When I first got the book, I wasn't sure if it was what I was looking for, but after trying some recipes I knew that it was a good addition to my cookbook collection.

I have a lot of dessert cookbooks already including a few specifically on cupcakes (500 Cupcakes; Cupcakes from the Cake Doctor) so I wasn't looking for another. But once I flipped thru Cupcakes by Shelly Kaldunski, I knew I wanted it. It is organized intuitively and has many beautiful, full-page photos. Best of all, it includes recipes for tasty creations I had not imagined such as chai & honey cupcakes with honey whipped cream, grapefruit & buttermilk cupcakes, lime meringue cupcakes, banana caramel cupcakes, hazelnut- brown butter cupcakes, and MANY more.

Chapters include All About Cupcakes (baking basics); Basic Cupcakes (vanilla, chocolate, yellow, mocha, gingerbread, etc.); Fruit & Nut Cupcakes (triple berry, lemon blueberry crunch, sour cherry-almond, rum raisin, banana caramel, etc.); Chocolate Cupcakes (black forest, mexican chocolate, red velvet, black & white, etc.); Special Occasion Cupcakes (tres leches, tiramisu, jumbo malted chocolate chip, Christmas peppermint, Easter egg nest, etc.); Frostings, Fillings & Finishes (buttercream, cream cheese with variations, meringue, marshmallow, vanilla glaze, caramel drizzle, etc.), and Creative Cupcaking (2 pages of additional suggestions for combining cupcakes, frostings and garnishes).

30 finished cupcakes are pictured in full page color photos. Additional smaller color photos are included in the All About Cupcakes chapter to demonstrate techniques as well as garnishes.

Since this book covers the basics as well as many original creations, it would be an excellent gift for a beginning baker or someone with more baking experience.

I can't wait to start baking!

My review is based on the the 3 recipes I've tried so far. The frostings in particular were 5 stars in taste & texture, probably from all the butter. The Malt- flavored buttercream was so exceptional I was sampling the last bits off the spatula. The cakes, on other hand while tasty, were all a little dry & disappointing--I'm going to try them again later with some modifications.
If you're into easy & simple, the ones I made weren't and used a lot of utencils, pots and bowls when, maybe the cupcake or frosting could have been put together with fewer if you thought about what you are doing.
I plan to try out a couple more, but watch the moisture content, so they don't come out dry.

If you like making cupcakes this book is great. There are many variations and ideas and this book is simple for a new baker. The ingredients are available in any grocery store and the directions are easy to follow. The mixes and frostings do require a lot of beating and I would suggest a good stand mixer opposed to a hand mixer. This book will inspire you to make your own combinations.
For the folks that found the cake recipes dry, they are probably overbaking. I bake ALL cupcakes at 350 for 16-18 minutes (as soon as a toothpick comes out clean). Not the 20+ minutes suggested in the book.

I received this book as a gift. I have tried 3 recipes so far and am not terribly impressed. The frosting is VERY good. The cupcakes themselves, however, just don't quite measure up. All of the cupcakes I've made have been a little too dense and not the soft texture that one usually likes in a cake. I'd say they're a touch on the dry side, though not terribly so; just a little too dense and heavy. The flavors, however, have been quite good. I am not a beginner baker, and have made lots of great cake recipes from other books, and since it's the same problem each time, I have to fault the book. If it weren't for the fact that I bake a lot and have therefore made a lot of superior cakes, I would probably be satisfied with this book due to it's many good points, but the recipes just don't measure up as written.

The variety of recipes in this book made me choose it over some other cupcake cookbooks -- and I'm glad I made that decision. So far I've made four cupcakes and three of the frostings and I'm happy with the results. The cupcakes all turned out so moist and delicious. And the frostings were the perfect match.

The buttercream is a meringue style and I've had the best results with it of any of the similar buttercream recipes I've tried. I think my husband would love it if I just used the Gooey Chocolate Glaze on every cupcake I made, but there are too many others to try still.

I can definitely see using this as my go-to cupcake cookbook!

I am an experienced home baker, and was excited to try some new cupcake recipes. The author's connection with Martha Stewart led me to believe the recipes would lead to a wonderful product...So far, I have tried only 2 recipes in this book, but will not waste my time on any more. Not when there are other wonderful (and rather foolproof) cupcake recipes like Ina Garten's coconut cupcake recipe. The chocolate cupcake, which the author promises will be soft and moist, is neither, even when one reduces the baking time and does not overmix the batter. The Tres Leches recipe also is disappointing, but for different reasons. I am suspicious as to whether the recipes in this book have been thoroughly tested.
