Dessert Designer: Kids Baking and Dessert Cookbook Geared for Grades 3 to 9


Dessert Designer by Dana Meachen Rau is a fun, simplified baking book that is easy on the kids.

Bright pictures with easy-to-execute designs, the recipes call for little actual baking and focus on the decorating. Each chapter works on a different subject: Cupcakes; Cookies; Candies; and Cakes. This book focuses on ready-made purchased commercial items or plain cupcakes and cookies that are decorated. Examples of recipes include themed cupcakes, Oreo-style cookie projects, and quick candy projects that require no stove-top cooking - just putting different candies together.
