Anyone remotely connected to anything party knows Amy Atlas
...she is the Mother Of The Dessert Table. Waaayyyyy back in the day...I was stalking her since her The Hostess Blog
debut...yes, that is me, comment 4 on her very first post
As usual, I digress. Once she announced her first book, I have never anticipated anything more, barring meeting Bakerella
and the birth of my boys. It would be a bible, the Holy Party Grail, in short, awesomeness. And it is.
Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It
includes 15 chapters filled with more than 100 recipes for every kind of sweet treat, and over 75 easy, affordable DIY craft projects to make them even more special. Each chapter features an amazing dessert table and Amy shares the how-tos and ways to personalize for your own event.
My favorite part is how she breaks down each dessert table by giving you the recipes, how to craft the various elements, her designer secrets for arranging everything, even where to pick up the sweets for your own killer table.
Chances are, if you read my blog you probably already have her book. But, if you don't have a copy and since it's one of my favorite things, I want you to have one. Sadly, her book tour is not coming up here to Seattle, so her book will be as close as I will get. If you already have one, give it to someone who doesn't have one. I just sent one to my sister for her birthday and she sleeps with it under her pillow to absorb its amazingness. I'm lying. She doesn't do that...that would be a little crazy.
If you can't wait, order your own copy of Sweet Designs
from Amazon.com for only $15.21! If you would like to try your luck and win one, all you have to do is enter below on Rafflecopter, and remember to read the terms and conditions.
