Normally I review two types of books here on The Chocolate Cult.
Cookbooks where I try three recipes and then give my opinion about not just the book itself but also the clearness of the directions and ease in finding the ingredients.
Chocolate Books which are books related to the history, culture, or use of chocolate but with no recipes.
This review of Bake Sale is a new type of book for us to review here. The target audiences seem to be older children to the very earliest tween years because to fully use this book the reader would need access to a kitchen. The basic story -- hard work to achieve a goal and placing friends above said goal -- also seems geared toward this age group.
The eight (one is inside another) recipes also range from simple brownies to difficult marzipan. While we see most of these recipes twice -- first in the story as Cupcake our main character makes them -- not every recipes or treat in the bakery is laid out for us to try. Only one of the recipes is explicitly for chocolate.
Over all is a good little book that could make a good gift I think. I thank the Amazon Vine program and :01 First Second for sending me a copy to review.
