Brooklyn-based bakers Matt and Allison Robicelli are known for turning out some awesome cupcakes, brownies, and whoopie pies, with a generous serving of no-nonsense sass on the side.
Now, they’re bringing all that to the people in their new cookbook, Robicelli’s: A Love Story, with Cupcakes: With 50 Decidedly Grown-Up Recipes. Read their interview with Food Republic for more about the book and some delightful Robicelli witticisms. And they definitely deserve some sort of award for the best cookbook promo video, which is worth every second of watching above. Here’s some other stuff we loved today:
