If you’re looking for a cupcake cookbook for Halloween treats, this is it. It is a nice, hardcover and the size is approx. 8 x 8 inches. Many recipes are quite clever, like Shattered Glass cupcakes, which uses shards of broken sugar “glass” as a cupcake topper, which I’d like to try this year. Others are a bit grotesque, like the various body-part-stuck-out-of-a-cupcake.
And some are really fun, like the cupcake-as-hamburger recipe, or the easy-to-make mummies cupcakes, which my daughter wants to try. The book itself is beautiful, well-bound and nicely printed, and would make a good gift, including for budding bakers and anyone throwing a Halloween party.
