Cupcake Recipes bookLast week we went to my friend, Liska’s house for her daughter’s birthday party.  Apart from being a lovely friend and a great mother, Liska is known for her cooking, and is especially famous for her cupcakes! (She made the most yummy cupcakes for a baby shower she threw for me a couple years ago, and I’m still raving about them).  The cupcakes she made for her daughter’s party were so tasty, I helped myself to a second and then continued to polish off the remaining crumbs of my boys’ cupcakes!  They were so yummy — moist and perfect with the most delicious frosting. (Honestly, better than anything you can buy!)

Want to know her secret?? This Cupcakes! recipe book by Elinor Klivans. The book gives all sorts of cupcake recipes from basic ‘head start’ recipes to the more decadent types.  She also gives tips and techniques for perfect cupcake making.

Liska made the Chocolate Sour Cream cupcakes and the Easy-Mix Yellow cupcakes both with the basic kid-simple frosting… and there was nothing basic about them.  They were divine!  Yummmm…
The book is available from Amazon UK and US .

Absolutely true, Liska’s cupcakes are the absolute best. I’ve never had a better cupcake in my life!

I will definitely have to try these recipes. I just made one of Elinor Klivans’ chocolate cookie recipes that Nigella reprinted in “Nigella Express” and they were so scrumptious!

I adore cupcakes and just served them at my daughters first birthday. I used the Magnolia recipe for red velvet cupcakes…as the theme was red a white. You can take a look on my blog if you would like. thanks for the tip on this book – will have to give it a try!
