Book of the week: The Dollop Book of Frosting. I was very excited about this cookbook when it first came out, as you may remember from my guest post featuring an excerpt. For no particular reason it had been a while since I'd glanced through, but people, this book is worth your time. If you love frosting and consider cupcakes a vehicle for the sweet stuff, this book is FOR YOU. The author is even more avid a frosting-follower than me, and that is saying a lot!
