Designed for cupcake lovers who are sick and tired of the same-old, play-it-safe options, Post Punk Cupcakes, written by the master chefs of Chicago's popular Bleeding Heart Bakery, shows inspired bakers how to create delicious alternatives that will rock their guests. Mixing unusual ingredients that are as daring as they are delicious, this book offers recipes for everything from a Vegan S'more cupcake that combines chocolate, graham cracker, and organic marshmallows to The Elvis, a peanut-butter-and-bacon concoction inspired by "The King's" favorite sandwich. No cupcake is complete without decoration, so the authors show how to apply classic French pastry chef techniques to creatively unconventional themes — with spectacular results. With Post Punk Cupcakes, the hip hostess can surprise and impress fun-loving partygoers with cupcakes like Wasabi White Chocolate, Love Kills Dark Chocolate Whiskey, or The Mojito (topped with rum-syrup-vanilla-bean frosting, crystallized ginger, and fresh mint). With over 100 options, there are themed cakes for everyone from tough "gurls" looking for tattooed and pierced cupcakes to cool moms making Zombie Brain Cakes for their 10-year-old son's birthday party.
