About the Author

Megan Seling is a writer and baking enthusiast. Although she grew up in a family that loved making pies, cookies, and cakes—her great-grandma was known as the neighborhood "Cookie Lady"—Megan's own youthful kitchen exploits usually involved doctoring up boxed cake mixes or eating frosting straight out of the can.

In the winter of 2005, Megan accepted a friend's dare and attempted to bake all 116 cookie recipes in Martha Stewart's Holiday Cookies magazine. Megan made eighty different batches of cookies that winter, and the project sparked a sincere interest in baking. Since then she's happily spent many hours in the kitchen, using the same KitchenAid mixer that got her through the "Cookie Challenge," and has mixed, measured, and burned her fingers while inventing her own delicious baked goods for co-workers, family, and friends ("This is the best cupcake ever!" is a statement she's heard several times over).

Megan has worked at The Stranger, a weekly paper in Seattle (www.thestranger.com), for over ten years, writing about music, food, and movies, and she also hosts a weekly local music radio show on KNDD 107.7 the End. She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband and cat.

The idea for Bake It in a Cupcake began with a successful experiment combining Cadbury Creme Eggs from a 50% off sale with a cupcake and frosting and after accolades from family and friends, took off from there. I think it's a very fun concept where you get double (or more) the goodness you'd normally find in a cupcake, all in one dessert. Like incorporating Lemon Bars in a vanilla cupcake and frosting them with raspberry frosting, yum!

The way these multiple treats in one are made is generally by making the item for the "filling" and then spooning cupcake batter in tins, adding the baked good in the middle and then putting more cupcake batter on top and baking til done. Frosting is frequently used to top it off.

Many of the recipes in Bake It in a Cupcake have photos that show how fun the treats look when sliced in half. I was impressed with the photo for (long name alert!) Strawberry Shortcake-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting, so I decided that would be the first one I would try. It took more steps to make it than a simple cupcake, but on the other hand, it's a lot more than just a cupcake! It's more like a much more complex dessert in cupcake form. I was excited to have my family try them, plus they looked so pretty with the strawberry filled scones tucked inside a chocolate cupcake, topped with frosting and more strawberries. It was beautifully layered, just like strawberry shortcake, but with the extra ease of having it in a cupcake. I'm looking forward to making the Gingerbread House Cupcakes (with Gingerbread Men inside) for the holidays, as well as so many other yummy treats from Bake It in a Cupcake.

I've been following Megan's blog Bake It in a Cake for quite some time, so when I saw she was coming out with a cupcake recipe book, I was absolutely thrilled. Her recipes are so creative and this book was exactly what I was looking for. No other cupcake recipe book out there has such fun, unique recipes that are all sure to please everyone who tries the finished product. I can't recommend this book enough - it is the best recipe book I own! It also inspires you to come up with your own stuffed or filled cupcake recipes...you really can bake anything into a little cupcake! :)

I was very excited to download on my kindle fire. Great ideas. I tried the twix brownies, very yummy. I was disappointed there weren't many photos of these great recipes. The blog has a tons of vivid pics. Might be better off checking out the blog to see what you are going to create.

First of all, I love the concept of this book. However, it needs a bit more proof reading as there are obvious errors. It is essential to make a test batch and/or take a stab at adjusting on the fly before making these to feed a group. For instance, the Strawberry Shortcake Filled cupcakes calls for mini-scones rolled out 1" thick and then baked. The book notes they will puff up. Then one is told to put 2 Tbsps of cupcake batter in a regular sized muffin pan, top with half a scone, add chopped strawberries, top with the other half scone and another Tbsp batter. This will allegedly fill the muffin pan about 3/4 full.

Unfortunately, a regular muffin pan's indentations are just over an inch deep. The scone itself is a least an inch thick-- there is no way to fit all that other stuff in there! They're tasty after some portion tweaking, though. Alternatively, the recipe as written works pretty well in one of those giant muffin pans if you want cupcakes that will each feed two people. :-)

Bottom line, I'm glad to have this in my collection but it badly needs a published errata list.
