"Sheryl Berk and her nine-year-old daughter, Carrie, have cooked up a delightful new series sure to be a treat." - New York Family
About the Author
New York Times bestselling co-author of Soul Surfer, SHERYL BERK is the founding editor in chief of Life & Style Weekly as well as a contributor to InStyle, Martha Stewart, and other publications. Her nine-year-old daughter, CARRIE, a cupcake connoisseur, cooked up the idea for the TLC series in second grade. Together, they have invented dozens of crazy cupcakes recipes in their NYC kitchen (can you say "Purple Velvet?") and have the frosting stains on the ceiling to prove it.

Reasons to Read:
1.Kylie as a well-rounded character:
Judging from the cover, you'd figure that Kylie is a really girly girl whose main interests are mostly about fashion, makeup, and baking. She has a bit of a unique twist, though. She is a huge fan of monster movies. I thought that this put a nice, fresh twist on her personality. She was constantly making references to the movies themselves, which I found to be quite amusing. I also found her to be very likable. She isn't just a victim to bullying who sobs about it. She tries to make friends, but it just never seems to work out for her.
2.The Cupcake Club:
I think that this is one of the best ideas for a club ever. I mean, I would totally join this club if it was available at my school! Nevertheless, I liked the role that it had to play in the story. I liked how it brought together all the main characters, making them form a strong friendship. I thought that this was a unique club idea in a novel, and something I could really relate to.
On top of that, there are cupcake recipes in the back of the book. Pretty awesome, right? I haven't tried any of them out yet, but I'm hoping to do that soon!
I did find that I rolled by eyes at the mean girl, Meredith. I really disliked her, she just seemed really annoying and kind of lame without any real reason or motivations.Read more ›

I loved reading about all of the successes and failures the club had while baking. At first you get to see them make the worst cupcakes and then before you know it, they are making cupcakes that people are buying and they are getting more orders they can't even handle. I loved the "Batter Butt Dance"...had me cracking up!
This book is packed with baking tips and tricks that are perfect for a younger crowd...or even brand new bakers. The recipes that are included at the back of the book are simple to follow. The Berks also include a list of tips for the new cupcake baker that I found to be helpful.
One day when I was reading this book at park, a little girl came up to me and asked me about it! Obviously the cover is eye catching to the right audience! My four-year-old is even jealous of my book!
