Great news and random other stuff

Best news first. I’ve been approved to receive another kidney transplant and my mom has been approved to be the donor. The testing is complete. The doctors visited. The Ts crossed. Yay! Yay! Yay! So this week, we should find out more information about scheduling the surgery.

I’ve actually been doing pretty good lately. I don’t feel bad. I don’t feel sick. Just tired. The dialysis is working really well and keeping me going. Thank goodness for dialysis. Thank goodness for my mom. Once we have a date scheduled, I’m sure we will both be getting a lot more nervous, but until then we are so happy that things are moving forward. Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers.

…and now some other stuff…


Blogher Food. Two weekends ago Blogher Food was in Atlanta and that meant several blogging friends were in town, too. I didn’t attend the conference this year, but I did meet up with some of them for lunch. This was one of the few fun things I’ve done lately. Thank you guys for such a great time!

Cupcake Lovers. If you get a chance, check out the Betty Crocker Big Book of Cupcakes. Tons of recipes inside including this one from me.


iPad Owners. Cake Pops is now available in the iBook store. Being the Apple lover that I am and seeing this featurette made me smile BIG! You can download the iBook app for your iPad to see the sample pages if you want a peek. If you prefer your books in digital formats, you’ll like this version. It was created specifically for the iPad to stay true to the design of the book.


Brazilian Cake Poppers. A few weeks ago I showed you the Dutch version of the book. Well, now Brazil has its own version too. Yay!

Lastly, I was going to post some cupcakes I baked yesterday, unfortunately I didn’t like them enough to write about them. But on a positive note, I did bake.

    What would we do without our wonderful mothers? =)

  19. Great to hear such great news, best of luck to you!!!

    ***Everyone who’s looking for the Brazilian edition: I found out that the book will be published soon by Editora Manole:

    I called them and they informed me that the book is scheduled to be launched in Brazil still in June! \o/ \o/

  20. I confess I’ve not visited for a while and was saddened to hear of your news. I hope all goes well from here on in.
    I’ve always marvelled at your lovely goods, but I rarely bake so have never actually tried any of your recipes. I’mgoing to finally bite the bullet and try your cake balls. Wish me luck!

  21. great news! how special will that be and I’ll say a little prayer for you and your surgery. wishing you all a speedy recovery. and hopefully you’ll be back to regular baking in no time:) take care,


  22. My heart was so happy when I read that you have been approved to receive another kidney transplant and your mom has been approved to be the donor.
    Good luck with everything and may you both be strong and healthy

  23. And a french version ? :( Because I speak English just a little

  24. Fantastic news! And sweet ones too…
    First, you are getting better!! Moms are always the solution…
    Then, I will be able to have your book in Portuguese!
    Are you coming over to sign them?
    Can’t wait!

  25. Hurray!!!!!! So excited for the good news….will be praying for your surgery and complete recovery for you and your mom.

  26. So glad your mother is able to donate (I donated my kidney to my daughter). You will feel so much better!. I’m so glad you bring awareness about organ donation to your website. People really do care:) Wishing you the best!!

  27. yay so glad to hear that you will be getting a transplant! hope all goes well for you! and congratulations on the brazilian version of your book!


  28. I’m so glad to hear your news. I’ve been a fan for a long time and I’m glad you still exude warmth and cheer despite not feeling your best. My aunt had a kidney transplant twice. The first was donated by my dad, but 15 yrs after that, she had to get another one. It hasn’t been the easiest journey, but she’s doing well and I know it’ll be the same for you. xoxo.

  29. Congratulations on the great news , Prayers and good thoughts on your way to you and your mom :)

  30. I miss you :(

  31. oh my, this IS wonderful news and that photo of friends is fantastic.

    Your mother is a wonderful woman who must love you so much. I will send good thoughts and prayers your way often.

  32. I’m so happy for you!!! I’ve been a fan for a long time. I’ve made your cupcake pops years ago, for school parties and for birthday treat bags (huge hit). I only recently learned you were a transplant recipient. It’s an issue near and dear to me as my son had a heart transplant as an infant. One more reason for me to love you more!!


