But I did enjoy sprinkles on cupcakes: colored sugar (the bigger crystals are better), colored coconut, and the silver balls as accents.

My favorite cupcakes as a child were the vanilla with buttercream frosting with lots of pretty sprinkles.

I follow your blog everyday Congratulations!!!
Now that I have my own children, we bake cupcakes and our favorites are chocolate and banana. I have also taught my 10 yr old daughter how to make MMF (marshmallow fondant) from scratch and decorate cupcakes with it. This is a bonding time for us and what a joy it is to do it with her. I have been waiting for this book so that we can get new ideas to play with. Elisa's creations are work of art. She is marvelous.
