J'ai testé ma première recette de cupcakes et malheureusement ils étaient bien trop sucrés et gras (beurre). Peut être un problème de conversion…
Je le conseille car ce livre est de bonne qualité

Overall, I'm so glad I bought this. My only criticism is that I wish it was organized better. I wish there was a list of all the recipes and the corresponding page number because you do have to look through the entire book to find the recipe or go hunting in the back index, which includes everything else too.
The only recipe I've made so far is the Salted Caramel. It came out well but the recipe made 24 cupcakes instead of 12. I've never seen a cookbook off by that much (and I am using standard size cupcake pans!). Though I guess making more is better than making less!
However, I highly suggest this book. If you're looking for a certain recipe/cupcake, leave me a comment and I'll check to see if the book has it!
The reason I wonder is this: The caramel apple recipe seemed really inaccurate. I'm an experienced baker who wanted to see what the fuss was about, and this recipe was very disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written and it made 28 cupcakes vs. the 18 they say it will make (others have said this as well). They didn't rise well and looked nothing like their pictures. I threw those out and started again. I filled the liners with less batter and they still didn't turn out great. They taste good, but they didn't rise and are flat. Again, it made 28 cupcakes.
I was going to try the carrot cupcake recipe but I didn't bother, because it's the same recipe as the caramel apple cupcakes with the addition of grated carrots.
I have tried their vanilla cupcakes which are very good. I also made the milk chocolate frosting which was good. I love their cream cheese frosting (which I've been using for awhile as that has been published on the internet).
I was also hoping they would give more information about their fondant decorations and where they purchase the cutters. I have mini cookie cutouts and plunger cutters and have never been able to find them in the turkey, snowflake, Christmas tree, or reindeer fondant decorations that they use.
Overall, I enjoyed reading their book and am looking forward to trying other recipes, but I will not try the caramel apple or carrot cupcake recipes again.
I have not tried any of the recipes in the book yet. I am going to bake the vanilla cupcakes with the vanilla buttercream frosting tonight so I will update my review and let you know how they turned out. I have high hopes that the girls have taken just as much effort into these recipes as they have with the ones that they use for their cupcakery.
I have now made the Vanilla cupcakes w/ Vanilla Buttercream frosting and the Red Velvet cupcakes with the Vanilla Cream Cheese frosting. I took the Vanilla cupcakes to work and everyone was raving. They were still talking about them the next day! I made the Red Velvets over the weekend because this type of cake has been my nemesis!! However, these were moist and flavorful...two things that were missing in previous tries. My family really enjoyed them and my mom took 6 of them home! My next experiment will be w/ the Chocolate cupcake recipe from the Chocolate Goo-nache recipe w/ the chocolate ganache and the carmelized hazelnuts. I am very hopeful and excited.
