Bakerella’s “Cake Pops” Book and Cookbook Giveaway

The first food blog I followed was Angie Dudley’s blog “Bakerella”. To me, it was (and still is) one the most incredible food blogs, and I patiently awaited each fabulous post clicking on her site day after day hoping for her to post again. I was contemplating starting my own blog at the time, and I emailed her and asked a number of questions. She was beyond sweet, helpful and resourceful, and I don’t know if I can ever thank her enough for all of her advice and encouragement. Recently, her incredible first book, “Cake Pops”, was released by Chronicle Books, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy. This book is filled with incredible ideas, photos and recipes on how to turn a cake ball and cake pops into incredible shapes and designs. This book offers step-by-step instruction on how to create these. A few weeks ago, I was so fortunate to meet Angie in person at a conference, and she was so humble, gracious, and nice. I am so excited about her success, and I couldn’t wait to feature her new book on my site. This book is perfect for anyone that loves creativity and food, and I highly recommend it (my kids took it to school the other day, and all of the parents were calling me how to get a copy).

  1. My absolute favorite recipe is the apple pie I make every year once the perfect apples are ready. That’s actually my plan for the week – super excited.
    It’s really neat seeing all of the designs she (“bakerella”) has come up with as well as seeing the designs others have come up with – very cute ideas.

  2. I really enjoy reading Butter + Cream. They cover some great recipes and include a nice amount of personal blogging as well. I’m also hungry and inspired after reading!

  3. Bakerella is definitely one of my favorites too, and coincidentally was ALSO my first baking blog! Nowadays I’m still following Bakerella but also LOVE Bake or Break and Smitten Kitchen!

  4. I’m another Bakerella fan – what she can do with some cake and frosting just blows me away. She’s uber talented and I just love browsing her blog pretty much daily. I’m so happy that she now has a book and I’m really looking forward to all of the great things she’ll come up with in the future!

  5. My first and still fav… Baketella of course. As a result of her blog, all the neighborhood kids knock on the door and ask, “Got cakepops?”!!

  6. I actually made the Red Velvet Cake Pops from her blog. I would love to see the rest of the recipes in her book.

    I also love Pioneer Woman’s book and blog. It’s because of the Pioneer woman that I found Bakerella.

  7. I love these cake pops and can’t wait to make them for my kids! My favorite cooking/baking blog is The Pioneer Woman. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. My favorite blog is definitely Bakerella’s because that’s where I first found out about red velvet cake balls. I’m a college student who doesn’t have a lot of fancy baking equipment or experience, so I love how easier they are to make and how much everyone loves them.

  9. I love Bakerella – but my favorite baking blog would have to be a tie between Culinary Concoctions by Peabody and Lick the Bowl Good – both have great ideas and recipes.

  17. Like so many others here, I enjoy Bakerella & Pioneer Woman blogs. Would love to win Bakerella’s cookbook. Thanks so much for offering it as your cookbook giveaway!

  18. I have just started looking at bakerella’s blog. I love cake balls. There is a place in Minneapolis that makes great double chocolate ones. I am eager to try making her red velvet cake balls. Since moving to Minneapolis I have started a cooking club. We meet once a month and bring some sort of food and enough copies of our recipes for everyone to add to their recipe box. We have talked about doing a dessert theme and this book would be great for me to make a recipe from. I have also recently started a blog and would love to post a review of this book. I tried to order it online but it is sold out. I also wish she was doing a book signing in Minneapolis.

  19. So much fun Alison! How do I choose? I love reading A bountiful Kitchen- it’s a local lady who can REALLY bake!! Hope you’re well and can’t wait for your cookbook!!

  20. My favorite recipe is my flour-less chocolate cake. I make it all the time and eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner until it’s gone! Its rich and smooth and delicious!

  21. The favorite blog is yours Allison. I look at it everyday and have copied many mnay recipes. Not very computer literate so I haven’t got into all the blogs yet. I love love cookbooks and would love to win this one. Look forward to yours also.

  22. The Pioneer Woman and Bakerella are two favorites. This book looks great. I got the Fall Baking Booklet by Betty Crocker that has Bakerella on the cover and her cute Halloween Cake Pops can’t wait to make them.

  23. I’m kind of a baking blog omnivore, but I do love SmittenKitchen, and a simple yogurt cake is one of my favorite things to bake. And I’m already eying the cake pops for Halloween!

  24. I love the cake pops that Bakerella has made so popular. They are my best seller at our handicapped children fundraisers. I follow tons of baking blogs and love them all. Each person has something unique to offer.
