I love cupcakes, way more than cake. Cupcakes offer the perfect frosting-to-cake ratio, don’t you think? Plus, you can do so much more creatively with cupcakes and mini cupcakes. I just love them! Who doesn’t love cupcakes, right?
This fall, I was invited to the Portland, Oregon book launch party for the Trophy Cupcakes & Parties book launch. It was so much fun! And, I fell in LOVE with this book.
Which is why I am thrilled to be offering one Trophy Cupcakes & Parties book as today’s 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways prize!
Jennifer Shea, founder of the popular Trophy Cupcakes, is all about bringing joy and life to any celebration. Founded in 2007, Trophy Cupcakes has four festive locations in Washington. Based on the motto, “Make everyday a party,” Jennifer has built a business that focuses on bringing magic into the everyday, as she does in her book Trophy Cupcakes & Parties.
At her book launch event in Portland, Jennifer shared her story of launching Trophy Cupcakes. Then she taught us how to do some of Trophy’s famed cupcake decorating techniques.
We each got to try our hand at decorating cupcakes as well.
Now, I’m no Jennifer Shea or pro cupcake decorator, but I think I did all right… the best part was adding the gold and pink edible glitter to the cupcake for my daughter!
The Trophy Cupcakes & Parties book is absolutely stunning, from the gorgeous, thick outside cover to the inside pictures and details. Trust me: you will LOVE this book.
Some of my personal fave highlights of Trophy Cupcakes & Parties:
- Top 5 Essential Cupcake Tools
- The Trophy Frosting Techniques. I really enjoy how the book outlines the eight main frosting techniques used in Trophy Cupcake shops, accompanied by gorgeous photos.
- Sparkle: Engagement Party. Maybe it has to do with my current obsession with all things glitter, but I just love the tips & DIY ideas on throwing an engagement party full of sparkle!
- Baking: Cupcake Party. Such a fun idea for a birthday party for kids of all ages! (photo below is from this section)
After all of the fun tips and tricks of the trade, after all of the gorgeous different party ideas and how-to’s, the book includes the remainder of the recipes for the cupcakes and frostings that have been mentioned throughout the book. Chocolate Nutella Cupcakes? Don’t mind if I do! Espresso Buttercream? Yes, please!
As someone who loves to entertain and who loves all things delightfully DIY, I am absolutely smitten with the Trophy Cupcakes & Parties book. It’s ever so much fun. I seriously can’t get enough of it.
Now YOU have the chance to enjoy this book too!
