A Bakerella Book Signing

Today was an exciting day for me– I got to meet a fellow blogger whose blog I have been reading for a while – she just came out with a new book!

Any other Bakerella fans out there?

I have been reading Bakerella’s blog for a while now and I am so in love with her Cake Pops and Cupcake Pops. They are too stinkin’ cute!

As soon as the book tour schedule went up, I put it right on my calendar! I was so excited to meet the lovely woman behind the blog (and the Pops!)

I got to the mall about 2 hours early because I had a few errands to run (Aka I had to check out the Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale) and I am glad I got there early because there was a big line waiting to get into the store for the signing.

I took a seat against the wall and began checking out my new book.

 IMG_0397

So many glorious creations!

 IMG_0398

How cute are the Cake Pops and Balls? I can’t wait to make them!

 IMG_0399

Umm…these might be necessary in the coming months!

Before I knew it, we were heading inside the store for a Bakerella demo!

Dear Bakerella, Can you please make my wedding cake?

Bakerella ( aka Angie Dudley) came out and did a little Q&A with the fans. She talked about how to make her pops and gave people some problem solving advise. She has an adorable southern accent! So cute!

 IMG_0411 

She also told us about some of her favorite props for making the pops which will come in handy when I venture down the pop making road!

IMG_0414

We also learned a bit about how her book came to be. She was just blogging her pops online and it had been her dream to write a book when a publisher approached her. Sounds very familiar to what is happening to lots of bloggers in the community lately! So exciting!

After the demo we got back in line with our books to get them signed.

IMG_0419

While waiting in line we were each given a cake pop! Yay!

 IMG_0425

After a few minutes it was my turn to meet Bakerella! I told her I loved her blog and her pops were adorable. I also told her about my blog. It was fun to meet a big blogger like her in real life.

IMG_0421 

Did I mention I love this cake?!

IMG_0422

It wasn’t long after I left the store that I had to break into my Cake Pop. I wanted to save it, but I knew if I did I would break it and I wanted to enjoy it.

 IMG_0426

Chocolate covered Cake Pop a la Bakerella herself? Yes, Please!

IMG_0427IMG_0428

OH. MY GOD.

It was amazing. The perfect bite sized treat. The cake inside was so moist and the chocolate on the outside was decadently delicious!

IMG_0435

Also, check out how Bakerella signed my book? Yay!

IMG_0436

After meeting the lady of the hour we were given some fun buttons.

 IMG_0438

 IMG_0439IMG_0440

Bakerella buttons! I love them!

 IMG_0441

Aside from the book purchase, I also picked up these little decorative cutters.

IMG_0442 

The word on the street is Bakerella uses this cutter for the Cupcake Pops.

IMG_0445

Clearly I needed it in my life!

IMG_0446 

I got lots of other fun shapes in this little tin.

IMG_0447

All in all it was a fun filled afternoon.

 IMG_0448

Have you ever made Cake Pops? What do you think of them?
