“Best Book Ever”
I'm 10 years old and I love this book! I have made lots of these recipes, my favourite is the lemon and lime cupcakes. Today for the first time I made the Lemon and Berry muffins and my family love them. They won't last long! I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to bake.
“The Best Children's Cookery Book I Have Ever Purchased”
I bought this cookery book for my now 3 year old a couple of years ago. I had just started baking with her and was looking for simple ideas. We now bake every day and she always asks to use this book. She loves following the illustrations as we bake. The cakes are delicious every time and - like every toddler - she loves to lick out the bowl!! Our baking experience could not be more enjoyable than when we use The Usborne Children's Book of Baking!
“I love this book!”
I got this book for Christmas, and I have used it alot since. Lots of great, unusual recipes and they always turn out very nicely.
“childrens book of baking”

Press reviews

“Coco loves making biscuits, so this book is perfect. It has lots of practical tips and simple recipes and includes one of the all-time favourite biscuit-based recipes - this Blueberry Cheesecake with an accompanying compote. If you prefer raspberries, simple swap them for blueberries.”
