Cupcakes Year-Round
50 Recipes for Every Season and Celebration

by Sara Neumeier


Cupcakes Year-Round Remember when you were a kid and you could hardly wait to eat the cupcakes that your mother or grandmother made? Chances are no matter what age you are now, you still feel the same way about these sweet, bite-size treats. A tray of cupcakes brings a surge of joy to four-year-olds and sixty-four-year-olds alike. Children love cupcakes because the size seems tailor made for them, and adults love cupcakes because they transport us back to our childhoods.

Sara Neumeier also points out in her book, Cupcakes Year-Round: 50 Recipes for Every Season and Celebration, that part of the satisfaction of eating a cupcake is the idea of getting an individual dessert, just for you. This easy-to-use book that will inspire cupcake creations for any time of the year and any occasion, shows just how simple and fun making and decorating cupcakes can be.

The recipes in Cupcakes Year-Round offer a platter of full of delicious recipes for the kids and grown-ups. For the younger generation there are PB & J's, Snowballs, and Spelling Alphabet Cupcakes. For the slightly more sophisticated audience are such tempting treats as Black Forest Cherry Cupcakes, Hot Buttered Rum Cupcakes, Red Velvet Cupcake, and Carrot and Zucchini Cupcakes. Neumeier does not stop there. She also assembles recipes organized by season with Easter Egg Nests for the spring, Ice Cream Cones for the summer, Fallen Leaves for the fall, and Reindeer Snacks for the winter.

In addition, the recipes for batters, syrups, fillings, and icings can be mixed-and-matched to create more than 100 delectable cupcake options. The book also offers a wealth of tips on mixing; baking; piping and lettering techniques; and customizing cupcakes. Plus the book's unique easel format makes it a most cooperative kitchen companion.

So whether the occasion is a child's birthday party, a romantic Valentine's Day dinner, a Fourth of July family gathering, or a Christmas open house, there is a perfect cupcake that is sure to put on smile on everyone's face in Cupcakes Year-Round.
