Product Description

From YouTube sensation Elise Strachan of My Cupcake Addiction comes a collection of amazing cakes and desserts for any skill level and any occasion, with tips on presentation and theming.

The creator and host of My Cupcake Addiction-one of the world's most widely viewed online baking shows-shares her most dazzling and delicious dessert recipes and ingenious entertaining tips so you can throw the perfect party.

Whether you're putting together a simple treat for a friend or an over-the-top extravaganza, baking cupcakes for the office or planning a trick-or-treat to be remembered, Sweet! Celebrations will be your go-to book in the kitchen. Organised around special occasions throughout the year-from spring parties to Christmas-the book includes Elise's favourite recipes for a rustic wedding, backyard barbecue celebration, elegant afternoon tea, colourful children's birthday bash and many more. Get the party started with a centrepiece cake-the Jack O' Lantern Smash Cake for a wickedly fun Halloween event or the Tree Stump Cake, dressed with flowers, for a magical woodland theme-and build from there. Elise's easy, innovative drinks, 'small bakes' and 'no bake' recipes are great for filling out your display and adding extra 'wow' factor. You'll find beautiful double-page photos of each theme party and step-by-step photographs that make decorating these gorgeous cakes easy-even for beginners. Using the same accessible approach that has drawn millions of followers to My Cupcake Addiction, Elise's cherished recipes for classic cakes, frostings and toppings will make any novice baker feel like a pro.

Elise Strachan has become a household name in the world of sweets, attracting the attention and hearts of millions with her YouTube channel My Cupcake Addiction. Elise shares her passion for baking with her family, friends and an online community that believes, as she does, that life is sweet!

Okay, not great

Too much focus on party planning and not very much on the desserts themselves. Would not recommend.
