What’s cuter than a cupcake? A cake pop, of course! Wildly popular blogger Bakerella (aka Angie Dudley) has turned cake pops into an international sensation! Cute little cakes on a stick from decorated balls to more ambitious shapes such as baby chicks, ice cream cones, and even cupcakes these adorable creations are the perfect alternative to cake at any party or get-together. Martha Stewart loved the cupcake pops so much she had Bakerella appear on her show to demonstrate making them. Now Angie makes it easy and fun to recreate these amazing treats right at home with clear step-by-step instructions and photos of more than 40 featured projects, as well as clever tips for presentation, decorating, dipping, coloring and melting chocolate, and much more.
This was another impulse check out. Putting displays of new books or books on a certain theme near the check out area is a smart move on libraries. I frequently end up checking out something that I might not have otherwise checked out.
The cake projects in this book are adorable. I’m not sure that I have the talent to recreate them, but I did find the base recipe to be clear and easy to follow. And as for the delightful projects – well we always need something to aspire to . . .
I often check out cookbooks at the library, but I don’t always decided to add them to my own personal library. I will be purchasing this one.
Here’s my own version of Cake Balls (if I’d put them on a stick, I would call them Cake Pops.) They are a big hit with my family, my book club and my co-workers.
