John Green & ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ Get a Cupcake

BookExpo America (BEA) and Huffington Post Books have launched the “Have Your (Cup)Cake & Read it Too” video series.

Each month, a different book will be profiled and a cupcake recipe (developed specifically as a tribute to that book) will be shared. Huffington Post Books editor Zoë Triska and BookBliss.com blogger Cassandra Lobo star in these videos.

The organizers recently released their second installment with The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. To accompany the book, Lobo created a lemon cupcake topped with champagne frosting, chocolate hazelnut spread, and rainbow star sprinkles. Follow this link to access the recipe. We’ve embedded the full episode above–what do you think?

The premiere video covered Life of Pi by Yann Martel and showcased a tiger-themed chocolate cupcake. This dessert treat contains cookie biscuit frosting, chocolate ganache, and French vanilla cake swirls.
