Did you know that this is National Chocolate Week? I didn't until yesterday and I can't think of a more delicious week to celebrate! As you know I LOVE CHOCOLATE, but the Toddster doesn't. Meh . . . what do men know about such things . . .
I have had a cookbook entitled "Bake Me I'm Yours . . . Chocolate" in my bookcase for a while now. It's a part of the Bake Me I'm Yours series put out by D&C publishing.
It's a cute little book, which contains over 25 beautiful Chocolate Creations. Written and put together by Tracey Mann, it consists of over 123 pages, and is fully illustrated with color photos throughout. It's not a large book in size, and would easily fit inside a handbag. Printed on quality paper and soft covered.
It's set up in convenient sections and includes all the basics you need to know about baking and decorating with chocolate as it's main theme.
Included are an extensive tool list so that you need never be in the dark as far as knowing what to use and when to use it. Basic techniques are covered such as tempering chocolate and using chocolate paste. Basic recipes are also included for things such as chocolate sponge cake, brownies, ganache, chocolate cupcakes, amongst others.
Each recipe and technique is beautifully photographed and illustrated.
You can learn now to make perfect chocolate curls . . .
Be able to create fantastic Celebratory Creations!
From beautiful and simple every day cupcakes . . .
To fabulously decorated Christmas Cakes!!
If Chocolate is your thing . . . and you like to decorate and create beautiful baked goods, then this is the book for you!
Right now you can purchase it at RUCrafts for the low price of £2.99 I don't know about you, but that is pretty affordable in my opinion, not much more than the price of a hot drink in a cafe and you'll have it with you for a whole lot longer too!
