Bakerella in Toronto!

Share it!   


This adorable lady doesn’t need explaining; I’m sure you already know who she is; it’s Bakerella, and she was in Toronto this past weekend! I can’t tell you how excited I was (actually we were), to hear she was coming; my friend Kim and I have been talking about it for weeks.

She was so lovely in every way!  (Sorry about the camera settings in some of these photos b.t.w.)

Loved the shoes Bakerella – so Barbarella!

Her mom, Sandy, was such a sweetheart too.  Here she is with Bakerella and Kim.

Of course we had to get some pics of the charming cake pops.

They’re adorable and delicious!  If you haven’t seen her feast-for-the-eyes blog Bakerella yet, you need to go check it out!  Angie’s site is full of amazingly creative sweet treats where she shares easy to follow visual how-tos and more.

Here I am with Bakerella getting my Cake Pops book signed.

Here’s Kim, Bakerella and a Christmas Elf.  😉

Some of Bakerella’s fans made her the cutest gifts; like these sweet ‘cupcake pop ornaments’. (I forgot to get your name but would love to chat with you.  If you see this post please email me).

Thanks to Bakerella for these cute cake pop buttons!

I had fun making these cookies for Angie.

Bakerella, thank you so much for coming to Canada!  It was so much fun to talk with you!



p.s.  For those of you who went to the Williams-Sonoma book signing on Saturday, I’d love to see pics if you’d like to share them on my facebook page here.

    Hey Marian,
    Love, love, love this post! You actually beat me to the punch! My post has the exact same title but I have not yet had a chance to post it. Rich and I were fortunate enough to be at Williams Sonoma on Saturday and there will be many pics on my site by Monday. We also hung out with Angie later that day…what a doll!
    Love your cookie pops. I need some lessons from you!

    Wow…my two heroes together!! Double wow!!
    Marian…I had a question too and this gives me the opportunity to ask! I am planning on making rainbow cookies using multiple colors of your royal icing recipe. Should I pipe the colors all one after another or should I wait for one to dry and then the next? Looks wise I will be OK with either look..but I wasn’t sure about bleeding. I plan to do a Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red…not exactly VIBGYOR.
    Thanks in advance!

    @ Melissa:
    Your husband’s proposal to you via Bakerella was just so thoughtful and sweet. That’s wonderful that you three got to finally meet! Looking forward to the post!

    @ Serene:
    I’d probably do one color at a time, letting each one almost completely dry before I added the next one. That’s just me though!

    Thank you all for the comments!

    I had a great time with you Marian, as I always do….I know that you all don’t realize this but the pics do not do any justice at all to how absolutely beautiful the large cookie of Bakerella was…all the cookies for that matter! You are truly the best cookie decorator that I have seen!

    @ Serene:
    I agree…double wow! =)

    I totally agree with Kimmie. You are the best cookie decorator I have ever seen as well! I love how the dress on the large Bakerella cookie has an “A” for “Angie”. OR am I seeing things? Anyways, I’m glad you had a great time and found the time to post about it.

    Pretty cheesy of me wasn’t it. ;-D (The letter A)

    I don’t think it’s cheesy at all. It’s subtle and totally works!

    […] The taste difference between it and my sugar cookie recipe is subtle, but this one definitely tastes like a traditional shortbread, and *gasp* has one whole cup of cornstarch in it! I couldn’t believe it when I first made it, and was a little doubtful about how successful the recipe would be, but it turns out that the cornstarch in this version of shortbread is what helps give the cookie a ‘melt-in-your-mouth’ sensation. Thanks to my dear friend Kim whom I adore, for sharing her family’s recipe with me… She’s not on-line, but she’s crazy about baking too, and we’ve experienced many sweet adventures together.
