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.

  4. Hello! I love all your amazing ideas of calepops! I’m in love of the christmas theme so I love them! I really want your book!

  5. You post so many amazing ones! But probably the jack-o-lantern, because I can actually come fairly close to making that one : )

  6. Happy anniversary! I came across your blog when you made the edible valentines chocolate box! I love that design and have done similar designs over the years as gifts all based on your original! Thanks for 10 fun years! 

  7. You always make such cute things, but I think the Grumpy Cat pops are my favourite design! Congratulations on your published authour anniversary!

  8. My favourite cake pop memory is the first time I made cake pops myself. The excitement waiting for them to be finished and actually eating them afterwards was heavenly. I especially loved seeing the reactions from those eating them!

  9. I love this book! I’ve had it for as long as it’s been out and have looked through it SO many times. I haven’t made as many as I’ve wanted to, but I had fun with the Easter basket ones with my mom and sisters one year. :) My kids and I will have to get this book back out and make something challenging! I’d love to win this set.

  10. My favorite memory was finding you insta and looking at all the cool things you have made. I started making cake pops to earn a little more money for my mom and family to help pay bills. I wish to get better using your books and tips, I hope I win.

  11. Book cover cake pop. Everything you make is great.

  12. Congratulations on 10 years of success! Many fond memories of making cake pops for family and friends. Thanks for creating something positive and memorable.

  13. My favorite memory was when I was lucky enough to meet you in Salt Lake City at Williams Sonoma years ago. You commented on my cupcake necklace and you were so lovely! Congratulations on all of your success! 

  14. My favourite cake pop design, however amazing and detailed they all are, will always be the cupcake cake pops. They were the reason I started following you back in probably 2008 or 2009. I made a Fourth of July version and they were a hit! 

  15. Happy Anniversary! ? My favorite memory of the book is looking through it with my kids! I’d rather look at the book than actually make the pops, because I’m a lazy baker. ?

  16. I have loved following you for the last decade plus! I just looked and the oldest email I have saved is from September 2010 “Easy apple cake.” I know it was sometime before that in which I had learned what a cake pop was, with the original chocolate with your signature pink colored coating. Over the years I have made numerous batches of them (red velvet flavor is the family favorite) with some successes and many “redos” that ultimately ended up just being the ball instead of the cute characters you create. Lol I think my favorite ones will have to be the cupcake-shaped. I’m a big fan of baking cupcakes and cakes so maybe this is why I love them so much. It’s been a while since I’ve made them…I’m going to have to do it again soon. 
    Congratulations on 10 years of the book! I remember when it first came out! Thanks for your continued inspirations!!

  17. Frogs! I made them for a frog themed shower and everyone loved them. super cute!

  18. Puppy cake pops! It took me almost a decade and I finally have my own little loaf ?

  19. My favorite is the cupcake cakepop, it was shared by Pioneer Woman and that’s how I found your site!

  20. My favorite would definitely be a Christmas tree cake pop, After many tries and attempts of it I finally got it! My 2 year old decided I shouldn’t have a picture of my first cake pop that wasn’t “round” so she ate it! 

  21. I make the pumpkins every halloween. I also make your oreo kisses every valentines day. I know they are not cake pops but a family favorite!

  22. I love ALL the cake pops but my favorites are still the spring chickens :)
    Maybe someday I will attempt to make them!

  23. Thanks for doing this giveaway and for so many years of inspiration!  Favorites are the polar bears!

  24. Wow how is it already 10 years? Congrats and thanks for doing this giveaway!  Love all the designs especially the Hello Kitty design!

  25. Your cakepops are ART! My hand is not steady enough – and neither is my patience!!! But that doesn’t mean I don’t love looking at the pictures!!

  26. Amazing cake pop book creations! They are WAY too adorable to eat … well they Do look yummy, though! The very first cake pops I made were Halloween themed (pumpkins, vampires, Frankensteins and mummies) for a kids’ Halloween party. They were a labor of love that took a long time for this newbie, but it felt amazing to have the little costumed kids to ooh and awww over their adorableness, then promptly gobble them up and say how good they were. Thank you for the inspiration and creative ideas!

  27. Happy book anniversary! I loved the Minion cake pops, but these mini books are amazing! My new favorite. 

  28. I, remember trying to make these 10 years ago,when I first saw them. First few attempts, made wonky lumpy pops. I, have them down to a science now, finally.
    Great products too!

