Editorial Reviews

Patricia Helding, Founder, Fat Witch Bakery, and author of Fat Witch Brownies "This gem of a cookbook should be nestled right between your baking canisters and a bottle of your favorite hooch. Don't reach for one without the other."Rick Rodgers, author of Thanksgiving 101 and many other cookbooks "Lucy Baker has created a spirited collection of luscious recipes that are likely to make a dedicated teetotaller make an exception when it comes to dessert.  Lucy knows what many pastry chefs have known for years--that a splash of booze can make or break a dessert.  Cheers!" Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, authors of over seventeen cookbooks, including Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter "Finally, someone has solved that age-old riddle: you can indeed have your cake and drink it, too. Lucy Baker’s concoctions are the perfect brew—sweet, spirited, and downright fun. Our only warning: she doesn’t include a recipe for aspirin."Pichet Ong, author of The Sweet Spot “Of the many baking cookbooks in my stack, this one definitely takes the cake. The concept is utterly original, filled with irresistible photos, and inspiring recipes that will surely incite the inner child—and adult—among us dessert lovers and bakers alike.”
