A fabulous book for any sweet-toothed vintage lover,
This review is from: The Vintage Sweets Book (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After reading (and loving!) other books by Angel Adoree, namely The Vintage Tea Party Book, I was keen to get my hands on this latest offering -- and it did not disappoint. I cannot tell you how much I love this book!
The book not only contains tasty recipes, it is also visually stunning, finished to a high quality with brilliant photos, pictures and illustrations enough to make your mouth water! The recipes themselves are surprisingly easy in some cases, neatly laid out with clear instructions and vivid photos, so even the most inexperienced confectioner has the confidence to leap in and get started. In addition to the recipes themselves, the book also contains ideas for other fun things to make, such as toy puppets and table decorations, as well as general information on the art of sweet-making.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone with a love of all things vintage, or anyone wanting to try their hand at making some retro sweets to elicit memories from their own childhoods.
