As they did before, Karen and Alan start with basic cupcakes and then, using their completely quirky imaginations and heaps of supermarket ingredients — frostings and sprinkles and candy and candy and more candy — they go absolutely wild, creating jewels and animals, robots and race cars, cute critters and incredible centerpieces.
I giggled my way through the book, the whole time marveling at their outrageous talent -and I’m not a newcomer to their wit: Alan Richardson did the photography and Karen Tack did the styling for both Baking From My Home To Yours and my newest book, Around My French Table. So I know — or at least I thought I knew — how ingenious they can be. They’ve outdone themselves!
The book is pure fun!
PS: Just for a little more fun, here’s another look at one of Karen’s (many) sprinkle cupboards. (Click here for a different behind-the-scenes peek.)
