After a little mess up last week and my blog deciding to eat the entire post and linky, before any of you could even link up, here we go again. This week’s theme is: Your favourite recipe books!
As I love the pretty things in life, it’s no surprise that my favourite book features something sweet, something beautiful to look at and something a little naughty. So here is my favourite recipe book *drum roll*: It’s “Hello, Cupcake” and was written by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson, an American author and food-photographer duo that really knows how to make you go cupcake crazy. “Hello, Cupcake” was my first ever cupcake book and since I got it for my birthday last year, I have added many more to my little collection. This book tells you step by step how to create quirky cupcake designs and really gets your creative juices flowing. Some of the cupcake decorating ideas are quite time-consuming and tricky, but I love flicking through the pages to get some inspiration or to simply look at the amazing creations that the couple comes up with.
I have tried a few of the cupcake designs, e.g. pandas and some sunflowers, however none were really good enough to share them on here, so I’ll keep practising for a bit longer and maybe I’ll be able to show you something spooky and scary for Halloween. Until then, I’d love to see where you get your culinary inspiration from. So take a snapshot of your favourite cooking or baking book, write a couple of words about it and link up below. I’d also love it, if you could grab the Show Me, Show me badge and link it with this page, so that your readers can find other yummy posts. Thanks for linking up and see you on Sunday for week three of Show Me, Show Me and a new prompt for the week.
