Gr 7 Up—Getting one's heart broken by either a romantic interest or a friend can be tough, so why not turn those feelings into food? This baking cookbook is about taking anger and hurt and turning it into a delicious dessert. The layout features quirky doodles, bright neon lettering, and mouthwatering photos. The recipes range in difficulty but both novice and expert pastry chefs alike will be entertained. Newbie bakers will appreciate the helpful hints to baking terms in the directions and key, which also notes difficulty level, servings, and cooking time. As one might glean from its witty title, this book has a generous serving of tongue-in-cheek quips and sassy recipe names.
VERDICT This is book to be indulged in at a sleepover or when one's heart feels a bit torn up. An easy addition to baking and cooking collections.
