Who doesn't like sweets? I know I do, but what I love most is making them. It can be challenging, but rewarding if you stick with learning how to decorate them properly. Insert The Sweetapolita Bake Book by Rosie Alyea.
It is chock full of photos (75!) on ways to decorate cakes and cookies. It tells you every single thing you need to create a beautiful artful masterpiece that is fully edible of course. From edible markers, to gold leaf, there are so many things we can use to decorate our desserts.
My favorite part of this book is the recipes for cakes from scratch. Store bought cakes are good, and pre-made cake mixes are good, but there's a feeling of overwhelming accomplishment when we can make a cake from start to finish all by ourselves! Don't you think?
Another fun thing about this particular book is the recipe for making your own sprinkles. Why in the world did I never think of that?!
If you want to create your own masterpiece, you need this book. The instructions are simple and easy to follow, and the pictures are a great help too. If you would like a bit more info on the book, click here! More infor on the Author? Click here!
