I have some really fun Cake Pops news to announce today. I’m not even sure where to begin because I still can’t believe it myself.
First… I’ve said this before, but I could have never imagined the kind of wonderful adventure that I’ve been on since first posting cake pops here on this website. And when I say adventure – it’s everything from the book, to all of you that I’ve met and to each and every email and story that you’ve shared. Every smile that you’ve given me and all of the proud moments each time I see the cake pops you guys are creating. You make my life brighter. All because of a little cake on a stick.
Now, like I said, I have something super exciting to share with you.
So …… I’m just going to say it.
Here goes… I’m kinda nervous.
This is so crazy…
I have a toy line coming out next month at Toys R Us!
It’s a Cake Pops Toy! Like for real.
I told you. Crazy, right?! But sooo exciting! Butterflies in my stomach exciting.
The toy is inspired by my book and lets little ones play and create cake pops at home.
One thing that I wasn’t expecting after the book came out was how much kids enjoyed making cake pops. Not just eating them, but making them. And even younger children that would ask for the book as their bedtime story. Some even used it as a learning tool – like using the photo index in the back as a matching game to find the recipe. When I was first approached to do a toy I wasn’t expecting it, but when I thought about all those sweet stories, a toy seemed like a perfect way to let kids enjoy cake pops even more … and a yummy way to inspire creativity. Plus, I feel like I’m playing most of the time in the kitchen anyway. Perfect fit.
This is The Ultimate Cake Pops Set and it comes with a sweet cake pop stand, cake pop tray, mixing bowl, dipping bowl, cake crumbler, and presses to help you make four different cake pop shapes. And there’s lollipop sticks and an instructional placemat, too.
Just grab some cake, frosting and candy coating and kids can start creating.
They’ll call it an excuse to play with their food. And I hope they have a blast doing it.
I do. I’ve been having fun using the toy since I received the production samples. (And I’m loving the pink cake pop stand. Yay!)
It’s good for kids of all ages I guess.
Actually… this could pretty easily be an adult product. You can get one for your kids and use it for yourself. I won’t tell.
The shapes you can make include, circle, square, triangle and cupcake!
I cannot get over this.
Here’s another toy in the line.
This is the Cake Pops Molds Set and it comes with one press, and molds to make three different cake pop shapes (bear, flower and heart) … Plus instructions and lollipop sticks, too.
And, in Canada, you can find the toys in Wal-Mart stores.
And in Australia, look at Myer Stores in October.
Stay tuned and I’ll let you know when it hits the shelves. I’ll probably be stalking the stores until it does.
It’s in Toys R US now!!!!
