Karen Tack & Alan Richardson
Witty, one-of-a-kind imaginative cupcake designs using candies from the
local convenience store.
America's favourite food photography team,
responsible for the covers of America's top magazines, shows how to
create funny, scary, and sophisticated masterpieces, using a zipper lock
bag and common candies and snack items.
With these easy-to-follow
techniques, even the most kitchen-challenged cooks can
- raise a big-top
circus cupcake tier for a kid's birthday
- plant candy vegetables on
Oreo earth cupcakes for a garden party
- trot out a line of
confectionery "pupcakes" for a dog fancier
- serve sausage and pepperoni
pizza cupcakes for April Fool's Day
- bewitch trick-or-treaters with
chilly ghost chocolate cupcakes
- create holidays on icing with turkey
cupcake place cards, a white cupcake Christmas wreath, and Easter egg
No baking skills or fancy pastry equipment is required.
Spotting the familiar items in the hundreds of brilliant photos is at
least half the fun.
This book includes more than 100 illustrations.
