"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.)

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.
