“Hello, Cupcake”

25 05 2008

We were out for lunch and then making various stops this afternoon.  As we left Best Buy, Nolan spotted Barnes and Noble and requested another stop.  Guy and Jesse waited in the car while Nolan and I browsed.  I was wandering back to Nolan and spotted this book by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson:

I picked it up to leaf through it and I ended up bringing it home.  There are some really creative ideas in the book.  When I brought it to the car, Guy told me I shouldn’t be allowed in a book store without adult supervision.  (I admit I like books and have a lot of them.)  However, the boys each found favorites.  This is Jesse’s:

This is Nolan’s:

I’m having a hard time deciding which I like best.  It is probably a toss up between these two


The book has complete directions for each of the cupcakes and none of them is horribly difficult.   This is a list of the cupcakes in the book:

  • Corn on the Cob
  • Bagels and Lox
  • Buttered Popcorn
