101 Gourmet Cupcakes in 10 Minutes

I'm a pretty busy person, just like everyone else out there. I usually don't have the time to make cupcakes from scratch. Thank goodness for cookbooks like this!

I recently got my hands on 101 Gourmet Cupcakes in 10 Minutes by Wendy Paul. All of her cupcake recipes stem from using a cake mix.

I tested out her recipes about a week ago while making cupcakes for my sister's birthday party. I decided to be a little adventurous and make two different recipes using one box of cake mix. I also used one of the frosting recipes from the book.

Result: 12 Banana Strussel cupcakes and 12 Pineapple Upside Down cupcakes. Both were delicious and I got credit for baking two flavors of cupcakes!

This cookbook is available from for only $11.55. Perfect holiday gift for your favorite baker (or yourself)!

Crazy question, do they make any recommendations in that book for gluten free/wheat free alternatives or no? Otherwise, it looks amazing.

Thanks for the review..looks like a good book! I have two small kids and love to bake, so anything that saves time and still taste great is the best option for me!

I love this book! I have made several recipes and get rave reviews every time!

Although I just made the Lemon Cream and they didn't look anything like the picture. Granted they were very tasty, but not what I was expecting. Have you made them? I could use some input. I'm thinking the cream cheese and lemon zest should be mixed and dropped into the batter before baking, rather than mixed in as the recipe suggests.

Great blog! Thank you for sharing! :-)
