Little Cakes from the Whimsical Bakehouse: Cupcakes, Small Cakes, Muffins, and Other Mini Treats - Kaye Hansen, Liv Hansen I don't think I've actually made anything from this book, but everything in here is adorable, the pictures are great, and it's one of my favorite places to turn for inspiration. Unfortunately, many of the cakes require specialty pans or other equipment, and some appear to be very fussy and difficult (and I'm speaking as someone who regularly makes multiple-page recipes that use every pan in the house just for fun). There are some valuable techniques explained in these pages, though - the section with instructions on how to make white chocolate decorations is especially useful.
