#SBPT A Sweet Sunday

Happy Sunday, Y’all! For today’s #SBPT post Tay and I have concocted up something extra sweet! We decided to make cupcakes based off of some of our favorite reads!
My cupcakes definitely didn’t picture as well as I would’ve like but hey! They were both still delicious and I think they captured the essence of both books.  

For my Anna Dressed in Blood cupcake, I made a black velvet batter with a cherry pie center, & buttercream frosting splattered with "blood"(cherry pie filling!) on top!

For my Lies You Never Told Me cupcake I used the same black velvet batter, but this time I made a "fiery" cinnamon cream cheese frosting! 

Tay's Treats

I had so much fun whipping up these bookish bakes. Thanks for everyone who helped me decide which books to serve as my inspiration. I definitely want to bake bookish cupcakes again soon, and play more with flavors and different frostings!

IMG_3381Starfish by Akemi Dawn BowmanFor this poignant contemporary novel about art and family, I baked a fluffy vanilla cupcake dyed two shades of purple and topped with vanilla buttercream and purple and blue sugar crystal sprinkles!

The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik by David Arnold For this twisty, surreal novel about a boy looking for an alternate trajectory in life, I baked a vibrant and fun vanilla cupcake dyed pink, yellow, green, bright blue and purple, topped with vanilla buttercream frosting and a neon rainbow of sugar crystal sprinkles!

IMG_3374Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand For this feminist, twisty thriller, I baked a rich chocolate cupcake with a hidden surprise of a layer of blood red vanilla cake on the bottom topped with vanilla buttercream frosting and green and yellow sugar crystal sprinkles!

IMG_3385Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd For this funky Parisian fantasy book filled with witches, goblins and more I baked a chocolate cupcake with a pop of white vanilla cake on the bottom, topped with vanilla buttercream and red sugar crystals!

What book is so sweet you'd like to see it made into a treat?

  1. Ok, you made those cupcakes? They are fantastic! And you have two things I love so much in one place - books and cupcakes. How fun!
