the snowflake book of baking – out of print

i finally have a copy of the snowflake book of baking

I have been on the look out for a copy of this book since I took it out of the library over a year ago. I was talking about baking last month (as you do) and the friend I was talking to mentioned they had just bought a copy of this particular book at a second hand book shop in Kalk Bay and then, get this, there was another copy on the shelf at the time. With great excitement I immediately phoned the shop to reserve it.

To my surprise and delight I unwrapped a near perfect and seemingly unused copy of it two days later on Christmas day. Thank you Jane and Gordon, it’s a wonderful, practical and comprehensive book of thoroughly tested  recipes which will be a perfect base from which I can ‘play’ from.  It was published  in 1994.

some shortbread recipes to try

I also have the Golden Cloud book: Home Bakes, by Carolie De Koster (Published by Lannice Snyman in 2001) which is superb.  I have my eye on the double white chocolate cake recipe in there, so watch this space.
