Rhonda M Petty SAYS:

I have a love for candy, children and cookbooks. I would like to continue the tradition of working together in the kitchen that I shared with my sons by now enjoying kitchen time with my beautiful grand daughter. I have fond memories of my children creating masterpieces in the kitchen, some of the greatest times in my life. I look forward to passing my love of candy making onto the newest members of my family.

I would love this book to use with my 5 year old triplets. They have been baking with me since they were 2 (a dream come true for me!) We love to be in the kitchen together! They would absolutely love the cute ideas in this book. We love to create things in kitchen and share them with family, neighbors, and friends. This would be a fun way to share our creations, kid style! Thank you!
