For the money, this is an excellent book. A great 'stocking filler' for the avid home baker or anyone who has children and might like to make something a bit different when it's party time.
The photographs are lovely in this book, and the recipes seem easy to follow. I particularly liked the way there are 'tips' in boxes on all pages, the ones in the 'Basics' section were particularly helpful.
I just have a couple of little niggles (which is why this book didn't receive 5 stars).........
1. I wish there had been a list of stockists included, as there are some lovely sticks and some 'unusual' ingredients that I'd love to be able to purchase (e.g. Iranian Fairy Floss!).
2. I really felt that there were just too many things on sticks for the sake of it by the end of the book - putting a shop bought meringue nest, or an Oreo cookie on a stick just seems a step too far in 'popping' for my liking!!
All in all, a good book for the money, but I think there might be too many 'ready made' options in there to make it an essential bookshelf addition.
