Fantastic Filled Cupcakes: Kick Your Baking Up a Notch with Incredible Flavor Combinations

Camila Hurst. Page Street, $21.99 (192p) ISBN 978-1-64567-166-4
Pies & Tacos blogger Hurst makes her shining debut in a collection dedicated to the art of the cupcake. The recipes on offer are a bit more involved than the usual cupcake fare, and each boasts its own complementary filling: “The fillings make the cupcakes more complex, inviting and impressive,” Hurst writes. Fifty-four varieties are included, each with easy-to-follow instructions for making cake batter, fillings, and frosting. She begins with chocolate-forward creations, such as chocolate orange macadamia cupcakes, then moves to cookie-focused concoctions like chocolate marshmallow cookie cupcakes. Fudge and caramel options, meanwhile, include tahini caramel banana cupcakes and chocolate fudge carrot cupcakes. Perhaps most memorable are the surprising savory choices, among them turmeric and latte, pear and olive oil, and honey-rosemary-lemon cupcakes. Indeed, Hurst marries savory and sweet, herby and sugary in ways that shake up the tried-and-true. Home bakers as well as experienced pastry chefs will love this. (Nov.)
