This is a wonderful baking book with a wide range of recipes from across the baking spectrum. I believe that this book would make an excellent gift for someone who has in interest in baking as the recipes range from the simple to the somewhat complex. Many of the recipes in this book are ones that parents will enjoy making with their children.
The range of celebrities who have provided recipes for this book is incredibly broad with some of the providing some information on the inspiration behind the recipe. A large number of professional/TV chefs have contributed recipes for this book. (see recipe list below)
I know some people complain about cookery books that do not contain photos of the finished product and you could say that this is the case here as there are no photos of the finished cake/biscuit etc. However, instead of photos we have wonderful illustrations of the cake/biscuit etc that leave you in no doubt as to what yours should look like once it comes out of the oven. I have personally baked 3 of the recipes from this book and all of them turned out as I had hoped.
The book is divided into the following chapters:
Cakes Biscuits Chocolate Tarts' Pies and Puddings Gluten-free/Healthy Options
The fact that the proceeds from this book go to a worthwhile cause provides another reason why I would highly recommend this book to you.
Below is a list of all of the recipes featured in this book. I hope this helps when it comes to you deciding whether or not to purchase this book.
