Last week I got the MOST AMAZING surprise a Cake Popper could ask for...a FEATURE on Bakerella's uber-inspiring baking blog! I'm OFFICIALLY A POP STAR!


For those of you who don't know...because maybe you've been living under a rock or sitting on a stump somewhere in the wilderness...Bakerella is basically the QUEEN of Cake Pops! Finding her website was a life-changing experience for me...whoa right...I know that might sound a little extreme...but it's the TRUTH!

I was instantly smitten with her site...the way she connected to her readers...and of course the CAKE POPS! I had never even heard of a Cake Pop before Bakerella...imagine that!

The thing is, more than anything, reading her blog gave ME the motivation to try my hand at Cake Pops. I immediately became addicted to creating the little balls of joy on a stick....and the rest...well you know ;)

Making the leap and deciding to start selling my goodies...creating Sweet Cheeks Tasty Treats as a way to provide people with the deliciousness I had to offer....and creating this blog as a way to connect with clients and fellow creators...it was ALL an extension of that first seed of inspiration I found in Bakerella's blog!

This is me with Miss Bakerella herself at her Chicago book signing last Fall...do I look excited? ;)

I believe in the power of prayer and positive thinking...I've been sending only my best thoughts in her direction the past few months. She's been dealing with some major health issues and even through all of that, she still manages to reach out and inspire those of us who truly adore her and wish that we could in some way return just a bit of the happiness she so generously bestowed upon us!

Here are some of my FAVORITE Cake Pop Creations....I hope they bring a smile to your face! My hope is that in some small way, the baking and creating I'm doing will maybe inspire some of you! Happiness grows the more you share it right?!?! Enjoy...and THANK YOU ALL for following me and inspiring me EVERY DAY!
