From the Back Cover

Cupcakes make the perfect building blocks for fun and creative shaped cakes. With this book, you can make a purple hippo, spotted puppy, flip flops, lollipops, pink princess crown, dump truck, little monsters, hedgehog, and much more. No special pans are required-just cupcakes. And cupcake cakes are perfect for parties and crowds because the cake can be easily pulled apart for individual cupcake servings. It's a whole new phase of the cupcake craze!

Fun creative way to serve cupcakes. I doubt like doing just a cake because not everyone likes the same cake. Cupcakes everyone gets what they like in fun designs. I used white, yellow, and chocolate cupcakes for the "ice cream cone" design on the cover. The frosting part was strawberry, raspberry, and cherry all filled. The "cone" I did the same cake flavors but used chocolate truffle frosting, whipped chocolate ganache frosting, chocolate buttercream and vanilla frosting tinted brown for the few who didn't like chocolate. All were so happy. It looked great!

This book is adorable and the cakes are so easy to make! They are perfect for parties for kids. I especially loved the hedgehog, dump truck, nest of bluebirds, seahorse, and funny little monsters. When you think about it, is there anyone who's life wouldn't be happier if they had a purple hippo cake?

My SIL has made quite a few of these for my kids already. The only thing I would change in the layout is to take a photo of the 'cakes' UNFROSTED as well. Making the finished product would be so much easier!

This book is full of fun ideas for cupcake cakes for many different occasions. The photos are really cute, and the projects are easy to make. I made the owl cake, substituting the cookies on the eyes for some that were easier for me to find, and everyone at the party I served it at thought it was adorable. They were so impressed that I had a hard time convincing them to eat it. Fortunately, with cupcake cakes it's easy to take it apart and pass it around. This book is great for anyone who needs an easy, fun idea to add a little whimsy to cake.

love the cakes, but the directions are a little sketchy. I wanted it for ideas so it was fine for that, but one cake it said took 15 cupcakes and it clearly took more like 18, makes a difference when you are baking. Also it does not give you any idea the volume of frosting it might take to handle one of these cakes and that makes it hard to color a batch of frosting, because you never get the color the same twice

In Cupcake Cakes they suggest using cupcakes as "building blocks" to make shaped cakes without using special baking pans. There are recipes for frostings that would work well, as well as decorating tips, like how to color frosting black without having to use so much food coloring. One great thing about making cupcake cakes is that kids can really get involved, since drawing frosting lines or simple shapes onto the cupcakes is all the decorating abilities that are required.

There are twenty five delightful ideas, for all kinds of different occasions. The fun ice cream cone cake from the cover would work well for an child's or adult's birthday. While the Cute Caterpillar cake would be fun to serve at a birthday party with an Eric Carle "Very Hungry Caterpillar" theme. I thought the soccer ball cupcake cake would be an excellent after game treat, and no clean-up! A perfect wizard's hat made of cupcakes would be an ideal dessert for a viewing of a popular wizard movie:)

There are also cute animal cakes, like a hippo, a puppy, and a hedgehog, plus several more. Sparkly snowflakes with sugar crystals make a lovely presentation for a Winter celebration. My favorite was the Flower Bouquet cupcake cake. Single color (easy!) mini cupcakes a transformed into a set of flowers complete with green licorice stems and green cupcake leaves. Adorable! There are even bees buzzing around them on mini chocolate chip flight paths.

Cupcake Cakes is the perfect way to make super simple, yet high impact cakes for all of your fun times!

I guess I was expecting more from this book. It is more geared to a beginner cake decorator. It is a nice book, just not for me.
