I love this book.. I've always baked, but have never made sweets, I bought this book after seeing it at full price in a well-known book shop and falling in love with it. There are so many gorgeous recipes, from truffles to toffee and marshmallows. I've already made the Turkish delight and it was the best we've ever tasted, so cheap to make too! Some of the recipes sound a little tricky, but nothing I wouldn't attempt. This together with a sugar thermometer would make a fabulous gift for someone who likes baking and if you're lucky you might get to sample the results Highly recommended.
