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.

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.

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!

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.

Oh, what a fab, fab book!

I bought a copy of this on impulse after lusting after it in a bookshop, partly because of the luscious presentation (and extremely kitsch photography which made my partner howl with laughter) and partly because the recipes looked good and imaginative.

Cup cakes that look like 99 cones? I can't wait to try them on my partner's kids; I'm sure they will raise my street cred immensely. I was reading this book on the bus a couple of days ago and another passenger asked me where I'd got it from as it looked so fab.

For me, Eat Me has got some of the key ingredients of a good baking book - enough "differentness" about the recipes without them being downright weird, lush pictures (although if I'm being hyper-picky, I would have liked a picture for each item) and a bit of reasonable prose to go with them.

Xanthe Milton comes across as delightfully eccentric through the pages of this book and if this is her first offering, I can't wait to see how she develops further. I can foresee a lot of baking for me in the near future...
