My thoughts:
Can you see those pictures on the cover? Don't think you can do them? Oh I think you can! Just follow the directions given by the author and it would be easy. 

Her ideas are so well put together. Plus everything is laid out well so you can attempt them yourself. Don't believe me? Check out this video:

One of these days I'm going to try out the little furry dog she has on one of her pages for my vet. They do so much for my furry spoiled babies that I thought those would be cute. They even have kitties, but since I have puppers... :) If you want to see more of what you can make check out her website on the Gallery page (HERE). That little puppy is on that page. 

I give this book 4 stars. It's something different and fun and I think the instructions are extremely easy to follow.

  1. I love these! They're adorable but they do look like they'd take some time to get together.

    1. It is broken down so well, I don't think you'd have to worry!

  2. These are super cute, but yeah, the process does sound like it's time-consuming, and I'm not sure I have the patience for it. Plus, I'd feel bad eating them afterwards. LOL Happy Friday! :)

    1. I don't think it would be too time consuming, to tell the truth. :)

  3. Time consuming but worth it. If only I was half as competent in the kitchen.

    1. Once you get your "clay" I think it would go fast.

  4. I am totally crafty but I am just not capable of this kind of stuff. Looks totally cute though :)

  5. The problem with making these cake pops is none of them would ever make it to completion because I would eat them:) Sweets never make it long in my presence, so I fear all these adorable little creatures would meet their fate far before they were able to reach their full cuteness potential:):)

    1. I'm actually not a sweet eater, but I know some that would feel the same way. LOL

    1. Actually most of it is cake, frosting and melted chocolate (the kind you get in the craft store). :) I don't remember one with fondant. ;)

  7. Ooh, this looks really creative and interesting. I don't think I'd be able to do any of these, but it would be fun to try, that's for sure. Thanks for sharing, Melissa!(:

  8. How cute! My friend makes these but not as good (shhh). I really like the little crows for Halloween. Maybe I should get my friend this book - lol.

  9. This looks so fun! I always see cake pops in bakeries and think there is no way I could ever make them on my own. I'd love to try though. If you do make them I hope you'll do a blog post, I want to see your cake pups! :-)

  11. Cute! :) But totally not my thing. I'm not "crafty" at all! :( Will have to live vicariously through your talents. :)

  12. I'm not really so crafty. I've gone through the things like scrapbooking, crocheting, making jewelry, sewing- the whole nine yards and it's really not for me. I like the idea but get frustrated. However my daughter would LOVE these! She is VERY crafty. I just hate helping her with the crafts since she's 9 and usually needs some help.

  13. Wow, my Mom would love this. She self-taught herself to do cakes and can make roses, flowers, shapes etc. She would so nail these :)

  15. I really don't have the time and patience for something like this.

  16. I have seen those around! they look like so much fun.

  17. I'm not a crafty person. The last time I attempted to make cake pops it was a disaster. I just ended up eating the cake. I would like to try again.

  18. How adorable! I had a cupcake cookbook similar to this and it is easier than it seems to make the little creatures.
