Just plain sweet!

I received the best Valentine’s Day card yesterday and it wasn’t even addressed to me.

It was from a sweet, eight-year-old little girl named Ellica and written to her mom.

Let me show you…


Dear Mom

Happy Valentine’s Day! I have a TREAT for U!

Here’s the treat!


Here are some yummies from Bakerella. U can look um up on

I love the… You could try to make em too.

Kids are so cute.


I think she’s serious about this, mom. She made a pretty extensive list. You better get baking and pronto.

Oh Ellica … you absolutely made my day. Thank you! And thank you, Teresa, for emailing your daughter’s valentine photos.

Hey Ellica, if you’re reading this … I’m going to send you something, too. Be on the lookout.

  14. That is so cute. I love it!

  15. That is so cute and so funny… I wonder how she heard about your blog… she clearly did her research!

  16. Oh My! Absolutely heartwarming =)

  17. Ok, this is the cutest thing I have ever seen! Yep, Mom better get busy, LOL.

    I may have to send you some pics of my daughter and her friend dipping cake bites, although not too “pretty” if you know what I mean!!! LOL But for Seniors in HS, they look cute!!

  18. Wow, a great sweet daughter AND a great sweet grand daughter, I couldn’t be any prouder (grin Grin GRIN) :-) :o) :D

  19. How sweet! BTW, I introduced someone new to cake pops today. She’d never heard of them. I’m sure she’ll be visiting soon :)

  20. Oh wow, I have had so much fun reading these comments. Thanks everyone, and yes, Ellica is quite a sweetheart. A bright spot in every day! :)

    This has been a great start to my week! Teresa

  21. Oh, sweet Ellica needs a special “Bakerella in the Making” pastry chef’s cap…or cupcake with really cool edible printing on it! :-)

  22. Aah cute overload!! I like how she lists the recipes by the blog entry title, especially “I have a problem.” LOL! I hope whatever Ellica gets is as sweet as she is! =)

  23. That is the sweetest Valentine I have ever seen!

  24. That’s super cute! Kids are so adorable!

  25. what a huge compliment to you!

  26. So sweet – I´ll will tell you even in little Denmark -we have heard of Bakerella. My 4 year old daughter she just loves cake pops.
    You are a good inspiration for new ideas.
    Keep up the good work!
    Love you!!

  27. Oh this is TOO cute. Haha. I am just awing and cracking up – simultaneously.

  28. That’s adorable! How sweet that you got to see the card.

  29. That’s so great! And it makes me miss the days when I could hand someone at my house a to-do list and things would happen. Now such lists are just handed to ME! ;)

  30. awwwwww. this made my heart happy.

    you are too cute, both of you.

  31. Dear Bestest Baker,
    What a sweet little girl. I bet she could learn to make Bakerella treats too. It’s a great way to spend quality time together in the kitchen.

  32. SWEET! So, can we get the story behind this? Has Ellica been reading your site on her own or was mom a big fan and Ellica made the card knowing mom was a fan? I’m so curious!

  33. Aw that is SWEET!

    I have a question in regards to the cake pops, I tried to make some this weekend in order to practice becuase I want to make the cupcake pops for my baby shower this weekend, and Thank God I did.
    The balls were a mess :( Im not sure why but they were so sticky even after freezing them for over an hour. so once i tried to cover them in chocolate they were all soft n sticky again…I used marthas recepie for the cream cheesee frosting, but did not have the paddle attachment to my electric mixer i used the regular attachment so from the start the frosting was not looking fluffy as she said it should on there…could this have been my mistake?
    What can I do different so my pops can come out the way they are supposed to for this weekend? I already have everything to make them as my favors.
    Thank you so much for all yor wonderful ideas :)

  34. That is too cute! My 6 year-old boy loves watching cooking shows with me and picking out stuff for me to try. Kids are so fun!

  35. Bakerella, our 12yo daughter baked for us for Valentines Day… she it totally besotted with your site! I blogged about it yesterday here
    You are so inspiring. xx

  36. That is so sweet. I know that it made your day.

  37. Adorable! I think it’s wonderful that you inspire so many people of all ages and lifestyles. I aspire to touch people like you do! Thanks Bakerella!

  38. My heart is meltier than a bowl of chocolate in a double boiler.

    What a sweet story!

  39. That is the cutest thing ever! That made my day and I am sure it made your day also! I love kids… they say the cutest things.

  40. Omg! That is the cutest thing I have ever seen! I bet that just totally made your day!

  41. Ellica needs to walk on over to my house and we can Bakerella it up…..Great fact about Ellica–she loves veggies too–I hold her solely responsible for my daughter enjoying brocolli! She shoved it in her mouth when they were babies in preschool together. Sweet girl! Sweeter than a cake pop!

  42. Thanks for all the great comments everyone. Yes, Ellica is a doll! Hope you had a sweet day yesterday.

    Bakerella, I had Ellica go to your site this morning and she was amazed. She said, “how did that get on there? Did you put it there?” I had to explain that I sent it to you! :) She LOVED seeing it and is thrilled that you liked it so much!

    Happy Monday! Teresa

  43. This is what I call a “keeper”. Tuck it away so you can get it out when you need a lift! :)

  44. hilarious! Not very subtle, eh?

  45. This is so sweet & she has great taste too.

  46. That is so wonderful for the Mum and for you. Gorgeous and to be treasured forever.

    PS I made a batch of Cakepops for our school Bake Sale here in Cheltenham England last week. They were a BIG hit! Will send you some photos if you like. Think I’ve started a craze, have even had to promise a photo tutorial on facebook with links to UK substitute products. Have you trademarked them yet? You should ;-) xx

  47. That is just precious! Mom is going to be BUSY! LOL

  48. That was really cute. What a lovely girl. Thank you for all the inspiration and recipes. Like your site/blog a lot!
