At the Britmums conference in June I chatted to a few lovely ladies from Parragon books who introduced me to their Book Buddy scheme. As someone who is part book worm I was immediately eager to be involved.
So every now and again I get the best parcel with lovely recipe books.
For me recipe books aren’t just books that I use when cooking they are books that I lounge about with on a Sunday afternoon with a cuppa tea and plan months ahead what I intend to make on certain occasions.
Make, Bake, Cupcake is such a fun book. Cupcakes are pretty big business right now and there are LOTS of different types in this book. From childrens cakes to cocktail cakes and themed bakes such as scary Halloween type cakes.
These ones are on my to bake list:
Salted caramel cupcakes:
I particularly like the introduction pages which give really good basic instructions for making the cake batter, frosting and piping skills. Ideal for beginning bakers and would make a really lovely present.
Next up on my book buddy review list is: Make it in a Jar.
* I was sent this book for free in exchange for a review.
