I have this book as well as there newest one. Some people do not like their cupcakes and personally I think that is there taste because everyone has different palates. Personally, I think their cupcakes are amazing. I have made various cupcakes from both books and not one has been a failed recipe. I have books from other famed chefs and some recipes are hit or miss. I do not like heavy, dense cupcakes and all of theirs are light and fluffy and full of flavor. Their frostings are also to die for. I feel that their recipes are also easy to follow if you do not have baking experience. I love to bake and make cupcakes and I think they have creative flavors. I have also brought their cupcakes to parties and to work and have only had raving compliments. I highly recommend this book and their second one. I will agree with one previous poster that for some reason in this book the amounts that the cupcakes should yield are way off and I can tell before making the cupcakes by the amount of ingredients to be used. I always yield more cupcakes than what it says but hey I do not see that as a bad thing ha ha ha. Buy this book!

I have followed DC Cupcakes religiously and have ordered the cupcakes for shipping numerous times. This cookbook is indeed heartwarming and there are lots from their actual memoirs. There are also numerous recipes for some of their best cupcakes, including Red Velvet, Pumpkin Spice, and Cherry Blossom. They also have several recipes that were exclusive to their show.

Overall, I'm so glad I bought this. My only criticism is that I wish it was organized better. I wish there was a list of all the recipes and the corresponding page number because you do have to look through the entire book to find the recipe or go hunting in the back index, which includes everything else too.

The only recipe I've made so far is the Salted Caramel. It came out well but the recipe made 24 cupcakes instead of 12. I've never seen a cookbook off by that much (and I am using standard size cupcake pans!). Though I guess making more is better than making less!

However, I highly suggest this book. If you're looking for a certain recipe/cupcake, leave me a comment and I'll check to see if the book has it!

I happened upon Georgetown Cupcakes about a month ago on a family trip to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival. We went to the store and really were very fortunate as we did not have to stand in line to enjoy their wonderful cupcakes. I saw the book up on the counter and that evening I purchased it on-line through Amazon.

The first recipe I made was the Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Cream Cheese Icing and the cupcakes were absolutely fantastic! I've made the chocolate cupcakes three times now and they have turned out perfect each and every time. I have also now made the Hummingbird Cupcakes, the Lemon Blossom Cupcakes, and the Vanilla Buttercream Cupcakes and each and every recipe has resulted in rave reviews from my family, friends and coworkers.

I did order the butter, vanilla, and cocoa recommended in the book and I do really believe that the ingredients do make a difference.

I very much recommend this book!

The stories are good but the recipes are a disaster! I tried the red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting and it is tasteless and way too sweet that I experienced palpitations and dizziness after eating it! I served this to our employees in the office and NO ONE liked it and I felt so totally embarrased! I am an experienced baker and have done recipes from other cook books with excellent results and praise from people. In this case, I am beginning to see that the proportions of the recipes in this book are not right. The sisters who wrote this should not publish a book with recipes that will totally mislead their readers and make people sick! ????????

Love these ladies but i feel like recipes are not spot on. Some of them seem like something is missing and the cupcake does not come out ask you would think. I bake a lot and never had this problem with a book. Nice to look at but disappointed.

I love Georgetown Cupcakes! I had them shipped in for my birthday recently and spent over $100. They are WORTH it! This book? I don't think the recipes are the actual recipes. The red velvet from Georgetown is terrific! The red velvet in the book? Well, I use a different recipe because this one isn't great. If you want cupcakes like theirs, order them.

I just love the recipes in their book. I borrowed my daughter's book until she asked for her book back.
Had to get my own. Most of all I love the stories in their book. I've cupcakes form this book and always
get great feedback.
I bought this book for only one recipe - the Vanilla cream cheese icing. It was worth it! I live in Maryland and someone brought cookies from Georgetown cupcake to a party. I HAD TO HAVE the recipe for this icing. It delivers. Anyone who has tasted this icing is in love! I have tried several cupcake recipes as well and I think I will be ending my relationship with doctored mixes and start making all of my cupcakes from scratch (and these recipes).