  29. When I first stumbled upon “Bakerella” I fell in love with these cake pops that looked like miniature cupcakes with a cherry on top that was a little piece of round red candy. I ended up trying them out and made them for a coworkers party and got so many compliments!! I have been an avid follower for many years and unfortunately missed the chance to meet you at Short Hills mall in NJ a few years back. Hoping to get another chance! Thanks for helping me get my creative juices going and inspiring me to keep baking!

  33. Your designs are so creative and treats look perfect and sweet! The Cupcakes Pops are my favorite.

  36. I bought your first Cake pops book and since then I was in love with cake pops! I made the pirate cake pops for my son’s birthday when he was 6 for school and he had a pirate party! And now he’s 14 and still loved the pirate cake pops I made for him! You’re my inspiration for creativity with cake pops! Thank you so much for being you!!!

  37. Thank you for always sharing the names and brands of the products you use. I know they will work and it saves me from wasting money on other stuff. My favorite cake pops are the baby faces with the bibs. I made them for my sister’s gender reveal and they were a HUGE hit!

  39. I’ve been following your journey for years. Everything you do amazes me! You are so talented. The attention to detail is incredible. I’ve loved everything but I gotta say, I have a soft spot for the original cupcake cake pop. It blew my mind! Congrats on a decade of the book!

  40. this was the first BAKERY book that I had purchased, before that i had never bought a book for sweets or pastries in my life, that same week was my aunts baby shower and i had showed her the book like thousands of times so she had the idead that i knew how to make the things that where in there and she told everyone that were attending her babyshower that i would be making some cakepops, aka THE BABY FACES ?, so before i could say NO i was already compromised so I grabbed your book without having ever baked anything before, read the vanilla cake recipe, attempted to make it, didn”t go so great so I ended up buying some Pillsbury cake mix, followed the instructions and made my firts cake pops, No I didn’t do the baby face ones, I made the simple ones and some cake balls, vanilla flavored, with white coatinf and some blue sprinkles, gave them to my aunt and when i got to her baby shower I was actually surprised to see they were ALL GONE people actually ate them ALL and liked them, i had a couple asking ME to do some for them, i had a bussiness for a while but know I make them only for my sons, but your book actually gave me my firts clients so THANKS ?

I made them for my daughter’s soccer team, and after that, there was no looking back…Thousands of cakepops & cakeballs later, I have gotten so much better & ended up being called upon for school events, church luncheons & tons of parties & sports celebrations.

I had never seen a cakepop and thought they looked not only gorgeous but soo gravity defying :D I had trouble making my own and keeping them on a stick so I was just so envious and still am of your talent.  Even though my baking has calmed down I still love looking at your baked good. I could stare for hours! Congratulations Bakerella! ? I also always thought Bakerella was such a cute name!

The book would be missing from my shelf and I would later find it in her room. We made the clown pops for her second birthday which was circus themed! We still have our original book. It’s still in her room and she’s 11 now. Thank you for all the fun you’ve provided us over the years!

  132. When cake pops first came out, they were a savior. I would bend at show with tons of kids and made enough to pay rent. Fabulous

  133. Hey Bakerella,

    I have been with you since the beginning. You are a great inspiration! I have been making cake pops for all occasions and they are always a big hit. Now I am making them with my four year old grandson and he is having a blast. The pops I make with him aren’t exactly perfect, but no one seems to care and they are eaten anyway! There are too many cute ones to pick a favorite.

  134. My favorite memory is meeting you at a book signing my daughter and her not 1yo daughter attended with me. Now that granddaughter is 10 and making her own cake pops with the signed book!

  135. Hello I just wanted to say I love love love all of your cake pop themes. This post was a great help to me also. My favorite cake pops are the reindeer cake pop and the snowy cones. Made for holidays and my family loved them.

  136. I made your cake pops for my daughter to take to preschool when she was 4. She was a cupcake fairy, so they were perfect. She’s now a Freshman in High School!  Yikes!  You are such a talented artist!  Congratulations on all your success!

  137. My favorite cake pop will always be the cupcake pops when I saw you appeared on Martha Stewart morning show.  Love to see that you continued to grow and create a variety of cake pop shapes .  

