Kristie Tracey y has taken cake on a stick to a new level with her line of celebri­tyy heads, in­clud­ing g lu­mi­nar­ies such as Car­rie Bick­more ( be­low).

THE Cake Pop Queen, Kristie Tracey, has turned cake pops into an even finer art by cre­at­ing celebrity head cake pops in­clud­ing The

Pro­ject host Car­rie Bick­more and Duff Gold­man, the leg­endary cake king of Charm City Cakes in Bal­ti­more.

The Ersk­ine Park res­i­dent’s de­li­cious balls of good­ness have catered for the likes of Kyle and Jackie O, Chan­nel 9’s To­day, Stu­dio

10, The Morn­ing Show, The Aus­tralian Bridal Expo, de­signer Karen Millen and even Pink’s daugh­ter, Wil­low.

Af­ter just four years and count­less hours watch­ing YouTube tu­to­ri­als and study­ing mag­a­zine recipes, Mrs Tracey said she had mas­tered the art of cake-pop bak­ing.

At first, Mrs Tracey said it took her an en­tire day to cre­ate one cake pop, but now she is pump­ing them out to fill or­ders of 200 a week. “My first job was ac­tu­ally in a bak­ery, but I was in an of­fice job af­ter hav­ing my four chil­dren,” she said. “Now I’ve cre­ated my fifth baby.” Mrs Tracey sold 20 copies of her new ebook Let

Them Eat Cake Pops just one week af­ter it launched.

She has also started teach­ing cake pop classes in Arn­dell Park. To book a spot at the next class in Septem­ber, visit The Cake Pop Queen Face­book page.
