And I hope they make you smile!

Peppermint Cake Pop Ornament

And yay, you can totally hang these cuties on your tree.

But the best part is they’ll stay sweet. No spoiling.

When Amy first surprised me with some cupcake pop ornaments, I liked them so much I ordered a bunch without the hanger so I could keep them on display all year long. Then last year I met Amy at my Phoenix Book signing and she surprised me yet again with these Muppet Cake Pops to match the real ones I made. I was blown away. So, I thought it would be fun to see what she could do with some designs from the book. Amy came up with these cute cake pop ornaments and I’m completely in love. So I bought a few extra sets to share with you guys. Amy is awesome. When she shipped them to me, my mouth dropped when I saw how she packaged them. Completely unexpected but I love the little snowy scene and the box makes a great way to store them and keep them safe when they’re not on display. Perfect for gifting. I can hardly part with them they are so cute. But I will for you guys.

Here’s something I want to share with some of my international friends before the holidays end. There are actually four versions of the book. I don’t think I have mentioned that on the blog before.

Cake Pop Holidays Books

Cake Pops Holidays in the US and Canada. Cake Pops Christmas in the UK. Cake Pops Jul in Norway and I heart Cake Pops in The Netherlands. They are all the same content just different covers and translated in Norwegian and Dutch.

I totally heart that “I heart cakepops” cover by the way.

Here are some links if you’d like to get your hands on a copy or need a sweet last minute stocking stuffer for the baker/cute lover/decorator in your life.

In the U.S.

Barnes and Noble

Netherlands: (fyi-the cover image is incorrect on this link)


Final Book Signings 

Just a reminder – The NEW YORK book signing that was cancelled in November in Garden City due to Sandy is rescheduled for this Thursday at 12:00 pm at the Williams-Sonoma in Huntington Station.

And on Friday – BOSTON will be the very last book signing stop this year. I’ll be at the Burlington Barnes & Noble at 7 pm. I’ve never been to Boston and can’t wait.

Here are the details for the last two signings. Hope you can make it.

New York & Boston Book Signings

Unfortunately, the Paramus, NJ signing at Chef Central that was cancelled due to Superstorm Sandy wasn’t able to be rescheduled before the holidays. I’m so sorry for those of you who  had wanted to attend.


And lastly…  

finally if you’ve even read this far, here are some photos from the first events. I’m still working on uploading Houston and Dallas.

Feel free to grab a photo from the flickr links if you attended one of the signings. Thank you so much for coming out. I have loved meeting you all and cherish seeing your smiling faces. Yay for cake pops.
