The most decadent and delicious cupcakes imaginable, from Toronto's favorite bakery!
Raised as the youngest of five children in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Jean Blacklock has loved baking since she was a child. And while she found professional success as a lawyer and then as a wealth manager for a major bank, Jean always felt that her true career calling was to open a bakery. Luckily for cupcake addicts everywhere, the first Prairie Girl Bakery opened in downtown Toronto in 2011.
Focusing on classic techniques and ingredients--no shortening, mixes, frozen or stabilized products found here!--Prairie Girl took off at lightning speed. The vision is simple: exceptionally consistent, superior baking.
In Jean's first cookbook, Prairie Girl fans and cupcake aficionados alike will fall in love with these easy-to-bake, beautiful treats. Featuring all of Jean's everyday recipes such as Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing, Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese icing, and the ever-popular Red Velvet, you will also learn about pantry necessities and how to perfect the art of icing. Additionally, you'll get a glimpse into the various Treats of the Week--everything from fruity flavours such as Cherry Cheesecake to the decadent options such as Caramel-filled Chocolate to an adults-only Irish Cream and kid-friendly Peanut Butter and Jam. You'll also find both vegan and gluten-free options!
With over 50 recipes for both cupcakes and icings, The Prairie Girl Cupcake Cookbook
is a new classic for baking lovers everywhere.
