Back in October, Bakerella visited Utah on her Cake Pops book-signing tour! So naturally I had to attend and I was lucky enough to meet up with my SLC girlfriends, Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod and Becky of Vintage Mixer. We had a fun time meeting Angie and hanging around Williams-Sonoma (I love that store!).
Here we are with some Utah goodies for Bakerella. I'm all about spreading the Utah loves so I brought up some Sweet Tooth Fairy cupcakes and cake bites, Shirley J food products, Blue Cattle Truck Vanilla, REAL Salt and other local deliciousness. Bakerella, I hoped you loved them!
We decided at the book signing that we'd get together and have a fun little Cake Pop baking and decorating adventure! We met up at Maria's house and got to bake in her brand new remodeled kitchen! Holy guacamole it was so beautiful! I am so happy for Maria and Josh, they've been working so hard on it for the last few months. You gotta check it out, she's got some crazy-amazing appliances from Thermador.
Okay, back to the Cake Pops. These things are adorable. Angie's book was so helpful with all her tips, tricks and step-by-step instructions. She really makes making Cake Pops doable. I had fun melting the candy melts and forming the balls. So much fun in fact, that I got candy melts all over my new sheepskin boots! Anyone know how to get them off? Anyway, after a few tries the three of us ladies really figured out how to work those cake pops. Practice makes perfect.
We went festive and made Bakerella's snowmen, what do you think?
Here's our snowmen. I took a special liking to the one on the right. He was my first successful one and I named him Sebastian.
Becky came up with the cool idea to do ornaments. She even brought real ornament tops for us to out on top. I thought these were very pretty.
Here's more. We had tons of options for decorating sugars and toppings.
If you don't own Bakerella's Cake Pops cookbook, go out and get it. It would make the perfect holiday gift for any baking or decorating enthusiast.
Be sure to read Maria's and Becky's posts about our Cake Pops adventure. Thanks again, friends. It's always fun to meet up and create.
