12-year-old entrepreneur Ashley Yoshida designs and sells cake pops
She says she gets many of her design ideas from Pinterest , an online pinboard for sharing images. The “Crafty Ashley’s Cake Pops” Facebook page has dozens of photos of past pops: ones that look like watermelons, footballs, babies with pacifiers, sunflowers, dogs.
