4.0 out of 5 stars Hugely inspiring!, 19 July 2011
This review is from: Martha Stewart's Cupcakes (Paperback)
This is probably my favourite cupcake cookbook when I'm lacking inspiration! At over 300 pages, it's definetly the most exhaustive cupcake book I own, containing a huge selection of pretty unique recipes. Although this book is written using American cup measures, with oven temparatures in farenheit, there is a useful conversion chart on the copyright page which means you'll never be too stuck with any of the recipes (even if you don't have a cup measurer, which are easy enough to find in the UK now). I will say, though, that some of the ideas in this book are just so fussy and complex that I wouldn't bother -- but I've always managed to find some morsel of inspiration, even when I don't feel like standing in the kitchen for hours. Another thing to point out is that some of the quantities are ridiculous -- many of the recipes in this book produce 36 cupcakes, which I find is far too many -- and not all of my efforts to scale down have worked all that well.

Despite these complaints, though, this book still remains one of my most browsed. The photography is simply beautiful, and accompanies every recipe, and there's a wonderfully useful section at the end on ingredients, presentation, frostings, etc. If you're looking for a cupcake cookbook that goes beyond the meagre offerings of most, this is the book you want!
