I'll admit, I normally HATE reality shows and anything on Food Network. But for some reason, I'm obsessed with this new show "Cupcake Wars" on Food Network.

This cupcake book is by far one of my favorite cupcake books. The recipes are simple, easy to make, and delicious

It does recommend a specific type of flour that I personally haven't been able to find, so I have had to improvise.

Love this cookbook, everything I've made so far is awesome and yummy. Batches of cupcakes are mostly 18-24, so you're not mixing up huge amounts of stuff. (As I've seen in other cupcake books.)

Has some new ideas, very do-able, and not too over the top, KWIM? The decorating instructions are almost non-existent though, so you better know how to do it yourself. Good list of resources in the back.

YUM - some of the best cake recipes I've tried in a LONG time. A tip - use baker's sugar for a smaller crumb.
