I really loved that it was a hardback book and not flimsy. It was easy to read, informative and was filling with helpful baking tips.
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.
