Format: Paperback
As with the first book in this series (Hello Cupcake), this book is pretty and fun, but ultimately disappointing as a cookery book. There are no recipes that do not start with 'take a shop bought cake mix ....'. I can understand this if the book was aimed at 'quick cupackes' or similar, but since most of the designs will take an age to complete, it seems a shame to 'save' ten minutes using a pre-mix rather than fresh ingredients.

The ideas are fun and I enjoyed looking at them. The book is extremely US centric though, and I found it tedious to translate the ingredients into local equivalents. This is necessary for almost all ingredients except the flour!

In summary: Buy this book for fun ideas and inspiration only. Do not buy it if you want recipe ideas or prefer to follow instructions to the letter (that will only be possible in the US, with a significant $$ injection into ingredients).

P.S. If you are after a real cupcake recipe book I recommend 'Cupcakes: Over 80 Delicious Recipes for All Occasions and Tastes (Spiral-bound)' by Sue McMahon. Lots of fab recipes, in an easy to use book.

GOOD POINTS
1) Great ideas
2) Good read, if you like reading cookbooks. Photos are good too.

BAD POINTS
1) Almost all the recipes call for sweets that you can't get in the UK. However, that just gives more impetus to think creatively, so can't dock a star for that.
2) The reason I have docked a star is the lack of recipes for frosting/icing. There are a few recipes at the back, but this is based entirely on US shop-bought frosting. If you are spending hours piping shuttlecock feathers out of white chocolate, or rolling out caramels and cutting into intricate shapes, it seems daft to not spend five minutes weighing out some butter and icing sugar etc...

On the whole though, it is a great little book.

There are really brilliant designs in here - the haunted house and rats and cheese were very well received at our Halloween celebrations. However, much of the recipe information has to be translated from American baking language into British, and some of the ingredients can be difficult to source in the UK - even finding equivalents was difficult.

This book is brilliant! Easy to follow instructions and pictures to follow.

I don't understand the bad reviews on here, they are right, a lot of the sweets used are American, but its an American book so what do you expect??
There are loads of alternatives that can be brought in the UK , just use your imagination.

There are some lovely ideas in the book, and I have been able to make most of the cupcakes.

Really great buy!

This book has some great ideas and good photography, but isn't groundbreaking. There's a lot of repetition but it doesn't always expand on an idea, just re-uses it. The biscuits that hang on the edge of a teacup are brilliant.

A lovely book full of great ideas and instructions. However, as it is written by an American author most of the ingredients used cannot be sourced in this country so the same results cannot be obtained. A real shame as I was looking forward to creating some masterpiecesWhat's New, Cupcake?: Ingeniously Simple Designs for Every Occasion

This book has 227 pages of amazing little ideas that are great for my cupcake-loving friend. It arrived in super-quick time, as promised and in great condition. It's a great birthday present or just something to have around the house. I highly recommend it.

This was a wonderful surprise for my sister. Her cupcakes have made her the envy of every Mum as all the kids have ranked her as 'Ultra Cool'!
The book looked like so much fun I had to buy a copy for myself. It is a Must Buy! The best part is it can be used anywhere in the world as the recipes are based on ready made cake mixes. Therefore, no worrying about the different flours! Perfect activity for rainy days as some of the decorating is a little involved but a lot of fun and rewarding once complete. Also worth picking up the first book Hello, Cupcake. Apart from being fun to say the title, the number of ingenious are just too delicious to miss out on.
