I would recommend this book to any and every one with even the slightest interest in cupcakes. Whether you consider yourself a hard-core cupcake fanatic, or you are simply looking for something interesting to add to your kid’s next birthday party, this book can help you. This is filled, cover to cover, with some of the cutest ideas for cupcake decoration I've seen in a long time. One thing I loved and this book was the more out-there cupcakes. I mean, we’ve all seen cookbook filled with little frilly pink cupcakes. It’s been done before. What this book offers, instead, is tons of new, creative cupcakes. Where else can you find an entire section dedicated to cupcakes for April Fool’s Day? For that reason alone I was skeptical of this chapter, but it turned out to be one of my favorites, simply because the prank cupcakes are so well designed that they could actually fool someone at first glance!
All of that being said, the book’s best feature in my opinion is make-ability. These are cupcakes that truly anyone can pull off. No professional baking or decorating gear is required; all projects can be completed using only delicious household items. Mirages are created using candy, sprinkles, even donut holes (for the bodies of lots of animals), not high end, expensive materials that can only be found by touring every craft and/or baking store within a forty mile range of your house!
Overall a fantastic book that every house should own, and every friend should be given for their birthday!
There's nothing in here that you can't get on the net (plus more!) Don't come here for cupcake recipes as they are very limited and basic. Choose Martha Stewart's cupcake book for better recipes and variety. This is a cute, colorful book no doubt but it's sitting on my shelf collecting dust. Once you've skimmed it, the novelty is over. Now she has a sequel book "What's New Cupcake?" Same goes for this sequel.
This book is so much fun. Even looking through the pages you will spend an hour or two just marveling at the things that people can do with cupcakes. It is so unbelievably fun and easy to use. It is so easy that anyone can do it. You don't need any special tools or special skills for that matter all it takes is few simple things that you already have around the house. You can find all of the ingredients at the corner drug store. I have tried several of the cupcakes … more
The ideas and tips in this book are amazing! When I looked through it, many other creative cupcake ideas came to me. If you are interested in baking eccentric cupcakes, this book would be a great addition to your cookbook collection.
I don't know about anyone else but I really think this book is cute, yes you can find the recipies anywhere else but I think the presentation of this book is one of the most important parts of it. This is a really fun book to use with children and you can quickly skin through the book looking at all of the pictures deciding which creation you might do next! I think all the fun pictures are what really makes this book great! Its such a happy book! I just think this … more
