Multiple batches of the authors' recipe for vanilla cupcakes -- topped with super-sugary chocolate buttercream or vanilla buttercream frostings -- delighted crowds, including office guinea pigs, er, colleagues. Another sugar high: unusual cupcake varieties such as Earl Grey and Amaretto. --Washington Post, Express Night Out, May 19, 2010
Highly recommended for libraries that are looking for an advanced cupcake book--chefs will find plenty of party ideas. --Library Journal, starred review

It arrived pretty quickly. This book offers some basic staple recipes for cupcakes (such as the chocolate cupcake, strawberry cupcake, lemon cupcake) as well as a lot of ideas for decorating and combining flavors of cupcakes and frosting. I also like that this book gives some basic tips and guidelines on how to make a good batter and how to frost a cupcake. This is a great gift idea for a novice baker.
It is true that Americans tend to prefer light fluffy and airy cakes, where English folk might find this type of cake too light or artificial feeling. Prized cakes in England are generally more dense and 'cakey' -- and not as sweet usually, allowing the icing to balance out the cake.
So this book has delicious cakes if you like your cakes to be full of cake and not air. :) I love them, the pictures are beautiful and the instructions very clear.
Hope that helps!
The fancier flavours don't appeal to me and to include in the Easter section something which is basically a cornflake cake, is ridiculous.
The layer cake section contains a recipe for a most indulgent chocolate cake which is divine. Beware though you will need giant mixing bowls and cake tins and I had to split each cake in 2 so ended up with a 4 layer cake. The vanilla cake in this section is quite disgusting and you'd be better off making a Mary Berry Victoria sandwich. Didn't try the lemon so can't vouch for that one.
As I said, hit and miss.
I'm not going to give up just yet, I would like to try something else before rendering my final judgement on Primrose recipes. I really hope the next ones work better.
