Cake Pops Book Anniversary

Cake Pops by Bakerella

Hi friends! My Cake Pops Book turns 10 today and to celebrate, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate treat to make than pops that look like the book cover.

I can’t believe it’s been more than a decade of sharing these tiny treats with you guys and now officially ten years since the book was released. When I started making pops and giving instructions on the blog, I never could have predicted the impact they would have around the world. It’s been so fun seeing your creative treats, meeting you guys on book signings, and sharing so many smiles with you over the past years. Thank you for making this adventure so sweet!

Yay, I’m having a fun Cake Pops Collection Giveaway!!!

You could win a copy of all three of my books, my cake pops toy, kits and cards, too. Basically, everything in the photo below except for the candy jars. ;  ) See how to enter at the end of the post.

Cake Pops Collection


Now, I realize it’s unlikely that you will want to make these book cover cake pops, but I want to show you how to, just in case there’s a part of the process that gives you an idea on your next pop project.


Follow my basic cake pops recipe to roll into balls and shape and decorate with the instructions below.

I rolled these balls a bit bigger at about 2 inches to accommodate the size I needed for the book cover.

Shaping Cake Pops

To shape, I used a rectangular cutter to help with straight edges. Flatten the cake pop mixture and then cut out or cut off the sides with the straight edges. Chill until firm, but not frozen.

I used cookie sticks instead of lollipop sticks to help support the extra weight since these were larger than usual.

Dip the end of a cookie stick into melted and fluid vanilla coating and then carefully insert into the bottom of a chilled, shaped rectangle. Press your fingers on the sides as you insert to keep the mixture from breaking apart since they aren’t as thick as say a rolled ball, the mixture may try to separate. If it does, you can always apply a bit of melted candy coating to any cracks to kind of glue or hold it together.

Now, let’s see how those white rectangles turn into these? It’s time consuming for sure, but worth it for some 10-year celebration pops.

Painting on Cake Pops

First, I used a toothpick to etch guide lines into the candy coating for the six squares. Then I used a small brush to paint on the surface with edible Poppy Paint (Just one of the cool cake pop products that came about over the years from readers like you).

Writing on Cake Pops

Next, I had to write out the title of the book. Gotta say, this was probably the hardest part. And as I was doing it I was super thankful that the cover used block letters instead of calligraphy. That would have been so much harder.

I used the blue Americolor Gourmet Writing Pens to carefully mimic the type as much as possible. Then I used the edge of my rectangular cutter to make two straight blue lines, overlapping the edges of the color blocks.

Cake Pops Sketch

Here’s a drawing I did to simplify the cover as much as possible. I ditched including my name because I would have totally screwed that up at such a small scale.

Okay, lightbulb moment! I was going to draw lollipop sticks on the surface with vanilla candy coating, but how perfect are white jimmies. I mean, it’s crazy all the ways sprinkles can be used to decorate, but this may be one of my favorites. Perfect lollipop sticks and the exact proportion I needed for these pops.

To recreate the six designs on the cover, I used a toothpick to dot small amounts of melted candy coating on top and coerced it into each shape I needed. I placed a small amount of coating first, attached the jimmies and then placed more coating on top to secure the jimmies in place.

Tiny Cake Pops

I used tiny, tiny, tiny non-pareils for the cupcake pop sprinkles and black jimmies for the snowman’s hat.

Tiny Cake Pops

And for the popcorn, I used tiny white sugar pearls and a red edible ink writing pen. All of the other details were just little dots of colored candy coating.

A book about cake pops turned into cake pops, with tiny cake pops on the cover. So meta.

  2. My favorite design is your original cupcake pop that was featured on Martha Stewart! Congrats on 10 exciting years! 

  3. I was enchanted by your book and can’t believe it was 10 years ago that I bought it! Actually just used it again last week for a young friend at work! 

