5.0 out of 5 stars
The recipes look as delicious as the book cover., 27 Nov 2011
This book was an impulse buy. Initially the design of the book caught my eye - with it's sparkly gold foiling on the front, and the wavy right-hand edge to all the pages. Browsing through the pages was a delight. Every page is a fun, sweetie-shop sort of design (pastel colours, spots, stars, stripes, gingham). There is a recipe at the front of the book for basic, no-fail cupcakes. Tried this out today, and they are Fab! The rest of the book has all sorts of tasty treats, including Christmas trees (see Ghostly Goul recipe) - I will be trying my hand at some of these over Christmas for my work colleagues. No specialised (ie expensive) equipment is needed as far as I have seen so far, although a 'star' nozzle & piping bag is required to make the gorgeous rose bouquet (page 83).
A few recipes from the book are:- Tropical Pineapple Cupcakes, Toffee Apple Cupcakes, Maple Pecan Cupcakes, Cream Tea Cupcakes, Gooey Chocolate & Cream Cheese Cupcakes, Chocolate & Orange Cupcakes. Oh my word, they ALL look so good!
This lovely book would make a great girlie/foodie present for someone (including yourself!)
