I’m going to tell you about a book I love called “cox cookies and cakes” I bought it in tesco a few weeks ago. The head chef at my last workplace was given this book for a Christmas present from his wife. So I had already read the book cover to cover before buying it.
The photos are lovely and you just want to start baking as soon as you open it.
Keen for me to make some of the cakes for the menu I made the chefs favorites out of the book. Needless to say I am now looking forward to making my favorites. Out of the cakes I made I followed only one of the recipes and it worked perfectly (the red velvet cupcake) with the others I used my own recipes and replicated the decoration.
Eric landlard the pastry chef (I’ve mentioned him before in my blog) and Mr Cox is a fashion designer, together they make and design cakes for the stars. I will now show you what I have made based on the ideas from the book.
Triple chocolate cupcakes.
Strawberry and vanilla cupcakes.
Red velvet cupcakes.
Last but not least my Easter bunny cupcake took inspiration from this one.
I really recommend this book for fun and happy baking and pleasurable eating!! So go buy the book and let me know how you get on.
