This book has been out for a little while now and I've only just got myself a copy (thank you Christmas vouchers). I have a huge wishlist of baking books that I will never ever be able to afford. Having to pick and choose can be hard.
Tart it Up! feels very familiar and comfortable. Most likely because it's laid out like Home Bake. I think of that as a good thing. I like "comfortable" (I am a Taurus) and I like this book.
I wish I hadn't waited so long for it. There are so many things I want to make. This list is more for my benefit, but it’s a great way to show you what is inside!
