Yes, I am still working my way through the pils of cookbooks that arrived when I fell off the edge of the world and stopped being a regular blogger. And this one focuses on cupcakes. Its title? Bake It In a Cupcake: 50 Treats with a Surprise Inside. Its publisher? Andrews McMeel. And its author? Megan Seling. Here is one of her sites.
As you all know, I am definitely not a baker. But, I do like sweets. And I know some people who like to bake. Does that qualify me to comment on this cookbook? Probably not. But, I was drawn in by the cover photo, which is a white cupcake, cit in half to reveal its interior -- with a (very) pink heart inside. This forced me to look inside, where I found (to my utter surprise) cupcakes with tiny little pies baked inside them. How odd, I have been thinking ever since. How odd.
And, so, I shall mail this cookbook off to a friend who likes to bake cupcakes. I will, I will. Somehow the prospect of pies inside cupcakes seems very disturbing to me. I do not know why. Does it disturb you?
