Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Zella Cunningham
These desserts are pretty food that looks almost too good to eat! The thirteen, mouth-watering recipes in this volume require simple to expert skills to prepare and the use of a microwave or stove top for cooking preparation. Easy to follow, numbered, and colorfully pictured directions are accompanied by a metric/U.S. conversion chart and a picture page of the tools to have on hand. The language used in the table of contents gives a clear description of the dessert, making it easy to select a recipe. For novice cooks (although heating or microwaving is the extent of the cooking) there is a section named “Tips, Tricks, and Recipes” included in the back of the book that describes helpful tips and tricks. In the true format for an informational book, there is a brief glossary of terms, a list of further sources, and a coded link to an internet website that the reader will find useful. Part of the “Custom Confections” series. Reviewer: Zella Cunningham; Ages 8 to 12.

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.
