5.0 out of 5 stars Buy Me! 15 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover
After seeing Xanthe Milton demonstrate her BeetRose cupcakes on TV, I rushed to the laptop and purchased this book straight-away.

The first thing I have to comment on is how beautiful this book looks, from the shocking pink cover to the photos inside (including 'Cookie Girl' dressed in various guises: Red Riding Hood, Alice, Snow White); it's a real piece of eye-candy. The cakes and biscuits look both delicious and tempting and will have you heading towards the kitchen in no time.

The second thing are the recipes. The book is divided into seasons and finishes with a Parties section. You think you've seen every flavour of cupcake until you pick up this book; it's filled with original creations such as French Toast cupcakes, Jack Daniels cupcakes and 99 Cones with Flakes. The recipes are clear and concise and with a section dedicated to Baking Basics at the front of this book, even the most novice of baker can confidently make these gorgeous treats. Most importantly of all, the recipes work! Sounds stupid, but I purchased the Hummingbird Bakery book and the recipes obviously hadn't been tested in a domestic oven or the quanitites were just scaled down from their commercial recipes, they just didn't translate well for the home cook. Xanthe Milton has obviously pain-stakingly made sure that these recipes work and they do,they are completely achievable.

Overall this book has been a real delight. I have tried some of the recipes and they were not only a joy to make (the smells wafting threw the house certainly had my husband wandering into the kitchen to investigate!) but they were so well received by my friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, fabulous recipes! 19 Mar 2010
By Nicola F (Nic) TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I was so excited when this book arrived- like the other reviewer, having seen Xanthe on TV and being impressed by her 'beetrose cupcakes' I could hardly wait to try some of her ideas out in my own kitchen and had high hopes that this book would be a hit in my house.

This book has most certainly exceeded all my expectations and is what a cupcake cookbook should be (try saying that really fast!). Until now I've been fairly used to struggling (somewhat) with the Hummingbird Bakery book, which has somewhat wonky measurements, despite the overall results being fairly impressive- but I'm pleased to report that the 'Eat Me' recipes that I've tried so far have all turned out *perfectly.* They actually make me look like an acomplished baker, despite my inaptitude with the general cake decorating overall!

My favourite? It's a hard choice between the beetrose cupcakes (wonderfully inventive and just so pretty, despite my icing disaster) and the blueberry clouds, which are just so deliciously moreish.

The instructions are all easy to follow and there's scrumptious, beautiful pictures throughout to demonstrate the end result, not to mention charming, whimsical depictions of Xanthe's childhood and where her love of baking stems from. The pages just ooze girlish sophistication and are split into 'seasons' with cakes and cookies for every occaision from christmas to halloween- but never fear, it isn't too gimmicky, it just comes across as well thought out and charming.

I think this would make a really wonderful present for a friend, mum, sister or auntie that has an interest in dabbling in the kitchen, or even for a novice baker who would like somewhere simple and pretty to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eat Me! 16 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is the most fabulous book of baking! With so many cupcake or cookie recipes the proportions don't actually work, the finished result bears no resemblance to the photo you're staring at in bemusment and the taste is either over sweet or under developed! These recipes are so easy to follow, rewarded by the most gorgeous results and the joie de vivre in the writing is such that you know Cookie Girl loves what she does. So I'd say buy and then buy another for a friend. Nothing says love more than this type of sugar!

3.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous cakes, quantities not accurate 3 April 2010
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book when it first came out and couldn't wait to get started, the recipes are very innovative with lots of creative recipes I haven't seen before from other cupcake recipes; such as Jack Daniel's and Pina Colada cupcakes!! I made the French toast cupcakes which were absolutely wonderful but the quantities were overstated and they overflowed a little, also for the icing I thought again the quantities were a bit much so instead followed the quantities from the hummingbird bakery book which I feel gave a better result. Also, tried the easter cupcakes where again the quantities were wrong and I in fact made almost double of the initial 12, and again the icing needed tweaking(340g of butter seemed excessive I would suggest using between 50-100g instead.
Overall if you love baking cakes I would definitely recommend this book, just be prepared to trial and error with the ingredients.

2.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance 24 Mar 2011
By Ellebee
Format:Hardcover
I was very excited about starting the recipes in this book as they all looked amazing. However, I made the vanilla cupcakes last night and the quantity is way off! Even after I had made the batter I could tell it wasn't going to fill 12 muffin cases - I just about got 8. The icing was far too thick to pipe as well. I'm hoping this was a one off but the book seems to me more focussed on looking good than ensuring accuracy in the recipes. I wonder how many people who posted glowing, 5 star reviews have actually made anything from the book or were just blinded by how it looks?? This is the first cookbook I've bought (and I have a lot!) that I've been so disappointed with.
