Book Review of ‘Cupcakes’ by Peggy Porschen
This book will change your perception of cupcakes and bring Peggy Porschen into your home like never before.
What I say:
This is s a super sweet book.
It’s small in size , around 6″ by 6″ which makes it ideal as a stocking filler, but despite it’s size it contains 25 cake recipes, plus frostings and finishes!!
The photography is just beautiful and I love the simple layout. None of these recipes are basic; all contain complex and interesting flavours, but the instructions are easy to understand.
My only criticism would be that there are only three frosting recipes. I ice most of my cakes with buttercream and tend to do it by eye/taste. I’d love to know how the Queen of Cupcakes makes it.
All in all, this is a quaint little book of high end cupcake recipes that will really impress. I’m particularly taken with strawberry and champagne and the cosmo cupcakes. Yum!
