She's a girl genius

I'll never forget the first time I saw Bakerella's website. My best friend was planning on making Elmo cake pops for Logan's 2nd birthday and I asked to see the inspiration. So I'm looking through her website and start to feel excited and a little overwhelmed. I knew at that moment that I wanted to do something great, too. I didn't know what it was, but I felt inspired. And that's the same feeling that I get every time we feature someone on The Everygirl.

It isn't about being the next big thing or making lots of money. I'd rather make a living and love my job than have lots of money and hate going to work everyday. This is about following your passion. I have always been the girl that wants to do it all. And no -- I do not expect to master everything. I just want to have lots of different experiences. I want to see the world. I've painted (and destroyed) a dresser, moved to Chicago, and bought a kitchen torch. Not a bad start. 

The real reason for this post? We're featuring Angie Dudley of Bakerella on The Everygirl today and I couldn't be more excited. She's even giving away a cake pop kit and signed cake pop book! 

Now who's ready to bake some cake pops!?

  12. I totally agree! I teach dance (part time) at a local dance studio and I love it. I don't 'bring home the bacon,' but I absolutely love my girls and I love teaching.

  15. Oh dear! I've given up sugar for 30 days and you have to feature Bakerella!? Noooooo! hehe, kidding, of course. I have an addiction to cake pops. Seriously, it's a problem, hence the avoiding sugar for 30 days. I'm still going to enter the give-away - I'm not crazy! :)
