Bakerella Book Signing & a “Cake Pops” Giveaway!

Who doesn’t love Bakerella!?  I mean seriously… she’s mastered the Cake Pop and at least a dozen other yummy baked goods.   She’s a baking master and… she’s as sweet as sugar!

Here she is in all her cuteness at her Seattle “Cake Pop” book signing!

See all those people behind her… holding up books…. I’m one of them! (can’t see me though… I was off to the side)

Bakerella started off with a Q & A session where she gave lots of tips for making the perfect cake pop!

Here are a couple of her tips…

Tip 1:  Use plastic deep plastic bowls, like this one, for your candy melts and dipping your pops.  Plastic and deep are they key here.

Tip 2: Use edible ink pens to create faces and decorations on your Cake Pops.

Guess who else was at the book signing?  Jessie from CakeSpy and Carrie from Bella Cupcake Couture!  Aren’t they just too cute for words?

Thanks Bakerella for this photo!

And how stinkin cute is this little girl who came with her Mom for the book signing!!

until finally… we meet!

And she signed my “Cake Pops” book!!

    A favorite Bakerella Cake Pop ?? I am pretty sure that is not possible to pick just one. I found her site just about a year ago and fell in love within seconds. I have made many many cake pops since then.. all inspired by her. Some of my favorites.. are the brownie with walnuts… the chocolate cake with peanut butter centers… White cake with coconut rum… there are a million more I want to try. Bakerella is Awesome and you Betsy are too!
