Time to open presents

Lollipop Workshop Goodies

Remember these? That’s right. We opened them. And, let me just tell you. Somebody needs to invent a stronger word for cute. Because what’s inside these boxes… cute… just doesn’t do them justice.


I waited for my little helper to come visit again before I opened mine. But, you knew I was going to do that anyway, didn’t you?

I let her open first. She was so excited. But of course she would be. Receiving a totally unexpected gift is always fun.

From the Lollipop Workshop

Oh, the suspense. What is it? Tear open that bubble wrap will you. And, hurry it up. I can’t wait.

From the Lollipop Workshop

Oh, I think it’s a doll.

From the Lollipop Workshop

Yes, it’s a precious little lolli doll. Can you stand it?


Okay. Okay. My turn. Move over.

From the Lollipop Workshop

While I opened my box, she took the opportunity to accessorize her doll with ribbon from the wrapping.

Of course.

Then, I quickly removed it for a photo session. (Sorry, sweetie.)

Just look at her doll. So adorable and wait… she’s even holding a tray of cake balls.

Now, what did I get?

From the Lollipop Workshop

Me? I’m a doll, too … and with my own little tray of cake balls. I think I will explode from all the cuteness.

But… it gets even cuter.

Wanna see?

Can you handle it?

Are you sure?

Okay then, you can look…

From the Lollipop Workshop

There’s even a dessert table complete with cake pops. It’s like a miniature scene from an Amy Atlas event.

Life support, please. Crash cart anyone? I may not make it.

From the Lollipop Workshop

Just look at it from the other side. Somebody has really tee-niny hands to work so small.

From the Lollipop Workshop

There’s even a Bakerella sign. Okay, that did me in.

From the Lollipop Workshop

But wait, something’s missing.

From the Lollipop Workshop

Okay, that’s better… I almost forgot about you. The desserts distracted me.

From the Lollipop Workshop

Now. Perfect.


Thanks Lollipop Workshop for the sweet surprise. You really, REALLY made our day!

Check out the Lollipop Workshop etsy store.
She makes custom pieces like these in addition to the ones from the cupcake topper giveaway.

I love the look of your new blog! You did a great job with it — simply beautiful. I subscribed to the new RSS feed and noticed that you switched to a partial feed — where you used to have full feed like Pioneer Woman. I hope you switch back… the full feed is so much easier on this lazy reader!

hope you enjoy your stay there!

P.S.: I wonder is it me or this website takes a little slower than usual to load especially when I’m commenting.

I love the new site. Very cute design! However, I usually read your posts in my RSS reader and now they’re showing truncated messages! I hope you decide to switch it back to the full posts, because the truncated ones are so annoying.

Love your new blog! I am having trouble finding my way around, but im sure I will get used to it. That was such an adorable gift!! I always brag about your recipes on my recipe site and steal a picture from your post. I hope that is ok! Please let me know if would like me to not use your photos. They are just so appealing!! :)

oh my, I’m loving this blog!!! I’m already hooked and addicted with your pops and all. It’s my first time to be here… I actually found this through a comment on Martha Stewart’s webbiesite while I was looking for easy cupcake recipes. I’m trying to learn baking 101. And now after me drooling over your cakes for more than 7 hours (torture :p), Oh my I’m very much excited for the next weekend. Hope I’ll have lots of time and power but Imma gonna try the lollies… the cuppies… the cakes.. those with chocolates!!

By the way, nice gifts! Are they edible? I bet if they are you wouldn’t let even an ant have a bite! Safe and super sealed! :)

I totally see the resemblance! Too cute for words! You’re absolutely right, they need a new word for “beyond cute”… may I submit “swoolt” (sweet, cool and cute together)??

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness! How adorable!!! Wouldn’t it be fantastic if we all could be made into a little scene such as this? Just breathtaking.

Self brag, I wrapped some presents with swirly lollipops and bright papers and bows a few years ago. HUGE hit. Lollipops just make everything perfect.

Especially cake pops ;)

Newly subscribed to your blog. I think I may be in heaven now.
