It's broken down in chapters covering the Basics - the equipment and tools needed. Techniques - icing techniques, how to use a pastry bag and more. And the best for… Continue

I have never before entered a book challenge, but since I started blogging and joined some book sites, I have entered a couple, or at least at first I said it was only going to be a couple.

This review is from E, my avid 10-year old reader. He dictated it so, for the most part, these are his words.

In each you will see reflected yourself, your friends, your family, your… Continue
