Consider the cupcake cake on the front of the Cupcake Cakes cookbook. It looks like an ice cream cone, but in fact it is 18 cupcakes frosted and arranged in a delightful design pattern. And, seriously! What could be easier? 10 chocolate cupcakes, 7 strawberry cupcakes and 1 cherry frosted cupcake. Once decorated with the Good & Fruity candy that looks like sprinkles, you have made a beautiful ice cream cone cake. Truly fabulous!
Using Store Bought Cupcakes
I normally make my own cupcakes, but if you find yourself in a rush, you could simply buy cupcakes from the grocery store or bakery. Purchase whatever decoration candy is needed and the necessary frosting color, and whip out that cake design in no time. Using the ice cream cone cupcake cake again as the example, it would be extremely easy to buy chocolate and strawberry cupcakes, the Good & Fruity candy, and a can or tube of cherry frosting. This is perfect for the mom who is required to bring cupcakes for the classroom party, but doesn't have time to bake.
The Cupcake Cakes CookbookI own several cookbooks that include cupcake cakes, but this is my personal favorite. All of the cupcake cake designs are easy to replicate, yet they are adorable.
The book is fairly small compared to other cookbooks, plus it is lightweight. That makes it extremely easy to grab and carry to a party or school destination if you need it for reference when assembling the cake.
It has a spiral binding inside the cover which makes the book lay open flat. Anyone who has ever fought to keep a cookbook open to a specific page knows just how fabulous an internal spiral binding is to the chef.
Cupcake Cakes has instructions for 25 different cupcake cakes and each one is awesome. I love all of the animal designs myself, but there is also a wizards hat for Harry Potter fans, a flower bouquet cupcake cake and a princess crown for girls. There is even a treasure chest cupcake cake design which would be perfect for a scavenger hunt party or pirate themed party.
Buy Your Own Copy of Cupcake CakesThe book is available for a Kindle, but I recommend the actual hardcover book since there are color pictures. Of course, if you have a Kindle Fire, that is not an issue since it shows pictures in color.
