Editorial Reviews

Review

“There’s a reason people stand in line for hours at their favorite cupcake shops. But why bother, when you can learn the sisters’ secrets to baking and decorating cupcakes (and other goodies) just like the pros?” (USA Today)

Praise for Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne:“Moist, tasty, and expertly iced, the popular cupcake creations of sisters Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne of Georgetown Cupcake are baked works of art.” (Better Homes & Gardens)

“Katherine and Sophie make masterpieces in the kitchen, creating cupcake works of art that are not only beautiful, but over-the-top delicious. I always try to incorporate them into all my events. Their cupcakes are unique and deliciously divine!” (Sharon Stacks, star event planner and lifestyle expert)

“I can’t say enough good things about this cupcakery.” (Frank Bruni, New York Times)

From the Back Cover

Celebrate with cupcakes!

Birthdays, cocktail parties, weddings, bridal showers, picnics, or low-key get-togethers with your friends—all occasions should be topped off with a cupcake! In this delectable book, sisters and stars of the hit TLC series DC Cupcakes Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne serve up more than fifty recipes for every celebratory occasion.

Including step-by-step cupcake decorating instructions with photos, guides for cupcake table presentations, and tips for throwing the best parties, Sweet Celebrations is the perfect cookbook for the home baker and entertainer looking to wow friends and family. Katherine and Sophie go above and beyond the ordinary cupcake call of duty with innovative recipes, including frozen cupcake pops for summer picnics, baby blue and pink "gender reveal" cupcakes for baby showers, and recipes for non-cupcake treats such as their grandmother's Greek butter cookies and their all-time favorite milk shakes.

Katherine and Sophie also share charming personal memories of holidays and special events while giving readers the tools to plan their next cupcake-filled special occasion!

I have to say I am a recent fan who has become hooked on the show DC cupcakes. I bought their first book and loved it, and it seems like the sisters took a lot of the comments on the first book (the chief complaint being that there was no recipe list) and improved upon their second book. I read the book in one day from start to finish and the only downside, I wanted to start baking right away! The book is full of new recipes, with a few repeats on techniques thrown in for good measure. What appeals to me is that the ingrediants lists don't seem overwhelming, when there are more than 25 ingrediants in a recipe, I immediatley get turned off. Everything seems well written and has lots of pictures to show the decorating techniques. , I've already made plans to bake the banana chocolate chip monkey cupcakes and I really want to try to the cherry tartlets too. All in all, I say this is a definate must have if you love cupcakes.

I love baking and am really into cupcakes. This show gives me a lot of inspiration for flavors and decorations. It may not be 100% 'real', but I'm okay with that. It's a great show about baking, sprinkled with little bits of humor. Really enjoyable, never fails to put me in a good mood.

I have been to the Georgetown store and love their cupcakes. I was excited to order this book. It is as much a story on the sisters lives as it is a cookbook. I wanted the recipes. What recipes are in this book are a bit disappointing too. There are some cupcake recipes but just as many fancy desserts.

I love these two ladies and think their cupcake ideas are amazing. However, I did think their first book was 10 times better than this one. I use their first one all the time. This one is a good one for getting to know the ladies better.

I really liked this book, I have read it completely, didn't give it 5 stars yet because I haven't had the time to try the recipes out and see how they come out. But from what I've read I think baking will go along smoothly.

The recipes in this book, compared to their first book (which I also have), are right on. Obviously, tried and true by you. Thanks, Georgetown Cupcake. My kids and I are enjoying your cupcakes more often now, thanks to the recipes. :)

Your love for your family and your craft are obviously the reasons for your success! We are your biggest fans! More power to both of you!

The recipes are so easy and delicious. The buttercream frosting is the best I have ever tasted. I love this book.
