{{Book Review}} The Sweetapolita Bakebook

Paint, doodle, and sprinkle your way to stunning one-of-a-kind sweets. 
The world of Sweetapolita is sparkly and sprinkly and charming as can be, with 75 recipes for everything from pretty homemade cookies to decadent layer cakes. But what really sets these treats apart are interactive designs that let everyone in on the fun of decorating: Painted Mini Cakes are served with edible "paint" for guests to personalize at the table, the fondant-covered tiered Chalk-a-Lot cake is paired with homemade edible "chalk," and Rainbow Doodle cookies are made for kids to go to town on with edible markers. 
Rosie Alyea, the creator of the Sweetapolita blog, frolics in flour and frosting, and she loves to get her two young daughters involved, too. The pages of her debut book are full of playful ideas that will inspire creativity in bakers of all levels—including a recipe for making sprinkles at home and numerous ways to showcase them, such as the Sprinkle-Me-Silly Pizza with rainbow jimmies and nonpareils galore. 
With 75 full-color photographs of cookies, cakes, and more plus step-by-step technique tutorials, The Sweetapolita Bakebook will change the way bakers decorate, while entertaining every kid—and kid-at-heart.

*My Review*
I absolutely LOVE this book. Rosie is so talented and creative. When I saw this book available for review on I had to snag a request copy ASAP & I'm so glad that I did! I cannot wait to make her recipes, the book is bright & colorful, with thick glossy pages with pictures of all of her yummy goodies! Many of the recipes are the same as on her site, but in the book there are beautiful step by step pictures for basic techniques.

If you are like me and are addicted to having cookbooks on your bookshelf, then this book is DEF for you! You should get yourself a copy ASAP and get a few for those friends/loved ones in your life that love to bake as well!

You can find the book here on amazon!
