I met Bakerella! (AKA Angie Dudley)
Everyone was able to sit down, ask her questions, take pictures, get their book signed (and point at her cute gold bow ring)! I scared her with my pointing she thought she messed up my name!
I went with Rachelle who was wearing gold bow earrings and naturally got really excited when I saw Bakerella wearing a gold bow ring… it looked a lot like this one:
I’ve had a thing for knots and bows since this post back in May of 2010.
I was able to ask Angie 2 questions:
1. Do you run your blog on your own?
Yes she does. She also has a full time job as a graphic designer… Here schedule consists of her day job Monday- Friday, baking on Saturday, Blogging on Sunday. Oh yea, she has a book, a cake pop kit, and note cards, and does book signings on the weekend. AND she just launched a new site called cakepop.com. Whoa. Talk about an amazingly creative, super busy woman! Makes me feel a little lazy!
2. Where did you come up with the name Bakerella?
Angie said, “Everyone thinks it has to do with Cinderella, but actually it comes from Barbarella.” Angie wanted an anonymous name, like Jane Doe, to bake behind. She likes Jane Fonda and briefly thought about using Jane Fondant, but did not want to limit herself to fondant only. I had never heard of Barbarella (gasp if you may, but I am not a movie buff!)
Annie couldn’t make it, so her sister saved the day…
After the book singing we walked next door to Anthropologie, another creative wonderland. Check out the use of crushed cans as a wall display.
And how cute are these monogrammed book page ornaments?
How cute are these book page trees? They would be so easy to make, cut book pages with pinking shears and stack the pages on a dowel.
Another good Christmas present for the crafty friend in your life, Design Sponge at Home!
