Love it, love it! -

Picked this up from another shop, (sorry Book People), was attracted by the cover. If you have forgotten the joy of baking or want to get the children/grandchildren into proper baking then you can't go wrong with this, it's simple, simple, simple. Don't expect 50 recipes, it's more basic mixes with different add ins. Right children, hands washed, sleeves rolled up and pinny on...

"Cynical cover, disappointing content" -

I saw this cover and expected to get 50-ish recipes, with a decent number of them geared towards parties, especially British/Jubilee themed, and was really disappointed.The book really has more like 10 recipes but with different variations (hence it saying "50 ways to bake" not "50 recipes"). Only one recipe -the fairy cakes with red, white and blue icing - is British party themed. In fairness it doesn't say anywhere that it is British themed but it certainly is implied in the rather cynically designed cover.What the book actually does rather well is to take a basic recipe like a cookie and then get the child to apply it in several different ways (e.g. sweet and savoury scones, or bread rolls with different toppings), which I actually think is a good thing to teach kids. However the publishers have overlooked this genuine positive selling point in favour of trying to cash in on the 2012 national mood by covering it in Union Jacks and branding it a celebration book.