  33. What wonderful news Angie!

    You and Momarella deserve the very best. Wishing you both smooth sailing through the surgery and related procedures.

    I know that transplant surgeries are horribly expensive. We should be doing a world-wide bake sale to help defray expenses!

  34. Get well soon!, best wishes for you from a new peruvian fan of yours!!!… Blessings!

  35. Moms will always mother no matter how grown you get. I’m so happy that things are looking brighter. Thanks for all the yummy goodness you share and inspire. <3

  36. Congratulations :) I am so glad you are feeling better :D The cupcake recipe hella cool!

  37. OMG…. I can not be more happier for you and your lovely mom! Congrats to the both of you… hope all goes well and speedy recovery for the both of you.

  38. Yay that’s great news!! Thinking of you!

  39. So happy to hear your wonderful news! God bless all the dear moms, huh?

  40. I am a total Bakerella Blog Stalker. I love your blog tons. I know this seems wired but I feel like I know you! I pray for you often and think about you all the time.

  45. Great news. How long will you be offline for? We, your fans, worry when we don’t hear from you. I hope it all goes smoothly and you are up and around again soon. With peace from Boston, MA.

  46. The Strawberry Colada (or Miami Vice as I like to think of them) cucpcakes are DELICIOUS!! They are my most favorite cupcakes I have ever had! When I saw that recipe in the book I knew I had to have it, and after making them, I knew I made the right decision buying the book! The book is worth it for that recipe alone!

    Also glad to hear that you’re going to get a new kidney! I went through my own illness last year and I know it’s not easy.

  47. FANTASTIC news!!!

  48. Thanks for sharing such great news!! all the best

    Congratulations on getting approval for the 2nd transplant. My father went through many years of dialysis before he finally got his transplant. I can remember how relieved and happy we all were, and he felt great to have been “repaired.” I wish you much luck and many prayers and hugs as it all transpires. Yay!

  63. That is such great news! God is truly blessing you and your mom. I will continue to pray for your continued success down this scary route. So Happy for You!!!!!

  75. Glad to hear about the transplant, I am a Kidney transplant coordinator in SoCal and every day I work to get people with kidney failure listed. But every time I hear someone getting transplanted I still get so excited. The motto ‘Donate Life’ is so true. “Big Hugs” to your mom! I always think of you and say a quick prayer when I make cake balls and cake pops. (which lately has been a lot!)

    :) Liz

  76. I know all your fans are excited about your great news! And don’t worry about the new stuff because you have left us tons of yummy ideas. I discovered your website about a yr ago and my co-workers have never been so happy.

  155. Hi Angie, I have commented earlier (192) that I wanted to post on my blog about your book version in portuguese. Wanted you to have a look and see if it is all right with you! Google translator is terrible and if you would like I could e mail the translation for your appreciation. Have a look and let me know if it is OK. Thanks

  156. I am so grateful your mom is a match and the surgery will be scheduled soon. I adore you, you are truly a beautiful person inside and out.

  157. That is great news!!!!! Wishing you all the best and many prayers for you and your mom. Will kidney shaped cake pops be on your list post-surgery? ; )

  158. So very glad to hear your news! Hope all goes well from now on for you and your mum – she’s awesome for stepping up in this way; and congrats on the multiple languages of the book!

  159. It sounds like things are finally looking up! I’m happy to hear your mom is your match and you’ll be able to go ahead with the surgery. I wish you both the best.
    It also sounds like you’re doing some fun things, and baking again is great news. You’re definitely missed around here.

  160. Yay! I’m so glad things are now actively moving in a positive direction for you, healthwise! And congrats on getting one of your recipes published in a Betty Crocker cookbook! Not to mention all that other cool stuff in production! That’s rad! ;D

  161. Great news! Will pray all goes smoothly & that you both have peace.

  162. That is the best news ever about your mom and your kidney transplant! Yay!!! You both will be kept in our prayers. Best wishes.
