For all of you adventurous bakers, this is what you need. This awesome step-by-step, fully illustrated book has everything in it to teach you how to make the prettiest cakes, cupcakes, cake pops and more. 
It shows you what tools you will need, and exactly how to implement them. I can't wait to start practicing with some of these cake tools, and make prettier cakes. For now, I went with one of the non-cake recipes. Yup, you read right. And I actually made two.
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Bark


Milk Chocolate, Hazelnut, Raisin Bark
I love bark, had never made my own before and was blown away by how easy it is, never mind how tasty too! I was also surprised by some of the recipes that were not cake. I was surprised they were even in the book. I'm glad though, the bark turned out amazeballs and I know it will be something I make a lot of. 
I can't wait to try a granola bar recipe, and as I said earlier, some of the cake decorating with the tools, like pretty edging. I look forward to learning how to do that.

Be sure to check this book out or one of the other great books in the boutique. Get one for your mom to enjoy today, or get one as a treat to yourself if you are a cookbook-loving mom!

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
