Book Review - Custom Confections: Delicious Desserts You Can Create and Enjoy

Disclosure:  The book was provided complimentary for review purposes.  All opinions are entirely my own.  



Lately, my daughter has been obsessed with the show Cupcake Wars and for Christmas asked for a decorating set.  It was such great timing that I received a complimentary copy of Custom Confections:  Delicious Desserts You Can Create and Enjoy by Jen Besel.  The book is full of fun dessert creations that look amazing, but are simple enough for kids to make.  Looking through the book together for ideas was a great way for us to spend some quality time together as well as keeping her busy during the winter school break.    


Deciding on a recipe.

After looking through all 40 yummy recipes, my daughter decided on the Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes.  The book contains easy step-by-step instructions and photos which is perfect for kids.    


Sprinkling.

Piping.


Her masterpiece!

Custom Confections also has recipes for more difficult desserts.  A couple of them that caught my eye were the Checkerboard Cake and Sweetheart Cupcakes (cupcakes with a heart baked in the middle).  But, the step by step instructions make the desserts seem do-able and not as daunting.  Thanks to this great dessert book, I'm looking forward to our next baking project together!
