A nice pre-Christmas purchase to get the mouth watering,
This review is from: Bake Me I'm Yours... Christmas: Over 20 Delicious Festive Treats: Cookies, Cupcakes, Brownies & More (Hardcover)
At the risk of sounding like a Stepford Wife, I saw a copy of this in the local public library at the end of August and was so suckered in by the scrumptious pictures that I couldn't resist giving it a read.
Unsurprisingly, this book concentrates more on the style of baking than the substance - with the emphasis on the decorative possibilities of Christmas recipies. However, the rear of the book does explain how each cake, cookie or cupcake is made from scratch, so don't despair if you're unsure of the basics.
Perhaps even more useful is the instructions for using more complex decorative techniques, such as shaping paste, using cutters and tempering chocolate. This step-by-step guide clearly shows that all the gorgeous pictures you can see in the book are not impractical and overly-complicated window-decoration, but are perfectly do-able for the average man and woman to replicate in the comfort of their own kitchen.
A really nice pre-Christmas purchase to get the mouth watering!
