An update


Things are getting closer. It looks like the book will be available a little earlier than expected. In September instead of October online and in stores in October. Yay! I can’t wait to hold one. Then, I might finally believe this is all really happening.

It’s going to be hardcover and Wire-O bound so it will lay flat, which I love. 160 pages with more than 40 cake pop projects. Some you’ve seen here on the site and some you haven’t. It also has step-by-step photos showing how to make basic cake pops and how to dip them. Visuals help, so I hope it answers some of your questions, too.

Anyway, just wanted to give you an update. And, if you want to peek at the cover, hop on over to any of the sites below. You can even get a pretty good pre-order price at a couple of them.


Barnes and Noble


Chronicle Books

Note: The pops in the background are some of the ones that will be in the book. You may even recognize a few. And if you’re wondering about cartoon characters… there are only generic pops in the book. No Winnie, Mickey or Hello Kitty.

  99. Angie,
    Congrats on the book! I can’t wait to get a copy. And to poster #96, use peanut butter melts from Wilton. They will harden and taste great!
    best, amanda

  100. I was wondering if you had a recipe for chocolate cake balls dipped in peanut butter?? Can this work or will the peanut butter never harden well enough? Thanks!

  101. I couldn’t wait, I had to order. What a fun surprise it will be when the nice man brings me a package. Yippppppeeeeeeee!
    Congrats Bakerella!

  102. Congrats! The cover looks so pretty! I can’t wait!

  103. I live in Japan and it is difficult to find good materials for baking like back home (I’m Canadian). I don’t think I could produce pops like you can, and in fact many of the treats on food blogs from the US are difficult to reproduce here, due to availability of items and oven dimensions. Anyway, I am still going to buy one of your beautiful books because a) I love your blog, it’s so pretty and positive. So much of the internet is negative self indulgent garbage. And b) you clearly put a ton of work into your blog and the book. I will have to save it for a few years, but I am sure it is a quality product, and you can believe I will be making all of the pops when I move back to Canada. And by the way, I have a niece in the US who is around the same age as yours, I believe. She was just a baby when I met her, and looking at your pictures helps me imagine what fun it would be to bake with my niece some day. Thank you, and good luck with your book sales. If it’s as enjoyable and polished as your blog, it is sure to be a roaring success.

  104. Yay! I love to look at them almost as much as eating them!! : ) I’m thinking it’s about time to make some more…just because. If only they were a little less time consuming to create. Can’t wait for the book!

  105. Congrats! I’m so very happy for you! Cannot wait to see it.

  106. How exciting. Now you and Pioneer Woman can tour together! TWO FOR ONE! I’m in.

  107. HURRY I can’t wait! I hope u put some secrets about getting the chocolate smooth.

  108. EEEEKKKKKK ! HOW EXCITING….oh i so want one!

  109. Congratulations! What an exciting time for you. I am really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy. Enjoy your success!

  110. I got mine ordered and I am anxiously looking forward to its arrival. Kuddo’s to you on a job well done. You deserve all the fanfare this will bring you. In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy your blog. Thaks. Lori L

  111. Yay! Can’t wait to get the book! :) The binding will be so much easier to use.

  112. I’m SO happy for you!!!

  113. I’m so excited – I’ve been waiting for the release date!!! I’m planning on giving these as Christmas gifts to my girlfriends this year! Perfect timing! You’re so very talented!

  114. I am so excited about your book!!! Anyone that I know who likes to bake fun things…I tell them about your site!!! I love it!!

  115. I just mark down in my calendar to remind me :-)
