Turn every baking occasion into a celebration of all your favorite animals, with over 45 delicious recipes for animal-themed cakes, cookies, and more!
Take a walk on the wild side of baking with this stunning collection of recipes that are baked or decorated in the shape of a whole host of furry friends. From bunny-shaped biscuits to enjoy at Easter, to a fabulous flamingo cake fit for any child’s (or big-kid’s!) birthday, each recipe is fun to create and tasty to eat. At the beginning of the book you’ll find all the basic recipes you need for your animal bakes and, together with must-know decorating tips, you’ll be well on your way to mastering the designs for every cute critter. Each chapter is then separated by a different theme. “A Day at the Zoo” features a Smiling Sloth cake. “Garden Critters” welcomes a Buzzing Bee Hive into your kitchen, while in “Perfect Pets” you’ll find an Adorable Pug. Head “On the Farm” for a No-Drama Llama cake or Fluffy Sheep gingerbread and, then, grab your magic whisk for “Fantastical Creatures” where you’ll summon rainbow Unicorn Cupcakes and a Bubbly Narwhal. Each bake is sure to be the cute and creative center of every party!
