Quirky novelty: good gift for teenager
on 16 November 2011
With a name like 10,000 cupcakes I feared a telephone directory size tome might arrive. I was amused instead to discover a little book the size of a large paperback novel with a spiral spine and its pages all chopped into 3 sections; sprinkle, buttercream, cupcake base.
My maths isn't good enough to tell you if 10,000 is an accurate number of combinations (and presumably some would be combinations you'd rather avoid) and personally I think this is more of a novelty than a serious cookery book. Mind you, how many serious cupcake cookery books are there... It's an ideal Christmas gift for a teenager keen to do some baking but otherwise not something I'd find space for on my crowded shelves.
The writer, Susanna Tee is a well established baking writer so you can have faith they'll be good recipes, the format however is a bit distracting.
