Lynlee’s {Sweet & Unique!} New Book + Giveaway

Sweet & Unique Cupcake Toppers by Lynlee North Beckett

When it comes to creative talents, some people have just got a gift – and Lynlee North Beckett is the perfect example! From miniature Disneyland rides to Mr. Potato Head pirates, her incredible fondant work has been popping up in the parties we’ve featured here at HWTM for years now, not to mention delighting party guests (and their hostesses!) all over the country.


Speaking of being delighted by Lynlee’s work, I’m excited to share some fun news today about a whole NEW way to enjoy it. Her brand new bookSweet & Unique Cupcake Toppers – just came out yesterday, and after flipping through it myself, I’m happy to share that it’s just as clever, innovative, and detailed as all of her fondant creations! Designed to help others recreate her thematic fondant decorations, the book contains over 80 tutorials that are broken down in great detail. Scroll down for more info + some (super cute!) sneak peeks from the book.

ADDED BONUS: I’m giving a copy away to one of our readers! To enter, simply leave any comment here by this Friday, April 11 at noon PST. We’ll pick a winner on Friday afternoon. Someone’s weekend will be off to a very sweet start! ;)
