Divine Cupcakes: A Book of Temptation, by Tamara Jane (New Holland Publishers, RRP $29.99):
My somewhat warped sense of humour perked up when I spotted this book: for some reason the title struck me as a very good name for a stripper. And the “Book of Temptation” subtitle didn’t help.
However, it is in fact a beautifully illustrated book of cupcake recipes that shows they are much more than just little buns. No, these creations are rich, exotic and fun.
The recipes cover everything from the quite plain to the quite spectacular, and there are step-by-step instructions for decorating the little beasties so your own efforts will look every bit as good as those in the book.
Even someone as artistically challenged as me can make a pretty good fist of it.
