Sugar and Spice and. . . Mashed Potatoes?

Hello Cupcake! By Karen Tack & Alan Richardson

As its welcoming title suggests, this book features examples of scrumptious cupcakes. In eight chapters with such headings as, “April Fool’s,” “Party Animals,” “Nightmare Before Thanksgiving,” and “Holiday on Icing,” cupcakes of all shapes and designs, with their accompanying recipes, are displayed. Step-by-step instructions on how to create specific culinary concoctions, a photographic display of the decorating materials and tools, cupcake and frosting recipes, and a list of food supply stores enable readers to tackle even the most advanced creations. The innovative cupcake designs can be used by those interested in catering, baking, and working with children. The only negative comment that can be made about the book is that it doesn’t come with free samples. Reviewed by Wendell Barnett
