I have a number of books from this Hamlyn series and they are generally very good. I mainly bake cupcakes for charity events and you soon get to know which flavours sell. The following are always popular - honey & banana cakes; pecan & caramel; lemon & lime drizzle; coffee & walnut; pink rose (rosewater in the mix and pink mascarpone frosting). There are also some pretty cakes for children's parties decorated with, for example, jelly beans or some really cute puppies formed from readymade icing, pirate faces, ladybirds, etc.. At the end of the book there are cupcakes for occasions such as Christmas and weddings. The book also includes a few savoury cupcakes although the only ones I like are the cheese & chive version.

Given how cheap these little books are, you really can't go far wrong. The recipes are straightforward and the results of the recipes I have tried have been reliable.

Was really pleased with this. Love the different varieties of cupcakes,I never knew there were so many variations. The photos are really good and inspire you to want to make the cupcake. The recipes are simple to follow and most of the ingredients are basic and you would have in your cupboard. Am going to buy this for a friend's Mother as I'm sure like me she will love looking through and trying some of the variations.
Excellent value for money.

I'm not sure if I just have an odd copy but the page numbers in the index don't always refer to the correct recipes on the actual pages! Some are correct but not all. Only just received it so haven't tried any recipes yet so these could be great, but could be a bit frustrating if the names in the index aren't quite right!

Purchased for a gift and was much liked.

Nice images of the cakes!

Not sure how the cakes turned out however! - but am sure they were tasty!
