“The book is all cupcake recipes made with cake mixes, which makes it easy and simple for everyone, no matter their skill level,” Early said in a release. The book includes more than 70 recipes and a section on techniques for filling and decorating cupcakes.

“I was born and raised in Lake Oswego and graduated from Lakeridge High School,” she said. “I first started baking in high school and the Pacers were my first taste testers. Even when I ran for student government I ran on a theme of baking: ‘Choose the sweetest choice’ and ‘Baking up success.’”

Early recently earned a degree in broadcast journalism from Brigham Young University. She is writing more cookbooks as she loves teaching others to bake.

“Your Cup of Cake” is available online from Amazon.com, Dessert Books and through publisher Covenant Communications at covenant-lds.com.
