Before I even had any experience with piping or literally any kind of decorating (and clearly before a dslr came into play) I got Hello Cupcake! for Christmas 2008. I've got to give it to them, the ideas are great and the directions are so easy to follow. The Oreo centers were piped with frosting in a plastic bag cut at the tip. Everyone wanted to know where I got the idea from and this picture honestly doesn't do it justice. If you want some cute ideas to bring as a present to a birthday or event the book is definitely it, especially now that its only about 10 dollars.
