More About the Author

Alice Arndell is a self-taught home baking expert who has loved both the "science" and the "art" of baking for as long as she can remember. Alice was a finalist on season three of Chelsea New Zealand's Hottest Home Baker, published her first book Alice in Bakingland: delicious, decadant and daring last year (based on the popular blog of the same name) and has recently signed on to New Zealand's top food magazine, Cuisine, as the baking contributor.
Her second book "Bake Me Home" is due to be published in April 2015.
Being a bit of a "Martha Stewart" sort (hopefully her degree in Criminiology helps her avoid jail time!), Alice can also be found gluing her fingers together as she creates craft and styling projects in her role as craft editor for New Zealand Woman's Weekly.
Alice lives in a house that manages to smell of both cake and hot glue in the small South Wairarapa town of Martinborough (in New Zealalnd) with her husband Shane, who is a Naval Officer, and her 4 1/2 year old daughter Isobel - who loves nothing better than licking the baking bowls clean!

I am not a great baker, things often fail for me. Every single recipe I have tried in this beautiful book have not only worked but exceeded my expectations. Fantastic recipes and beautifully shot photos, a real must have!

Here are some of the lovely recipes
Oaty Apricot & Chocolate cookies (these are a must, so delicious)
Lemon & Poppy seed biscuits
Doughnut muffins
Raspberry & Chocolate Tart
Peanut butter & Caramel slice
Chocolate & Bacon cupcakes

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Shropshire mother on 6 Sept. 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book based on the first review and because I liked the title! It is a very elegant book with lovely pictures, some interesting recipes and informative tips. I would have rated it higher but for the fact that the author is from New Zealand which can make problems for UK readers. Firstly the measurements are in cups. This doesn't matter so much when the recipe uses a whole cup but many of these need 2/3 or. 3/4 of a cup and I find it difficult to measure accurately. Anathema to a baker used to digital scales! Also some of the ingredients are unusual. I still don't know what kumara is but perhaps someone who has been to New Zealand will enlighten me. So whilst it is a beautiful book written by a lady who seems to have participated in a Great New Zealand Bake off type competition I am not sure that it would be enjoyed by everyone in the UK
I have now discovered that kumara is another word for sweet potato!

Format: Hardcover
Alice Arndell is a mother and home baker from New Zealand. From what I have read about her, she understands perfectly that baking is a science, and that decorating is an art. She understands that baking is not only about providing a sweet treat for your family, but can be cathartic for the baker too.

This book is very appealing to the eye. The cover image displays a fine vintage tea set, plates laden with goodies, and a hand reaching for an irresistible morsel. The photos within are lovely and bright, with a fashionable retro style in soft pastel tones. It is such a pretty book. I am very pleased to say that each recipe contains at least one photo, and this is a big plus in my opinion.
The recipes are largely sweet, which is absolutely fine by me. There are a few savoury recipes included, and even a few surprising savoury ingredients included in the sweet recipes. A lot of the recipes are classics that you will recognise, but I think some that are regional to New Zealand, as the author includes recipes from friends and family.

The recipes have been split into chapters of intriguing titles: Delicious, Decadent, and Daring. These are followed by a section of Hints & Tips, where the author discusses ingredients and essential equipment. There is a page of conversions between metric and imperial for weights and measures. The book ends with a useful A-Z index of the recipes.

There are some very well illustrated and clearly written tutorials on some basic techniques. I think that because of this the book would be appealing to novices, although an experienced baker can enjoy the delicious recipes within too. There are some detailed photo tutorials on some of the basic skills, and each recipe contains a handy tip.
