Book Review: Pink Princess Cupcakes by Barbara Beery

Every little girl dreams of being a princess. So how do you translate that into a cookbook? That is just what Pink Princess Cupcakes so beautiful manages to do. Author Barbara Beery starts with five basic recipes such as Favorite Vanilla and Banana then she takes them one step further, giving us 28 refreshing takes on the basic five. Little girls will love making cupcakes themed just for them. Lets face it: what little boy wants to make Enchanted Crystal or Magical Mermaid cupcakes?

Pink Princess Cupcakes is part of Beery's Pink Princess Cookbook series for little girls. It is a wonderful cookbook. The photos and design are whimsical without being cheesy. I made the Rainbow Princess cupcakes first. I am a terrible baker and wanted to try something very simple first. They were easy and the food coloring really added a new element that I wouldn't have thought of. Next I wanted to try something a little more grown-up. So I decided to try the Teacup Treats. No one believed I made these –  they thought I bought them and put them into my own cups. The banana cupcake recipe in this makes these different but wonderful. It is like banana bread with icing on top.

The recipes are all easy to follow and can be adjusted in almost any way to suit your tastes and likes. They are also easy on the budget use pretty basic ingredients that most bakers will have in their kitchens. While all of the recipes are designed with your little princess in mind there are several that, with a little creative remixing, could easily be converted into wonderful confections for your little prince. So grab your kids, a copy of Pink Princess Cupcakes and run to the kitchen. I guarantee you are going to love making these cupcakes with your children as much as they will love eating them.
