BRUNCH WITH BINGO: BIG BOOK OF CUPCAKES - A GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S
"BRUNCH WITH BINGO DAY"
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THIS SUNDAY'S
   BRUNCH BOOK CHOICE IS.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED 
BIG BOOK OF CUPCAKES
Presented by Southern Living
BY JAN MOON



ABOUT THE BOOK:
It's official: The cupcake craze has taken the world by storm. No longer are cupcakes solely for children-these handheld treats now must pass muster with taste-discriminating adults equally ravenous for the little frosted jewels. 
Big Book of Cupcakes sets a new standard with recipes for cupcakes that actually taste as great as they look. In addition to the traditional favorite flavors everyone craves, such as red velvet and carrot cake, this book offers fun, new flavor twists like Maple Bacon and Caramel Sea Salt Mocha, as well as easy decorating and serving ideas, from classic to creative. 
In this book, which is organized by season and the events readers want to celebrate with home-baked cupcakes-from New Years to Christmas, birthdays to "just-craving" days-author and cupcake-bakery owner Jan Moon shares her secrets and most requested recipes. Whether you're making the perfect batch of cupcakes for a child's birthday party or satisfying a very adult comfort-food craving, the nostalgic treats that fill this book are sure to delight and surprise. Plus, Jan's creative tips on how to serve and display cupcakes for parties are sure to be crowd-pleasers. 
With more than 10 years of experience honing her craft in the Test Kitchens of Southern Living magazine, Jan Moon has embarked on a venture of her own and opened a bakery in Birmingham, Alabama. In addition to wedding cakes and custommade treats, Dreamcakes Bakery specializes in delectable cupcakes, and Jan's unique creations keep her loyal customers coming back for more.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jan has been creating wedding cakes for brides & grooms in the Birmingham area for over 20 years.  After getting her degree from the University of Alabama, Jan worked in the test kitchens of Southern Living & Cooking Light before striking out on her own with Dreamcakes.  She lives in Birmingham with her husband, Gary.  They have three children: Ben, a manager at the McWane Science Center; Katie, her partner & Creative Director at Dreamcakes; & Jackson, a firefighter.  She is the proud Gigi of Holland Moon & a diehard fan of Brett Favre.

This sounds like a very interesting cookbook to add to my collection. I love making cupcakes since then you have individual servings already to go. I like that she has recipes in the book for all occasions and no occasion at all. I couldn't watch the video since sound is not working on my computer at the moment and son isn't home to fix it. I hope to come back and watch as soon as it's fixed.

I would love to win a copy of this cookbook. That Caramel Sea Salt Mocha one is right up my alley. I love sweet and salty together. I have been having fun watching all the cupcake shows on tv this year with my daughter and we have been dabbling in making cupcakes at home this summer. It's been fun even when they don't turn out so well. Thanks for offering this wonderful book!

The video is fantastic! I loved hearing from Jan and Katie about the Cupcake business and their shop. I think Jan is right that we eat with our eyes first. They sure applied that idea to their cupcakes...my moth was watering just looking at some of them! Jan is very talented, Katie, too. I would love to win this book and try my hand at creating some of their great cupcakes!

Thank you for this giveaway!
