Product description

This title offers witty, one-of-a-kind imaginative cupcake designs using candy and sweets from the local store. Karen Tack and Alan Richardson show how to create funny, scary, and sophisticated masterpieces, using common sweets and snack items. With these easy-to-follow techniques, even the most kitchen-challenged cooks can: raise a big-top circus cupcake tier for a child's birthday; trot out a line of confectionery 'pupcakes' for a dog fancier; serve sausage and pepperoni pizza cupcakes for April Fool's Day; and, bewitch trick-or-treaters with chilly ghost chocolate cupcakes, a white cupcake Christmas wreath, and Easter egg cupcakes. No baking skills or fancy pastry equipment is required. Spotting the familiar items in the hundreds of brilliant photos is at least half the fun.

I always do a lot of research before ordering a book and I was very excited to when this one came in the post. Not for long though. Even though it is supposed to be a best seller and a lot of people rave about it, I cannot see the big attraction of this book. Better even, I don't think there are more than a handful of recipes in it that I am willing to try out. I have a lot of books and just started my own (cup)cake business and this book is not really useful to me. I admit that there are some real cute project in there, but I am amazed of the amount of plain ugly decoration. The fact that most of the cupcakes are decorated with some kind of candy makes the cupcakes less attractive in my opinion. That at the same time could be a big advantage for people who are baking just for home and for fun.

Very glad I purchased this title. The instruction are easy to follow (and fun). I wasn't expecting such a high standard of cake design and was impressed and surprised by some of the examples. All are easily achievable and guidance is given readily. The book not only teaches but inspires.

"I have a HEAP of cake decorating books but this one has got to be my favourite. The directions and recipes are succinct and well written. It's inspirational to those who are experienced decorators and achievable for those with less experience.
The designs are eye catching and easy to achieve. They're quirky and exciting, and adults and children alike respond with smiles and laughter when presented with one.
You won't be sorry if you buy it."
