Sugar Rebels is the book that fans of The Scran Line and its host and creator Nick Makrides have been waiting for. Nick's signature delicious and sometimes outrageous cupcakes, macarons and cakes all feature - including favourites and many new recipes.

Sugar Rebels also presents the story of The Scran Line and Nick's path to success as a YouTube star and role model for the LGBTQI community. It reflects his distinct approach to colour and design—and life. Be prepared for a wild ride. After all, Nick was the one who taught us how to make cupcakes glow in the dark.

A taste of what's inside

Neapolitan cupcakes

Eat layer by layer to keep the flavours separate, or bite straight in for a chocolate-vanilla-strawberry jumbled sensation.

Tiramisu cupcakes

The combination of vanilla cake, strong coffee and rich mascarpone cream-cheese frosting with a hint of chocolate will give you some serious food-coma vibes.

Paris Brest cupcakes

This French pastry filled with crème pâtissière is traditionally about the size of a dinner plate, but here it is in cupcake form.
