I went to get a few groceries and found this looking back at me. This is the coolest thing. I couldn’t wait to show you. More about it soon… once I stop pinching myself.

P.S. I don’t usually have my camera handy when I’m buying butter, but I thought it might come in handy this time.

  7. Your book just arrived from Amazon. It’s fantastic. I can’t wait to take it to work and share. We’re all addicted to your site. A group of us want to get together for a cake pop party.

    So have you thought of trying to make the penguins of madagascar? Wouldn’t they make the cutest pops?

  10. OMG! That is sooooo Cool! Congrats!

  11. The first thing that caught my eye when I was standing in line to pay at Meijers…was the pumpkin pop..and I thought..Oh my gosh…this is just like the ones Bakerella makes. When I pulled the little book up ….THEN I SAW YOUR PIC….of course I bought one. Lots of other good stuff in this cook book!

  24. I got this as soon as it hit the shelves. These little things are fantastic! The creative possibilities are endless.

  25. Awesome, you deserve all the recognition you’re getting!

  26. I bought this, then came home to your book on my doorstep :)

  27. Awesome! When I was a kid I used to beg my mom to buy these books in line at the market instead of begging for gum or candy (strange, I know!)

  28. Congratulations! I just received mine in the mail and was excited to see you in it with some of your recipes because I love following your blog. You do kick-ass stuff!!

  29. waaaay cool!!!!

    congrats on the success! you are an inspiration!

  30. I bought it on Tuesday and was surprised to see you inside !!!!
    Congratulations !!!

  31. That is great!! Congratulations! My husband and I love thumbing through those books at the grocery store. I know what I’m buying next time I go to the grocery store! :)

  32. Very cool!!!! I will look for it at the store.

  33. I know!!! I saw this too! First I saw the cake pops and thought “Who’s ripping off Bakerella’s idea?” LOL! Then I picked it up and saw you on it! Congratulations! Very happy your talent is getting noticed!

  34. Tienes mucho talento y te mereces estar en todas las revistas de repostería
    Angie hurtado

  35. I saw this at the store, grabbed it and squealed at my kids, “Look who it is!!!” The three of them just looked at me with blank stares. I think I actually heard crickets. I then showed them the cake pops and they got excited, lol.

  36. AWESOME!!

    I went grocery shopping with my Mom last night and bought one of these in the checkout! I’d never even heard of this magazine before, but I was so excited to see you and your cake pops on there I just had to have it!

    Can’t wait to try out all these recipes <3

  37. So totally cool! You are such an inspiration to me….gotta go to the grocery store now!!!

  38. wow!

  39. Congrats Bakerella,
    You are so awesome and inspiring. When I saw this I was like “OMG I follow that ladies blog.” I had to buy this right then and there. Can’t wait to get your cake pops book!! YOU GO GIRL!!!!

  40. I recently saw your new book on a feature table in Barnes and Noble – how awesome is that?!? =D Congrats!!

  41. congrats. I know you must be EXCITED. May all the best continue to come your way

  42. I couldn’t help myself…had to buy a copy when I was in line @ the grocery last night….can’t wait to try them all!

  43. Hi!
    I wanted to buy this and went on the betty crocker website and couldn’t find it. I live in Michigan and didn’t see it at the grocery store or bookstores. I really want to make those cake pops for a Halloween party! They are too cute!

  44. I just got my cookbook and I have to say I squalled when I saw the UPS man carrying that Barnes & Noble box. Thank you so much for inspiring me. I haven’t been able to put the book down yet. The colors and pictures are fabulous!

  45. Definitely cool. I wish your tour was coming as far north as Boston!

  46. I just bought it at Sam’s Club last night! Lots of new and familiar Bakerella stuff!

    Angie, do you still work outside your home, non-baking related?

  47. awesome! your pops always come out so perfectly!!! how many do you think you’ve created at this point in your lifetime??? ha ha ha.

  48. I’m so happy for you that all these wonderful things are happening! I am sad, however, to learn that the books I have already purchased for Christmas gifts, will not be eligible for autographs at Williams Sonoma. I think it is really shortsighted of them to restrict the signing to books purchased only in their stores! Don’t they realize that everyone who comes to meet you will be shopping??? Now I want to boycott their stores. It’s just not very ‘customer service friendly’ in my opinion. I know as a retailer myself, I would gladly welcome any and all ‘book holders’ to come get their books signed. I know by doing that, there would be happy customers in my store…and would probably shop with me, as well.

  49. I saw it yesterday at the Grocery Store! It was like running into a friend in line! How exciting it was I giggled and said out loud “good for you”! Almost bought just because of you! Then I realized I have that recipe in my computer. Neat!

  50. Woah so cool. x3
    But you didn’t know they were placing it in the magazine?
    Is that even legable? D:

    But awesome! I really want that book of yours x3

    Love from the Netherlands x

  51. So happy for your. Saw you mentioned in a magazine, not sure which one, maybe Woman’s Day.

  52. oh man i have got to go find one!

  53. Just wanted to drop by and say I was able to look through your book yesterday (finally). You have so many creative ideas, I’m just trying to think when I will find the time to try them all. You did an awesome job- hopefully your book’s success will encourage you to write another one very soon. P.S.- You should come visit Kansas City, MO for a book signing!

  54. Congratulations again! You are simply amazing! :D

  55. I saw this when I went to the bookstore after buying some groceries, and of course I bought it!

  56. LOVE it..bought it last night @ Publix :)

  57. I went to buy groceries two day ago and I always look at the magazines stand. I saw your picture and you were sitting in my shopping cart right away.I went home and showed my husband who is taking me to the book signing : ) so happy for you!

  58. I saw this at my local supermarket too and gave an excited grin when I saw your picture!!! Kudos to you!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!

  101. I saw this today when I was in WalMart with my mom and I was like “Mom, that’s her! Remember the book signing I told you I wanted to go to and the cheesecake bites I made the other week?” She didn’t really care, but she’s weird anyway. Congratulations on all your success.

  102. I saw it at the grocery store over the weekend. My hubby thought I was weird when I got all excited.

  103. How exciting!! I can’t wait to see it at my local store.

  104. Woohoo! Super fun, I love that magazine!

  105. OMG, I saw this the other day when I was at the store trying to find 3 oz. sugar free orange jello. I was in line and I was like, “hey those look like cake pops…I make those all the time!” Then I look more closely and was thinking…this lady looks familar and sure enough…it’s you!!
    Love it! Great job!

  106. That is awesome! I love your cake pops, make them for my daycare kids, they think they are so special! Thanks, love your site too!

  109. YAY! Congrats that is so great!

  123. congrats on all the great new publishing!
    i cant wait to find my copy at the grocery store this week!

    quick question:
    how long do the pops last for? do i need to freeze them? i want to make them as party favors but not sure how early i can make them and how long i can keep them for.
    any answers would be great!

  124. Congratulations – you are so special and talented.

  125. Congrats! You’re a cover girl! Well deserved (and just plain fun!)
