Once upon a time, cupcakes were only a kid-friendly party favorite. No longer! Cupcakes are now the treat of the times, at once simple and chic. 500 Cupcakes is just that: a storehouse of recipes, written in clear instructions and appealingly packaged in bright, modern colors. 500 Cupcakes from front to back provides what bakers of all levels need to produce tempting creations. The introduction provides a comprehensive look at equipment and ingredients, plus a description of the cupcake-making process, from getting started to storing and transporting the yummy results. The collection of recipes span from classic flavors and shapes to new favorites for every style and taste including recipes for alternate diets. Each recipe is written in clear language (great for the novice baker), and every one features three variations on the basic recipe (great for the experienced baker seeking new flavors). The page design is attractive, featuring over 200 enticing pictures of cupcakes in the pan and on the serving plate 500 Cupcakes really is the only cupcake compendium you ll ever need!

Close your eyes and think of your favorite cupcake. I’ll wait a second. Now imagine having it in a cookbook with easy to follow instructions and color photos. In this book there are over 500 recipes for cupcakes. I love having them all in one book. Now when my daughter says that she needs some treats for a school party I can whip some up with easy directions. Some of the cupcakes featured are:
Oatmeal Muffins Pop Rock Cupcakes Crisp Rice Cupcakes Cookies and Cream Cupcakes
Plus each recipe has a color photo to show you decorating techniques. This book has kinds I never would have thought of. At the beginning of the book it also has a section on the tools you will need to make perfect cupcakes, baking tips, decorating tips and serving ideas for gifts. I made the classic vanilla cupcakes to try out how easy the recipes are and this is great for a beginning level dessert cookbook. Great for a teen and great to have on hand for fast party cupcakes.
