This review is from: Frostings (Hardcover)
As soon as this arrived it ruined my day. My eyes kept glancing at that luscious cover with love and I could not help flicking through the pages endlessly. Ever since, I swear I have dreamt of nothing but frostings. This book includes all kinds of sweet things to cover cakes, cupcakes and more, such as different frostings including my favourite buttercream; ganaches and glazes. Just when I thought I could give up cake. I'll let you into a secret - it's the frostings I love. Do you too? I know my son does and I have a secret feeling most people do. Do you peel off the icing on your Christmas cake and eat it first or save it until last? This is the book for you. Indulge in frostings galore. There are 26 frostings in this book; six ganaches and eight glazes. Did you know there are four types of buttercream and they are all in this book. Enjoy the tips and techniques to achieve the perfect finish to your cakes. The cake recipes are not included. Hardly any recipes for frostings contain flour, so are suitable for gluten-free. Warning - use this book wisely, too much sugar is not healthy, but I am sure it is harmful to not indulge once in a while. Courtney makes indulging a real treat.
