New cupcake books

It is always nice to get new books and my mum was so sweet to look out for anything cake related when she was on holiday in Brisbane, Australia. She came home with these four books: Cupcakes & muffins from Collectors Edition, Cupcake Heaven by Susannah Blake, The muffin collection by Susanna Tee and Cupcake magic by Kate Shirazi. All of them looks to be good πŸ™‚ She also bought 2 cake magazines so I have lots of bedtime reading now.

I also got a set of Australian animal cookie cutters so now I can bake Kookaburra and Platypus cookies with the kids πŸ™‚ The sweet fridge magnets are from Robert Gordon and they now adorn the refrigerator.

Happy Caking



  1. Hy Luise!

    I am on vacation to Copenhagen and would like to know a well sorted store for cookie and cake decorating. Please mail to:

    Thanks for your kind reply,

    Isabella, Vienna

  2. I been working with alot of fondant and gum paste and always have small scraps of left over fondant & gum paste and I can’t seem to find a good place to store them so they will not get hard. Anyone has a suggestion?

  3. Hi Louise,
    I’m living in Copenhagen and would like to start making some cupcakes. Do you know when I can get cake decorating stuff or a place that sells cupcakes?


  4. Dear Louise

    I am based in Malaysia. I am interested to purchase those 4 books. How do I get hold of the books? Is there any way if you could help me to purchase those books and send it over to my home country in Malaysia. Please let me know the price of each book and how do I make the payment? Thank you.

  5. Hi, I also have a question regarding cake decorating shops in Copenhagen. My cousin is coming over to Canada in August and wants to bring me some stuff that we don’t have here, but I don’t know where the shops are. Thank you for your help.

  6. I have the collector’s edition muffins and cupcakes book there in the pic and i think it is great for a beginner like me bc the recipes are easily mastered then adapted πŸ™‚

  7. Louise, if you ever come down to Brisbane to visit your relatives. I would love to invite you over for a delicious meal. You inspire all of us – thank you.

  8. Wow, four new books. How wonderful. I made a trip to Michigan (I live in a border city) and saw some awesome cupcake and cookie decorating books. Your blog is convincing me that I need to get back into some nice decorating and I think I’ll give cupcakes a go. I’ll be anxiously awaiting your new designs.

  9. Virginie: Yes they are really sweet.

    Sonya: I have sent you an email with info πŸ˜€

    Kate: I would not let my hubby even touch it…. πŸ˜‰ Cupcakes is the best !

  10. Ha Toads are discusting (my husband throws ours over the fence) Im loving the colours of those books they look like art all stacked there together…..why is everything about cupcakes so perfect and sweet and delectable….mmmm mmmm

  11. Susannah Blake’s ‘Cupcakes’ was my first cupcake book. Her basic cupcake recipe is the BEST. Easy and the cakes stay moist for a long time. My son married a Danish girl and they live in Copenhagen. All the Danish family will be visiting at Christmas. Can you tell me where there is a cake decorating shop in Copenhagen as they want to bring me something. Thanks for your informative site.

  12. Thank you all. My mums aunt family emigrated from Denmark to Australia long time agoe in the 50’s I think. The last time they were in Denmark was just before I was born in 1976 πŸ™‚

    She spend three weeks in Brisbane and was not close to the storm. But I did get a little worried when I heard about it in the news. I myself would so much love to see Australia but you have those giant toads and I not sure I would like to meet one of those as I am so scared of anything froggy like πŸ˜€

  13. Yay for Brisbane, which is where I am. I’m going to have to hunt down some of those cupcake magnets, they are adorable.
    I also hope she missed out on all the big storms. That’s no way to spend your holiday.
