book I like: Sprinkle Bakes

Sprinkle Bakes cover

Summer hasn’t quite arrived here yet but this book has been brightening my overcast afternoons. I’ve been a devoted reader of the Sprinkle Bakes site for ages and am completely delighted by her book: Sprinkle Bakes: Dessert Recipes to Inspire Your Inner Artist. It’s filled with basic recipes and instructions to for incredibly charming and creative desserts. I am completely in love with everything inside.

The instructions are all clearly photographed and explained so you can feel like a rock star while you’re working.

The projects are all so cheerful and unexpected. She provides templates in the back of the book for those things which are a bit more complicated.

I am so very in love with these glittery snow apples. I’m going to make these the moment leaves start falling off the trees.

    Now those are creative ideas! Brilliant way of taking the same-old, same-old and updating them with a new twist. Love the mehndi cookies.

    Fabulous find! I love this, but I know a friend who will love it more and she is getting a little hard to buy for – this will be the perfect gift!
