Posted by SalesianLibrary on May 31, 2010

As soon as I saw this book I knew I…I mean the Library had to have it! I’ve tried a few of Martha Stewarts recipes and they always turn out delicious. This cookbook ‘Martha Stewarts Cupcakes’ is full of amazingly beautiful looking cupcakes, some simple, some filled and a few more detailed.

Title: Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes
Author: Martha Stewart
Publication Date: June 2009
Location in Library: In non fiction under 641.8 STE
Blurb: Swirled and sprinkled, dipped and glazed, or otherwise fancifully decorated, cupcakes are the treats that make everyone smile. They are the star attraction for special days, such as birthdays, showers, and holidays, as well as perfect everyday goodies. In Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes, the editors of Martha Stewart Living share 175 ideas for simple to spectacular creations–with cakes, frostings, fillings, toppings, and embellishments that can be mixed and matched to produce just the right cupcake for any occasion. Alongside traditional favorites like yellow buttermilk cupcakes swirled with fluffy vanilla frosting and devil’s food cupcakes crowned with rich, dark chocolate buttercream, there are also sweet surprises such as peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, dainty delights like tiny almond-cherry tea cakes, and festive showstoppers topped with marizpan ladybugs or candy clowns.
