Dessert Designer: Creations You Can Make and Eat! by Dana Meachen Rau

Dessert Designer: Creations You Can Make and Eat!
 by Dana Meachen Rau

Turn your boring desserts into fantastic works of food art. Learn to make cupcakes into bunnies or candies into shining stars. The best part of this book is learning its OK to play with your food!

I was the Children's Librarian at the Allegheny Library tonight and took this book to review it. One patron after the other picked it up and looked through it and shared it with others in the Children's room. They absolutely LOVED this book!

The parents commented on how creative this book was and how they couldn't believe some of the designs were actually made from candy. They loved the recipe for the Rolled-Up Roses where the ingredients were fruit leather and lollipop sticks. They talked about the Sweet Sushi, Treasure Chest, Pool Party ( one of the ingredients was blue gelatin), the Tie Dye T-shirt, Rockin Guitar, Sugar Burger, Fooled You PB & J, and other delicious desserts.

Just leafing through this book brings a smile to your face and a tingle in your tummy! This would be a great book for children who and supervising adults to create some really fun sweet treats that would turn any heads... Creating these desserts might bring any child a first prize in any cooking/baking contest.

The pictures are spectacular! The recipes are easy to follow.

This book is billed at "51 fun creations easy enough for kids."

Try it... you'll love it!!!!!!!!!!! Your tummy will love you!!!!!!!!!

I would recommend this delightful book for any home, school, or public library!

KUDOS to Capstone Publishers! You have done it again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Until the next time............

Happy reading............................

A children's book a day, keeps the scary monster away!
