Cupcakes and cake pops in middle grade novel Confectionately Yours: Takes the Cake!

Lisa Papademetriou serves up her second in the Confectionately Yours series with Confectionately Yours: Taking the Cake! which is also available as an ebook for Kindle or Nook. Hayley has to juggle whether to spend Thanksgiving with her mom or her dad, while making peace with the fact that her former best friend, Artie (a girl), now looks down on her. Baking helps solve her problems (often—one funny plotline involves her best friend leaving a secret admirer cupcake for her crush), and here's what she bakes; you can find the recipes in the book: modern carrot cake cupcakes with spiced cream cheese frosting, rain forest cupcakes with peanut butter butterscotch frosting, cornbread cupcakes, King Kong cupcakes (banana coconut macadamia nut cupcakes), coconut macaroon cake balls with white chocolate frosting, gingered pumpkin cupcakes with ginger cream cheese frosting and chocolate chip cookie cupcakes.

Peanut butter butterscotch frosting? I'm all weak in the knees at the thought of it! Thanks for the info and links!
