3 Days of Giveaways! Cake Pops Holidays!

I'm going to admit something to you now...I have a little crush on Bakerella.  Bakerella was one of the first food blogs I ever read.  And, I'm blown away every.single.time I pop by.
She has a real name, you know...it's Angie. 

She also has a new book out: Cake Pops Holidays
{More on that in a minute.}

There's a new Ultimate Cake Pops Set!  YES!  It's made for kids, and sold at Toys R Us, but I'm going to tell you...I had as much fun with it as any kid could.

The kit comes with all of the non-edible supplies you need to make cake pops.
Bowls, cake grater, tray...

...molds, sticks, and a holder.

It even comes with a "placemat" of instructions.  I thought that was brilliant.

My kiddo & I set out to make Christmas tree cake pops using the cone shape mold in the kit.

We followed the instructions exactly...

...keep an eye on your kiddo for the finger-licking.  There may be LOTS of hand washing involved.
Yeah buddy, real funny.

The grater was lots of fun, though...despite kiddo getting up to wash his hands 25 times.

Once the cake balls were shaped and dipped, we had CAKE POPS!!!
Plain ones...

And decorated.

It was one of the proudest moment of my life...I'm not even kidding.  The kit made creating them SO easy!  I highly recommend it for any budding baker on your list...or for yourself.  I won't tell.

So, let's talk about Angie's new book now: Cake Pops Holidays.  IT'S ADORABLE!!!  I actually gasped with each turn of the page.

OMGosh!  Those cardinals?!?!?

And these elves?  I can't stop thinking about them.  They're SO darling!

Even if you think you'll never make a cake pop, this book is full of inspiration. Maybe you'll use Angie's cake pops as inspiration for decorated cookies, cakes, cupcakes...and maybe even greeting cards?

When Bakerella had a book signing in Houston last week, I had a book signed for YOU!  Yep, you!
 
(Well, one of you.)

And Angie also brought these cute as a button buttons...for you!

Signed book + cute buttons!   Yay!

To enter: leave a comment right here on the blog (if you're reading this in an email, click on the blog post title to open this post in your browser) telling me if you've ever made a cake pop.

For an extra entry: pop on over to Bakerella, come back here and leave a separate comment stating one cake pop creation or one recipe you'd like to try.

{Notes: US only, please be sure to leave a way to contact you if you win, entries accepted through 11:59pm CST, December 15th.}

Happy Holidays!

  74. My favorite cake pops I made were last year for my daughter's popcorn and movie themed birthday sleepover. I shaped them like pop corn, dipped in yellow, and stuck in a Styrofoam ball in a popcorn bucket. Scatter a few on the platter and they looked like the real deal. The best part was my daughter's smile when she saw them.
