Congratulations to Megan Seling of the fabulous filled cupcake blog Bake It in a Cake for her cookbook deal! Bake It in a Cupcake: 50 Treats with a Surprise Inside is available for pre-order will be out in October from Andrews McMeel. We'll share more information about it as soon as we can, but what's below should be enough to entice you. (I know this cover is different than the one on the publisher's site, which I believe is an older version. This cover is the one on Amazon and, as far as I know, the final version. Plus I think a heart baked inside a cupcake is one of the cutest things ever!)
Here's the publisher's official description:
