Sugarcoat It!: Desserts to Design, Decorate, and Devourby Jen Besel
Get ready to decorate desserts into edible works of art. Learn to make beautiful treats, including ice cream cone cupcakes, layered cakes, and monsterific brownies. These delectable desserts are beautiful to look at and even tastier to eat!
Gr 6 Up—Frozen pastry, prepared pie crusts, cake mixes, and melting candy are employed in projects (more than a dozen per volume) that emphasize craft over cooking. Some of these projects are incredibly easy (dip pretzel rods or cookies into melting candy, then decorate with sprinkles), while some require a high degree of artistic skill along with patience and a steady hand (layered cakes covered with rolled and cut fondant, homemade gel cake decorations). Beautifully designed, with mouthwatering images of finished projects and process photos where needed, these books are like real-world Pinterest boards. Some kids will like this skip-to-the-fun-part approach, but others will find the reliance on prepared or semi-prepared foods irksome—and, in truth, the finished desserts don't taste as good as they would have had they been made from scratch.
