I’m not much of a baker but this charming book appealed to my inner Betty Crocker.
Kawaii Cakes is an adorable recipes collection of Japanese-inspired cakes, cookies, cupcakes and treats.
It’s easily the cutest recipe book I’ve ever seen. And while I haven’t read a whole lot of recipe books in my time, you can’t ignore sweets like ‘Unicorn Poop Iced Gem Cookies,’ ‘Lambykins Cookies’ and ‘Sweetheart Cupcakes’.
With step-by-step instructions on piping, filling, icing and decorating, it’s a fun (and full on) introduction into the world of edible art.
While I skimmed past the pages marked ‘difficult’, Kawaii Cakes has enough recipes to warm even the coldest of hearts, like it did mine.
