Being an avid baker, I was given this cookbook as a gift from a coworker, and I couldn't be more disappointed in the actual taste of these recipes. I've now tried four or five of them, and each batch has been inedible. I think I have LITERALLY thrown away every single batch (which is probably the only reason I am even writing this review). The first ones I tried, just a vanilla cupcake, I thought I had maybe done something wrong, so I made them AGAIN and the results were just as unfavorable. The cupcakes are dry and flavorless. Even though a lot of the recipes look really good, I'm afraid to waste any more of my time and money trying out recipes that I could end up tossing in the garbage.

that the humble cupcake could be elevated to an art form. This is one of the most visually stunning (prepare to salivate copiously) collections of recipes I have ever seen. The recipes range from Grandma's favorites to wildly unusual inventions. Clearly Ms. Wagman is an artist, chemist and gourmet with an impressive dose of creative genius thrown in. I particularly appreciate the "cupcake tips" that are generously peppered throughout the book. There's nothing like learning how to do something from a pro. The recipes are presented concisely and clearly with magnificent color photographs of the finished products. There is something here for every occasion and every audience including a chapter of kid's cupcakes. Cupcake books are everywhere nowadays. This one is by far the best one I've seen. Your parties will never be the same.

This new cupcake book by Gail Wagman shows that one is only bound by the limits of their imagination when it comes to creating recipes for a specific area of baking, in this case - cupcakes. Wagman's use of themes, design, color and artistic concepts are unlike anything I've seen. I love cookbooks and am aware that cupcakes are all the rage currently and the market is flooded with books on this subject. I look at all of them and haven't seen anything that can compare with her exquisite presentation, unique ideas, clear descriptions and easy to follow recipes. And the photographs do it all justice. This book should become the gold standard in this area and should be owned by all cooks and pastry chefs whether professionals or beginners.

I am an avid baker, a food blogger, more specifically a cupcake blogger- I have tried three recipes from this cookbook and I have been disappointed with all of them. All came out way too heavy & dense, and crumbly. I prefer a cupcake that is light and fluffy with a velvety texture. First I made the almond ones with a pear baked in the middle- dense, heavy and odd flavor kind of like sweet corn bread. Then I did the creme brulee cupcakes which call for adding store-bought caramel sauce to the batter and then making a caramel sauce for the topping? The caramel topping/frosting was so incredibly sweet, way too sweet! and it was just too much sweetness to cover the entire top of the cupcake in it, maybe If I had done a normal buttercream frosting and just drizzled a little bit of the caramel over the top it would have been ok, except the cupcake had the same texture issues as the last one. Then I made the brownie cupcakes, and while the frosting was very good the cupcakes were horrible. The recipe made 12 cupcakes and called for a teaspoon of salt in the batter! a whole teaspoon, I really knew better I don't why I din't modify it. Everyone complained that they were way too salty. I thought they were too salty and too dry as well. I'm done with this book. I recommend these cookbooks: Crazy about Cupcakes, Martha Stewart's Cupcakes, and Cakelove if you like a soft tender cake!

Format: Paperback
I find it hard to believe that anyone tested these recipes before printing this book. I found myself saying many times while baking these cupcakes, "Well this really doesn't seem right. But they claim to be cupcake experts so I'll give it a try." There were multiple editing errors (such as ingredients being listed in the ingredient column, but never mentioned in the actual recipe). The cupcakes tasted bad. I'm so upset that I wasted my money on the ingredients.

Don't waste your money on this cupcake book. If the recipes seem somewhat simple, they turn out bad. I didn't even attempt the crazy complicated recipes because they were labor intensive and called for expensive and/or exotic ingredients.

Format: Paperback
The photos are beautiful, the instructions are very user-friendly, and the portions are small (a dozen instead of 36+ cupcakes) and therefore good for experimenting. The downside is if you don't like alcohol, it rules out most of the "After Dinner" cupcakes and a few in other sections (almost 30 recipes include some form of alcohol). If you do like wine, beer, liqueurs and spirits in general, you'll probably love this book! Also, the "Gourmet Cupcakes" and the "Cupcakes Plus" section looked intimidating for an inexperienced baker. Overall, though, there are so many recipes to try, with such beautiful photos, I'd say it is a good buy. :)

I was so excited when I bought this book, but after making two recipes I clearly wasted my money. The recipes sound yummy but the cupcakes come out dry and have no taste to them. These recipes clearly were not tested and the author should be disappointed in this book. I really enjoy making cupcakes and would love to find a cupcake book with tested recipes so I know they will turn out good.
