They include project ideas for everything from celebrations to birthdays, holidays to everyday. Not to mention that this book is filled with helpful how-to information and ideas for variations on several different recipes. They also include cute ideas on how to decorate your cupcake creations and then package them.

All of her recipes are sure please everyone from the beginning baker to the old time pro. Included on each page is a picture of the final product, so novice bakers can see how Martha herself would have it.

Whether a Martha Stewart fan, or just a cupcake lover, this book is a must have for any baker.
