Cupcake Cookbooks

By on Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

I love reading cupcake cookbooks and trying new recipes I find in them.   Today, I found some great looking cupcake cookbooks to share with you.  I went on and picked out a few that got top ratings from their customers.  I know money may be tight with the holidays coming up so think free: try your local library and enjoy some cupcake reading this winter for nothing.  The photos on the covers make my mouth water!

So I’m not sure if you are, but I am a Twilight fan, and in honor of New Moon coming out I made caramel apple cupcakes! I baked apple cupcakes, cut out the center &added caramel, then topped them with cream cheese frosting. I dipped them in red sugar, then added a pretzel and a mint leaf! I used the recipe found at iheartcuppycakes.
My boyfriend even took a picture of me holding one of the cupcakes in my hand and edited it like the first bookcover! =]

Hi there! Yesterday I made Sweet Potato cupcakes using fresh baked yams, and topped them with mounds of roasted marshmallows! I used the sweet potato cupcake recipe in Martha Stewart’s Cupcake book! My grandma ALWAYS makes sweet potatoes with marshmallows on Thanksgiving, so i figured this would be a perfect fall treat for my family and friends! I attached a picture to this email!

These look fantastic.  The texture and browned top of the marshmallow frosting is making my mouth water!  I couldn’t find a copy of Martha Stewart’s recipe online, so for those of you who want to give this recipe a try may need to buy Martha’s Cupcake Book.  Though, there are many other recipes online for Sweet Potato Cupcakes!

My daughter celebrated her 1st birthday with a cupcake themed party.  I had a giant cupcake made and it turned out absolutely adorable!
Hope you can share this with others!

What a beautiful pair of photos.  I love the coloring especially.  The warm colors have a retro or old americana feel of happiness.  Thank you for sharing with all of us.

Hello Sugar! Holiday Cupcakes

Hello Sugar his already in the holiday spirit with several holiday cupcake images on their website that look amazing.  I think my personal favorite is the snowman.  They kept him simple and traditional but still managed to include a lot of detail.   I also like that they use edible glitter.  I always loved it when my mom did food styling jobs that included edible glitter, something about it is fun to me.  According to the website the cupcakes are Callebaut chocolate cupcakes with dark chocolate chips and peppermint buttercream which sounds delicious!
