"Sweet: Our Best Cupcakes, Cookies, Candy and More" is a dessert cookbook by the editors of Food Network Magazine. This cookbook is amazing! With over 300 pages of delicious, enticing desserts, there is really something for every event. Whether you are a beginner, or more advanced baker, there are plenty of recipes to make, as well as variations on some of the recipes to try out. From whoopie pies and pineapple upside down cake to the more exotic bourbon praline cake, these recipes will make your mouth water.
What I really liked about this cookbook is that each recipe features a full page photo of the finished product. I find this to be really helpful when deciding what to make - although, be warned, many of these photos will have your mouth watering before you even read the ingredient list.
The book covers a myriad of desserts, and is broken down into chapters: cupcakes and whoopie pies; cookies and bars; candy and snacks; pies and crumbles; fake-out cakes; show-off cakes, frozen treats; and holiday desserts. See? I told you - something for every occasion! The book also offers a photo table of contents, so instead of flipping page by page through the book, you can scan the photos in the table of contents to easily find the recipe you want.
Overall I would give this book a 5/5. I loved the photos, and found the recipes to be delicious. I also loved that the directions and ingredient lists are relatively simple and easy to follow. Great recipes, just in time for the holidays!
