Dessert lovers and bakers alike are craving cupcakes. From specialty shops and baking products to television specials and blogs, the must-have dessert has continued to grow in popularity and has become one of the most searched-for terms on marthastewart.com.
Now, Martha Stewart and her team of editors at Martha Stewart Living have created Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes, featuring 175 ideas and recipes for cupcakes, frostings, fillings, and toppings, along with a trove of suggestions for tastefully decorating and embellishing them.
From classics such as devil’s food cupcakes to sweet surprises like peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, and from elegant delicacies like tiny cherry-almond tea cakes to festive showstoppers topped with piped buttercream blossoms or meringue bouquets, each cupcake is accompanied by a gorgeous color photograph. They will inspire home bakers of any skill level, all of whom will find a cupcake for every occasion—birthdays, holidays, and special days such as weddings and showers—as well as for everyday enjoyment.
Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes also includes templates and clip art for decorative flourishes, an equipment glossary, and step-by-step instructions for basic and more advanced decorating techniques, plus ideas for presenting and packaging the cupcakes in Martha’s trademark style.
