Martha Stewart's Cupcakes: 175 Inspired Ideas for Everyone's Favorite Treat by Martha Stewart Living Magazine Editors

The perfect cupcake for every occasion.

Swirled and sprinkled, dipped and glazed, or otherwise fancifully decorated, cupcakes are the treats that make everyone smile. They are the star attraction for special days, such as birthdays, showers, and holidays, as well as perfect everyday goodies. In Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes, the editors of Martha Stewart Living share 175 ideas for simple to spectacular creations–with cakes, frostings, fillings, toppings, and embellishments that can be mixed and matched to produce just the right cupcake for any occasion. Alongside traditional favorites like yellow buttermilk cupcakes swirled with fluffy vanilla frosting and devil’s food cupcakes crowned with rich, dark chocolate buttercream, there are also sweet surprises such as peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, dainty delights like tiny almond-cherry tea cakes, and festive showstoppers topped with marizpan ladybugs or candy clowns.

The book features cupcakes for everyone, every season, and every event: Celebrations (monogram heart cupcakes perfect for an elegant wedding); Birthdays (starfish-on-the-beach cupcakes sure to be a hit at children’s parties); Holidays (gumdrop candy ghouls and goblins ideal for Halloween revelers); and Any Day (red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for a picnic, or caramel-filled mini chocolate cakes for grown-up gatherings).

In singular Martha Stewart style, the pages are both stunning in design–with a photograph of each finished treat–and brimming with helpful how-to information, from step-by-step photographs for decorating techniques to ideas for packaging and presenting your cupcakes. Whether for any day or special days, the treats in Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes will delight one and all.

The wide range of difficulties and flavors makes this cupcake cookbook perfect for anyone. From the one bowl chocolate cupcake to the multi-step special occasion recipes this book has it all! I use the meringue butter cream frosting recipe on just about all of my desserts now. It works great on a birthday cake, cupcake, or even for dipping a cookie. It is so light and fluffy it could replace Cool Whip. The vast number of ideas and designs in this book will equip you with a special cupcake for every occasion, and the simple directions make even the most complicated looking design simple. This is a must have for any kitchen.

This is a wonderful cupcake book. There is a picture of every cupcake and it helps to inspire you to try new things. I have made only a couple of the actual recipes so far and they have been fantastic. It is nice to have many different icing and cupcake recipes all in one place. They only thing I don't like is the quantities that some of the recipes make are kind of crazy. How often will you need 32 cupcakes at one time?

Overall, I have enjoyed this cookbook immensely. The banana cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes, and maple cupcakes are pure heaven! (Was disappointed in the consistency of the devil's food cupcake, though.)The frosting recipes are easy to follow and unbelievably delicious. This cookbook is chock-full of ingenious ideas for decorating cupcakes for every imaginable occasion. The glossy photographs are a feast for the senses and will inspire you to entertain. A terrific resource guide is included in the appendix as well. Makes a great gift!

A wonderful book full of cupcakes galore! Beautifully photographed, with recipes that you want to read, study, and finally pick one to make. The instructions are well written, easy to follow. There are a lot of basic baking instructions and background information as well. If you are new to baking, don't feel overwhelmed. Everything you need to surprise friends and family with great cupcakes is right here. Sections of the book include "Swirled and Sprinkled", "Dipped and Glazed", and "Holidays". We found that we could spend so much time looking and reading that we almost didn't leave time for baking! We are especially fond of the "Strawberry Cupcakes". Cupcakes equal fun and Martha Stewart's Cupcakes has plenty!

I love this book!! I've made the carrot cake cupcakes, the red velvet, and the banana pecan cupcakes so far and each has turned out great! The red velvet had the most delicious taste and were moist without being greasy (which I've experienced with some other red velvet recipes). I highly recommend this book.

this is a must have book. if you love baking or are just starting out this is a book for you. this is a fun book to learn all new cupcakes. this was my first real cupcake book and i've learned so much from it. there are simple cupcakes and then there are the harder multiple step ones. over all they are all good. when i make cupcakes from this book they don't last long in my house : )

Great collection of easy-to-fancy cupcakes to wow your family, friends and co-workers! Not for waist-watching, but hey, its dessert, what do you expect?

I love this book, I'm not sure why I waited so long to get it! Many of the recipes are more advanced and some require ingredients you have to get in a specialty store. I would recommend it for more advanced bakers, although she does give good step by step directions. There are many complex flavor profiles in both the cupcakes and the frostings. One of the first recipes that I tried was the Salted Carmel Chocolate mini-cakes and I received rave reviews from my family. I look forward to trying more of the recipes. The pictures are beautiful! As usual, Martha delivers a great cookbook.

This has become one of my favorite cookbooks. The pictures are beautiful, and the recipes are easy and yummy to boot! Haven't had bad feedback yet on any of the cupcake recipes I've made out of this book. Such fun flavor combinations too! This has a permanent spot amongst my easy-to-reach recipe books!!

I love this, its taught me so much
piratemom More than 1 year ago
I got this as a present and returned it in exchange for another book. I love cup cakes, but feel that if you have a good basic cookbook/baking book this one is overkill. After that 10th recipe you have it all and it's just a matter of changing the color of frosting or adding cocoanut instead of hazelnut etc. It is also bound as a paperback which makes it hard to prop open during baking.

This book is fun to read as well as make one of the cupcakes. Makes a really cute birthday party. The ideas are worth the price of the book.

DJNJC More than 1 year ago
This book is a lot of fun. The recipes are easy to follow and creative. There are simple as well as advanced recipes so it is good for everyone. Most of the recipes ingredients are easy to make/find so it's not a headache running around trying to get to a specialty store. Wonderful book overall, I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a bit of pizzaz in the cupcake department!

If you have a craving for cupcakes, start here. A great selection of all types, flavors and occasions, organized in typical Martha fashion. It gets your creativity going, but the only drawback is that it is very difficult to choose which one to bake first!
