Crys (The Hodgenator)
The Cupcake Club is back - and this book's focus is on Alexis.

Alexis' sister, Dylan, is turning sixteen, and The Cupcake Club has been hired to provide the dessert. There is just one problem: Dylan. She is an unreasonable customer, but sticking with the theme of this series, all things are worked out in the wash.

The true focus of this novel is not on The Cupcake Club and their dilemma with Dylan; the focus is growing up and developing first crushes. For Alexis, that crush is Matt Taylor, brother...more

Alexis' older sister Dylan is having a Sweet 16 birthday party and has turned in a monster over the plans. She doesn't want the Cupcake Club to make the cupcakes and gives them grief over every cupcake they pitch. Alexis has bigger probelms, though-- she has a huge crush on Emma's brother Matt, who will be at the party. Since she loves math and research, she tries to scientifically determine how to make boys like her-- soft clothes in soft colors, curly hair, vanilla perfume. It takes a while to...more

Recommends it for: someone who wants to read a cute easy book
I think the series is very cute, but this book was VERY cheesy. This book was about a girl having a crush and it ends up stirring the batter (haha see what I did there (; ) The end had the cheesiest ending EVER,and it seems like the author was starting to write the book and was taking her time with it... AND THEN SHE JUST STOPPED. The whole series isn't hard hitting and action packed (I mean its about cupcakes and tweens and drama what can you expect). If you really needed to read an entertainin...more

I thought that this book was okay. I don't know if I want to keep on reading the series because it is to easy for me and the books are not that interesting anymore.

I really love these series and I love the romance going on
I thought Coco did a great job describing all the different scenarios Alexis was going through. The one main reason why I liked the book is because I can relate to Alexis and how she is feelings. I think the book had lots of action and I highly recommend this book. I will read the next book of the series, Katie Batter Up, it had a lot of things I can relate to and it can give me some tips on how to act around crushes. Also Read the first three because those are really good. By reading the first...more
This series is just adorable! I really can't get enough of them. Alexis & the Perfect Recipe was a bit boy crazy for me but was a theme that had to be hit on at some point. I have to admit, I like the little life lessons that are throughout... Friends stick around longer than boys, appreciate your family, and my favorite... The normal girl approach to getting boys attracts the good guys!

Having read a book on each of the four cupcake girls, I have to say I appreciate the books all the more. It is wonderful to see how different each girl, their families and their lives are. It makes the stories all the more interesting. I also think that the characters are growing up a bit in the course of the four books.
Oh boy, do I love these silly little books. I was annoyed, however, that this one was consumingly about a boy. I loved the productive and forgiving way that the girls solved their problems and the ending of the book that promises the next one won't be so boy crazy. Well, we'll see, since I have that one to read too :)

Hmm it was a good book...but still when i should write an opinion from my side I would have prefered it if it had less of love, romance and girlfriend-boyfriend stuff since I'm not such a reader.
Anyway for people who like such books, its a good read.
Ketika cinta datang, ikuti saja kata hatimu.

Alexis, yang perfeksionis dan well organized jatuh cinta. Dan Ia, punya rumus matematika untuk mendapatkan cintanya. Intinya satu, fokus ke tujuan :D

A cute little series so far and something that can be enjoyed by most if they give it a chance and like these types of stories. Give this one and the rest of the series a read!

So far this one is my least favorite in this series. The story was still good, it just lacked that little extra something. Did enjoy some parts just not all
Andrea Escaffi-James
Very cute series. Interesting (and age appropriate) storylines.
I loved this book, and especially how the author included her sister Dylan's sweet sixteen party! That was a great twist! Great job!

Coco Simon always dreamed of opening a cupcake bakery, but she’s afraid she would eat all the profits. When she’s not daydreaming about cupcakes, Coco edits children’s books and has written close to 100 books for children, tweens, and young adults, which is a lot less than the number of cupcakes she’s eaten. Cupcake Diaries is the first time Coco has mixed her love of cupcakes with writing.
