The Art of Cupcakes by Noga Hitron...Review & Giveaway
The Art of Cupcakes walks you through, step by step, in designing the most beautiful cupcakes you have ever laid eyes on. These cupcakes are absolute show stoppers and will, without question, make you the rock star of any event to which you bring them. I am not going to lie here, these are not cupcakes you throw together in 5 minutes with a slap of canned frosting. They are all decorated with fondant. Fondant is what makes a cupcake look fancy.
Now, fondant, has always looked a little daunting to me. but Hitron really does a great job giving step by step and easy to follow instructions. Believe me the extra work you put in will be worth the wow factor. The Art of Cupcakes is broken up into the following sections...
All in the Family
What a Wedding
In the Garden
A Multitude of Monsters
The Wild Ones
Fun in the Sun
In addition to the great designs in each section, there is a full section on the basics (tools, recipes and tips and tricks) and templates for all the designs. If you have any plans of hosting a bridal or baby shower you really have to have this book. The wedding and baby sections are my absolute favorite. The baby booty design is truly a work of art! I am also really anxious to try out the animals from "The Wild Ones" section. I think my kiddos would go crazy over those and seriously, wouldn't I be the coolest mom in the world if I whipped them some monkey cupcakes??
