Second book in the Cupcake Club series, and I liked it better than the first. This book focuses on Lexie, the shy girl in the group. The book starts during summer and all the other members are out of town for the summer, and Lexie gets to go to NYC to spend some time with her crazy Aunt Dee. Aunt Dee takes her around the city, and Lexie find herself inspired by the city for new cupcake ideas. When the group resumes the club Lexie tries to share her ideas and tend to get over powered by the club ...more

I was first introduced to The Cupcake Club when the publisher, Sourcebooks, sent me a beautiful, colorful copy of one of the newer releases, for the purposes of providing a review. Now, I'm obviously not the intended audience of this particular series, but I can't deny that I was swept away by the adorableness of it all, so I couldn't resist trying another of the stories when I came across it recently on my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

In RECIPE FOR TROUBLE, young readers are introduced to Lexi

Recipe for Trouble by Sheryl and Carrie Berk is a cute book about a group of girls who are in a cupcake club. This is actually the second book in this series. I haven't read the first book, but I was able to follow along really well. Recipe for Trouble starts a few weeks before the new school year. Lexi is scared that the girls will grow apart during their separate vacations. She's also worried that the cupcake club will suffer as well. Lexi's fears are put to rest when everyone comes back toget ...more

Cupcake, O Cupcake, where for art thou cupcake?

This is a cute story about friendship, crushes and cupcakes. The second installment in "The Cupcake Club" finds the girls at the beginning of 5th grade after having spent the summer apart. They've each gone through some changes over the past few months and even Lexie, whose normally shy, seems to have gained a little confidence. That confidence will be put to the test when she's cast as Juliette in the 5th grade production of Shakespeare's famous p

Following up from the first book this is truly delightful. Sadie, Jenna, Juliet, and of course Kylie all have huge personalities and huge baking skills. They come across special baking jobs and special "frenemies": Meredith. I love this book and so will you!

I could really rant and rave about my opinion of this book. It was just silly. The only parts that I thought were the slightest bit realistic were the actions of the girls in trying to help Lexi with her crush. Other than that I think the story is completely contrived and should be in the FANTASY genre.
