As a food blogger, I was chosen by the marketing director of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to review their newest release by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson called Cupcakes, cookies and pie, oh, my! You may remember their previous books What’s new, Cupcake? and Hello, Cupcake! You know, the cool and artistic way of decorating cupcakes to look like little works of art. In this new addition Karen and Alan have stepped it up a notch adding pies, cookies, brownies and Rice Crispy Treats to their repertoire. Their simple techniques and tricks take you on a journey to getting creative in the kitchen using simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand. Their ideas are ingenious, so simple, so clever that even a beginner baker can assemble these goodies with their eyes closed. (Okay, so you can’t really close your eyes. You have to read the book and look at the amazing pictures and trust me, you’ll want flip through it cover to cover. It’s that cute!) So what are you waiting for?
