Starting this month, I will be sharing some of my favourite cookbooks on the blog.
Whenever I go to a book store or library, I always go straight to the Cooking section. Of course I am looking for ideas of what to make all the time, but sometimes, I just love to look at all the gorgeous food photos ! People say most of us eat with our eyes first and I couldn’t agree more. So this week, I have picked a few books that show us some amazing ideas and photos on cake or dessert decorating.
1. 1,000 Ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cookies & Cakes
– Sandra Salomony & Gina M. Brown
This is my number one favourite ! It showcases many beautiful cakes and cookies around the world for every occasion ! From Christmas, Valentine’s to Halloween, from weddings to kids’ birthdays. I have read this book many many times and I am still in love with it !
2. Sweet: Our Best Cupcakes, Cookies, Candy, and More
– Editors of Food Network Magazine
This one is my daughter’s favourite ! We both get amazed by the cakes that were dressed in disguised ! A hamburger, a gigantic candied apple, even spaghetti and meat balls ! This book also has many other recipes, including cookies, pies, cakes, bars, etc. It’s a great book for both beginners and more experienced bakers.
3. Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for more than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats
When I was first started baking, cake pop is one of the challenges I wasn’t sure if I could do. But it is actually quite simple. And you can be really creative with it. This book has many cute creations that you can easily follow. You can just use it as a basic reference and let your imagination be your guide.
You can find these great books on the Amazon website by clicking on the title of the books. I will receive a small compensation if you purchase the item.
