Synopsis

The Great British Bake Off: How to Turn Everyday Bakes into Showstoppers by Linda Collister

The Great British Bake Off is a glorious celebration of Britain's favourite pastime. As the series has shown us, baking is the perfect way to mark an occasion - to celebrate, to congratulate and reward, and to lift spirits. This new book is inspired by the wonderful creations from The Great British Bake Off , Showstopper Challenge. There are dainty bakes for afternoon tea, quick bakes perfect for bake sales, school fairs or coffee with friends, mouthwatering desserts, breads and pastry recipes for lunches and dinner parties, and some really special bakes for birthdays and festive celebrations throughout the year. The book will show you how to make your bake extra special, from exciting finishes using chocolate curls and ribbons and spun sugar to simple ideas for icing, shaping and decorating, so you can bring a touch of magic to any bake. Great British Bake Off also includes the Best of the Bake-off - the finest recipes from the new set of Great British Bake Off amateur bakers, and all of Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood's Technical Challenges from the series. If you learned How to Bake from last year's book, Showstoppers will take you to the next level of skill, and combined with a dazzling new design and superb photography, this will be an irresistible gift for yourself or someone else.
