Rated 5 out of 5 by JB87 Great purchase for cupcake lovers!
I bought this book as a present for my girlfriend and she absolutely loved it. It's full of amazing ideas and recipes for cupcakes (both sweet and savoury).
The only downside I can really think of for this is that some of the '1000 recipes' are exactly the same as one previous but with a slight ingredient change. For example, saying something like...instead of using chocolate chips why not use blueberries. I just thought that was a bit of a cheat to get to a 1000 recipes. However, having said that, this is still an excellent book and a worthy purchase for any cupcake lover or baking enthusiast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by neast25 Inconsistent Results
This book is a very poor book. I regularly find that following the recipe to the letter results in very differing quantities 0 for example where the recipe claims to make 12 cupcakes it will either be short by 1 or 2 or in extreme examples may make 1 and half times the batch. The recipes aren't always set out in the best order for the method, 1 particular example of this was a caramel cream recipe where the caramel has to cool completely before adding it to whipped cream but that means that the caramel sets to much to add to the cream. overall there are a couple of nice recipes in here but many of them are essentially the same with a slight variation which any budding cook would experiment with anyway.

I gave it as a gift to a friend and she loved it...so many receipts to choose from. And she is cupcake crazy so it is fab.
