Baking Book Review – The Vintage Sweets Book

Hello! :) Long time, no post once again. As of last time, I have finished teaching this time around, and it really sucked out all my energy :( But I will try to get back on track (and on a regular posting schedule).

The next few weeks all posts will be written and scheduled beforehand, because I am taking a trip across Asia, with the Transmongolian Railway! (Posts about my trip can be followed here, the frequency will depend on the internet access.)

Today, I will talk about a sweet little book. Remember my last post, where I talked about The Vintage Tea Party Book by Angel Adoree? Well, Angel has written more than one book, and The Vintage Sweets Book is a gem for any candy-maker!

Many recipes require a candy thermometer, but really, most candy-making does, and they don’t have to be particularly expensive.

The recipes are many and original, how about rice paper cubes with sherbet powder filling?

The whole book is kept in Angel’s lovely fairy-tale atmosphere and with well-written recipes, it really is a keeper!

Baking Book Review – Meringue Girls Cookbook

Monday again! Today is all about meringue, with the Meringue Girls Cookbook! This book popped up as a suggestion on amazon last summer, and I instantly added it to my shopping cart. I have a weakness for cookbooks that focus on a single type of ingredient or cake (in this case meringues), and the colourful cover was enough to make me fall love immediately. IMG_0126 Alex and Stacey, the women behind the book guides the reader through the process of meringue making, and with a ground recipe for meringue they provide fabulous ideas and recipes, and produce the most beautiful meringues in the most amazing colours Continue reading
