When the perfect treat is bite-sized, these mini cupcakes fit the bill. Created by two expert bakers and caterers, they feature an amazing array of irresistible flavor combinations, from rich, melt-in-your-mouth custard varieties to tiny tiramisu. But whether sophisticatedly sweet, decadently daring, or sharp and spicy, they’re great to make, attractive to display, and endless fun to eat. Serve them at children’s parties, at afternoon teas, at barbecues, and (especially when dressed up in a fancy liner) at a swanky soiree.
Begin with some basics, like Yellow Cake, Very Vanilla, and Cocoa Chocolate cupcakes, frosted with various types of buttercream, cream cheese, salted caramel, meringue, ganache, and royal icings—plus fillings, like Chantilly Cream. Then pull out the bowls and the mixer, and start heating up the oven for everyday treats like Minty Minis, Chocolate Banana cupcakes, and Lemon Angel Food with Coconut and Blueberries. Or go for a gourmet goodie: small beauties like Petite Pecan Pie, Pineapple and Green Tea, or Cherry Marzipan.

Some recipes are made just for a special occasion, like birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, and holidays. Try "Capture My Heart," frosted with fondant, for Valentine’s Day; Halloween bites with marshmallow "ghosts"; and a mini-cupcake bouquet of pink roses for Mother’s Day. Or, for something more savory, indulge in Cornmeal & Avocado; Sweet Potato, Pea & Curry; or Blue Cheese & Spinach Nibbles--they’d make wonderful hors d’oeuvres!

This collection offers just the right sprinkling of inspiration, good ideas, and tips and tricks any home baker needs.
