A feast for the eyes as well as the palate, this collection from media favorite Toba Garrett is available again.

"The mouth-watering photos are enough to send you running to the store for baking equipment and ingredients...[these are] gorgeous works of art. A wealth of photographs and illustrations ensures that even novices will have success with their cookie-making marathons."--New York Daily News

"Marvelous book...Superb photography shows the excellence of Ms. Garrett's work...A must for the cookie aficionado."--American Cake Decoration

Toba Garrett--master baker, critically lauded author, and recent guest on Emeril Live--has devised cookies so delectable and exquisitely decorated that home chefs will be searching for occasions to make more. The simple recipes range from gingerbread to shortbread, from sugar cookies to chocolate. But what really makes these extra special are Garrett's clever techniques for turning the cookies into works of art that delight the eye as much as they please the palate. There are ruffled bibs in soft pastel hues for a baby shower, a white chocolate rose with eight petals, and a 3D bride and groom for wedding and anniversary celebrations. Anyone can create these effects with confidence thanks to the author's clarity and creativity.

Great Book but not my style.

This is a great book however I found the book to cater more to women. Many of the cookie designs featured had lace and flower themes. I also tried the frosting recipes and did not find them tasty. Again this is a great book for beautifullavish cookie designs but not my style of cookie. Read full review
