Book Review:Betty Crocker the Big Book of Cupcakes
Review by: Cynthia ( my mom)
This awesome cupcake book called: "Betty Crocker The Big Book of Cupcakes",has every variety of cupcake, each kind decorated differently. If you want variety....this book is IT. Almost every recipe can be made from scratch or with a mix, so take your choice. There are baked Alaska cupcakes, lemon burst cupcakes, cookies 'n cream cupcakes to name only a few. I love the ways the cupcakes are decorated....easy enough for an amateur. There is a favorite cupcake for everyone, there's "banana-chocolate chip cupcakes", "snowball cupcakes", "adorable applesauce cupcakes", decorated to look like an apple with a green gummy worm coming out of the apple. The icing on these cupcakes is red, a piece of pretzel is using for the apple "stem", the green leaves on the apple are green mint candy leaves. So simple to do. These would look awesome at some party.
If you want fun decorating and enjoy baking this Betty Crocker cupcake book is one of the Best! These cupcakes will make your birthday parties special. They're also ideal for holidays or graduation. This is one "yummy" cookbook you shouldn't be without. If you are on a tight budget and you can't afford an expensive store bought cake, or especially decorated cake, your kids will adore these individual cupcakes. Spectacular!!
