Cupcakes Year-Round offers a platter full of delicious, grown-up recipes-Black Forest Cherry Cupcakes, Hot Buttered Rum Cakes, Carrot and Zucchini Cakes, and many more-along with kid-friendly PB & J's, Snowballs, and Spelling Bee Alphabet Cakes.
In addition to 50 tasty recipes, organized by season (Easter Egg Nests for spring, Reindeer Snacks for winter), the book includes helpful information on the basics of making cupcakes, from mixing to icing, as well as instructions for piping techniques and tips on customizing cupcakes with syrups, fillings, and decorations.

I used this book to my make cupcakes from scratch for the first time ever. They were great! So moist and much better than the mix kind. The information provided other than recipes is extremely useful. She details what exactly happens when you use baking soda or baking powder in a recipe, also explains how to use different piping methods to designs. This is a really great book with so many ideas that it gets the imagination really flowing! I recommend this for anybody looking for great ideas to decorate their cupcakes as well as those tired of the plain old vanilla cupcake.
¿Cupcakes Year-Round¿ was a gift to myself, as I love sweets! Who doesn¿t like cupcakes?! Sara Neumeier is a food writer, food stylist and recipe developer. She works with the Martha Stewart kingdom, and it is evident when you see the gorgeous color photographs of her food styling. The recipes are easy-to-follow. There are cupcake recipe and decorating ideas for each season. Plus, Neumeier helps explains the reason behind baking techniques, such as sifting flour. I feel these tips are magnificent at helping educate the new baker to understand what is going on in the kitchen! Also, the book can be set up as an easel for easier use while cooking! That was a cute idea. I, recently, made her Easter cupcakes for my son and his friends. They loved them. This cookbook is fun, easy and tasty. Her recipes are great for adults and children.
Sara is an admired food writer and absolutely delicous cook. Her book makes fabulous cupcakes possible for everyone across the land. This book is a must for every cook's home, think of all those bakesales for kids, you'll have new ideas!! And dinner parties and birthday parties. It's wonderful.