  138. Love the cake pops book. I would never have thought  to make that!

  139. Anything Christmas, but the Christmas trees have always been my fav! You truly inspired me to make these treats and while it’s been a long time since I’ve made them, I still hold them dear to my heart! You’re amazing!

  140. Love following all the creativity and talent!!

    The multi colored balloons in various shapes appealed to me, because they were so adorable *and* unique, yet (fairly, lol) simple enough for me to attempt on my own…

    Thanks for all the wonderful content!

  141. I love your books. I made the Sesame Street pops for my Grandkids and they loved them.

  142. I remember spotting your Minions cake pops on Pinterest, then being totally amazed as I spent hours looking at all of your other designs. You are amazing!

  143. Gotta love the classic cupcake cake pop!

  144. I hope I’m the lucky winner!!!!! Congrats on all your success! 

  145. My favorites are the Halloween Cake Pops! They were so much fun and everyone loved them.

  146. Hii, I’m lily! Making/baking cakepops is a very fun hobby of mine. I made my first batch of cakepops when I was 13. And now 6 years later I was able to start a little in home baking business. For the past 2 years I’ve been selling cakepops and other sweet sweets from home. When I first started making cakepops I did not have the opportunity to have such a fun and amazing book to learn cool tricks and tips, but after making cakepops over and over again, I was able to learn off my mistakes and my cakepops started turning out amazing! With this book and other fun cakepop tools, I’ll be able to continue making more fun and exciting cakepops and learn some more tricks and tips on the way. 
    My favorite cakepops to make are geode cakepops. Even though it May take 5-10 minutes to design just one pop, the end result is so beautiful and worth the effort! 

  147. I love unicorn cake pops. Thank you for this very generous giveaway.

  148. My faves are the Halloween ones–we’re a Halloween kind of family! Love your site, and congrats on all you’ve built.

  149. I have had so much fun using the book to make cake pops for my grandkids and friends over the years. They are so much fun to make.

  150. How could I ever pick a single favorite, there are so many designs that make my heart happy. I will share my first memory about cake pops though, it was the Spring Chicks design. I was living in Taiwan back then and a friend shared your blog with me. The first time I went to your site, it was the Spring Chicks post at the top and I instantly fell in love. I’ve been reading your blog ever since. I bought your first book as a Christmas gift to my 4 kiddos at the time. I now have 7 kiddos and we all think cake pops are the cutest!

  151. I remember bakerellas first years. My than boss somehow found you online and showed me your work. We were so obsessed. Sadly she has since passed but seeing this reminds me of our time together checking out all the awesome ideas and work. 

  152. I love the cupcake cake pops. I actually made them for my daughters 1st birthday many years ago. I think all of your cake pops are absolutely adorable and it just makes me so happy to look at all your beautiful creations!! 

  153. the shih tsu cake pops, so cute!

  154. My favorite ones are the sugar skull cake pops.

  155. Thank you for your book! You have always been my baking inspiration. I bought your book way before I became a mother and couldn’t wait until I had kids to start making cake pops with them. Now my kids and I share this favorite hobby together and the best part is being able to spread the joy by making them for our friends, family, neighbors and community. 

  156. My favorite memory is the thrill of discovering your site!

  171. My favorite memory is learning how to make your cake pops and sharing with my friends. Even my fails were delicious.

  172. Happy 10 year book anniversary! My favorite original design is the cupcake pops. I’ve made those several times for friends (and my own pregnancy announcement at work!). 

  173. Bravo! I have followed you since 2008 & remember really being blown away by those Halloween pop designs (my fave holiday)! I am not much of a baker, but now that’s I have 2 little girls who love celebrations and baking maybe we’ll give that recipe a go! Congrats again on the book anni!

  174. Happy book anniversary! I’ve been following your blog forever! I remember freaking a little when I met you at a food blog conference at Disney World years ago. I’ve always admired your creativity!

  175. All of your pops are sooo cute and make me smile. My favorite part is focusing in on the details to see how they are made. I’m a huge Hello Kitty fan, so I would have to say that my favorite cake pops that you have made are the hello kitty ones. The easter chicks would have to be a close second Mmmmmmm

  176. Discovering your cake pops got me through the roughest few years of my life. Your pops always brewing me so much joy! 

