Pasteles Magicos Decorados
Submitter: Here is book I just discarded from our library collection. The title of our book is Magical Decorated Cakes. I also took a picture of one of the cakes inside the book, a typewriter cake.
Holly: These cakes are awesome! This book would be REALLY cool if it showed you how to make a cake in the shape of an iPhone or an eReader. Unfortunately…it doesn’t.
The Good Cook: Snacks & Sandwiches
Submitter: I just weeded this from our collection. The photo on the cover is awful! The content isn’t half bad, but that cover just stops me dead. I was afraid to open the book!
Holly: Ick! You figure they probably put the most appetizing thing on the cover to make you buy the book. If that’s the case, then I have NO desire to read this one! I’m a pretty adventurous eater – not picky at all – but I would think twice before serving this to…well, anyone.
The First Book of Boys’ Cooking
Gotta love the titles that pre-date ME!
Love the recipes and I noticed that even the language would be archaic by today’s standards. Would kids even know that a fridge was known as an “icebox”? This really does belong in an archive. What a great find! I have even included a few recipes since I am sure you young men out there would love to know the secrets of exceptional cooking!
