With quirky, visually arresting recipes, award-winning food photographer Alpers illustrates the many ways that sprinkles can be used to add whimsy to desserts and edible gifts. After introducing readers to types of decorative confections (e.g., nonpareils, edible glitter, candy melts), she shows how to incorporate them into cakes (confetti layer cake), condiments (I heart sprinkles butter), party favors (party spoons), cocktails (birthday cake martinis), and more. Many projects, such as the kid-friendly confetti popcorn cake (similar to marshmallow cereal treats), can be prepared with just a microwave, mixing bowl, and spatula.
VERDICT A fun niche title for the kid at heart.
