    Excellent and fun book!!!

    If you like to decorate cakes or make beautiful and fun desserts, this book is probably the best one I have ever purchased. I love to make birthday cakes as a hobby for friends and family that request them. Directions are easy and the cupcakes are very creative and beautiful. There are a wide variety of cupcake designs for any occasion and will bring a smile to the recipients face. I HIGHLY recommend this - you won't be disappointed!!!

    Hello, Cupcake!

    I have to say that this book is wonderful! I have a beautiful 5 year old granddaughter that went to a party where they were serving "fancy fun cupcakes" and she kept asking when are we going to make some too. Well I had no idea where or how to do this, so I took a quick trip to Barnes & Noble and found this wonderful book! And it truly is wonderful. The instruction is easy and the illustrations are amazing. Now we have a wonderful time choosing a design from the book, running to the store for the goodies, then baking and creating to our hearts content! She was one proud little girl when she presented some of these wonderful cupcakes at her preschool graduation! I highly recommend this book for parents and grandparents wanting to create those special moments.

    Cupcake-tactic!

    There were a bunch of great, simple and creative ideas to make in this book! I wanted to make them all!! I highly recommend getting this book, but buy the ACTUAL book. I found it confusing to understand in nook form( because the pages were spread out)

    Amazing!

    This book is absolutely fantastic and a must have for anyone who has children. Karen's creations look so sophisticated and yet are so capable to do at any age. Even my 7 year old likes doing these. My family has now given me the 'dessert' task at all gatherings - and I love it!!

    Highly recommend

    I bought this book for my Daughter. She loves it! She is a Girl Scout Brownie leader and this book helps her to make wonderful treats for the girls. She and her 8 year old have fun together making the cupcakes in the book. The pictures are great and the instructions are easy to follow.

    One of the best cupcake decorating books ever. I received this book as a gift when I started by cupcake decorating business and I absolutely love it. The illustrations are excellent and the directions are very thorough. There are recipes at the back of the book and a list of needed supplies in the front. A must-have for cupcakers.

    This is the cutest book! It contains cupcake designs that look so professional and, not to mention ADORABLE. :) I have done quite a few of the designs in the book, and used the frosting and batter mix recipes, and they all turned out great and were very easy to make! This cute little cupcake book is a must have!

    Who knew!

    Who knew you can do this much with cupcakes. These recipes are so simple- don't let the pictures of the outstanding cupcakes fool you- the people who thought of these cool looks and recipes just had an imagination. Must, must buy!
