This book is interesting and wonderful. This author makes desserts other than cupcakes (although cupcakes are still heavily included). This allows for a lot more creativity. There are some really novel ideas here, like high heeled cupcakes that really look like shoes! And a pie topped with marshmallow pigs under a blanket. However, this book is not necessarily all about the pictures...it gives guidance to techniques. It is loaded with step-by-step "how to" pictures. I think it really helps give the reader more confidence if they are cautious about trying a new recipe. You get to see things almost every step of the way. I also like the mixture of projects including many holiday themed ones. I cant wait to get started!
