Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The second entry in a new series, this heavily illustrated little book showcases 32 cupcake recipes from 16 chefs, caterers, and other "contributing designers." The decorations are the thing, many of which are built on one of three basic cupcake recipes included here. The results range from understated Spring Pastels to the rather garish Mardi Gras Party Cakes. All are shown in color photographs, and there are numerous step-by-step photos with each recipe and in the introduction to ingredients, equipment, and techniques. For larger baking collections.
