Oh. My. Goodness. Is what I said when I received the Big Book of Cupcakes to review. Wow. Talk about the absolute CUTEST and most creative cupcakes I have ever laid eyes on. No more second guessing myself, when I go to prepare my children’s birthday cupcakes. I will be the mom in town that can make those cupcakes 🙂 You know, the moms that are super creative and ALWAYS make the BEST birthday cakes and cupcakes EVER? Yep, I am now one of those moms 😉
All the tricks of the trades are inside this beautifully illustrated cupcake book and it is MINE! Teehee..
The pictures in this book are gorgeous, the details are amazing and it has everything you need to make the best cupcakes in the whole world, seriously.
I sat down with my kids and we took about a good 45 minutes just going through the pages in this book. My kids picked out some cupcakes that we will be making and we are all so excited!
What I also love about this book is that it lets you know where to buy the goodies to put on the cupcakes. Like if the picture shows cute little sugar doggy faces (and it does!), in the sidebar, it tells you where you can purchase those! So, no having to guess or search on the internet! Love that!
