    The Best Cupcake Book I've Seen

    I love this cookbook! I've seen other cupcake books that have a few good decorating ideas mixed in with mediocre ones, or that have a lot of cute ideas but don't offer new flavors beyond the basic vanilla, yellow, or chocolate cake mixes. This one is abundant in both inspiration for decorating and a variety of flavors.



    Just about every recipe is accompanied by a beautiful color photograph to inspire creativity. The book starts with four basic cake recipes including white, chocolate, yellow, and lemon, plus five base icing recipes. These all serve as the base for creating dozens of flavors and textures for cupcakes that are anything but ordinary.



    I made the chocolate chip cheesecake swirl cupcakes (p. 44) and my family enjoyed them. I used a boxed devil's food cake mix instead of the recipe in the book. Other flavored cupcakes I will try include Gingerbread with Cream Cheese Icing, Key Lime, Eggnog Poppyseed, Cookies 'n Cream, Butterscotch with Salty Caramel icing, Lemon-Blueberry, and Mocha Caramel Cappuccino. The Apple-Fig Bread Pudding Cupcakes with Maple Sauce also caught my eye. So did the Strawberry Colada Cupcakes. I could go on and on.



    There are wonderful ideas for just about every holiday and occasion including children's birthdays, cupcakes baked in ice cream cones, floral themes, weddings and showers, and animal themes that are adorable. The lamb cupcake shown on the cover is perfect for Easter, as is another one inside the book featuring a bunny with marshmallow ears.



    Anyone who loves cupcakes and enjoys decorating them will absolutely be inspired by this book!

    Delicious and gorgeous cupcakes!

    Big Book of Cupcakes is a great resource for making cupcakes in cute, clever and classic ways. It's a thick book filled with more than 175 recipes with photos for each one. And, if you don't bake much from scratch, you'll be pleased to know that every recipe also explains how to create it from a boxed cake mix.

    The Big Book of Cupcakes gives the background on cupcakes whose popularity started with children's parties, progressing to the current ones which are clearly designed for adult palates, with flavors like Mango Jalapeno. Four basic cake recipes and five frosting recipes are included as a jumping-off point for the cupcakes in the book and they even teach you how to frost cupcakes to get different effects. I loved the idea of mixing yogurt with whipped topping for frosting or topping frosted cupcakes with tiny, cute cookies or candies. Betty Crocker Big Book of Cupcakes also includes recipes by six baking bloggers who each contributed excellent cupcake suggestions.

    The Simply Delicious chapter offers a range of scrumptious cupcakes -- from classics like Red Velvet (with marshmallow buttercream) to the more current flavors like Orange Soda, or Ginger and Peach. Bake Sale Favorites include Root Beer Float cupcakes, baked in ice cream cones and topped with straws, and Watermelon Slice cupcakes, plus many more best-sellers for your next bake sale. There are lots of fun ideas in the Kid's Party area, like Mini Cupcake Banana Splits or the adorable Campfire S'mores cupcakes, which have toasted mini-marshmallows on pretzel sticks cooking over a red and yellow hard candy "fire".

    The Soft Pink Bunny cupcake and 4th of July Fireworks Towers are a couple of the treats in the Holiday area. There are so many gorgeous ideas, including the Hanukkah dreidels made from caramels and kisses, and the wreath made of poinsettia topped cupcakes. My favorite holiday idea was the Gingerbread Train made out of regular and mini cupcakes. There are also cupcakes for Special Occasions, with delights like Tres Leches cupcakes or a cupcake that look like a delicious cup of hot chocolate with a pretzel handle and marshmallows on top.

    The recipes in the Big Book of Cupcakes are all beautiful, yet are actually very do-able, using easily accessed ingredients and simple techniques.

    Incredibly versatile, easy to follow

    This cupcake cookbook is a great tool for enthusiasts and bakers. Unlike other books, there are four basic recipes on which all other flavors are based. This makes it very easy to use a boxed mix if you're in a pinch, or want to experiment without using a lot of raw ingredients. The frostings are also based on two or three basics. The variety of flavors and decorating ideas make this book useful and fun. Flavors range from traditional (red velvet, butter pecan) to exotic (spicy dark chocolate, Fat Elvis). There is a recipe and decorating idea for every occasion, and basic decorating instructions are found in with the basic frosting recipes. I highly recommend Betty Crocker's "The Big Book of Cupcakes."

    i think the book has great ideas and flavor combinations however

    i think the book has great ideas and flavor combinations however every recipe i make the cake is dense and dry. i have to keep reminding myself to add oil to each recipe like they call for on the boxed recipes.