  4. I fell in love in Santas cake pops

  5. I had just gotten a new job and the Bakerella herself was coming to a local Williams-Sonoma for a book signing. I waited in line for 20 minutes and ended up having to ditch to go back to work. I was able to leave my book with the staff who kindly agreed to have it signed :) Your cake pops inspire me! My favorite are the original simply decorated with sprinkles – so easy and versatile. xo!

  6. I loved the Halloween cake pops – I’m a sucker for fun Halloween treats!

  8. Most amazing cake pop designs that I’ve ever seen. The attention to detail and creativity is unparalleled. I’ve shared your website with so many people and they all stunned as well. Too hard to choose which I like the best but your Christmas designs especially the Reindeer are on the top of my list. True artistry. Keep up the awesome work!

  9. I think I love the book replica cake pops the best! I have been following you for a while now, before any books were published!

    Wishing you many years and milestones to come!

  11. Your book started me on my cakepop journey!! I got it right after you released it and now own my own biz! I am soooo thankful for your insight and creations! My favorite Cakepops are probably the owl ones I made for my first event nearly 9 years ago from this very book. Thanks Angie!

  12. Just wanted you to know that my now six year old grandson LOVED this book. His favorite book by far when he was just learning to talk. We have the cutest video of him pointing to pictures and saying, “Oooooh dat one’s so cute!”

    I had big plans but I actually only made one of the cake pops in the book. This book will remain a treasured part of his library and will probably never return to my cookbook shelf!

    You are so very talented!

  18. Wow, 10 years!?! It feels like maaaybe a year ago when my field hockey teammates and I picked up your book to make some Cake pops for a bake sale for our team. We made all sorts of pops inspired by your book. I saw inspired because although we followed all the directions, we were athletes not artists and they looked nothing like the photos in the book haha. Still tasted amazing though!! Congratulations on 10 years!!

  19. I love the Polar Bear cake pops. My grandkids had fun making them although they didn’t look exactly like yours

  65. I think my favorite cake pop was the first time I ever saw one I thought genius and I could not wait to try it and it just keeps getting better and better and better your designs are creative and adorable and I want to try everyone of them a close second would be hello kitty but really  I love them all!

  68. Your Cake pops are so amazing! I discovered making cake pops when some of my past foster kids moved in. One of the best ways to connect with these kids after everything they’ve been through us buy food. Learning to make cake pops is so fun for them and rewarding and helping to build their self-esteem. I wish I would’ve taken pictures of the times that I have made them with these kiddos but look forward to making more with the next kids who move in.

  69. My favorite cake pops memory was meeting you at your book signing in LA! You liked my cupcake shirt and I had such a moment haha

It was a complete surprise and she absolutely loved them. She still talks about it today. She said it made her birthday party the “it” party. Lol.   They are so cute when they are tiny and simple. Lol.

My absolute favorite design is the koala one!  It is actually the reason why I even own a cake pop company.  My MIL purchased your book for me soon after you published it only so I could make the koala pop, and now Daisy Cakes has turned into a business that pumps out 50K+ pops a year!  Can’t say thank you enough,  Angie!

  124. I love the christmas wreath , all of them ate beautiful ? i really need this in my live.

  125. I can’t believe it’s already been 10 years since this book came out!! But then again, I can… I found your blog on Pinterest and fell in love with cake pops immediately… they are just so, so cute.

    The problem was that at the time, I lived in Germany and the trend would take another few years to arrive there. Many supplies were hard/impossible to find: Lollipop sticks, bright food colors, frosting in a can, candy melts, fun sprinkles… I made it work with local ingredients (developing my own recipes) and also ordered some stuff from overseas, haha. My friend’s mind were simply BLOWN and the pops were always a huge hit.

    The favorite designs by far were owls (chocolate Nutella flavor!) and sheep (Red Velvet with coconut “wool”). Thanks for inventing this fun, new way of baking <3!

