You will be hard pressed to find a more magical and exciting than Sweet! Celebrations, the brand new, highly anticipated recipe book by creator and host of online baking show My Cupcake Addiction, Elise Strachan.
Strachan divides the book up into party themes, including recipes for a rustic wedding, backyard barbecue, holiday themed party, elegant afternoon tea and many more.

Each recipe is packed with creativity, imagination and love, showcasing only the best cakes and goodies Elise can offer. There are even some DIY projects and styling tips to add an extra spark to each theme.
Thought has been put into every themed section, with exquisite photography providing all the inspiration you need.
My Cupcake Addiction has become and online sensation with 2.8 million YouTube subscribers, 4.8 million Facebook followers, almost a million Instagram followers and 43,000 Twitter followers. Now that's quite an audience!
As a child, Elise used her young entrepreneurial skills to spend weekends baking slices, cakes and cupcakes to satisfy her sweet tooth.
She moved to Brisbane from New Zealand at the age of 5, travelled the world as a flight attendant, and now divides her time between the Gold Coast, Los Angeles and New York.
Elise began her cupcake career by setting up beachfront market stalls in Cronulla, then Surfers Paradise, filling them with hundreds of ornate homemade cupcakes, continually selling out.
In 2011, Elise posted a YouTube video tutorial making Cookie monster cupcakes, and from there, her channel has grown into a dynamic and engaged online community.
Her passion on the screen has been translated to print, with her designs and creations just as innovative and creative as they always have been. She is constantly experimenting with cupcake flavours, designs and decorations, and her dedication shines through the pages of the book.
She even offers little tips and tricks to help you on the way to becoming a master baker, no matter your skill level.
