Who did the photography and photo styling?

The wonderfully talented Matt Wittmeyer of Matt Wittmeyer Photography shot and styled (with my helping hand and creative eye) every photo of this book. It took many weeks, very long days, and lots of laughs to create the deliciousness you see on those very pages.

What's your favorite frosting? 

That’s a tough one. Although I love them all dearly, my heart belongs to my perfectly fluffy Peanut Butter Buttercream (p. 36). Great on cupcakes but even better just on a spoon.

Who ate everything you made while writing the book?

Oh boy, this question brings back memories of sugar overload. I was craving meat and vegetables for many days after.

Did you test every recipe? 

I have tested every single recipe in this book over and over again. Although I deeply wish I were perfect, I am not, and because of that I have found a slight error in one of the printed recipes. I sincerely hope you forgive me. On page 20, the Vanilla Cupcakes oven temperature is listed as 325 degrees and the baking time is listed as 10-12 minutes. My dears, this information was written for a commercial convection oven, not your home-based electric or gas oven. My apologies! My mind was stuck in my bakery on that one. The correct oven temperature is 350 degrees and the correct baking time is 25-30 minutes. Just keep a close eye on them in the oven, making sure they don’t brown up too much. And forgive me.
