Cupcakes are big business these days, with fantastic bloggers like Bakerella and Cupcakes Take the Cake posting about their own to-die-for iterations alongside the books cropping up from famous bakeries like Magnolia Bakery and Buttercup Bake Shop. But for those of us whose icing skills are limited to cracking open a can of Duncan Hines & smearing it onto a still-warm cake with a butter knife, simple instructions are in order. Hello, Cupcake! Irresistibly Playful Creations Anyone Can Make, ($11) by food photographers Alan Richardson and Karen Tack, is our new Bible. Using nothing more than a zip-top bag, icing tips, and common candies & snack foods, they cheerily show you how to make fun, fanciful cuppies to dazzle any child or adult. Cheesy? Yes. A fantastic Friday night in with the girls or your nieces? Oh, definitely.
