One Sweet Cupcake by Janell Brown is a cookbook, which isn’t the type of book I usually read from cover to cover, but the pictures alone tempted me through this one, not to mention the mouth watering cupcake names—Coconut Key Lime, White Chocolate Raspberry, Caramel Pecan, Mayan Hot Chocolate, etc. Then there is the section of perfect fillings and frosting, and a recipe for marshmallow fondant that seems simple enough even for a novice baker like me to attempt. What I love most though is the lack of crazy ingredients that you have to go to multiple stores to find—okay, maybe vanilla bean paste is on the pricey side, but I made the Peaches and Cream Cupcakes with just the regular vanilla extract and they were delicious. With a Cupcake Wars win under her belt, you know that Janell Brown knows her cupcakes and I am so excited to try out more recipes from this book.
The Grizzly Kid was the editor on this lovely cookbook which means I have an advanced copy to try out! Janell Brown’s book is available for pre-order on Amazon and won’t disappoint.
