3.0 out of 5 stars Depends on your style, 13 Jan 2014
This review is from: The Vintage Sweets Book (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was excited about this book as I love to bake and I am a fan of anything retro. I didn't see the episode of Dragon's Den that Angel Adoree was featured on and I hadn't heard of her first two books so this was my first experience of Angel.

The first thing I realised was that Angel's style was not quite the same as mine. It was very in your face, over stylised vintage and her book was definitely the same with lots of imagery, cooky pictures and evidence of a very creative imagination. Having said all that, I gave this book to my sister who absolutely adored every picture contained within. I suppose it's horses for courses.

The recipes within the book are definitely a blast from the past and there is definitely something that everyone will enjoy. The recipes range from the quick and easy through to the more intricate and complicated. Some have some fairly unusual ingredients and some require quite a lot of equipment. Having said all that, if you're willing to take the time and effort, you can get some fantastic results.

I'm only giving the book 3 stars because, personally, I thought it concentrated on style over substance. However, my sister would definitely give it 5 stars so don't let my review put you off buying it if you look at it and instantly feel like Angel is a kindred spirit.
