What's New, Cupcake?: Ingeniously Simple Designs for Every Occasion Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The endlessly imaginative duo who turned cupcaking into a national pastime is back, with utterly new, eye-popping creations anyone can make.

• Create a cupcake race car, a cupcake robot, or ravishing ring bling cupcakes for a birthday party.

• Surprise the family with Chinese takeout dinner cupcakes on April Fool's or serve up a goofy chocolate moose.

• Captivate Mom with a bouquet of long-stemmed mum cupcakes.

• Build sand castle cupcakes with the kids.

All you need are candies from the corner store, cake mix, and canned frosting.

 
So what is new, Cupcake?

• Lots of "EZ" projects that use just a few ingredients--perfect for kids and parties.

• More pictures, brighter colors, bolder designs.

• More faux-food creations--so real you won't believe they're cupcakes!

• More comical critters and the cutest pets ever!

• More irresistible party centerpieces to celebrate hobbies, from golf to knitting.

• More spectacular holiday cupcakes: Valentine's, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

 
You'll end up with cupcakes so striking that you won't want to eat them--but so delicious you'll have no choice!

Review:

"The authors of Hello, Cupcake are back, this time with the promise of simpler recipes. Relying on doctored, store-bought cake mixes and the option of canned frostings, recipe time is used primarily for assembling and decorating cupcakes that take the form of animals, food items, and holiday-inspired scenes. The TOC may leave readers guessing recipe selections with chapter names such as 'I Thought You Ordered Chocolate Moose' and 'The House that Boo Built,' but the unconventional names embody the playful spirit of this title. Basic techniques, including filling cupcake liners and frosting cupcakes, are explained, and recipes are formatted into clear, easy-to-understand numbered steps accompanied by full-color photos. Kids and adults alike will find joy in the many artful creations, including a 'pizza' supported by cupcakes and topped with fruit 'pepperoni'; a banana split with cupcakes in the form of ice cream scoops, and Chinese takeout complete with Tootsie Roll broccoli florets. This is an innovative title that doesn't hold back." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The endlessly imaginative duo who turned cupcaking into a national pastime is back, with utterly new, eye-popping creations anyone can make. 

Synopsis:

'
Hello, Cupcake! turned a nation into millions of inspired cupcake artists and launched an international craze. Now the cupcake couple who started it all returns, with projects that are more hilarious, more spectacular, more awe-inspiring and even easier than ever.

But they don\'t stop at cupcakes. Cookies, pound cakes, pie dough, cheesecakes, bar cookies, Jell-O: no store-bought sweet treat is safe from their ingenuity and word play. There\'s something for everybody in this book, and every single item you need can be found in the neighborhood supermarket or convenience store. 

Playing with your food has never been so contagious.
