Primrose Bakery - A Great Cupcake Book for All
on 1 August 2011
The Primrose Bakery is one of the many Gourmet Bakeries that are springing up in London. They have two shops in Primrose Hill and Covent Gardens.
And like many of the of these Bakeries they have published their own cookbook written by co-owners Martha Swift and Lisa Thomas
Although it has been billed as a book for Beginners, it is not, the recipes are "clear" and "concise". This is a great addition to any cupcake bakers library.
Split to sections, the main ones cover the Basics... Festive and Seasonal and then those for special occasions. The chapters cover both the cakes and the icings... Each cake has recommended toppings but with other suggestions as well.
And I love it, over the course of one weekend and the icing on a batch of Lemon Cupcakes I now have a new favourite staple cupcake cookbook
Clear Recipes - Builds on the Basics
A very wide range of suggestions for Icings and Frostings - Can't wait to try the Brandy Butter Cream Icing
Well written instructions
An excellent book for both beginners and experienced cupcakers
