Publisher Comments:

Witty, one-of-a-kind, imaginative cupcake designs using candies from the local convenience store, no baking skills or fancy pastry equipment required. Spotting the familiar items in the hundreds of brilliant photos is at least half the fun.
and#160;
America's favorite food photography team shows how to create funny, scary, and sophisticated masterpieces using a ziplock bag and common candies and snack items. With these easy-to-follow techniques, even the most kitchen-challenged cooks can:
and#8226; raise a big-top circus cupcake tier for a kid's birthday

and#8226; plant candy vegetables on Oreo earth cupcakes for a garden party

and#8226; trot out a line of confectionery "pup cakes" for a dog fancier

and#8226; serve spaghetti and meatball cupcakes for April Fool's Day

and#8226; bewitch trick-or-treaters with eerie alien cupcakes

and#8226; create holidays on icing with a white Christmas cupcake wreath, turkey cupcake place cards, and Easter egg cupcakes

Synopsis:

America's favorite food photography team, responsible for the covers of America's top magazines, shows how to create funny, scary, and sophisticated masterpieces, using a zipper lock bag and common candies and snack items. No baking skills or fancy pastry equipment is required. Houghton Mifflin

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.

I purchased "Hello Cupcake!" at the request of my nieces (age 13 and 10). They have become quite the cooks of late and are particularly fond of baked goods. The feedback I have had from them indicates that this was an excellent choice. The illustrations are superb and the recipies are easy to follow. The result has been great looking and tasting treats. They especially like the fact that these cupcake recipies to not require a lot of specialized equipment or exotic ingredients. As my youngest niece says "It's AWESOME!" (her highest and loudest praise). It seems I found a winner for them.

This is a beautifully-photographed book full of ideas for funky, creative cupcake decorations. I love the April Fool's cupcakes, the alligator, and the Halloween-themed cupcakes. The designs are clever rather than complex and well within the reach of most home bakers. My 12-year old niece was able to produce the sunflower cupcakes, and they were stunning!
