      It's quite attainable to make this dessert this gorgeous, but I'm glad I decided to practice making the crystals. It took a little judgement to know when the crystals were strong enough to take out but not overly solid. I did not have luck cracking them with a knife, as described in the recipe (they broke up too small no matter how careful I was), but had better luck cracking one corner and then using a spatula to carefully lift them out. They are quite fragile until after they dry out. Also, they were inclined to drip and puddle when I set them on parchment. I had better luck setting them on a cooling rack and then moving them about from time to time (maybe four times during a day of drying) to keep them from sticking. Really it's not hard but it does take a little knack. They keep, so doing them early is fine even if you're an ace on your first try.

      I'm not a fan of white chocolate but I found it quite pleasant grated on top of the mousse like this.

Publishers Text

A quirky, beautifully photographed collection of delicious and creative Nordic baking recipes inspired by nature.

From the Danish concept of hygge (or “coziness”) to the Swedish fika (or “coffee break”), when it comes to enjoying the good things in life, the Nordic countries tend to know best. And dessert, Bakeland reveals, is no exception.

Written by Marit Hovland, the Norse graphic designer, baker, and photographer behind the popular Instagram account and blog Borrow My Eyes, this gorgeous recipe book is a remarkably innovative homage to the beauty of the world around us that will delight lovers of baking, crafting, nature, and all things Scandinavian.

With fifty tempting dessert recipes and 140 stunning color photographs, Bakeland is as much a treat for the eyes as it is for the taste buds. Focusing on purity, season, and quality, Hovland offers a sweet, playful approach to the New Nordic cuisine trend made popular by chefs like Magnus Nilsson. Her belief that “inspiration can be found everywhere” shines through in each of her culinary creations, which replicate the most striking aspects of the natural world. From chocolate sea to pinecone-shaped gingersnaps, Bakeland takes readers on an artful, tasty trip through nature in Norway, season by season. Better yet, each recipe is detailed, precise, and easy to follow, with no special equipment required. With step-by-step illustrated instructions and an emphasis on simplicity, Hovland’s approach to baking is as accessible as it is delectable.
