If you love candy, you'll love "Sugar Baby." If you enjoy desserts and baked goods but never eat candy, you'll still love it. And, I dare say, even if you never eat sweets but have the tiniest curiosity about how they're made, you'll still love it.

As Gesine Bullock-Prado (yes, she's Sandra Bullock's sister!) asserts in her introduction, "Cooking with sugar goes far beyond candy." Indeed, her recipes range from sea salt caramels to peanut butter fudge to cotton candy to a green tea crepe cake. And she organizes the book simply but brilliantly: each chapter corresponds to a stage in sugar cooking (dissolve, soft-ball, firm-ball, hard-ball, soft-crack, hard-crack). The final "put it all together" chapter combines elements from the first six to create cakes, scones and cookies.

Perhaps the most refreshing and surprising aspect of this book is the author's voice. She writes with an honest humour that comes across as neither pedantic nor forced, no mean feat in a world of over-the-top and personality-lacking cookbook commentary. While I may not feel ready to try my hand at making pulled maple taffy and barley malt skulls, Bullock-Prado has certainly inspired my creative dessert juices.

"Sugar Baby" contains numerous stunning photos though perhaps not enough. To augment the visual experience, readers can find more pictures and how-to video's on the book's website [...]

While I think this book has some great recipes and techniques, I was disappointed by the lack of pictures. I was hoping for some photos of even finished products but to my surprise there wasn't any! That would be my only complaint!

This book is disappointing for a couple reasons:

1.Lack of pictures- I bought the book aware that it had few pictures, but it was still disappointing to see for myself just how few.

2. Swearing - When choosing a movie, or a novel, I realize that language might be a concern, but in a cook book? It seems uncalled for. I feel I could never recommend, or lend this book to a friend, even if the recipes turn out to be fantastic.
