February is a gloomy time, full of dark skies and sleety snow and grumbles. What better way to cheer up than by making some exciting cupcakes? Just because Valentine’s Day is over doesn’t mean that we can’t make treats for ourselves!
Dana Meachen Rau’s new book, What’s Up Cupcake, offers myriad incredibly creative cupcake decorating ideas (who on earth would have thought of making an armadillo out of peanut-butter-filled sandwich cookies?) that will inspire any child–to either follow the recipe or make up their own designs! Rau, a prolific author of children’s nonfiction, has three other, equally creative and inspiring, books in her Dessert Designers series: Smart Cookie, Piece of Cake, and Eye Candy. Get out your mixing bowls and bake away those winter blues!
