Pages and Post-Its


See all these pages?

I’ve been pouring over them this weekend trying to meet a deadline for a project I’ve been working on for more than a year now. It’s a book. Yeah, a book. Crazy, right?! Well, it’s written, designed and now it’s in the final stages of edits before it goes to press. Man, that’s weird to me. I’m soooo not someone who ever thought they would have a book. And, definitely not a book you could walk into a bookstore and find. I must be dreaming. Somebody pinch me.

Do you want to see some of it?


Sorry… I can’t show you the inside just yet. That would spoil all the fun.


I wish I could though. Really, I do.


For instance, I’d love to tell you what I did with these.

I think you’d smile.

But, I can’t

I can tell you this, though…

The book has everything to do with these…


At the end of 2008, I went cake pop crazy for a few weeks and made a gazillion pops in different designs. Many of them you haven’t seen yet. I decided back then not to show them all on the site… just in case I ever put a book together and tried to publish it on my own, I wanted to have some that were a surprise to make it more fun.

Try to publish on my own… hahahaha! I’m so glad I didn’t go that direction because I don’t think I would have ever finished it, let alone be able to stock and ship books from my pantry. I don’t picture that going well.

Luckily, I didn’t have to. The publisher I’m working with has kept me focused with deadlines. Deadlines, as much as they stress me out… deadlines help. I had no idea the amount of work that would be involved when I started this. From the hours and hours of writing, baking, dipping, decorating, photographing, and hair pulling for me … to all the time editing, typesetting, and designing on the publishers part. I have a huge respect for anyone who has ever written a book or been part of the process. It’s a monumental project.

I don’t have firm details yet, but it’s on target to come out later this year.

My biggest hope is that it answers your questions about cake pops and inspires you to create more fun designs of your own.

Thank you guys so much for loving these little cakes on a stick. I never would have thought I’d be here right now when I made these.

  1. cool when im older i want to have my own cook book

  2. I am in love with you and your creativity! You are an inspiration to me!
    Btw you make everything look so easy and I love this about you! :)

  3. I love cake pops! I’ve been having so much fun with these. Thank you! Can any tell me where I can find Black small round confetti? I can’t find them anywhere! I wanted them for one of my new projects and didn’t want to use editable ink. HELP!!!

  4. When does it come out???? I MUST HAVE IT!!

  5. wow. i am super super excited. I’ve been following you for like quite a while (not stalkerish lol) and i’ve actually made a few of your cake pops about every week for a month now and have also been dreaming about them in my sleep lol.
    do you know if you will be selling them at places like hobby lobby or books a million?
    looking forward to your new book!
    btw:my classmates all love your ideas.

  6. You are a true artist and a great inspiration!!! How do we order your book?

  7. oh wow! bakerella! finally you are publishing a book! i can’t wait to get it. so excited!!

    congratulations my dear!

  8. When you make cake pops, how long are they good for in the freezer? If you do freeze them, will the chocolate coating get “sweaty” when you thaw them?

    Love your site!!

  9. Just pre-ordered the book. I’m so excited, I can hardly wait!
    Any idea when it’ll be ready to ship?

  10. Hi! Im new to the site and i am hooked! I have read every one of your recipes and love them all! My favorite is the cake pops! So creative and cute! I just wanted to say i cant wait till your book comes out bakerella! Ill buy a copy! Im telling my friends about your site and they are falling in love with it!

  11. awesome coooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. That book looks like SOOOO much fun! I love making cookies and sometimes make fun/adventurous ones. I tried my hand at making an interesting cupcake this past St. Paddy’s day (Chocolate Guinness mini cupcakes with Irish Cream frosting). My co-workers thought they were strange but they were a big hit amongst my amigos and boyfriend. If I win the book I will bake/decorate one recipe each week and post it on my bloggie. <3 <3 <3

  13. Ohh I am gonna buy this one when it comes out!

  14. I’m so excited. You’re so creative and you’re my “go to” for every holiday I volunteer for at my kid’s schools. They will fly off the shelves!

  15. I’ve been following your site for some time. Never have made anything just admired at the beautiful work. I’d really like to make some pops for my husband in Afghanistan, but I’m not sure what will hold up in transit and not spoil for up to 4 weeks travel time.

    Are there cake/frosting/decoration recipes that I can combine together to make a super long lasting pop that wont spoil before they make it to him?

  16. I’m guessing your absence might be due to a CRAZY deadline for your book. So if it’s crunch time for you, GOOD LUCK in getting everything done!!!! We’re cheering you on from all over the world! YOU ROCK!!!

  17. Bakerella…so sorry I missed this post…but checked out your site today and am so excited for you….Congratulations! I will be so looking forward to your book.

    I had a family baby shower for my daughter and made your cake pops to decorate her cake and they were darling! A big hit with everyone!

    Keep up the good work…

  18. Ohhhh, I can’t wait for the unveiling! I know it’ll be delicious! Congratulations!!!

  19. YAY!!! that is so awesome!!!! I cake wait to get a copy!!

  20. Congrats! I hope you do plenty of book signings around town! I’d love to see you at Cake Art except their parking lot is so tiny!

  24. Coming from somebody who collects cooking and entertaining books, I am SO happy you are going with Chronicle! My friends think I’m crazy, but if it’s done by them, I have to buy it because I know it’s a good book!

  25. Congratulations Bakerella.

  46. First of all, I will be marching my butt to the store to buy your book when it is available. I love your site, love your ideas and basically just love YOU. Part of the reason I adore you so much is because you and your cupcake pops have helped me to raise bunches of money for our local Relay For Life.

    I started making the pops after your Relay For Life post and I haven’t stopped. I sold about 400 last season and just started up again a month ago and have already sold about 200 more. People ask for them, beg for them… they order them by the dozen and flock to my office when I have them available. THANK YOU for making a difference. You have helped in the fight more than you know. I Relay in memory of my dad and your pops have helped me to share the Relay message and share my dad with hundreds of people.

    You rock, Bakerella!

  116. Fantastic news, you are such an inspiration. Make sure they are available in Australia. Can’t wait.

  117. I can’t believe there is going to be a book on the cake pops. I will certainly be one of the first to buy it. It will be for my daughter. She is crazy for those pops.

  118. I know exactly what its like to get a book published. I still help my professor with this and It really takes forever to get everything organized, especially if lots of people are involved. Its a lot of work but I think you’d have an awesome book and I’d definately buy it!!

  119. That is so exciting! Congratulations!

  120. Congrats Bakerella! I love you and your fabulous site and can’t wait to go buy your book for everyone on my Christmas list!

  121. How exciting, I can’t wait to see some of the cake pops that you’ve been keeping from us! Congratulations!

  122. I am so excited for you (and for us). I always thought you should put a book out because the things you make are amazing. I cannot wait for your book to come out!!!!! Congratulations!!

  123. Congrats! I’ll be asking my husband to get me a copy. I’m addicted to your site. I check it almost every day and recently made some minty oreo truffles (on a stick) for V-Day.

    Very wise of you to hold back some of your recipes and photos. I’ve been harassing scoochmaroo from the Instructables website for passing off your creations as her own. I guess she’s an admin for the site though – says you’ve received enough credit in the comments and leaves mine unposted.

    West coast book tour please! San Francisco or Santa Cruz would be just fine with me : )
