Once again, I was seduced by an adorable cover. I should remember to look inside recipe books while I'm still at the library. I don't care how adorable a cake looks, if it is from a recipe whose ingredients include boxed cake mix and a can of supermarket frosting, I'm not feeding it to my friends.

I have enjoyed the earlier books these authors have written and must say that they are very creative when it comes to cupcakes. Who know you could do so much with a cake and candy?

Reading the book is easy so I decided to try one of the recipes – the brownie dartboard. I am neither a baker, nor a decorator so this was a challenge. They state that the recipes are simple in this book, but when I attempted to make the darts, I had some problems. Although, they show enough in the photographs, I had t

This book is great - really good for getting creative ideas flowing. I rated this book higher than the others in the series because they incorporate other kinds of baked goods in this book - brownies, mini-pies, etc. Also, there are a large number of no-bake recipes here, which is great if you just want to practice your decorating. And even if you're not going to make cookies that look like make-up containers, there are lots of good ideas here - for example, widening the notch in cookies so they ...more

This book is super cute! It teaches you how to make many adorable cupcakes, cookies and pies. Some of them just too cute to eat!

What I like about this book is that everything seems doable. The baking ideas have decorations that an average person with little or no decorating experience could pull off.

Another good thing about this book is that even if you don't want to actually read or bake the recipes/make the decorations found in the book, the pictures are still cool to look at.

Yup you guessed it. I gave this book 5 stars. I had to because I actually baked some cupcakes from a recipe I found in this book. What I life first off is that it lists out the ingredients and methods very clearly and easily. As a first time baker I have no idea what all of the terminology is and it lists the vocabulary and defines it easily and clearly. It has a very different take on the different kinds of cupcakes. Maybe because I have never been into a cupcake shop before but after reading t ...more

The authors had some great new ideas for pound cake, brownies and cookies that hang off the side of cups. I loved the cupcake high heels. The recipes are very accessible for people who don't want the hassle of baking from scratch. The directions are also great for people who have not done much cake decorating experience. For people who are a little more practices at cake decorating it gives some great ideas for what you can turn a cupcake or cookie. I personally just use my favorite chocolate an ...more

YUCK--that was my impression while reading this book. I am really disappointed because I'm a big fan of the authors' other two books about cupcakes (Hello, Cupcake and What's New Cupcake). This one just took the silly food thing way too far, to the point where most of the items they made looked completely unappetizing to me. I think they just tried way too hard. Glad this was a library book and not something I spent money on!

I've looked at the authors' other two books, and this one is no different. Lots of "Oh my goodness!" pictures and amazing ideas. But nothing that I would ever actually go to the effort of making. Lots, lots, lots of fun to look at. I'm not generally a shoe person, but I think the shoes, made out of cupcakes, graham crackers, and a wafer cookie, are my favorite in this book, but there are so many ideas to choose from, I could have a different favorite after the next flip-through.

Meh. I guess I can't win- I thought that the cupcake books were super cute and innovative, but I don't like cupcakes. As much as I love cookies, cake and pie, I didn't really like any of the recipes in here. Some were cute- whenever they do convincing imitations of meals (cheesecake nachos, for example), I like those. I don't know- they felt too big, maybe?

I get cookbooks from the library. I flip through, find recipes I like and want to try, type them up, return the book. Rarely do I ever feel the need to own the book itself.

I need this book.

And I need to make the Nacho Normal Cheesecake. Like, I can't just leave it be. I must do this.

Great photos! I would say these are doable for the kitchen cook who has some skills and if you read through the directions and understand what you're doing before you dig in. Some look putzy but how cute for theme parties :)

I love these books - cake decorating even I can do. I never like the sweets that look like savories so I just skipped over those areas and found so many other great ideas. I'm making the frog cupcakes this weekend. Very recommended!

With the invention of Pinterest I think these books have gone the way of the dinosaurs. While it has a few super cute, cool, fun ideas. There are more I would never be interested in. The days of buying a whole book for three of the recipes you want... Well those days were years and years ago now.

Very experienced ideas! I tried to make big mouth frogs and they turned out like very ugly snakes. If you are extremely experienced this is a perfect book for you. If you are not experienced and looking for fun, FIND ANOTHER BOOK!!!!

Another sequel to Hello, Cupcake... this book goes beyond just cupcakes to include cheesecakes and cookies as well. They are really cute and the instructions make it seem like they would be fairly easy to do. I love the one that looks like shrimp cocktail.

Such pretty designs. For a very, very, very special occaion (or if I suffered from insomnia) I might try one out but cupcakes alone seem like enough work and a lot of these additions don't seem too tasty and isn't that the point of a cupcake?
Cupcakes, Cookies & Pie, Oh, My! is full of some very imaginative and creative baking ideas. The photographs are richly detailed and exquisitely produced. A very fun cookbook, for both young and old alike.

Grades 3-6. Beautiful illustrations entice ambitious chefs to create charming confections. As an adult, I know they don't actually turn out as wonderful as the pictures, but it definitely makes kids want to give it a try.

Checked this one out from the library, looking for inspiration. And that's exactly what I got. Such fun and creative ideas, with pictures of the ingredients (who knew a cat tongue could be shaped from Laughy Taffy?!?) to help you along. I believe I will purchase this one.
