If you are looking for inspiration, thie cover of this book will suffice. I often make cupcakes for kids' events, and got a few new ideas.

However, Ms Crespo violates rule number one for excellent food books: the cupcakes pictured are not always made according to the directions she gives.

I've already run across two examples. First, the Panda cupcakes (and other cupcakes with a white frosting base) are not made with vanilla buttercream frosting as stated. This frosting is cream-to-light-yellow in color since it is made with yellow butter and brown vanilla extract. The crisply white frosting in the photos is simply not vanilla buttercream. Second, the directions for the Crop Circle cupcakes calls for the cupcake to be frosted entirely, then scraped away. It does not take a cake expert to see that the example in the photo is not made that way--the frosting was piped on in a circular pattern, not scraped away at all.

These issues aren't so egregious, but undermine the basic premise of the book (which is that these are cupcakes that you, too, can make at home). I would recommend that the interested buyer simply look at the examples shown on the cover for inspiration, and use their own ingenuity, rather than purchase the book.

I fell in love with this book when I had only seen a brief booklet of its photos. How can one resist a cupcake that's shaped like a flower, with a bee pollinating it? Or the koala and panda cupcakes, which are my absolute favorites. I don't even bake, but I still adore this book, and am happy to report that a friend made the panda and koala cupcakes for my birthday and they were just as adorable and delicious as they looked. Clare Crespo is a true food genius and I'd recommend this book for kids and adults of all ages. If you are ever feeling down, one look at Hey There, Cupcake! is sure to cheer you up. The photos and recipes are creative and cheerful and truly do the delicous treat that is the cupcake justice. Eat up!

`Hey There, Cupcake!' by culinary writer, Clare Crespo answers the burning question of where can I find a good cupcake recipe when I need one. This is actually the second cupcake book I am reviewing and I am happy to have both; however, if asked, I will definitely recommend Ms. Crespo's opus over `The Artful Cupcake' by Marcianne Miller.

First and foremost is the fact that Ms. Crespo's book is simply more fun, and I suspect that is what cupcakes are all about, aside from being, in Ina Garten's words `a delivery system for icing'. Both books are a bit light on recipes for the `cake' half of the cupcake team. Neither has a recipe of, for example, a carrot cake cupcake. I have also just noticed that neither has an index, although you will probably not really miss it, unless you happen to be looking for a carrot cake cupcake recipe.

Ms. Miller is less a culinary writer than a `crafts' writer, as I pointed out in detail in my review of her book. Oddly, `The Artful Cupcake' has a lot more general information on cupcake tools, general techniques, and ingredients. Ms. Miller handles the writing on baking and the cupcake designs are actually done by visiting crafts people. So, Ms. Miller is more of an editor than a true author. Ms. Crespo, on the other hand, seems to have done all the writing and cupcake designing chores on her book. As proclaimed by her subtitle, '35 Yummy Fun Cupcake Recipes for All Occasions', I repeat that Ms. Crespo's book is simply more fun. Among other things, this means it is a much better book for younger bakers. In fact, while Clare does not push this point too much, there is a sense about the book that it was written for a young audience, without actually talking down to the reader.

Aside from fun, one excellent advantage of Ms.

Format: Hardcover
"Hey There Cupcake!" is not so much a cookbook as it a book filled with instructions on how to make cupcakes special. But boy does it ever succeed in what it sets off to do.

Author Claire Crespo starts off with some helpful tips for making cupcakes, and then shares some basic recipes - 10 for cupcakes and 6 for frosting.

Then the fun REALLY begins. The rest of the book is filled with 35 specialty cakes designed to make it fun to serve these traditional kid favorite desserts. Crespo presents innovative ways to decorate the cakes, using your basic cupcake ingredients, a few extras here and there, and some imagination.

Some of her innovative and stylish work include "Asprin Cupcakes" (basic cupcakes with a fondant topping with a crease down the middle); "Pina Colada cupcakes" (cupcakes stacked three high, separated by whipped cream, in a pina colada glass); "Crop Circle cupcakes (chocolate cupcakes decorated with a fanned out green frosting, and complemented with a tiny plastic tractor and cow); and my favorite, "Bleeding Hearts cupcakes" (basic cupcakes filled with raspberry jelly, cut into an irregular shape and decorated to look like a heart with red frosting as a background and blue veins stretching across it).

This is the kind of book that can be enjoyed by anyone interested in cake decorating, in making cakes and pies, but most especially, folks and their children. The Baseball cupcakes would be particularly an easy cake for kids to help frost and make for a kids party, and some of the others would be great for a whole group of kids to make at such a party.
