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:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
