Janell Brown, winner of Cupcake Wars is sharing her recipes, tips and how to make amazing cupcakes in her new book One Sweet Cupcake.

Janell grew up in a small town with only one mom and pop grocery store, so not only are her recipes amazing but they easy recipes made with ingredients you can find at any grocery store.  When she faced some financial struggles, this stay-at-home mom decided to take her hobby to the next level and opened her own (now award winning) business.

The book is beautiful with big amazing pictures, like the ones above.   Not only does Janell share recipes but she also shares tips to be able to make sure your cupcakes will be awesome.

I was amazed at the amount of recipes for different kinds of cupcakes.  As soon as I thought it would end there was another section with even more recipes.

She also shares frosting recipes, decorating tips, topping and fillings recipes.  It really is very comprehensive.  Also, though she gives the full recipe for each type of cupcake,  the way the book is divided into sections, would make it very easy to mix and match different fillings or frostings with different varieties of cupcakes.

The book really is pretty with big pictures, big easy to read font, and just makes me want to start baking, or at least keep flipping the pages and drooling over all the recipes!

You can find out more about Janell's business on her website One Sweet Slice.

  1. That first cupcake up top looks delicious! I have a terrible sweet tooth. Given the choice between something healthy or something sweet, healthy never wins.

    1. Me either! Though in some ways cake is more dangerous as it is easy just to slice off a tiny sliver every now and then (every time I pass by the cake)

  6. Cupcakes are my favorite - and really need to get back into making them! The problem is that I will eat them all!

    However, my very favorite cupcake must be a pumpkin cupcake with cream cheese frosting! Delicious!
