Although I don't own this cookbook, I have given it away as a gift to a couple people. One of those lucky people being my mom so it's easy enough to borrow when I need a quick, easy recipe for cupcakes. There are some amazing "gourmet cupcakes" in here that make you feel like quite the top-notch baker. I have tried the Peppermint cupcakes and also recently the Root Beer Float cupcakes. Y-U-M-M-Y!!! Loving it!
