Review: Hello, Cupcake

Title: Hello, Cupcake
Authors: Karen Tack & Alan Richardson
240 pages
Houghton Mifflin Co

I enjoy cupcakes! They are so compact, easy to eat, and generally delicious. What could be better than a cupcake? A really cute cupcake.

Hello, Cupcake is a fabulous book on everything you need to know to make delicious, adorable cupcakes for any occasion. You will find basic "cupcaking techniques" like how to spread frosting, designing with frosting, building with other edibles, and drawing and gluing designs for your cupcakes. The best part is, you don't have to be a professional pastry chef or own a lot of fancy utensils to make these delightful treats. Hello, Cupcake even includes directions for making a cupcake wedding cake, topped with an edible bride and groom. If a cupcake wedding cake doesn't appeal to you, how about werewolves, penguins, clowns, or sharks? These are only a few of the imaginative, delectable delights you will be able to construct with the guidance of this terrific book.

Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys baking.

I love beautiful cakes but I am hopeless at decorating, my other half on the other hand is brilliant at it, it is his secret skill.
