that even brought tears. Sweet happy tears.

Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my happy heart.

Here’s the Orlando Slideshow…

The Phoenix Barnes and Noble was a lot of fun, too.

P-1

These girls were a blast. They were a great group of bloggers that all came to the event together.

Cute suede shoes. Guess which ones are mine.

I met Amy of Amy Miller Designs. She makes faux cupcake ornaments and shipped some special cake pop ornaments for me a while ago. And look at these Muppets she brought to the signing. They are faux Muppet Cake Pops. And they are fantastic! I need to take a better pic and share it on Twitter.

P-IMG_6874

This is Jennifer. Check out her site if you make lots and lots of cake pops at a time. She has a cake ball roller that could help you out.

P-IMG_6883

It’s Phoenix. We had to have some cactus cake pops of course. Excellent use of white jimmies, Arianna!

Here’s the Phoenix Slideshow…

San Diego. Yay!

Check out Kris. She makes the fantastic hot air balloon cake pops and much more.

And look at these Marshmallow Treats by Alejandra. Amazing.

D-IMG_7340

Look at this cutie pie!

D-IMG_7331

Hi there little one. So glad to meet you and your mom and learn what we have in common. Big big hug!

D-IMG_7411

And sweet Julie from Jaybird Quilts. My mom and I had the most fun talking with you.

Here’s the San Diego Slideshow…

………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The last book signing was in Austin at Book People.

A-IMG_3432

My friends Georgia Pellegrini, The Girl Hunter and Marla of Family Fresh Cooking came with me to the signing. Love you guys! We all had plans with several more bloggers the next day for a fun Girl Hunter Getaway hosted by Georgia. More on that soon.

There was lots of signing. And some note taking, too.

A-IMG_8390

There were hugs…

And even some extraordinary chickens.

Here’s the Austin Slideshow…

That’s it for the signings. For now anyway. ; )

Oh, and big thanks for the awesome marquis sign, Book People. That was a nice surprise.

If you are near any of these stores (addresses here), I left behind some signed books and kits if you want to give them a call and see if there are any left.

If you aren’t near any of the stores, that’s ok, too. I thought I would do an end-of-the-year giveaway to anyone that wanted a chance to win some Cake Pops stuff.

I’m giving away five (5) Cake Pops gift sets that include:

Untitled-1

A signed Cake Pops book, the Cake Pops Kit and the notecards set, too.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

And if you’ve managed to make your way this far down on the post, that’s not all.

Did you know that Cake Pops is available on the iPad? That’s not very helpful unless you have an iPad though.

So one (1) of the five winners will also win a brand new 16 gb WiFi iPad. Yay!

………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Enter for a chance to win a Cake Pops Gift Set that includes a signed Cake Pops book, a Cake Pops Kit and a Cake Pops Notecard Set.

  • Five (5) winners will be chosen at random to win a gift set. One (1) of the five winners will then be selected at random and will also win a 16 gb WiFi iPad in their choice of white or black. (That means 4 gift set winners and 1 gift set plus iPad winner.) Yay!
  • To enter, just leave your answer to the following question in the comments section of this post.

  • Deadline to enter is Tuesday, December 20th at 8:00 P.M. ET. Sorry, Time’s Up. Winners announced below.

goof ball that i am, I forgot to answer the question– last gift i purchased someone– i don’t usually purchase gifts, usually i make them (crochet) but i’d say it was a egg gift set for a child- you can take the eggs apart and put them together and they squeak when you press on their heads. they remind me of cakepops! :)

I love love love your site. Anticipating each and every creation is so fun. But, I’m becoming so discouraged as each and every time I attempt making cake pops, I always fail. The cake balls I’ve learned to live with how they look. Still can’t get the dipping to look smooth like yours, but the cake pops, just won’t stay on the stick no matter what I try. What am I doing wrong?? Can you help me? I followed your video to a T and as soon as I dip the stick comes right out. Why do the keep falling off?? Hope you can help me with this? I’ve asked for your book for Christmas, hope I get it. Thanks for all you do.

Angie,
Thank you for signing my surprise Christmas gift from my daughter in law, Heather and son, Sean while you were in San Diego. I had just mentioned it to them in an email, and was blown away when I received the Cake Pops book and Cake Pops kit (both signed) as a Christmas gift! I even posted my pix of them on my FB page! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas & New Years and that you get some much deserved rest after your many book signings! Bless you and keep creating! I LOVE your blog!

Hi Angie, I finally got my Cake Pops book on Boxing Day when I happened upon it at a shop in Brisbane, Australia. So excited. Our family enjoyed cake pops and balls as part of their Christmas take home treat boxes and I have also convinced my neighbours of how cute and delicious they are. Hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday period and if you are ever making a trip to Australia, please put Queensland on your list.
PS Love the shoes!!

Hi, I want to wish you a happy new new year. Thank you for delighting us with your blog. I am having difficulty with the cake pops, the cake ball does not stay in place when I put the stick. I have rested them in the refrigerator, but the stick comes through anyways. When I frost them, they don`t hold up. Can you help me – please. I can`t get them to stick. Thank you
