Release Date: 17/07/14
Publisher: Bantam Press
Luisa Zissman shot to fame when she became the runner-up in the 2013 series of the BBC's The Apprentice. A baker by trade, Luisa has been running her hugely successful St Albans cake shop, Dixie's Cupcakery, since 2011. It is her mission to show the world that you don't need a lot of time or complicated ingredients to create show-stopping cupcakes like hers. In true Luisa style, her cupcakes are bold and brassy - a treat for the eyes as well as the tastebuds. Whatever the occasion, she has a cupcake that's the perfect fit: cocktail cupcakes for a girls' night in; ooh la la cupcakes for romantic liaisons; Dixie cakes, which are perfect cakes for busy mums to cook with their kids; vintage cakes for a stylish soiree and quirky cupcakes with unusual flavours, such as the genius Love Me Hate Me Marmite and Chocolate cupcake. Packed with helpful advice on how to make and decorate your cakes, Luisa's book will put the fun and sparkle back into your kitchen!
No, its not a book about how to tempt people with evil food but a book on how to create delightfully tasty treats hat not only look wonderful but taste divine.
Within this book are easy to follow recipes, that will help you boost the options available as well as giving you a whole host of recipes to create with your young bakers. (And lets face it, the best bit about that is the licking of the bowl after. Hey, there has to be some chef perks. LOL) It’s a great way to have fun in the kitchen and when you’re done you can sit back with pride and admire the work before devouring. Finally add to this tips and tricks to get that wonderful professional finish and I’m more than happy with this book.
