The endlessly imaginative duo who turned cupcaking into a national pastime is back, with utterly new, eye-popping creations anyone can make.
Create a cupcake race car, a cupcake robot, or ravishing ring bling cupcakes for a birthday party.
Surprise the family with Chinese takeout dinner cupcakes on April Fool's or serve up a goofy chocolate moose.
Captivate Mom with a bouquet of long-stemmed mum cupcakes.
Build sand castle cupcakes with the kids.
All you need are candies from the corner store, cake mix, and canned frosting. So what is new, Cupcake?
Lots of "EZ" projects that use just a few ingredients--perfect for kids and parties.
More pictures, brighter colors, bolder designs.
More faux-food creations--so real you won't believe they're cupcakes
More comical critters and the cutest pets ever
More irresistible party centerpieces to celebrate hobbies, from golf to knitting.
More spectacular holiday cupcakes: Valentine's, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. You'll end up with cupcakes so striking that you won't want to eat them--but so delicious you'll have no choice
