Before we go any further, I have a confession to make. While I've often dreamt of whipping up beautiful pies and delectable cakes, I can't bake. I even got one of those glistening Kitchen Aid mixers hoping it would motivate me to attempt some sweet treats. Yet two years later, it still sits alone, gathering dust in a cabinet, never having been used. But now that I've found Bakerella, that's all going to change.
What I love move most about Bakerella is that it focuses on fun and easy baking. None of the recipes are intimidating, even for a novice like me. You can find recipes and instructions for everything from the adorable cupcake pops pictured above (a Bakerella signature creation!) and these funky flower cake pops:
To cookies, desserts and these yummy takes on the traditional pie:
Martha Stewart liked Bakerella's creations so much that she invited her on her show to demonstrate how to make the cupcake pops. I mean really, impressing Martha? Does it get any better than that?
So even though Gabrielle and Alaina's first birthday party hasn't happened yet, I'm already planning their super sweet second. I'm envisioning a beautiful buffet filled with all of Bakerella's delicious desserts and a design-your-own cupcake pop station for the kids. You probably think I'm crazy but trust me, once you visit the site, you'll get the baking bug too!
