I stumbled upon Lizzy's blog[...] probably a year ago. It is now the only website that I use to find dessert recipes. I have made Lizzy's cupcakes dozens of times and they are always a huge hit. Lizzy is a college student who creates her own recipes and always has a story to go along with them. I have been anticipating this cookbook's release for months and was not disappointed at all.
This cookbook contains about 80 recipes that are brilliant, surprising and stunning. She has a section of kids' recipes like Peanut Butter and Jelly and Sno Cone cupcakes, a section of fancy cupcakes, and many other sections. Lizzy does an awesome job of incorporating a variety of ingredients, fillings, ganaches, and garnishments. This cookbook contains recipes for cupcakes, but she also has other recipes on her blog for things like puppy chow, cookies, truffles, etc. As you can see from the cover picture, every single picture of every recipe is so amazing, full of color and beauty.
But be warned that once you discover these delicious and exciting recipes, it is hard to go back to plain old cupcakes ever again. I know that I never will.
