3.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy if you already have their cookbook! 15 Sep 2010
The recipes are great - just a shame that I'd baked them all before, when I bought their cookbook! The bun and muffin recipes are all the same as the original book, just without the biscuit, brownie and pie recipes... Don't buy this one thinking that the recipes are new, as they don't include a single new one... I had hoped that it was a book with new cakes and savouries, but I'm not sending it back - I am sure I can think of several friends who deserve this book for a present!

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite book of all!!! 11 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book with some reservations. Quite a lot of reviews said wrong measurements etc had been given, resulting in poor cakes. However, this appears to have been rectified. There is so much I have yet to try from this book...but I can't seem to get away from making the cupcakes!!! My children, family and work colleagues rave about them! The Lemon Cupcakes are absolutely to die for!!!! Not so keen on the Rocky Road...far too much chocolate in it for me...although the kids loved it ;-) I can't recommend this book enough...particularly for those who bake for school fairs. The Vanilla Cupcakes are ridiculously quick and easy to make and the frosting can be made in varying colours with a limitless variety of sprinkles etc!!!! JUST BUY IT!! :-D

If you are just starting out making cupcakes this is the book for you. It contains easy step recipes with simple decoration ideas. If you want something more fancy on top of your cupcake you wont find it in this book

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect gift for Cupcake fans 31 Aug 2010
This book is a great introduction into the world of baking cupcakes.With it's mouth watering photographs and tips for the frosting. I bought this for my daughter after she became a fan of the cupcakes from visiting the various outlets. The book is a great starting point from which to delve into baking. After making several batches of the "Black bottom cupcakes" I can say that they are an accurate interpretation. it is essential that the recipes are followed to the letter, as you will not get the same results. Followed correctly the recipes provide great results.

1.0 out of 5 stars RECIPES ARE BAD. 12 April 2013
I was excited to buy this book. When I saw both this one and the small one, I had to buy them. Big mistake. I love cupcakes and muffins and am not bad at all just using random recipes from the net. So, I started with the banana one. The cupcakes didn't raise, the textures were odd. Now, I contacted the bakery through facebook to ask about tips or maybe an advise and realized that I wasn't the only one experiencing problems. So, in a tone that seemed defensive, Hummingbird would answer the same to us all: go to this page were there are plenty of answers for those having troubles. Well, I tried 4 of the recipes. And what a waste of money (ingredients in Norway are extra expensive) and time. Not to mention de disappointment because when you have guests and they expect a good dessert after dinner (I am known for savory desserts) and you have rock hard cupcakes that are too bad to be served. So, in total, about 30 something pounds to the garbage. Don't buy these books, they are terrible. There is something wrong with the recipes. I have the now, as decoration, because the cover is pretty.
