F09629 - "Cupcakes, Cookies, & Pie, Oh My!" cookbook by Tack&Richardson
I loved the book, so many cute ideas. I took it to work to show everyone!!!
This was a gift I purchased for my sister - the cook in the family! First, it is a great gift idea as I was so impressed at how beautiful and colorful the book is. It is full of pictures, instructions are easy to follow. I expected a small flimsy book, but this is substantial. There are so many ideas, it is a must for any baker or cookbook collector. Because it is so attractive and full of wonderful recipes and ideas, I am going to purchase two more to have on hand for gifts.
I see why people are concerned about the time involved and the kind of things they need to have or buy to actually produce some of these recipes. But that doesn't concern me. I love a challenge and buying a few extra things once in awhile and spending a little longer amount of time to create something fantastically cute, it's well worth it when you see the smile on the faces of kids and adults as they actually get to participate in eating those wonderful creations. Besides, all the recipes are not so complicated. Keep in mind, you have an imagination... use it. Substitute something else in place of what you cannot afford or just don't want to use. Make a few changes and create your own unique treat.
WOW!!!!!!! Great book
I have taught cake decorating for years and made many birthday, special occasion, and wedding cakes. I am always looking for new ways to make people smile and this book sure made me smile! I will be making many of the cute cakes in this book. Thanks for such a fun book.
GREAT GIFT IDEA11
This was a gift for my daughter-in-law who is very creative with her cakes and treats. She loves it! She is now elected to make birthday cakes for all the family!!
Disappointed in this book!
I purchased this book because of the on air presentations. They looked easy enough to make, but once I read the book, I found them to be more involved than I expected. I expected to use everyday food items found around the house (ie: marshmallows, peanuts, etc). If you add up the costs of every item required to make & decorate these items, it is very costly. If you plan on using this book on a regular basis it may be of use & cost efficient to purchase all the needed items in bulk. For those who only planned on making things on a not so regular basis I think you are better off buying them at the bakery. I will not use this book, and will give it to Culinary Arts student who just graduated.
I'm so happy I got this cookbook, since it's the third of the series and I have the other two I just had to have it. It's just as cute and imaginative as the others. I highly recommend this whimsical cookbook!
From the way this was shown on QVC, it looked really fun to do. However, the instructions are more complicated and the ingredients are extensive for some of the recipes. I was hoping to do these with my granddaughter but it would have only fustrated both of us.
BEST COOKBOOK BY FAR
This book is awesome!! Fabulous!!!!! Very creative ideals in it. I cant wait to try the shoe for my sisters Birthday. So many cute ideals and it tells you where you can purchase the items from, gives name and addresses as well as email addresses of the companys. its every day candy that you have easy access to and the pictures are large enough where you can see the details in them.......love this book so much i dont want anyone to touch it. I love my cookbooks have a huge collection and i do get my books and sit down a study them page by page. Great job!!!!! Cant wait until the next book comes out, i do have the first one an i can tell you with this one it gets even better!!!!
Love this book...eye candy for the cook
I can sit and look through this book for hours. It has the cutesy things. My kids love to make these things. Getting some of the ingredients locally can be a challenge, but they do give sources for everything. You can look very professional with little effort.
I was so happy to receive my cookbook until I started looking at the recipes,from my book on page 24 until page 48,then start again page 24 until 48 they are repeated recipes so Im thinking if I should ask for a replacement or not,very disappointed...this is my first negative review and thats why the 1 starts, but the book is adorable if it was completed...I got almost 20 repeated recipes...
