 Sugarlicious cover

You all know how much I love to share things that excite me right?  Well, there’s no holding back the excitement today!! Meghan Mountford, author of one of my favorite cookie decorating books and the creative brain behind The Decorated Cookie and editor of Edible Crafts at Craft Gossip, has just released her second book, Sugarlicious, expanding her cookie craft to cupcakes, cakes and other sweet treats.

Meaghan is one of those bakers who takes cute treats to a whole new level.  Sugarlicous is packed with 200 pages of adorable edible art, beautiful color photos and illustrated step-by-step directions for both the novice and seasoned bakers.   The book includes cookies, marshmallows, cupcakes, cakes, cake pops, petits fours and candy clay.

Sugarlicious Treats

You’ll learn to put sweets on sticks, color icing and frosting, pipe with a decorating bag, make fondant decorations, use edible writers and icing sheets, paint and stamp with food coloring, decorate with candies and sprinkles, and so much more. Froggy cupcakes, milkshake cake pops, mustache and bow tie cookie pops, sparkly marshmallows, a lawn ornament cake and pretty painted petits fours are just a tiny sampling of what’s inside.

  1. My favorite baked goody from her site was the babycakes donut maker post. I’ve been wanting to tryout that machine!

  2. The cutest dessert/treat I ever made… none, really. The cutest one I *want* to make… when my brothers and I were young children, my mom made these “Owl Cookies”: a roll cookie with two kinds of dough, decorated with chocolate chips for eyes and a cashew nut for a beak. They were always a special treat, and I’ve yet to really try to do my mom justice by making them as good as she does!

  3. I love all the things Meghan does with food writer pens and marshmallows. It’s so simple, but makes such a cute and easy food craft! 🙂

  12. The cutests thing/my favorite thing that I’ve made-so far- would have to be a volcano cake. It had a votive holder in the center, and I put dry ice in it so the volcano smoked during the whole party. The kids LOVED it 🙂

  13. I think my cutest dessert was cakes baked in clay pots with dirt and gummy worms flowers and leaves tied with ribbon to to cute- Oh I want to win so bad-hope I do

    The cutest dessert I’ve made was for my niece’s 2nd birthday. I made a white, 2 layer cake with vanilla pudding in the middle and made it a Toopy and Binoo cake. As soon as she saw her cake she yelled “AUNTIE!!! TOOPY, BINOO!” she was so excited! It was the best feeling in the world seeing her so happy and excited. My Dad actually just saw a picture of the cake a few weeks ago because he wasn’t able to make it to her party because he had to work… he thought I bought it lol!

    Happy Baking! 🙂

  27. 30+ years ago I ran out of cupcake liners the NIGHT BEFORE 30 cupcakes were needed for my son’s class. The only sub I could find in the cupboard was flat-ended ice cream cones. I filled them up 1/2 way and baked them the same time as the “papered” cupcakes. When they cooled I frosted them and they looked like an ice cream cone! I’ve been making them like that ever since.

  28. I love anything on a “stick” so my favorite is the S’mores on a stick! What a great idea and no messy hands!
