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!
