My First Cookie & Cake Decorating Book
35 techniques and recipes for children aged 7-plus
35 step-by-step cookie and cake decorating projects for children aged 7+
In My First Cookie & Cake Decorating Book, kids will discover that half the fun of baking is in the decorating! With 35 easy-to-follow step-by-step projects, children will soon be impressing family and friends with delicious decorated cookies and cakes. The decorating part of the projects is designed for kids to do without help, but they might need a grown-up to help clean up the mess afterwards (and eat the finished cookies and cakes!)
This children's baking book starts with some basic recipes for vanilla sponge, gingerbread cookies and other beginner's bakes. Then it's time to learn how to decorate a cookie or a cake, with skills such as making and using a piping bag, creating and using templates, making decorations, and getting creative with toppings. There are easy recipes for creative cookies—including Christmas Trees, Snowflakes, Easter Bunnies, Sunflowers, and Gingerbread People—as well as some fun cake decorating ideas, such as Snakes & Ladders, Teddy Bear, and a Yule Log complete with Christmas decorations.
