*My Review*
When I saw this book available to request, I jumped on it. I love cooking and baking so this book was the perfect thing. In "Sugar Rush" you learn about and how to make all types of sweet, including;
  • Custards and Creamy Desserts
  • Eggs and Meringue
  • Caramel
  • Cakes, Cupcakes, Brownies,
    and Muffins
  • Cookies, Tea Cakes, and Biscuits
And SO much more! This book has full chapters of each of the sweets listed above. 

The pictures in this book truly is amazing & made me craving these sweets just looking through this book! I can't wait to try some of the recipes. I even saw recipes on how to make your own marshmallows! I may never buy sweets from the store ever again. This book brought back a lot of wonderful childhood memories of spending time with my grandma baking sweets for the holidays(and even sometimes "just because"). If you like sweets, then you should definitely check out "Sugar Rush", but please...don't take my word for it, have a sneak peek into this book by clicking here
