As a person with a major sweet tooth, I’m so glad to be able to bring you this review and giveaway. One of my favorite blogs that I’ve followed for a couple years now is Hoosier Homemade. Liz is the writer there and she’s got the most amazing inspiration when it comes to all things cupcakes (and more!). I subscribe to her Cupcake Chronicles newsletter and love all the fun ideas I find inside for cupcakes for each season and holiday. So I was super excited when Hoosier Homemade published an e-book, “Cupcakes! 12 Months of Happiness.” And I was even more excited to have the opportunity to review this yummy book!
My Mom is the best baker I know so when she came to visit this week we got busy trying out one of the awesome ideas we found in “Cupcakes!” just in time for St. Patty’s Day. And aren’t they soooo cute? I love them and my kids were wild about them! My version is a little different that what you’ll find in the book. I used a different kind of sprinkles to outline the edges because that’s what I had on hand, and as a frugal blogger I don’t want to have to go buy a ton of special gadgets and ingredients to make my goodies. And this is what I really LOVE about this e-book: it’s jam packed with inspiration. What you do with it is up to you! There are tons of ‘wow’ ideas that you can easily tweak to make your own, make a few changes here and there based on what ingredients you have on hand, or build on one idea to come up with a few of your own. One of my first thoughts with this cupcake was to use red instead of green next time and use the heart cut-outs to make some Valentine’s Day cupcakes!
