A Sweet Peek at 1000 Ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cookies and Cakes by Quarry Press

So.

The recently released book, 1,000 Ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cookies & Cakes, delivers exactly what it promises: one thousand ideas for decorating cupcakes, cookies, and cakes.

But should you buy it?

I recently received it as a review sample from the friendly folks at Quarry Press, and I must say I was impressed. Usually I feel as if sweets-themed books fall into two camps: ones that I like for the pictures, and ones that I like for the recipes. But this one, as it turns out, was solely dedicated to the former--it is sort of like a confectionery "look book", comprised of inspiring photos of decorating ideas for baked goods.

I found it to be an inspiring resource to turn to when baking old recipes and looking for a new decorating spin--a fun book to flip through for ideas, and one that I'd suggest for other baker friends too.

So there you go: my two cents. A good gift idea for your baker friend, or baker self!

Buy it online here.

For the contest ( but probably can't win as I am related to the judge!!). For my birthday, I would LOVE a gluten free goat cheese cake, with dark chocolate swirls and fresh raspberries. I have no idea where you can find goat cream cheese but maybe someone knows! As I am not able to eat the other kind, I think that would be a little bit of heaven for a gluten and dairy free person!
