I have been searching on here for some time now and cant find anything about a cupcake cake book. I am looking for a good book with lots of ideas and photos for them. I know they are popular in some places and would like to have a reference book about them to show customers. Anyone know of a cupcake cake book? Thank you for your help.

There are loads of them. Do a google search for "cupcake books", and you'll get lots of them listed.

Get on amazon! Read the reviews, as they are so helpful. I've got lindy smiths, and want hello cupcake, great inspiration.

I don't think she wants a cupcake book, she wants a cupcake cake book.

If what you want is a "cupcake cake" book with the detachable cupcakes that form one whole cake (is that it?) I haven't seen any.

For cupcakes ideas on decorations, this seems to have a lot of them.

as far as cupcake cake books i dont know but i do have several cupcake books that i love. hello cupcakes is one of them and so is the sequal what's up cupcake. these books are great for ideas and to make you think outside the box as far as other materials to cake with. another one is the martha stewart cupcake book. she has recipes and decorating ideas on this one that i just love. And for Halloween lily vanillis A Zombie Ate My Cupcake is a must have! hth

oh a silly phrase to miss! never seen a cupcake cake book. might be popular with joe public, but most cakers dont like doing them.
then again if you feel like writing the book, being first on the scene usually helps!

That is an idea if someone will make a cupcake cake book. I think those are great for children parties.

I'd love to see that, too... with patterns and tips for making patterns. I'm trying to start doing this and I'm having trouble with the planning and pattern part.

I bought one called Hello, Cupcake by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson.
I found it at Home Goods.

I used to have one of them, it was great!

As for cupcake cakes, maybe try using colouring in pages - usually pretty simple and it would give you an outline for your shape, plus act as a guide for icing too!

Brenda from brenscakes.com wrote what I think of as the original cupcake cake book. I think it was called "Cupcake Cakes for All Occasions". I think she was self published so I don't know if she still sells it but you could probably contact her through her website and ask.

I have this one: http://www.countrykitchensa.com/catalog/product.aspx?productId=629287

The two ladies who wrote it own Country Kitchens. this magazine/book has great icing recipes (including a wonderful cupcake glaze made with melted white chocolate!!!!) and some of the coolest ideas I've ever seen ,...... simple to make yet awesome to look at!

I highly recommend it!

Thank you, Nancy_TX for the link.

It looks like nobody has a "CUPCAKE CAKE" book. I hope Brenda is still selling hers. Do you own it? If you do, does it have plenty of layouts for cupcake cakes?

Mostly everyone does...it's easy to miss. I guess no sign of a cupcake cake book...someone should publish one!

The follow up to Hello, Cupcake is What's New Cupcake? It's a good one too!
