This cookbook is a classic. The cupcakes are fool proof, the brownies perfectly gooey, and you can't go wrong with its carrot cake guaranteed to make your stomach rumble. --The Independent

You can google recipes all day long but it's definitely better to have it in a book, right infront of you!
This isn't a big book but - it has a lot in it! 72 delicious cupcake - muffin - cookie - cake - pie and brownie concoctions.
Very well presented - clear and concise and really easy to follow. The recipes are accompanied by very nice photographs of how the finished masterpiece should look. But if it doesn't- if it's a bit wonky and all that, it'll still taste good so no worries!
I've reviewed a lot of cookbooks on here and as ever - here Is the full recipe list as presented in the book! It bugs me that we're expected to buy a cook book without even knowing what's inside. If you're in a bookshop you can have a sneaky peek so - now you can here :) . . .

I've made a few upto now and anything cheesecake in here is good to go - as a violet gin lover the lavender cupcakes are the business and I must say I'm a huge fan of the black bottom and red velvet. Delicious.
There's also a recipe in here for chocolate cola cake which I haven't made 'yet' but have tasted - omg!
So, yup. Really nice book here which would make a nice christmas pressie for a budding baker. Another cracker to add to my kitchen bookshelf.
Thumbs up from this cake face ;)
This would be a pleasant book to browse through in a waiting room.
I baked the Lemon cupcakes twice, the Banana/pecan muffins and the moist Carrot cake which tasted amazing and got compliments from everyone. To get a healthier result I would suggest reducing the amount of frosting used per recipe otherwise you will end up with the dessert being super sweet.
