Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Vanilla-pecan swirl tea cake with maple glaze

    • Melanie on May 24, 2014

      Delicious and very easy to make. - but don't add bicarb to the glaze as it creates an odd texture. Whend adding the cinnamon / sugar / nut layer try to keep it in the middle of the tin (avoid the sides). Only need to make about half of the glaze recipe. This cake only needed about 40min at 165deg C FF.

  • Plain Jane marshmallows

    • meggan on December 10, 2012

      I don't know what I did wrong but this ended up a hot mess. I have tried other mallow recipes that were a lot easier and cleaner.

  • Yum.Fi

    The only downside to this book is the torture and mental stress that it might create if you are on a diet!

    She divides the chapters by doneness of sugar syrup (soft-ball, hard-ball, soft-crack, etc.)...The result feels almost as much a craft how-to as a cookbook, but in just the right way.

Publishers Text

Cookbooks with recipes for baking with sugar (in the oven), continue to top the bestseller lists. And yet, no one has set out to do a cookbook with recipes on cooking with sugar (on the stovetop) - until now. In "Sugar Baby", Gesine Bullock-Prado unveils the mystery that typically surrounds this subject, with delicious recipes, totally unintimidating step-by-step advice, the simplest instructions and an absolutely hilarious voice. Bullock-Prado's product line, "Gesine's Confectionery", is adored by fans across the country. But she isn't the only sugar-crazed one out there. She knows from countless e-mails and telling blog stats the length that sugar babies like her will go to in order to get their absolute favourite peanut brittle and exquisite salted caramel. In 2009 Bullock-Prado published a memoir ("Confections of a Closet Baker") chronicling her love of sweets, but in "Sugar Baby", she presents her first-ever cookbook where she shares the recipes her fans are waiting for. Now, in "Sugar Baby", Bullock-Prado turns a foodie's eye on the joys of sweets while also taking the fear and intimidation out of working with sugar. Organized by temperature and chemical stages, here are over 100 recipes for lollipops, candy corn, rock candy, gummy candy, macaroons, marshmallow, pudding pops, cakes, and much more. With recipes such as Chinese Ginger and Lime Milk 'Candy', Coocoo for Cocoa Crepe 'Cakes', and This is not Your Grandmother's Mail Order Nut 'Log', "Sugar Baby" will satisfy even the most demanding sweet tooth.
