I haven't had time to try all of these as I ordered all of the books from the cake doctor and then gave up sweets for Lent. I will make a dent in them soon but the one I made, I was told was good.

I have an extensive cookbook collection and this was a perfect addition to add to the other Cake Doctor books I currently have. Very pleased with my purchase.

LEAVES ALOT TO BE DESIRED AS FAR AS PICTURES IN COLOR BEING DESCRIPTIVE DECORATIONS. BORING. MAY BE GOOD FOR THE NEXT GAL.

A friend of mine had this book and I wanted it so bad. I could not find the book so I decided to search the web, which led me to Alibris. The shopping experience was wonderful and I got the book at a really great price. It was exactly what they said it would be and arrived in perfect condition. I will shop with Alibris again.
Publishers Weekly, 2005-04-25 From chocolate ganache to toppings with panache, this latest addition to the Cake Mix Doctor canon offers creative ideas and 135 recipes for tiny, delicious cakes. The detailed table of contents and alluring cupcake likenesses in the opening assemblage of photos will have readers salivating. The Cupcakes with Class chapter offers tasty elegance, from Cappuccino Chip to Harvey Wallbanger (which contains vodka and liqueur). Kids' cupcakes range from Cotton Candy to Caterpillar, and priorities delightfully in place, Byrn provides party-planning suggestions for favors and activities that complement the cupcakes. Helpful hints abound via "The Cupcake Doctor Says" tidbits, which appear throughout the book, and mini-essays that ponder questions such as "What's a Muffin? What's a Cupcake?" The Muffins: Breakfast Cupcakes chapter suggests ways to move beyond the classic blueberry (though Byrn offers a new take on that standby, too); Cupcake Cousins and Cupcake Creations will give do-it-yourselfers the confidence to try making fancy desserts in muffin tins. Fans of the regular QVC guest will already know that homemade frostings are a must, "the strand of pearls setting off the classic little black dress." Recipes for creams, glazes, frostings and sauces will help cupcake chefs "experiment and enjoy." (May) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
