Cupcake Confessions -review-
Dawn Eskins owner of Carolina cupcakery the full review of which can be located Carolina Cupcakery wrote a book called cupcake confessions. The book takes us through the great depression, mistakes and how people reacted to the cupcake craze it also includes recipes for the basic whipped cream and butter cream icing to Kailua. How Dawn came to use power tools to make cupcakes and what trials she went through in making a successful business.
Dawn grew up with successful parents and a grandmother who went through the great depression. She was told by most people how no one needed a bakery that specializes in cupcakes. The book is very relatable as you step through the trials and tribulations of setting up one of the first cupcake bakeries in the country.
Everything she says is very relatable and easy to connect with. It was a good read and included a lot of great recipes. Dawn even explains how she got into kosher and allergy friendly cupcakes and the unique issues that come with setting up bakeries that have no Gluten or are completely kosher.
On top of a completely enjoyable read, she also makes a mean gluten free cupcake. If you get a chance you should pick up a copy of this book. You can find a copy of her book available on Carolina cupcakery
