Format: Paperback
The cupcake kit includes colorful, decorative cupcake papers for regular-size and mini cupcakes. It also includes a decorating bag with coupler and four different tips, and a small cookbook with a handful of recipes. No, it isn't a huge amount of stuff, but remember, this is aimed at a very specific audience--folks who want to do a bit of simple decorating and don't want to buy big sets of tips and tons of paste colors. It'll serve you well as a quick beginner intro (making it also a great gift), a quick fix if you need to make a few dozen cupcakes and don't have the equipment to do it, or a great way to learn how to make a few pretty cupcakes if you already know you can't or don't want to do the really fancy stuff!

The recipe booklet is pretty, with nice layout and photos, and includes both the basics (yellow and chocolate cupcake batters, cream cheese and chocolate frostings) and some nifty diversions. Personally I like the "hummingbird swirls," which have fruit and nuts in them, and are topped with a lovely ivory-colored cream cheese frosting. (This is the first time I've seen a cream cheese frosting that called for both cream cheese and butter, and it's really good!) Simple decorating ideas range from swirls of frosting piped from a star tip, to easy spiderweb designs, jelly bean "eggs" in a nest of coconut shavings, chocolate shavings, glazed lemon peel, and a few other easy-to-implement and delicious decorations.

It's a narrow-purpose item, but it's perfectly designed for its target audience!

i loved these cute cupcake liners though am not sure about the recipes yet.But what i was disappointed was once the cakes are baked in these cups the colour and the design in the cups become very transparent and it does not keep to it's original colour as we see before baking.Although the cup cake liners are very colourfull before baking it is not so once it's done.

I bought this kit for the paper liners. I thought they were adorable and I was happy to get so many in one set. I didn't even realize there was a book included. I opened up the kit and perused the book and there are quite a few good ideas I will save for a rainy day. I then proceeded to make the cupcakes I had already planned to make. The ink from the paper liners somehow reacted with my cupcake tins and left colored marks inside each metal cup! I've tried washing the stains out but they are there for good now. Disappointed with the liners :-(

This is a beautiful kit, I love the presentation, the overall design is so beautiful, the only thing is that the book is too short it has very few recipes, and doesnt have that many pics, but as a whole it's a beautiful and useful thing. Got it for my girlfriend because she loves baking cupcakes. So, recommended. specially for the liners and tools.

The kit is really great. I'm using it and loving it.
The recipes are easy and simple, and, important, they work just fine.
The liners are just beautiful.

The decorating tips are plastic, which might not be bad, but metal tips create more sharply defined lines. I returned it not because of a product defect but because the box arrived crushed and couldn't be given as a gift.

Sorry to have to say this, but there are no large size liners in this package. I put one of them in my jumbo size muffin pan and it does not fit at all. Way too small.

This was nothing more than a waste of good money.

If you want large size/jumbo liners for muffins and cupcakes, this is definitely not the product you want.
