Well you can get to know a very friendly librarian and get notes from her or you can keep reading this article. There are plenty of great cupcake cookbooks that are not very expensive and they can offer great recipes that will produce wonderful little desserts.
Sometimes you cannot really count on Amazon to give you the best recipes because it’s all going to boil down to personal taste, right? And some reviewers do not necessarily cook so they cannot really be qualified when it comes to judging the best cupcake recipes.
However, there are some cupcake cookbooks that you can count on. And here my list to help you get the best cupcake recipes…
“500 Cupcakes and Muffins” by Wendy Sweetser – well doesn’t the quantity 500 speaks for itself already? 500 muffins and cupcakes to choose from – this is like the Bible for cupcakes and with some many recipes you are guaranteed to find a lot that are perfect just for you!
“Cupcakes: Over 80 Delicious Recipes for All Occasions and Tastes” by Sue McMahon. This cookbook can be purchased for $16.22 and it is ideal for cupcake beginners. But then this is something so basic that even baking pros go back to use this book every now and then. Simple classics like strawberry topped jam can be found in this book and yet outlandish recipes can also be found here.
“Hello Cupcake! Irresistibly Playful Creations Anyone Can Make” by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson. This cupcake cookbook is being sold for $10.85 and can be very helpful to those people who don’t really cook a lot because the recipes make use of ready-made products and cake mixes that can surely be found at any supermarket.
“Eat Me! the Stupendous, Self-Raising World of Cupcakes and Bakes According to Cookie Girl” by Xanthe Milton – the cover may look sickeningly pink and too girly so yes, you might think it is a bit snobby and pretentious, but you must not judge this book by its cover. Prepare to be impressed by this cupcake cookbook because this was dubbed as a sexy baking book and you must prepare yourself to fall in love with the author. In this book, you will see many unimagined cupcake recipes like Jack Daniels cupcakes and French toast cupcakes.
These are some of the greatest cookbooks that I have found for baking, but remember that cupcakes are basically mini-cakes. Every cake recipe in the world can be adjusted to make a cupcake. In the last few years while cupcakes have become all the rage, I have found myself digging out a lot of my old intricate cake recipes and adjusting and changing them to make cupcakes, everything from my Bacardi Chocolate Rum cake recipe to my grandmother’s Baklava recipe can and have been adapted into delicious new creations in a little wrapper.
