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!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
