This review is from: Eat Me!: The Stupendous, Self-Raising World of Cupcakes and Bakes According to Cookie Girl (Hardcover)
Lovely book with really sumptuous photographs in a sort of ethereal 'Midsummer Nights Dream' vein, of Dita Von-Teese lookalike author, Xanthe, and her delightful culinary creations.
Alongside the standard fare of vanilla cupcakes and chocolate cookies are more imaginative recipes such as toffee apple cupcakes and 99-flake cakes. If you like more refined baking, see also the exquisite pastel macarooons and lemon buttercream fingers.
The book is also full of nostalgia - Xanthe's recollections of visiting the Norfolk show as a child (having raised the entrance fee from a cake stall!), and sitting on the aga watching her mum cook. Mouthwatering and memorable.