  126. The little ghosts with pumpkin pails are the cutest and my favourite cake pops, Halloween always wins my heart! ???

  127. I liked the Minions! ?

  128. Oh my! Happy Anniversary!
    So many cake pops memories! And so much cake pop inspo! I remember getting the book when it first came out and had so many tries to get perfect cake pop covering consistency! Can’t believe that was ten years ago!

  129. The Lorax is my favorite!!

  130. Hi bakerella!
    I will never ever forget meeting you at your book signing event in PA for the release of your holiday book. It was for my 14th birthday, I had my copy of your first book ready in hand to sign and got your holiday edition at the store.

    Little did I know my mom contacted you ahead of time telling you how much I adored you, and that it was my birthday. When I met you and your mother, you said oh! I have something for you! You reached into your purse and handed me a Bakerella T Shirt. I was crying. You were crying. Our moms were crying.

    Both you and your mom are such special people. Bakerella, you will always hold a special place in my heart. I’ve followed your blog since I was a little girl, and still do. You are truly an inspiration.

    Thank you for being you and sharing your journey with the world. And with a young, aspiring baker like myself. You are one of a kind. Congratulations Bakerella ?

  131. I remember meeting you at a book signing (at William Sonoma) maybe 10 years ago!! That was such a highlight for me!! 

  132. The Sugar Skull cake pops are my favorite! So beautiful and intricate!

  133. I love the owls!!

  134. It’s impossible to just pick one cake pop because you make the cutest ones around!  I guess my current favorite pops are the Baby Yoda pops. You were one of the first bloggers I started following and I have been following you for over a decade now! I’m glad you are doing well and still sharing what you make with us. ??

  135. My daughter is 10 and she loves baking and making cake pops! Awesome giveaway!

  137. Ohhh the red velvet cake pops! Divine!

  138. Love cake pops but never successfully mastered them ? Congratulations on 10 yrs ?
    Christmas balls in white chocolate drizzled  with gold and glitter are a favorite. They are all festive and are a great addition to a treat table. 

  139. LOVE your Halloween cake pops! ?

  140. This is amazing! I just purchased your book and am waiting for my candy melts to arrive before I try making cake pops for the FIRST time. I can’t wait!!! I love the beach ball design you recently shared and although summer is coming to an end, those little treats will always bring a smile to my face :) Hopefully I can make them look as good as yours though!

  141. I love the stay safe and soapy pop! I thought it was sooo cute and a nice way to bring some smiles during the pandemic!

  142. I don’t know if I could pick a favorite design! I always love seeing how you’ll recreate things as cake pops! (But the cupcakes are still one of the best ones!)

  143. My favorite creation was one of your first simple red velvet cake pops!!!! I also love the square ones usually baby blocks because it’s always tough to work with square shapes!

  144. Love the Halloween cake pops !

  145. Congratulations! I remember using ideas from your website and cookbook when I first starting making cake pops 10 years ago. I was living in a tiny apartment with an even tinier kitchen, but it was so much fun!

  146. Love them all! But a simple chick stole My heart!!!

  147. I love all the christmas ones

  148. I love them all! 

  149. My friend gifted me this book a few years ago. I  was making cake pops for my baby showers,  kids birthdays and just for fun for friends and she thought that I would be inspired by your creations. She was right – you inspired me to be more creative and to step out of the box.  I love this book and refer to it quite often. Thank you for sharing your gift with the rest of us. Happy 10th anniversary!!! 

  150. I remember making patriotic cake pops for the 4th one year. I made red, white and blue ones, and some of them had a bright blue cake inside that looked super cool! They were very yummy and everyone loved them. They were the perfect treat for taking with us to watch fireworks! 

  151. Been a fan since 2014! Love your cake pops – my favorite is the Power Puff Girls and the super cute Vampires!

  152. Absolutely love you and your creativity! My favorite is definitely your shih tzu pops I have a little shih tzu named Punch and my god the detail in those pops is just amazing I hope to be that good some day! Practice practice practice! 

