Cox Cookies & Cake
I got sent a copy of Cox, Cookies and Cake by the lovely folk at Baking Mad , which is a website and community with lots of info on baking, recipes etc. As you can see from the pictures, the theme of the book is somewhat risque cakes — the idea of Cox Cookies and Cake, where Lanlard teamed up with shoe designer Patrick Cox, was to open a sexy cake shop. This is an interesting idea, achieved in the most part by making cakes that look like boobs or have little torsos on. There were some things I really liked about the book — take a look at this ingenious use of bubble wrap — how clever is that!! And the glittery decorations are pretty cool too. But overall its just not for me.
