This weekend, I’m going to help my mom make some cupcakes from her new cupcake cookbook, Hello, Cupcake! by Alan Richardson and Karen Tack. The ideas in the book are absolutely the most adorable things you have ever seen. While I am given to exaggeration, that was not an exaggeration. Most. Adorable. Ever.
The great thing about the recipes in the book is that they are “doable” by regular folks like me and you. You do not need to have studied under some famous, fancy pants pastry chef to make these cupcakes. The authors use everyday ingredients and easy to replicate techniques in ingenious ways. And lucky for me and you, they put them in a cookbook with tons of full color photos of every, single recipe.
Hello, Cupcake! costs less than $10. What more can I say? The book is cheap. It will make you look like a baking superstar. And you’ll be able to eat cupcakes when you’re done. Nuff said? Good. I’ll leave you with a few photos then…
