Sweet, Savory, and Sometimes Boozy Cupcakes

Vanilla with rainbow sprinkles is boring.

This collection of 50 cupcake recipes by Alison Riede, the 2011 winner of the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, features some truly innovative flavours to offset the traditional sweetness of most desserts. She uses ingredients like rosewater, brie, bourbon, jalapeños, polenta, and lavender. The book is divided into six sections: tart, fruity, salty, chocolaty, spicy, and savory.
