Finally I got my hands on the latest mammoth book of Cupcakes by Martha Stewart and it is simply one of the most glorious pieces of cupcake pornography ever to grace my hands! It is filled with pictures to make you drool. There are 175 of recipes to keep you busy for months of cupcaking - from everyday cupcakes to filled and layered to special holiday cupcakes. There is a section on the basics with hints and tips (ie how to make a piping bag), and did I mention the photography is stunning!
I heart Martha and wish she was as big here as she is in the States but alas thanks to our Government treating her like public enemy number one and refusing her entry to the UK (Which riles me as we let known terrorists and all manner of evil people in and give them free-reign in our country but a woman who committed a crime and cooks cupcakes is refused entry...utter poppycock!) I'll just have to rely on her books and magazine for my Martha fix.
Her websites great too!
I shall definitely be trying my hand at the witchy cupcakes for Halloween - and maybe the Devils food ones for Manny sometime soon too!
