150 Best Cupcake Recipes

If your house is like mine, everybody loves cupcakes. However, after reviewing 150 Best Cupcake Recipes, I have learned that there are so many more flavors out there. I have just done vanilla and chocolate cupcakes. Who knew there was such a thing as vegan almond cupcakes or margarita cupcakes? I know I didn’t! Plus, I love any book that has an entire chapter titled chocolate!

There are also decorating tips and techniques for everything from rustic to fancy cupcakes as well as theme decorating ideas for occasions from Valentine’s Day to weddings and birthdays. A tools and equipment glossary make this a truly complete cupcake baking guide. 150 Best Cupcake Recipes also teaches you how to make homemade marshmallows and icing! The pictures in here are also absolutely mouthwatering!

150 Best Cupcake Recipes is perfect for the house who loves cupcakes or the mom who is constantly having to come up with new ideas for the school’s bake sales! I highly recommend this cookbook!

In partnership with Target, Angie developed 20 snack-sized packages of her all-natural, gluten-free Angie’s Classic Kettle Corn. The pack comes with adorable stickers for personalizing each 70 calorie, .5 oz bag. They are soooo yummy! I’ll be honest — it’s hard to just eat one bag! That being said, this is the perfect snack for our school age kids!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to make sure one of my lucky readers’ kids could enjoy such yumminess in their classrooms too, so I have arranged for one of my lucky readers to get 20 snack-sized packages of all-natural, gluten-free Angie’s Classic Kettle Corn!
