This little Cupcake book contains recipes for almost any cupcake combination you could think of. Some things you might want to know before purchasing are: *Each cupcake recipe comes with 3 different 'variations', and these variations are counted towards the 500 total. *There are 2 sections on muffins. This didn't bother me, as I like muffins as well and there are some good muffin recipes. *Self-rising Flour is used in nearly every recipe. This is considered a 'specialty flour' in the grocery stores, and is usually more expensive that all-purpose flour. Overall, every cupcake recipe I have tried has been very good. I wish I could figure out the flour to baking soda ratio myself so I didn't have to use the self-rising flour, though. And some of the frosting recipes were too soft to use just after mixing, so I had to chill them in the fridge for a bit.

I love it! Great buy at a great price!
I just purchased this book and so far I love it! I love the variations of each of the recipes. I will always have a recipe for any occasion. The best part is even though there are three variations of each cupcake, there are virtually countless different frosting recipes as well with each of the cupcakes! Way better than using the same old buttercream frosting on every cake! Yes, there is a couple chapters on muffins - but cupcakes are named cupcakes because of their size, not because of their batter. Besides, who doesn't love great muffins!? The only downside I have found in this book is that most recipes ask for self rising flour, which isn't like all purpose flour. It costs a bit more, but when getting great cupcakes as a result, I don't mind! I would definitely reccommend this to anyone! I also love the other '500' books that are part of this series. They look great on my display shelf 'we have open storage in our kitchen, so things are kept neat and tidy' - the overall appeal is fantastic!
