The sensational No.1 New York Times bestseller
Swirled and sprinkled, dipped and glazed, or otherwise fancifully decorated, cupcakes are the treats that make everyone smile. They are the star attraction for special days, such as birthdays and holidays, as well as perfect everyday goodies. Now in Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes, you can enjoy 175 ideas for simple to spectacular creations – with cakes, frostings, fillings, toppings, and embellishments that can be combined to produce just the right cupcake for any occasion.
Alongside traditional favourites like yellow buttermilk cupcakes swirled with fluffy vanilla frosting and devil’s food cupcakes crowned with rich, dark chocolate buttercream, there are also sweet surprises such as peanut butter and jam cupcakes, dainty delights like chai-tea mini cupcakes, and showstoppers topped with marzipan ladybirds or clowns.
The book features cupcakes for everyone, every season, and every event: CELEBRATIONS (fondant monogram heart cupcakes for an elegant wedding); BIRTHDAYS (starfish-on-the-beach cupcakes sure to be a hit at children’s parties); HOLIDAYS (gumdrop ghouls and goblins ideal for Halloween revellers); and ANY DAY (red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for a potluck dinner or applesauce-spice cupcakes for an after-school snack).
In singular Martha Stewart style, the pages are both stunning in design – with a photograph of each finished treat – and brimming with helpful how-to information, from step-by-step photographs for decorating techniques to ideas for packaging and presenting your cupcakes. Whether for any day or special days, the treats in Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes will delight one and all.
