Boutique Baking - My favourite Peggy book so far!,
This review is from: Boutique Baking: Delectable Cakes, Cupcakes and Teatime Treats (Hardcover)
Boutique Baking is slightly different from Peggy's previous books which focus more on decorating projects using several key recipes. Instead, Boutique Baking is filled with recipes - each with their own decorating ideas and techniques that Peggy clearly guides you through with written instructions and visual steps.
Boutique Baking is made up of 7 chapters: Sweet Treats, Beautiful Biscuits, Cupcake Heaven, Luscious Layer Cakes, Classic Cakes & Bakes, Delicious Drinks, and The Icing on The Cake.
Notable recipes include:
Springerle Cookies - I've always wanted to make these, but have never found an authentic wooden mould.
Chocolate Heaven Cupcakes - I've made these and they're delicious.
Summer Berry Cake - this has a beautiful pattern on top that's created by a simple dusting of cocoa powder over a patterned stencil.
Raspberry & Rose Dome Cake - I also made this, and it turned out fantastic.
Minteani - A light and refreshing iced mint tea and vodka cocktail.
Out of all of Peggy's books (she has 5), Boutique Baking is my favourite. The recipes are all mouth watering and accompanied by stunning photos, not only of the finished product but also of the steps needed to get you there. Boutique Baking has something for everyone. Novice bakers and decorators need not shy away, as there's a recipe and decorating idea to suit every skill level.

Thanks very much. Unfortunately I live in the UK, so if you or anyone else knows of a store in the UK or Europe that I can order them from that would be great.
