What makes this seemingly simple concept so special? Well, as the author points out, most people love cupcakes. They are versatile, portable, and easy to create. You can make cupcakes as simple or as creative as you would like. And this great book of over 135 recipes can help in any situation. Need 2 dozen cupcakes for the class bake sale and want the cupcakes to look incredible? Want to impress your dinner guests but not spend hours in the kitchen? Want to wow your kids with a special treat after school? You can make up a batch of cupcakes that will accomplish all of these tasks.
I loved the fact that most of the recipes start with a box of cake mix, and ingredients that I keep in my pantry and refrigerator. Some of my family's favorites include: Red Velvet Cupcakes, Coconut Snowballs, Caramel Spiced Apple Cupcakes, Fresh Raspberry Cream Cakes, and the Marshmallow Frosting.
The author has 2 other books that are also worth a try, "The Cake Mix Doctor" and "The Dinner Doctor". Enjoy!
I am not sure why everyone is so upset about the lack of color photos. It is pretty easy to visualize what the cupcakes will look like (well, maybe not the over-the-top children's ones), and almost none of the cookbooks I use regularly (Joy of Cooking, Fannie Farmer, Mark Bittman, James Beard) have extensive or color photos.
One major gripe: Byrn's 2 Cake Doctor books have a photo of every single recipe. Cupcake Doctor contains relatively few...this was a huge disappointment to me as I like to have a mental picture of what my results should look like. I don't think I will use this book quite as much as the other two for that very reason.
On the other hand, the recipes are creative and tasty, as usual. The capuccino chip cupcakes are outstanding. I look forward to trying more of the recipes for my daughter's birthday parties, school bake sales, etc.
I found typos in the book, which always makes me wonder if a book was thrown together too quickly. We made the carrot cake muffins with cinnamon streudel mix, and quite honestly, I thought they were disgusting. The recipe was easy to follow - maybe we just picked a lame one. The description/intro to the recipe didn't match the recipe/method very well, and it was assumed that the mix came with a brown sugar/streudel topping, which mine didn't.
I've heard better reviews about the Cake Mix Doctor books, so maybe I'll try those. The Cupcake Mix book is a great idea, but so far, I'm not raving about it.

I did not really care for this book. If I had know all the recipes were made with a box mix, I would not have got it. Not a big fan.Published 11 months ago by Marcy Porter Abd'allah
