Hello Cupcake!

By Culinate, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


— An Apple Editors' Choice pick! —

Cupcake Lovers: Prepare to be amazed. Elegant butterflies, darling ducks, and playful penguins are just a few of the cupcake projects contained in the Hello Cupcake! app. Once you start exploring you won’t be able to stop — or stop smiling.

Based on the New York Times bestselling series of Hello, Cupcake! books, this app will charm you with its stop-motion animations. And when you’re ready to decorate cupcakes, the app makes it easy with how-to videos; detailed step-by-step instructions with stop-action photographs that take you through the process; and voice-overs that give you insider tips. Decorating cupcakes has never been so easy nor so much fun!

Candies and snacks are the key to making decorating easy. Apart from that, all you need are frosting, a ziplock bag, and the simple cupcake recipe included in the app. Time to gather your friends and have a cupcaking party, or just amaze them with the results.

Optimized for the iPhone and iPad, the app includes high-resolution retina-quality graphics for both. A large number of videos, high-resolution images, and audio clips are provided to guide you in your cupcake-making. With an app this chock-full of features, please be patient with the download process, as these materials increase its size.

With your initial app purchase, you’ll receive 10 cupcake projects. Additional projects are available to be purchased within the app, with more to come. Each project contains:

• a fanciful animation made entirely of edibles
• an illustrated ingredients list
• step-by-step instructions accompanied by hundreds of stop-action photographs
• voice-overs that provide useful hints
• relevant cupcaking-technique videos

Karen Tack, called “The Cake Whisperer” by Gourmet magazine, and Alan Richardson, dubbed “the McGyver of Candy,” are America's favorite cupcaking duo—and the creative force behind Hello, Cupcake! Their books have been featured on many national television programs including Today and The Martha Stewart Show.

Hello Cupcake displays metric measurements in metric-using countries.

Praise for the books:


“A sweet treat for cupcake fans.”

   — Family Circle

“What’s New Cupcake? makes pastry artists out of even the most butterfingered parents. The beautiful photos and easy-to-follow directions help even the cake-mix challenged create cupcakes that look like lattice pies and critters from ducks to moose to flamingos.”

   — Associated Press

“….like magicians Penn and Teller, the pair [Karen and Alan] delight in sharing the tricks of their trade.”

   — The Denver Post

"Discover ways to make cupcaking so much easier and even more fun!"

Customer Reviews


I have always been amazed by the cupcake cretinous in Hello Cupcake & was pumped to see an app allowing the ability to dive further into the pages of the books! The 99 cent in app purchases for additional designs is very well worth it for the additional 2 cupcakes you get. After all, when purchasing the books you will spend around $20! I have no issues with the app running properly every time I open it & certainly suggest it to anyone that loves baking! You don't need any special supplies to make these cupcakes, you probably have everything in your kitchen already with the exception of maybe some of the candy/cookies. If you love baking, this app deserves a special place on your device!

🐥Very sweet!🐥

🐣Oh how precious indeed! My only small complaint is that I wish for the 99 cents we could have a full tin of 6! Think about it because usually full apps only cost 99 cents, and for your loyal followers I think it would be nice, honest, and appreciated! Most businesses appreciate their customers and to keep them coming back and to keep their business they try to give them the best deal possible, so maybe rethink how to show your loyal group a way to get more for their money! Just a thought, if this happens I would be delighted to continue my business with you! Of course though you still deserve 5 stars! Adorable couple with an adorable app!🐣


I never care to rate an app. Only when something is extremely terrible, or quite outstanding do I want to take the time to express my feelings on the app. This is very cute, very well put together, and very simple for anyone to do. That's what I love about this so much. I always say, I refuse to pay for any apps on my phone. This may actually be the first time I buy something. Maybe. I love that they put together something so well, and it seems that they really cared about what they're doing. Well done! 👌😊🍰
