It’s shipping.

The book is now shipping. I’m nervous. And excited. And nervous. I really hope you guys like it.

That is if you decide to pick one up and flip through it. Or buy it. That would be cool, too.

To help promote it, my publisher asked me to do a little video. A video with motion and sound. Scary stuff.

I think they wanted a quick author bio type thing, but they said I could do what I wanted.

So I decided to take the opportunity to make a little cake pop how-to for you guys… an overview.

Just don’t look at me. K?

This is Micah. He came out and spent the day with me while I messed up about 4,000 takes. He was cool. And patient.

IMG_2556

I think he may have even had fun.

For the record, this was much harder than I thought it would be. Looking straight into a camera when you’re the only one talking is tough stuff. This was much different than being on Martha. When I was on the show, I didn’t even see the cameras because I was so nervous and this time I was so nervous because I was staring straight into one.

I think this way is harder.

Luckily, Cupcake Julie was there to keep me focused. Actually, I was there. This is her kitchen.

Micah went home with lots of pops…

… In a pink box. So masculine.

But, I bet his wife appreciated it.

Okay… Okay. I’ve stalled long enough.

Want to watch the video?

Really?

Ok. Here it is.

Now, I’m going to hide.

Note: Hand in the air. Side smile. I told you guys.

P.S. Is it weird that I wanted to buy a copy of my own book? Probably, but I’m still super excited. It should arrive tomorrow. Yippee!

And to clarify… my publisher sent me copies. I just wanted the thrill of ordering and receiving it myself. I’m sure I’ll be hitting up the bookstores for some, too!

  26. Your video was so good! You looked adorable! I can’t wait to get my book. I have always wanted to make these cake pops, but have never made any. No excuses now for me! Love & blessings from NC!

  27. When I saw a while back that you had a book coming out, I made a mental list of all of the people that I was going to gift it to…including myself. You are SO STINKIN’ CUTE in that video! I can’t wait to get my bookssssssssssss. :-P

  28. Now YOU are the Pop Star, Bakerella! Great chick flick and I am anxiously awaiting my very own copy of the book to arrive.

    BTW – I wish my candy melts made coating as thin as yours – mine’s a lot thicker and I’d never be able to dip the pop immediately after inserting the stick – I have to wait for the stick to set first…so I hope your secret’s in the book!

    Congrats on a great video promo!

  55. Soooo not fair. I have to wait till 29th october. ( stomps feet, bottom lip quivering) at least I’ll have it in time to make Xmas Christmas pops. X x

  56. hey, i watched the video and i think u did great!! no need to hide. i’m gonna buy your book as soon as it reach Indonesia, Asia. keep rocking! ur blog is officially my favorite blog ever!

  57. I bought it as a birthday gift for my sister, and I’m anxiously awaiting its arrival :) We both love your site and cake pops, so it’s really the perfect gift! (I have the funny feeling she got it for me for Christmas, too…)

  58. Well, I think I don’t need to take a look at my christal ball to be able to see that you are going to be stiff all over soon. Well at least the arms. And face. The book is going to be such a hit and you will have to stand for so much photos… You have to stard training right now or smiling will get hard. ;-)

    My best wishes from Spain. I’m sure the book will be a SUPER HIT. And you will be great in photos (arm up or not). Hey, I’m thinking… Maybe you are creating a new way of posing, in saome weeks this could be trendy. ;-)

    I hope I didn’t write anything wrong, my english is not good enough for this. Just in case, I write it also in spanish, just in case someone can translate it to you.

    Querida Bakerella. Creo que no necesito sacar mi bola de cristal para poder decirte que pronto vas a tener unas agujetas tremendas. Por lo menos en los brazos. Y tal vez en la cara. El libro va a ser un éxito tan tremendo y te van a hacer tantas fotos… que vas a tener que empezar a entrenar ya o te cabará resultado doloroso sonreír por las agujetas. ;-)

    Mis mejores deseos desde España. Estoy segura de que el libro va a ser un exitazo y que saldrás estupenda en todas las fotos (da igual que salgas con el brazo en alto).

  59. I think you’ve done very well on video, you look like someone I want to be friends with! I’ve made my first cakepops this weekend. They tasted great although I couldn’t find candy melts and frosting here in Holland, but I used cream instead and chocolate with orange pieces in it. So yummy!
    I hope the book will be translated in dutch soon! I want to have one!

  60. thanks for the video :) now i had a real close look at the woman behind bakerella…my most favorite sweet site :) i love your cake pops :) xoxo

  61. I pre-ordered mines back in June. I can’t wait! Congrats to you bakerella, what an awesome accomplishment!

  62. You make it look so easy! Well done! Such an awesome idea :)

  63. oh, i SO hope this shipps to norway! Im like, your BIGGEST fan!! <3 cant wait to read this beauty! :D

  64. Dear Bakerella,
    Congratulations on your book! I was in Atlanta this summer, and was hoping to get a copy then, but we were a bit to soon…luckily my family in the States promised me to send me one in september, hurray!
    Enjoy all the fun and excitement around the book, and thank you for your great blog!
    Love from Holland,
    Nicole
    P.s. Are there any good tips on how to melt the candy melts in the book? I have tried it so many times(the Wilton ones) but I never get them to the right consistency, like in your video??

  65. I can’t wait to get my book!!! I first made cake balls and cake pops two years ago when you were featured on The Pioneer Woman’s blog. My daughter and I hosted a baking party last Christmas and I introduced her friends to making cake pops. They had a great time. I can’t wait to try your new recipes.

    Loved the video. I learned something – I didn’t realize I was supposed to dip the lollipop stick in the candy before sticking it into the cake ball. I have always put the sticks in the ball and then put them in the freezer.

    Thanks for the video!

    Stef :)

  66. Hi Bakerella!!!! I receive my copy yesterday!!!!! Many cool ideas, I really love it! Love the flowers and butterflies, and also the witches cake pops!!!

  67. That video was great!

    I really want to buy your book but one thing is stopping me is that I live in the Netherlands and I find it really REALLY hard to get some of the cute supplies and ingredients you use i.e. Yesterday I had to cycle 30 mins to the nearest drug store in order to buy bicarbonate of soda for baking! I’d have no idea where I could even locate things like candy melts, etc. Guess it doesn’t help that I’m also an expat.

    Was wondering if any other Dutch people could tell me if it’s possible to locate some of the stuff needed for the projects in the book?

  68. Congratulations Bakerella – you are an amazing inspiration! I love the creativity of your work and I always smile when I see the next sugar injection in cyberspace! Enjoy the wonderful journey you are creating.

  69. Yippee – Amazon told me it’s on it’s way to me downunder. Can’t wait. Happiness to you.

  70. Congrats on the book! I
    Do you know when it’ll be available in Australia? I seriously cannot wait. :)
    xx <3

  71. I LOVE it! You look great and so natural, and it makes me very very excited to see the book!

    Really helpful video too, some great tips, picked up some things I didn’t know, like not rolling the cake pop in the candy melts and dipping the stick in the chocolate first!

    Is that your kitchen? It looks amazing, and I want it!!!!

    Well done on the book, I bet it will be great!

  72. Congratulations!!! Can’t wait to get my copy! Are you going to be doing any book signings???

  73. Your video is awesome! You did a great job…makes me want to make me some cake :) Can’t wait to get your book and make you sign it!!

  74. Got mine last night. Can’t wait to sit down and read it!!!!!

  75. I want a copy!! TAT Sadly, all I can do now is to wait some of em gets shipped to the Philippines. Micah looks like a really sweet camera man – and pink IS manly! :D

    Awesome video too! Good job, bakerella! ^o^

  76. Thank you for sharing your talent, looking forward to the book! Best of luck ;)

    Off to Cake Pop dreaming.
