About the Author
In the winter of 2005, Megan accepted a friend's dare and attempted to bake all 116 cookie recipes in Martha Stewart's Holiday Cookies magazine. Megan made eighty different batches of cookies that winter, and the project sparked a sincere interest in baking. Since then she's happily spent many hours in the kitchen, using the same KitchenAid mixer that got her through the "Cookie Challenge," and has mixed, measured, and burned her fingers while inventing her own delicious baked goods for co-workers, family, and friends ("This is the best cupcake ever!" is a statement she's heard several times over).
Megan has worked at The Stranger, a weekly paper in Seattle (www.thestranger.com), for over ten years, writing about music, food, and movies, and she also hosts a weekly local music radio show on KNDD 107.7 the End. She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband and cat.

The way these multiple treats in one are made is generally by making the item for the "filling" and then spooning cupcake batter in tins, adding the baked good in the middle and then putting more cupcake batter on top and baking til done. Frosting is frequently used to top it off.
Many of the recipes in Bake It in a Cupcake have photos that show how fun the treats look when sliced in half. I was impressed with the photo for (long name alert!) Strawberry Shortcake-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting, so I decided that would be the first one I would try. It took more steps to make it than a simple cupcake, but on the other hand, it's a lot more than just a cupcake! It's more like a much more complex dessert in cupcake form. I was excited to have my family try them, plus they looked so pretty with the strawberry filled scones tucked inside a chocolate cupcake, topped with frosting and more strawberries. It was beautifully layered, just like strawberry shortcake, but with the extra ease of having it in a cupcake. I'm looking forward to making the Gingerbread House Cupcakes (with Gingerbread Men inside) for the holidays, as well as so many other yummy treats from Bake It in a Cupcake.
However, I was very disappointed when it came. =( It had very few pictures, most recipes had none, and the recipes were very long. Some of this was the writer just being to wordy but a lot was just long recipes period. I kept looking over it thinking I'd find some wonderful saving grace. It didn't happen. I returned it for a refund & did receive one promptly. =(
I would recommend "Simply Sweet Color Cakes" ISBN # 9780848743048. Beautiful book, pages, pictures, & recipes are simple & yummy! The pics. alone are drool worthy! =)
