Sweet Revenge Passive-Aggressive Desserts for Your Exes & Enemies : My Review
***This book was provided for free through NetGalley. My review and any opinion I may give of this book is completely honest.*** Description:
50+ killer cakes, cookies, and candies for your exes and enemies. Dumped by your beefcake boyfriend? BFF steal your one-and-only? Lab partner a more-than-periodic no-show? Don’t take these battles online. (Seriously, don’t do that, okay?). Get out your heaviest rolling pins, sharpest cleavers, and most blistering torches, and kill your enemies and exes . . . with kindness. That’s right – bake that loser ex a pan of Go Fudge Yourself. Gift your former friend a You’re the Devil Cake. And give that annoying admirer a Donut Call Me Again. Let them taste your over-them happiness and see what comes next . . . Pastry chef and tattoo artist Heather Kim serves up sinfully delicious recipes and bittersweet advice.
About the Author: Heather Kim is a pastry chef, painter, and tattoo artist at MPLS Tattoo, an all-female owned and operated parlour. Her deliciously unconventional desserts have been praised by the Star Tribune, Minnesota Monthly, and Eater. She lives in Minneapolis, with the loves of her life—her college sweetheart, Scottie, and their Schnauzers, Max & Nietzsche.
I was immediately drawn to this book by the book cover. I can't help it. I am slightly superficial when picking books. Then I read the title and new I had to have a copy of this book. I would like to think that I have ended any situations with my exes on pretty good terms but the humor of baking revenge desserts was too much for me to ignore. The book is broken up into sections named things like " I never Kneaded you anyway" and "Forgetting you was a piece of cake". The recipes have really fun names and the pictures are gorgeous. I would pick a copy of this up for all my friends who have ever gone through any break-ups whether with significant others or friends. This book is a much healthier way to deal with a difficult situation or betrayal as opposed to keying cars or fits of hysteria. And.....the recipes are super easy to follow and delicious!
You can grab a copy on Amazon and even take a peek inside the first few pages of the book.