  177. My fav design is still the beach bears with floaters!  So adorable and fun!  Oddly, I’ve never made them but still on my list! 

  178. Ten years!  Wow!  Bought your cake pop book for my daughter and we’ve been making them since.   Valentines Cupid’s arrows are probably my favorite. Cake pop at both ends!  

  179. I love the little monsters! Especially the mummy!

  180. I have been in love with all of your creations from Day 1! I’m blown away by everything you create and I have your 1st book.  My fave memory is you sharing your journey with your kidney and the cute cake pops that you created. What a blessing!

  181. I love cake pops! I’ve been making them for my boys’ birthdays the past couple of years. Now my extended family is requesting them at our get-togethers. One of my favorites is the cupcake shaped pops you did. Super cute.

  182. When I first started baking, it was the first book I wanted and one day my cousin gifted it to me and I still use it constantly. I love the website and you’ve helped me many times. Thanks

  183. My favourite pop has to be grumpy cat. I can’t believe I could actually pick a favourite, I have so many.

    I’ve followed you since the beginning, and I’m just amazed at your creativity with the cake pops. I am still no where near even being able to do much more than aa basic one. But I sure do have a lot of fun trying.

  184. I remember when “cake pops” wasn’t part of our vocabulary! I love your site and all your stories. Thank you for the give away! 

  185. Happy Anniversary!  Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 10 years. The cupcake cake pops were always my favorite!  So much fun to make and eat. 

  186. My favorite memory/design would have to be my unicorn cake pops. When I was asked to make them for a little girl’s birthday party I was extremely nervous as it was my first time and my business was fairly new. But the lady had faith in me and I’m pleased to say they turned out perfect!

  187. My heart still smiles remembering the day your book arrived in the mail.  I had wanted it so bad…and my Sister Kathy surprised me with it.  My Daughter is now our cake pop Queen….still using your book as inspiration.  

  188. I love your cake pops! You make it look so easy. Cake pops are a challenge for me. Congratulations on 10 years!

  189. I always open your e-mail with expectation!!! Every design are wonderful! I’ll try the popcorn cubes for my son’s next birthday ?(. ? ? ?.)?
    Congrats for this 10 years ????????

  190. I remember when you 1st came on the scene, ok I don’t officially know the date and you may have been around long before 2009, but I know my oldest was starting preschool and I still had time to be creative! I saw your apple cake pops online and fell in in love with the ease, fun and multitudes it made for his school class. I will always remember those as my 1st cake pop creations, they were adored by everyone and inspired me to make others over the years!

  191. When I first found out about cake pops, it was when I found the cake pop kit you created online. It was during a tough time for me when my father passed away and I had been laid off from work. I was seriously lost and going through a lot trying to overcome my declining mental health. Coming  across this kit honestly helped me so much. It kept my mind busy from all the hardships I was going through at the time. I practiced with simple white candy coat cake pops with sprinkles and eventually moved onto harder ones with special shapes and designs. I gained some popularity with making cake pops amongst my friends and family to the point that they were constantly being requested for special events like baby showers and birthday parties. Everyone loved the look and taste of my cake pops and that alone shined some much needed  positivity back into my life. Cake pops have become more than just a treat I make for parties. It’s something I do when times are tough. It’s something I do with friends for fun. It’s what I do to show my love for other people. Regardless of the outcome for this contest I just want to say thank you for your book and all the creations you have shared. 

  192. Baby Yoda, hands down!

  193. Christmas cakepops are my favorites!!!
    Cant wait to the season and start making them

  194. I’m blown away by these book cover pops! You are an incredible artist! Your snowman with a head & body are one of my most faves!! They are too cute. 

  195. I love all the fall/Halloween themed cake pops!

  196. Love all your posts and all of your designs but I especially love the holiday themed cake pops. The Christmas ones (snowmen and Christmas trees!) and every Halloween one, especially the vampires! You’re so talented!

  197. I still have a signed copy of your first book from your appearance at Williams-Sonoma in Oak Brook, Illinois.

  198. I bought your book 10 years ago and have been making cake pops for my kids ever since, they love them!

  199. I always remember your kidney cake pop. It’s just adorable and reminds me of your story.

  200. I love all the holiday cake pops especially the spring ones! The bunnies, the chicks… so much cuteness!
