The Cupcake Theory by Clara Lee: Spotlight and Review


Title:  The Cupcake Theory

Author:  Clara Lee

Published: October 1st, 2013 by CLÚ Press

Page Count:  64 pages with illustrations

Genre:  Self-Help, Relationships

Synopsis: “THE CUPCAKE THEORY” is a powerful and encouraging book of wisdom, by Korean-American author, entertainer, consultant, and entrepreneur Clara Lee, that will empower and help women understand how they can best flourish in romantic relationships. Through using a charming analogy of the relationship between the cake and the frosting of cupcakes, the book
 reinforces concepts of balancing one’s own self-awareness and needs with the desire for fulfilling romantic relationships.

“It doesn’t matter how great and lavish your frosting is… because that is not what makes you who you are,” explains Lee, regarding her theory. “What makes you who you are, is you—the cupcake without all the decorations and glitz. Be whole. Be solid. Be beautiful. BE YOU!”

This was a quick, cute read that playfully reminds us that happiness comes from believing in oneself and realizing that one’s self-image and self-perception are the most important aspects of achieving and maintaining a happy, contented persona.
There is not anything that is really mind-boggling in this little book, but it is uniquely conceptualized and explained in a breezy, conversational manner.  Loaded with illustrations, this common-sense guide mentions several different types of relationships and how you need to always remain true to yourself as a unique individual – bringing your own beautiful personality and core beliefs into the partnership.
I would have liked for the author to delve more deeply into the various types of relationships, and provide additional insights into the causes and effects of our attitudes and perceptions. Some additional suggestions about minimizing negative behaviors while focusing on recognizing, capitalizing on, and expanding our individual strengths could have been beneficial, as well.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
