Crown Publishing Group | June 2, 2009 | Trade Paperback

Martha Stewart's Cupcakes: 175 Inspired Ideas For Everyone's Favorite Treat is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 7.
The perfect cupcake for every occasion.

Swirled and sprinkled, dipped and glazed, or otherwise fancifully decorated, cupcakes are the treats that make everyone smile. They are the star attraction for special days, such as birthdays, showers, and holidays, as well as perfect everyday goodies. In Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes, the editors of Martha Stewart Living share 175 ideas for simple to spectacular creations–with cakes, frostings, fillings, toppings, and embellishments that can be mixed and matched to produce just the right cupcake for any occasion. Alongside traditional favorites like yellow buttermilk cupcakes swirled with fluffy vanilla frosting and devil’s food cupcakes crowned with rich, dark chocolate buttercream, there are also sweet surprises such as peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, dainty delights like tiny almond-cherry tea cakes, and festive showstoppers topped with marizpan ladybugs or candy clowns.

The book features cupcakes for everyone, every season, and every event: Celebrations (monogram heart cupcakes perfect for an elegant wedding); Birthdays (starfish-on-the-beach cupcakes sure to be a hit at children’s parties); Holidays (gumdrop candy ghouls and goblins ideal for Halloween revelers); and Any Day (red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for a picnic, or caramel-filled mini chocolate cakes for grown-up gatherings).

In singular Martha Stewart style, the pages are both stunning in design–with a photograph of each finished treat–and brimming with helpful how-to information, from step-by-step photographs for decorating techniques to ideas for packaging and presenting your cupcakes. Whether for any day or special days, the treats in Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes will delight one and all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Ideas This book is great! It has so many cupcake ideas for birthdays, dinner parties, baby showers, etc. Some sample flavours are peanut-butter filled, stout, raspberry cream cheese or my favourite, mint filled! Some of the cupcake are more time consuming and difficult to create but if you're like me and you aren't as skilled there are plenty that are more simple and don't require as much craft. Happy baking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best I really like this cupcake book. It has different variety of cupcakes, icing and also shows you different tips you can use to decorate your cupcake. Easy to find recipes and every cupcake has a picture. ( I think pictures are must in a cook or any recipe book). It has a section on decoration as well but if you are looking for wild ideas on how to decorate your cupcake for a special event, this may not be for you. There are other books that focus more on decorating. But if you are starting out in cupcake world, I highly recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipes! I have tried a lot of the recipes from this book. My husband's favorite is the Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes. It's also one of my favorites. It's the popular one at his work too. I definitely recommend this cupcake book for cupcake lovers and home bakers. I enjoyed baking from this book. Actually, this is my most trusted cupcake book that I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cupcake Options! I haven't tried any of the recipes in this particular book, but other Martha Stewart recipes have turned out wonderfully for me before. I found this book to have a good mix of both simple cupcakes and more complex options for any occasion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic pictures and great ideas Fantastic pictures and great ideas. This is an awesome book if you are into cupcakes and desserts. These cupcake recipes are not for your everyday eating as most of them look like they take a fair bit of time and patience to make. But if you have the time, then you'll wow any crowd.

Read from the Book

One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes with Gumdrops Piped buttercream starbursts and chewy gumdrops make playful toppings for these ever-popular chocolate cupcakes. As the name of the recipe implies, all the ingredients come together in one bowl. Using vegetable oil instead of butter makes an exceptionally moist cake; good quality cocoa powder, such as Valrhona, produces a deep, dark color and the best flavor. White icing and clear gumdrops combine in this elegant monochromatic motif; use multi-colored gumdrops for a more whimsical effect. You can customize the cake flavor by using a different extract in place of the vanilla; for example, anise would complement the clear gumdrops used here (increase amount of extract to 1½ teaspoons). Makes 18 1½ cups all–purpose flour ¾ cup unsweetened Dutch–process cocoa powder 1½ cups sugar 1½ teaspoons baking soda ¾ teaspoon baking powder ¾ teaspoon salt 2 large eggs ¾ cup buttermilk 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract ¾ cup warm water Swiss Meringue Buttercream (recipe below) ¾ pound gumdrops, for Garnish 1.
