"Cake pops are eye-catchers at every party"
The inventor of cake pops: Angie Dudley, aka "Bakerella".
ChroniquesDuVasteMonde.com: You are considered the inventor of cake pops. How did it all start?
Angie Dudley: I made the first cake pops in early 2008: pink cake pops and cupcake pops. When I posted them on my blog "Bakerella.com", people were immediately fascinated. The Idea "Cake on a Stick" spread on the internet, I was invited to the Martha Stewart Show to show how to make cake pops - and they've just become more popular ever since!
ChroniquesDuVasteMonde.com: Cake pops are such an obvious idea - and yet they inspire people. I wonder why?
Angie Dudley: The idea of a glazed cake ball is intriguing to anyone who has never seen or tried such a thing. But now there are not only cake balls, but endless design ideas! This makes cake pops an eye-catcher at every party and every meeting they bring with them. And because they are so small, they are perfect as finger food!
Cake Pops: Recipes and tips from the ChroniquesDuVasteMonde cuisine
ChroniquesDuVasteMonde.com: But for most of your fans, cake pops might be a sweet idea - way too much to do for yourself ...
Angie Dudley: On the contrary - a lot of people do it themselves! People just love it - it's fun and you can let off steam creatively. I keep getting mails from fans who want to show me their cake pops. Have a look at the "Pop Stars" section on my website. You'll be surprised how many pics of other cake pop-ups there are.
ChroniquesDuVasteMonde.com: What do you recommend for beginners who want to get started on cake pops for the first time?
Angie Dudley: Simple but effective: a round cake pop with pretty sprinkles - you can color them to any occasion. You can also divide up the work: Bake the cake the night before - and take care of the next day for diving and decorating.
ChroniquesDuVasteMonde.com: Where do you get the ideas for your cake pops?
Angie Dudley: I love to play around and come up with cute treats! I let myself be inspired by everything around me: sweets, samples or even travel. I still have countless ideas for new cake pops on paper.
ChroniquesDuVasteMonde.com: Speaking of new ideas: Have you ever thought about savory cake pops?
Angie Dudley: My blog is all about sweets - so I stick to cake. Otherwise, I would certainly try something hearty on a stick!
