The next “big thing”

GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!

*******************************************************************************

And the winners are……….

If you are one of the winners, please email me at tara@theshakybaker.com with your mailing address so I can get these mailed out to you!

Thank you to everyone who left a comment!  Hope your weekend is sweet!

So, did you know that these are the new rage in cookie decorating?

Thanks to Callye at Sweet SugarBelle they are.

These babies make the best icing bag holders.  The BEST.  And for $1, you can’t beat the price.  (Sorry, Wilton).

Problem is, they seem to be selling out everywhere before bakers can buy them.  But lucky for you guys, I live in a small town where people here don’t know the wonders of the $1 popcycle maker.  So I went down today and cleaned out the shelf.  Bought every one they had.  The cashier thought I’d lost my mind.  If only she knew how right she was.

Now, I need to share them with you.  Want one?

I am going to send 2 packs to four (4) different people.  INTERNATIONAL INCLUDED!!  If you want them, just leave a comment ON THIS POST.  I will randomly select four people to win.  Simple as that.

But ya gotta act fast. I’m going to mail them out this Friday, so I’m only leaving it open until Thursday, May 3rd (yes, tomorrow!) until 9pm CST.  Then I will draw 4 winners and drop them in the mail.  I have to act fast, because you really need these.  Your cookies could depend on it.

Make sure you leave contact information so I can get in touch with you if you win!

Good luck!  And I hope the rest of your week is sweet!

    • Not sure why my post came up with sakop2 as my user name as I haven’t had that in a few years. My current contact info is Laura ljpokas@gmail.com Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  1. I definitely could use these!!! A great idea buy Callye and a wonderful idea for a giveaway by you!!!!

  2. Leave it to Callye to think of this. So simple! I would love to have these. And when I’m not decorating, my 2 and 3 year old boys could benefit from the actual purpose (well, so would I — who am I kidding, I love a popsicle as much as the next toddler)

  3. What a great idea – I always try and prop my bags on things and they are forever falling over. Thanks for clueing me in – if I don’t win this giveaway, at least I know what to do now! Thx

  4. OH, pick me!!! I haven’t been able to find them anywhere in the small town I live in! I have one left over from a previous year and it is fantastic!!!!

  5. I keep forgetting to stop by the dollar store and pick up some of these. Hopefully I’ll just win some. :0) Love your site and I really do like your new name and logo.

  6. I saw Callye’s post and thought it was a brilliant idea too but its moving into winter here in Australia and can’t find these ANYWHERE have been searching for ages!! Please pick me!!

  7. I just read the post on these! What a great idea! Would love to have some, since I don’t currently have anything to hold my icing bags.

  8. awesome! i’d love to have one!! just getting into decorating and my bags make the hugest messes when i leave them to fall over. :(

  9. That really is a “big thing” considering how many times I’m trying to catch my icing bags before they fall…. :)

  10. OOOH! What a fantastic idea!!! I always have icing all over my counter from leaking out of the bag! I haven’t seen these anywhere in Vegas, but then again I haven’t really looked.

  11. I could definately use a couple of those nice round popsicle makers. I check my dollar store and they only had odd shaped ones and they were too small! Love the blog btw!

  12. How cool! Thanks for hosting this giveaway….I hope I win.. You are right, my cookies depend in these!!!

  13. They have been disappearing rapidly from the shelves in the south… Probably not for icing bag holders considering the temperature has been in the 90’s the past week.

  14. Just what I need for my 40th birthday!!! Multiple possibilities here; before they hit my cake table I could see these with some frozen vodka and orange. I’ll feel all girly and reminiscent, and most importantly COMPLETELY distracted from the ‘numbers’ on the day!!

  15. I have seen them in the store and never thought of them for decorating use. That is thinking outside the box (or the icing rack)! Great idea!

  16. Saw this idea on Facebook. Went looking but couldn’t find them. Would love some for the cookies I’m making for my grand kids

  17. I would love to win. I have been looking all over for them since I heard what you could use them for. Thanks

  18. The are so hard to find in Australia! Apparently people here don’t make their own ice blocks (Popsicles).

  19. What a great idea! Thanks for the tip………….I always have piping bags lying around the bench, easily solved now !! lol

  20. Awesome!! What a great way to keep the tips moist and off the table! Love it! Thanks so much for hosting this fun giveaway!!!!!

  21. Would love this! I’ve seen some out there but always nearly the same price as the wilton holder, never for $1.

  22. Such a fabulous idea and whats more, will keep my table more organised and neat ( ;-) ). Love it!!!! I would soo like to win one….fingers crossed x

  23. ooh yes PLEASE – i bought one yesterday here in the UK and when i got it home i realised that the bottoms were curved and rounded to a point – like a closed umbrella and so won’t stand up to use as i intended for my icing bags !!!!!! :(

  24. INTERNATIONAL!!! Spain is the perfect place then. I love it, imposible to get it here for just 1€.

  25. OH, I’d love to try them out. I have the Wilton bag holder but I don’t like it at all. LOL Should have known there was a much simpler less expensive way to do it. LOL

  26. I’ve been looking for those, can’t seem to find any anywhere. Great idea and its quick and easy to use.

  27. Hello; Yes same story here in Windsor Ont Canada as well. Unable to locate them anywhere. I do see different styles but not useable for my piping bags. I have loved the idea ever since I saw Sugarbelle use them. I am always looking for new ideas from the great cookie decorators I follow and aspire to be. That is very nice of you to offer this great prize. Thanks you.

  28. Who thought of this genius idea anyway? On a personal note, since I had to scroll down FOREVER to be able to post, my chances of winning are a snowball’s chance in you know where but I tried anyway! :) Good luck everyone!

  29. That’s a great idea and I would love to win, mainly because this is the very first giveaway that I’ve seen that’s open to Canadian bakers. Thanks for the opportunity! carol.s_@hotmail.com

  30. I am in beautiful and sunny Trinidad they would do double duty i thisa weather. Please pick me ….Thanks

  31. Hello from sunny & humid Singapore :) these popsicle would be great for me to keep my work area clean & tidy!!

  32. Love sweet sugar belle’s ideas, tips and inspiration. This idea is amazing. Thank you for offering this great competition.

  33. I am Sister Teresa’s Custom Sugar Cookies. (no I am not a nun). Was doing cookies last night, wish I had had them, then. Hope I win!
