Any day—from boring Tuesdays to special birthdays to Valentine's Day —is better when you have dessert. Dessert Designer by Capstone Young Readers (http://www.capstoneyoungreaders.com/) shows creative kids and their parents that it's OKAY to play your food! Using store-bought baked goods, easy to find ingredients and step-by-step instructions, Dessert Designer focuses on the BEST part of baking -- DECORATING! Kids can let their imaginations run wild by turning cakes into roller coasters, cupcakes into glitzy armadillos and cookies and candy into sweet sushi and rainbows (complete with a pot of gold).
Author Dana Meachen Rau focuses on the art of design (not baking) and with her simple techniques and instructions, kids will be able to design and decorate like a pro, with no baking skills or fancy pastry supplies required. The results are whimsical, inspiring, and utterly gorgeous desserts. I've attached a few interior pages from the book so you can see how deliciously fun these creations truly are!
I'm always posting recipes on here so everyone knows I like to cook so I thought this would be a very fun giveaway! I love easy ways to cook because not everyone keeps a million different baking ingredients in their house all the time! Dessert Designer helps you and your kids design and decorate without a bunch of supplies which is a plus for me!
I think this book would be a very fun way to get your kids involved in the kitchen too! So one reader will get their own book to keep plus mixing bowls and a spatula!
