I really love cookbooks and I love looking at them even more. I can look through cookbooks for hours! I mean delicious sounding recipes and beautiful pictures but no calories! I really liked the cover photo on this book as it looked good enough to eat so I simply had to get this book.
A few of the recipes sound a little daunting, and you might need to be a little bit more advanced as a baker, but the photos and detailed instructions really help. It is packed with 9 different sections of recipes in a variety of different levels of difficulty. The sections in the book are:
Custards and Creamy Desserts
Eggs and Meringue
Cakes, Cupcakes, Brownies and Muffins
Cookies, Tea Cakes and Biscuits
Tarts, Cobblers and Crisps
Glazes, Frostings, Fillings and Sauces
Building a Balanced Dessert
What I enjoyed most was that everything is beautifully photographed. There are tons of pictures showing you the beautiful results of each recipe which is amazing and helpful when you're trying to make a recipe. The pictures is what really makes me like this cookbook!
My most favorite section of recipes is the Caramel section. There are several recipes that I'm looking forward to trying, such as the Caramel Pudding, Salted Caramels, Smack Caramel Corn and the Spreadable Caramel. I plan on making most of these this Holiday season. I think they will be well liked by my family as they are also Caramel lovers.
