5.0 out of 5 stars Every cupcake lover should have this 22 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
My boyfriend got me this as a gift and I really love it.
The box packaging is nicely designed and nicely laid out, the book goes into detail about measurements, certain ingredients that are used for types of baking and such( which is good as american baking is done in cups and stuff).
It also gives you a re-useable piping bag with i think 5 different nozzles and different types of frosting recipes.
The recipes in the book look awesome and are different in their own ways and you also get images of each cupcake which is helpful.
The different size cupcake cases you get are so cute as well.
I love love love it. I would recommend to anyone who loves baking :)

3.0 out of 5 stars confused about weights and measures 13 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am struggling to understand the measurements in the recipes. For example, butter is listed in the recipe as 1/2 cup or 1 stick. In the conversion pages at the back of the booklet 1/2 a cup can be converted to 120 millilitres (no mention of sticks)so how do you measure butter in millilitres? I have always used weighing scales so can use grams or ounces. If the recipe was only in measured in cups then I could work out proprtions, but the same recipe also measures cream cheese in ounces. I can use the bookelt for ideas but not for a detailed recipe

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Buns 14 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The recipes in the book are very good, easy to follow and produce real tasty buns.

However the cases are very thin - they tear easily when you're trying to eat a cupcake, and they also seem to loose their color during baking.

Overall though a great introduction to fancier cup cakes, and the presentation of the package makes it a great gift.

1.0 out of 5 stars great first impression; didn't last lomg 8 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
Loved this little kit when it first arrived, read through the booklet and found some interesting ideas. Liked that the measurements had a converted to metric in the back of the book, and all the cupcake cases came in handy. However, first time I used the icing bag it split rendering it completely useless. Very disappointing as the icing bag and nozzles was one of the main reasons I purchased this set.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cases look pretty until you use them 11 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this for myself when I first started baking cupcakes. It was definitely useful for a none confident beginner, although I think the book could have done with more pictures. The biggest downside is that although the cases look very pretty pre-use, once you have used them they turn greasy, lose their colour and look altogether cheap. This results in you best efforts looking badly presented.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks better than it is 14 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback
I was given this as a gift and loved it. However, after using a few times I'm not so impressed. Whilst the cases look fab, they lose colour and look very greasy once the mix goes in. My icing bag ripped on the 3rd time I used it and I find better recipes on the internet than in the book!

This product is ok, but you'd be better shopping around first if you're after good quality.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a let down 12 April 2011
By Qcrs
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to receiving this kit but must admit to being disappointed when it arrived. The recipe book is all in American units. There is a conversion table at the back but in most cases this does not help either. I have found several web sites which offer conversions so I have hand written these in the book. The recipes are nice enough but there are much better cupcake recipe books out there. The cases are pretty but most of them are much smaller than I had anticipated although I am sure they will still get used. I would not recommend this kit as I think there are much better products out there if you buy seperately.
