The Wicked Baker – Cookbook Giveaway

Enter our US/UK/NZ/AU giveaway to win one of three copies of The Wicked Baker: Cakes and Treats to Die For by Helena Garcia.

Wicked by definition means evil, extremely unpleasant. Wicked in the state of Maine usually precedes “good” as in “wicked good chowdah”. In Helena Garcia’s debut cookbook wicked leans more toward the “wicked good” slang used in Maine but with a deliciously spooky sense of the macabre.

Eye love you truffles, Yummy mummy éclairs, and Vanilla coffin cakes will bring new life to your Day of the Dead celebrations. Most of the recipes are perfect for Halloween treats with a few Christmas recipes thrown in: Gingerbread twins (think The Shining) and the Creepmas wreath cookies.

The recipes also could be altered. For instance, let’s say the Vanilla coffin cakes don’t fit in with your bridal shower theme (even though my husband thinks marriage is a slow form of death, thanks honey), use Helena’s vanilla sponge cake recipe and either cut the layers into simple squares or rectangles or serve the cake whole. There is a world of possibilities in this fun little book from our favorite wicked good GBBO baker.
