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!

Jean Blacklock's book is based on the philosophy of living life, one cupcake at a time. Her recipes are classic with a few twists. A couple of the more interesting flavours include Cinnamon Roll and Carrot Maple cupcakes. For the kid at heart, her choices were chocolate fudge sundae and neapolitan cupcakes. For those who are vegan, she has cupcake and icing recipes.