  153. So many favorites but grumpy cat and the ghost with the pumpkin candy bucket  tops the list. :-)

  154. My favorite design is anything 3D character. I’ve never done one but I admire all the work that goes into the details

  155. I started following you when you were blogging about cake pops! I have always loved and admired all of your work! 

  156. Happy Anniversary! My favorite Cake Pops memory is sitting with my grandson and looking at each design. He wanted them all for his birthday!

  157. Cake pops have been a special treat to share with the class on each of my children’s birthdays! My favorite post was the sneak peak into your pantry – seeing the before and after of your organization of all those adorable and delicious supplies!

  158. My first cake pops were apples and pumpkins. I fell in love with them and never stopped making cake pops for all occasions.

  159. Your book is what had inspired me to start cake popping!

  175. Polar bears are my favorite with owls coming in second.  My fondest memory I hope will come this year, teaching my 4-year old great niece how to make cake pops.  She loves making cookies and cupcakes…decorating needs a little work, but she loves spending time in the kitchen.

  176. Congratulations on 10 years of cake pops! I can’t believe it’s been that long, time does really fly! I love all of the posts you make and one of my favorite is your whoopie pie recipe, it’s the BEST! You need to try a whoopie pie cake pop! :)

  179. I have loved seeing all of the different cake pops! It makes me dream/wish I could make anything near the quality of yours!! I loved the little animals that you made at one time.

  180. My first book I’ve bought to learn how to make cake pops ?. I remembered making for Halloween the ghost ?, the witch, the pumpkin n the mommy with my then 3 yrs old daughter! We had so much fun making them in perfect shape ??

  181. Congratulations! My favorites are your Halloween cake pops. 

  182. I’ve known about your book and website for as long as I can remember. When I was about 8 y.o., instead of playing video games, I would spend my screen time browsing your website:) I got one of your books when I was a kid and spent HOURS looking through that thing! Huge fan!!! I’ve never gotten super complicated with cake pops, but I’ve made the basic kind a few times and it never fails to please!

  183. Thank you so much for everything you do! I love going on your site (all the time!) and just go scrolling through all the amazing creations you’ve made. Congrats on 10 years! That is AMAZING! How are we supposed to choose a favorite? I can’t! I love them all! But if I were to narrow it down I would choose, the animal cake pops. They are definitely cute! Thank you!

  184. My family really loved the robot cake pops. 

  185. My first cake pops were in the shape of a baby head ? for my sister-in-law’s baby shower. They were not perfect but I was really proud of them. Congratulations on your book anniversary!

  186. Wow! Ten years! Congratulations on reaching such an incredible milestone – and for making such an impact on creativity and sweet deliciousness all in one treat! 

    My favorite Cake Pop memory is when I first discovered your blog…I think it was probably by way of Facebook. The pop looked like a cupcake and I was fascinated! I’ve always had a thing for miniatures and this just made my sweet snacking and mini-loving heart SING! I shared the post with my family, friends and co-workers – anyone who had littles in their family. I thought everyone should get creative and make some Cake Pops! (We’re a pretty creative bunch, my family and friends. ?)

    Of course,  every new blog post with another amazing creation was a heart-party all over again. 

    Thanks for all the JOY Angie! Truly. ?? And congratulation again! ?


  187. My favorite cake pop is probably the reindeer! They were just so cute!!! It makes you think, “They’re too adorable to eat!”

  188. Are you kidding me? How can anyone pick a favorite design. They are all amazing!!

  193. I think my favourite memory is the excitement around the release of the first book, preordering and getting it in the mail!

  194. I’ve followed Bakerella for a long time. It’s been fun watching the evolution of Cake Pops from the simple tasty treat to elaborate, but still tasty designs. There are too many to list just one favorite, although I enjoyed the dachshund in sweater cookies enough to order the cookie cutter.
