2012: The year of Push-Up Pops!

Push-Up Pops by Courtney Dial WhitmoreThis coming year will bring lots of excitement for Pizzazzerie! Push-Up Pops (available for pre-order now) will hit shelves and ship to doorsteps on March 1st! Not long after, in August 2012, my second book will be released (stay tuned for more info on it, but it’s all about candy).

With 2012 around the corner, I thought I’d share another sample page from the book (for previous info on it – see this post here). Thank you to each and every one of you who has emailed, written, called, tweeted, facebooked, etc about your excitement for the book! From the giveaways on your blogs to the posts about it’s coming release, it has all been so very appreciated.
