This is the latest addition to my cupcake book collection and I must say it is one of the best. The author, Jennifer Graham, is the founder and owner of The Crabapple Cupcake Bakery in Melbourne, Australia.
What’s the “Crabapple Bakery Cupcake” Book About?
The layout of this book is beautiful with lots of photos that will tickle your taste buds to immediately go out into your kitchen and try some of the delicious cupcake recipes that you will find in this book. It has great content where Jennifer Graham gives you nice tips on ingredients, how to decorate and what kind of tools are important when baking cakes and cupcakes.
There are 32 different cupcake recipes in the book and 5 lovely cakes to make as well. After the cake section, you will find the tasty section with delicious frostings and fillings. The book finishes off with pages on suppliers throughout Australia.
I have now tried the vanilla and the chocolate cupcakes from the book. The vanilla was really nice and moist but I found the chocolate very loose and crumbly. It was much better the next day. I wanted to try the buttercream frosting but that was just too sweet for my taste. I think with small adjustments this frosting could be very good. Even though the frosting was a bit sweet for my taste I am still keen to try out more of the recipes in this book 🙂
