This cookbook contains about 80 recipes that are brilliant, surprising and stunning. She has a section of kids' recipes like Peanut Butter and Jelly and Sno Cone cupcakes, a section of fancy cupcakes, and many other sections. Lizzy does an awesome job of incorporating a variety of ingredients, fillings, ganaches, and garnishments. This cookbook contains recipes for cupcakes, but she also has other recipes on her blog for things like puppy chow, cookies, truffles, etc. As you can see from the cover picture, every single picture of every recipe is so amazing, full of color and beauty.
But be warned that once you discover these delicious and exciting recipes, it is hard to go back to plain old cupcakes ever again. I know that I never will.
My family's favorite recipes are:
Orange White Chocolate
Peanut Butter and Chocolate
Blackberry White Chocolate
Cookies and Cream
All of the recipes start with cake mixes. Although I personally prefer homemade cakes, I also see the value and convenience of using cake mixes. Cake mixes are more fail proof, and perfect for beginning bakers. When I first started using this book, I always used a cake mix. All of the favorite recipes I listed have been made multiple times exactly as written in the book and they were delicious! Now, I typically use one of my homemade cake batters, but I still use this book for the frosting recipes and flavor ideas. I have altered my standard from scratch chocolate or vanilla cake into different flavors based on the recipes in this book. So even those that don't like using cake mixes, can find great recipes and ideas in this book! The tips and guidelines are great! Perfect for helping anyone learn how to frost cupcakes. Love this book!
