Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It - had to buy it after trying their cupcakes downtown! Every recipe has come out amazing!! The only flaw I find is that each recipe makes waaaayyyy too much then I need... But the come out amazingly! Especially if you make it as mini cupcakes and its snack size and capture all the flavours... amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cupcakes! I live in Toronto and I'm a big fan of Prairie Girl Cupcakes. When I head about this book, I was quick to purchase it and eager to try it out. The recipes are amazing! I've tried about 5 recipes so far and they've all been wonderful. The gluten-free recipes are the best I've ever tried. I've brought cupcakes to parties and events and received comments like "You MADE these?" :) #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you love cupcakes this is the book for you! I have had this book since January and I am working my way through the recipes. They are easy to follow and absolutely delicious! Jean gives very detailed instructions including how long to whip the ingredients and which mixer attachment to use. I only have a couple to recipes left to try and so far I have received rave reviews for every cupcake I have baked! This maybe a small point but, I didn't realize that one could freeze icing and that it tastes as if you have just made it. So, now I freeze half the batch and can pull it out and quickly make dessert at the last moment. The pictures are beautiful and the paper quality is fabulous. I whole-heartedly recommend this book!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must own for cupcake lovers There's much to be said for the cover of a book. Does it make you look twice? Make you want to open it to see what's waiting inside you to discover? Make you hungry? For a cupcake? The Prairie Girl Cupcake Cookbook by Jean Blacklock does all of the above! And I love the tagline....Living Life One Cupcake at a Time. Prairie Girl Bakery is a sought out bakery, known for having the best cupcakes in Toronto. Prairie Girl is a scratch bakery - they use real eggs, real chocolate and real butter, milk and fresh ingredients - no premade mixes or shortening. And if you can't make it to TO to pick a sweet treat from Prairie Girl, here's the next best thing - their recipes have been compiled into a just released cookbook. The first few chapters explains those basic ingredients - and why they make a difference as well as tools. PGB uses five basic recipes for their fifteen everyday cupcakes. Same for the icing recipes. Honestly, I was kind of stunned when I realized how easy they were. And that the PGB mantra works - good ingredients and follow the recipe - you can't mess up. And I didn't! The treats of the week are a little more involved, but look so very good. I haven't managed to try them yet, but the Lemon Cheesecake Cupcakes are calling to me. There are so many choices in this section - perfect for holidays or special occasions. I know what I'm taking to the next pot luck, birthday, office celebration! Blacklock has included gluten-free versions AND vegan versions of all the basic recipes - cake and icing. The last chapter touches on presentation and gifting cupcakes. Each recipe can be used to make either 36 minis, 18 regular or 12 large. The one thing not included is the nutrition information. But really, just go ahead and enjoy one without worrying about calories - or two..... The Prairie Girl Cupcake Cookbook is printed on lovely, heavy stock and is filled with lovely colour photos that will have you salivating. The layout of the book is great and recipes are clear and easy to follow. Blacklock's love of baking and engaging personality shines through all of the chapter introductions and tips in each recipes. If you love cupcakes, this is definitely a cookbook you want to own. Oh, and the name? " The owner, Jean Blacklock, is from Saskatoon and proud of her Prairie roots even though her former careers in law and banking took her to Calgary and Toronto."
