Overview

Two million copies later, the New York Times best-selling authors of Hello, Cupcake! and What’s New, Cupcake? are back, applying their oversized imaginations not just to cupcakes but to cookies, pies, cakes, and other treats.

Hello, Cupcake! inspired millions to become cupcake artists and launched an international sensation. Now the talented pair who started it all returns, with projects that are more hilarious, more spectacular, more awe-inspiring—and simpler than ever.

But they don’t stop at cupcakes. No sweet treat is safe from their ingenuity: refrigerator cookies, pound cakes, pie dough, cheesecakes, bar cookies, and Jell-O are all transformed into amazing and playful desserts. There’s something for everybody in this book, and every single item you need can be found in the neighborhood supermarket or convenience store.

Playing with your food has never been so exciting—or so easy.

Karen Tack and Alan Richardson have appeared on TV with Martha Stewart, Rachael Ray, and Paula Deen and have been featured many times on NBC’s Today as well as in America’s top magazines.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The authors of Hello, Cupcake! and What's New, Cupcake? Have gone wild. They had so much fun using candy and grocery snacks to decorate cupcakes that in their new book, they've jumped in headfirst to create equally imaginative cookies, pies, brownies, rice cereal treats, and cheesecake decorations. The treats are wild and often hilarious: Who among us has ever before thought of concocting a Rice Crispies skateboard or a Nacho Normal Cheesecake? Must be browsed to be truly appreciated.

Edward Ash-Milby

Library Journal
Get ready for another whimsical decorating book from Tack and Richardson (Hello, Cupcake!; What's New, Cupcake?), best-selling authors and culinary MacGyvers who transform store-bought candies, frosting, and baking mixes into stunning cupcake creations. Here, they've expanded their repertoire to include other types of desserts (e.g., a lemon cheesecake that masquerades as nachos). With just one trip to the grocery store, aspiring decorators of all ages can easily re-create treats from this fun book. [Eight-city tour; see Prepub Alert, 8/29/11.]
