In our world, delicious trumps cute, especially when it’s cute for cute’s sake. And yet, the new book Hello, Cupcake! features such adorable and easy to make creations that we fell in love.

Take those westies on the cover for example. Most of the design is just frosting, with a large marshmallow for the muzzle, a mini marshmallow clipped in half for the ears, a flattened Starburst for the tongue, and a chocolate-covered sunflower seed for the nose. Since the frosting isn’t precise, you don’t need to have a lot of skills to make your friends ooh and ah.

All of the cupcakes are made with ingredients you can find at the supermarket and the gas station. The book suggests that you use a boxed cake mix and canned frosting, but we know that sometimes scratch can beat the box.

We suspect the only hard part about these cupcakes is the eating! We’d bet that some of your guests would declare them too cute to eat, while others would end up scraping off most of the decorations to avoid an overly sweet bite.

What do you think? Terribly cute or sickeningly sweet?
