9-year-old author Carrie Berk has coolest book party ever, complete with chocolate fountain, custom book cover cupcakes and cupcaketinis, for debut novel Peace, Love and Cupcakes

Posted by Jenny Louw at 6:02 PM 0 comments
We'll have more about 9-year-old debut author Carrie Berk, who blogs about cupcakes at Carrie's Cupcake Critique and her new novel, the first in a series, Peace, Love and Cupcakes, about a group of little girls who form a cupcake club at their school, start a cupcake business, fight bullies and have fun baking, decorating and learning about each other. It was written along with her mom, Sheryl Berk, and will officially be on sale Tuesday, April 3rd, in print and ebook form. And of course there are cupcake recipes at the back of the book, including one for ecolicious cupcakes and others that play a role in the plot.



Here are a few snapshots from tonight's amazing book party at Dylan's Candy Bar in Manhattan; it is a dream space and was set up with a chocolate fountain where you could get Peeps, marshmallows, Rice Krispie treats, pretzels, strawberries or bananas dipped in it, a cupcaketini cocktail, which had Frangelico, Bailey's and Kahlua (adults only, obviously) and adorable custom mini cupcakes courtesy of Georgetown Cupcake, which managed to replicate the book cover exactly, with glitter! So much fun and if you have little kids, check out Peace, Love and Cupcakes; the next novel, Recipe for Trouble will be out in November. You can also follow Carrie on Pinterest as well as @CBCupcakeCritic on Twitter and on Facebook. Congratulations on a sweet party and a sweet book!

Does a no bake cupcake count as a cupcake?

Posted by Jenny Louw at 6:42 AM 0 comments
That was my first thought when I saw this post at The Kitchn with photos and the recipe for no bake lemon cream and coconut icebox cupcakes. They are adorable and look super fun but what do you think? Do cupcakes require baking? Can these desserts lay claim to the title of "cupcake" or should they be called something else? (Note: I only mean this query half seriously, and we do occasionally post non-cupcake items that look cupcakes, but I really am curious, but by no means wish to discourage you from making them. I like all the things involved with them, including lemon cream, coconut and Nilla wafers!) Also, from the post: "Use the lemon cream as the base, but if you don't like coconut, for instance, you could sprinkle these with chopped candied lemon peel or white chocolate shavings instead. Or double up on the lemon and drizzle them with warmed lemon curd!" Also, I love lemon curd. Like would eat it straight out of the jar love it.
