One highlight of our trip to New York was the crazy coincidence that Angie Dudley, known better as BAKERELLA of the cakepops fame, was going to be at Williams-Sonoma for her Cakepop booksigning!
It was a wonderful experience. We ended up getting there half an hour early and the line was already quite long. As a result of that we didn’t get to hear much of her lovely demonstration or question and answer period, but everyone seemed charmed by her.
We did get a special treat though- meeting Angie’s MOM. Holy, is she adorable. She couldn’t stop talking about how proud she was of Angie, how talented she was, and how much she wanted to be like her. I guess she thought we were adorable too, since she said we were “too cute!” and bopped me on the head. My favourite part of talking to her was when she was talking about how much Angie loves her fans. Not a direct quote, but she said something along the lines of this being “love going back and forth and back and forth”. From the fans to Angie and back again. It was so true. Everything there was so excited to see her.
Angie herself, wow. She’s just so sweet in person, it just oozes out of her. Perfectly lovely! I only wish we had been able to hear her demonstation, but just talking to her made it worth it. You can tell she just ADORES her fans. I’m so glad she is getting so much attention and her site is so popular, she deserves every little bit of it.
P.S. I have learned since getting Angie’s book and finally making cakepops (Reindeer cakepops, nonetheless!) that they are tricker than one would think!
