this book measures about 8"x8", a cupcake compare to a normal cookbook. has beautiful pictures & makes a great gift but could have more or better instructions on the decorative part of cupcake making. instructions for recipes (cakes & icing) are direct & easy but short on how to's when it comes to techniques.
I gave this to my 22 year old daughter (The cupcake Queen) and she absolutely loved it. She is just now starting to bake and was thrilled by the easy directions and the beautiful photos. Wish I would have picked one up for myself . . .
