Christmas with Kim-Joy Cookbook Giveaway

Enter our US/UK/AU/NZ giveaway to win one of three copies of Christmas with Kim-Joy: A Festive Collection of Edible Cuteness by Kim-Joy.

My husband has described me as “crusty” with a good heart. I think that means that I would do almost anything for people but I really don’t want to spend time with them. My tolerance level has gone from a microscopic level to a spot unreachable by man or science. That being said, Kim-Joy makes me smile and I could see myself spending time with her transforming dinner rolls into cute woodland creatures.

Her debut cookbook Baking with Kim-Joy (review here) was delightful and now the sweetest baker to hit the white tent takes her magic and sprinkles it all over Christmas. Matcha bamboo Swiss roll with festive pandas, White chocolate, raspberry and gin icebergs with mini penguins (she had me at gin), and Yuzu curd Santa tartlets with strawberries and cream are a few of the creations that Kim-Joy has waiting for us.

Check out our EYBDPreviewButton for a look inside which features three recipes you can try now: Lemon and cinnamon swirl Bundt cake, Eggnog mug lattes, and Marshmallow seals in a white chocolate igloo.

This adorable cookbook would make the perfect gift for bakers, old and young. Make a crusty baker in your life happy and introduce them to Kim-Joy.

  • lpatterson412  on  December 2, 2020

    I love experimenting with flavors! Not so great at making things look cute..

  • MarciK  on  December 2, 2020

    I’m a purist, mostly because I’m not patient for complex decorating. These look like they may be easy to put together.

  • youngsvnnhrs  on  December 2, 2020

    Cuteness overload!

  • RuthHarwood  on  December 3, 2020

    I’m a guess and it’ll work out tasty kinda baker… it usually tastes delish!

  • sarahawker  on  December 3, 2020

    I am NOT a fussy baker, that’s my sister who makes beautiful sweets. I want reliable classics that my family likes even though I will try most anything.

  • ChicagoJen  on  December 3, 2020

    Purist, but mostly because I lack the do decorations as pretty as my food is delicious.

    I like the creativity behind the cute things, but I don’t yet have the skill to make things cute. Mostly I feel lucky if they’re cooked properly.

  • dbranigan27  on  December 7, 2020

    I am a purist for the most part.

  • ravensfan  on  December 7, 2020


  • SerenaYLee  on  December 9, 2020

    I am a purist, but love to admire the work of those with the creativity and patience to create edible works of art. To end up eating something lickety-split after spending so much time spent decorating it just seems like an inefficient use of my time.

  • love2chow  on  December 9, 2020

    I roast more often than I bake, but I love to watch my daughter and husband bake

    It depends on who I am baking for – I make lots of rolls that look like rolls but like to make shapes for special occasions or for grandchildren

  • NaomiH  on  December 14, 2020

    I am a purist but once in a while I do break out and make something joyful

  • kmn4  on  December 15, 2020

    I’m a purist, but I could imagine my daughter, who wants to be a pastry chef, being quite the imaginative baker!
