Hello, Cupcake! & What's New, Cupcake? Books

These are absolutely the best cupcake books for amateur bakers.  Written by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson, the recipes are simple and the decorating ingredients can be purchased at just about any grocery or convenience store.  The designs are really cute and while they look hard, each is broken down into pretty easy steps.  Decorating the cupcakes is usually somewhat labor intensive, but the overall effect will draw rave reviews!

In this blog you will see some of the designs from the books.  From the first book, Hello, Cupcake!, I have made the spaghetti and meatballs, sleepover, and sunflower cupcakes.  My next post will be the chrysanthemum cupcakes from the new book, What's New, Cupcake?
