Cupcakes are the new rage in baking. They feature in every food magazine, and artisan bakers offer the most delightful versions. Don't be mistaken, these are not the boring children's party cakes of old. These are simply irresistible, from a wedding cake formed by a mountain of beautiful white cupcakes decorated with rose petals to a plateful of cupcakes glowing with individual candles for a birthday. There are low-fat cakes, gluten, dairy, egg and nut free cakes, and for those who just don'tt care there are wickedly indulgent ones too. This book guides you through the basic techniques to the over 500 user friendly, easy to follow recipes. Even the most hardened shop cake buyer will be enticed into baking.
