Make adorable, imaginative cupcake creations-without special tools or spending hours in the kitchen. From fairies and unicorns to football players and airplanes, there are designs for everyone.

Make it Easy, Cupcake is filled with ingenious cupcake designs, all made from common candy and other snack food you can pick up in a grocery store. Each cupcake is composed of simple components brilliantly reimagined as edible art-a handful of marshmallows become blooming daffodils, graham crackers are transformed into airplane wings, and jewel-colored jellybeans become flitting dragonflies. Best of all, every design is made in only four steps!

Simply start with a batch of plain cupcakes (from scratch or from the store) and follow the four easy, illustrated steps to assemble your own creation. Each cupcake includes a complete list of the exact candy used-all of them readily available at the supermarket. There's no need for fancy piping bags or exotic ingredients; you don't need to have graduated from pastry school to make these adorable cupcakes!

With designs for every occasion, from snowmen with dapper hats for the holidays to a Loch Ness Monster, you'll find inspiring and adorable cupcakes on every page.

Reviews for Make it Easy, Cupcake: Fabulously Fun Creations in 4 Simple Steps

Karen and Alan CRUSHED the cupcake game yet again! All the same whim and wit, but in straightforward simplification that is literally a piece of cake! Channeling the same childhood spirit of giggle and goof, Karen and Alan deliver an end game that proves you and any of your cupcake decorating team, are every bit the pro. Fun to decorate, a joy to relish in and a delight to eat. A perfect formula, if you ask me! --Christina Tosi, chef and founder Momofuku Milk Bar I am proud to say I own every book Karen Tack and Alan Richardson have created and I am so excited this new delicious one has arrived! --Dylan Lauren, Dylan's Candy Bar Make it Easy, Cupcake is stamped with Karen and Alan's boundless imagination, spunk and humor. That each adorably illustrated creation has only 4 steps is a bonus, like a double-dip of sparkly sprinkles on a frosted cupcake. --Dorie Greenspan, James Beard award-winning author of Dorie's Cookies
