App Description

— An Apple Editors' Choice pick! —

Cupcake Lovers: Prepare to be amazed. Elegant butterflies, darling ducks, and playful penguins are just a few of the cupcake projects contained in the Hello Cupcake! app. Once you start exploring you won’t be able to stop — or stop smiling.

Based on the New York Times bestselling series of Hello, Cupcake! books, this app will charm you with its stop-motion animations. And when you’re ready to decorate cupcakes, the app makes it easy with how-to videos; detailed step-by-step instructions with stop-action photographs that take you through the process; and voice-overs that give you insider tips. Decorating cupcakes has never been so easy nor so much fun!

Candies and snacks are the key to making decorating easy. Apart from that, all you need are frosting, a ziplock bag, and the simple cupcake recipe included in the app. Time to gather your friends and have a cupcaking party, or just amaze them with the results.

Optimized for the iPhone and iPad, the app includes high-resolution retina-quality graphics for both. A large number of videos, high-resolution images, and audio clips are provided to guide you in your cupcake-making. With an app this chock-full of features, please be patient with the download process, as these materials increase its size.

With your initial app purchase, you’ll receive 10 cupcake projects. Additional projects are available to be purchased within the app, with more to come. Each project contains:

• a fanciful animation made entirely of edibles
• an illustrated ingredients list
• step-by-step instructions accompanied by hundreds of stop-action photographs
• voice-overs that provide useful hints
• relevant cupcaking-technique videos

Karen Tack, called “The Cake Whisperer” by Gourmet magazine, and Alan Richardson, dubbed “the McGyver of Candy,” are America's favorite cupcaking duo—and the creative force behind Hello, Cupcake! Their books have been featured on many national television programs including Today and The Martha Stewart Show.

Hello Cupcake displays metric measurements in metric-using countries.
