3.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous cakes, quantities not accurate, 3 April 2010
This review is from: Eat Me!: The Stupendous, Self-Raising World of Cupcakes and Bakes According to Cookie Girl (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.

I used muffin cases instead of cup cake cases and they were glorious.

I love this book, lots of great recipes. I too had a few troubles, have made the Jack Daniels cupcakes twice and both times they sunk in the middle! Still some different great recipes!
