My GIFT to one of you!!!

I had plans to post this giveaway earlier....but...well....Christmas kind of took over! The Holiday orders I filled kept me up late all last week, but it was so super exciting to know that my treats were going to be gracing so many tables!

This little side venture of mine has been SO truly rewarding. I love having a reason to be in the kitchen creating on a regular basis. I am BEYOND thrilled by all of the friendships I have made. I feel truly blessed to have found an outlet and a way to connect with like-minded people!!!

Many of you probably don't know this, but I just made my first ever Cake Pop in July of this year! It was, as they say, history from there ;) I fell head-over-heels and have been at it ever since. I've had so much fun finding inspiration from my fellow Cake Poppers....which of course includes the Queen of Cake Pops herself....Bakerella!

I got to meet Bakerella at her Chicago book signing earlier this year. You can read all about it here. I had preordered a copy of Bakerella's Cake Pops book ages ago, and I also ended up winning a copy as part of my Pizzazzerie prize pack (you remember....when back when I won the Cupcake Skewer Contest right?!?!) Well....when we went to the book signing you had to present a receipt showing you had purchased the book from Williams Sonoma to be able to have it signed....so I bought another one. This might sound like overkill....but at that time I hadn't received my copy from Pizzazzerie yet and I didn't want  to miss my chance to have a signed copy!!!

Really...it's good news....because it leaves me with an extra copy....you know....one I'm willing to actually part with ;) Maybe you'd like a copy for yourself....or maybe you know an aspiring Cake Popper...

  13. I recently discovered the fabulousness of Cake Pops through Bakerella's website. I was in charge of bringing dessert to my families Christmas dinner and I was searching for something spectacular yet easy to make when I stumbled upon her site. Oh, how the ideas started coming to me! First I decided to make chocolate pops and shape them into reindeer, but I did not have anything for antlers. So then I decided to make Christmas Trees with presents but I could not get the shape of the tree right. So then it was Snowmen! But again, I could not get them to look right either. So I finally settled on presents (anyone can shape a square right? lol). I shaped the cake into squares and dipped them into the chocolate. It wasn't until after they dried and I was getting ready to decorate them that I realized that my "artistic" ability was not what I thought it to be as I couldn't even make bows to top these misshaped presents I had just made!Frustrated and near tears, I ended up drizzling them with melted down red and green frosting and took them to the dinner, embarrassed with my creation. Although my family swears they tasted good I would really like to win this book so I can redeem myself and make Cake Pops again (red velvet this time!) for my family and show them that I CAN make something amazing! Thank you!
