Tiffany Jenkins SAYS:

Baking has become a weekly ritual in my home that draws us all closer together. We are a family of 6 and making things unify us! This book would allow us to spend more time together while learning how to create fun and whimsical treats that we can all eat! I really like the fact that it is geared towards children, which is definitely a plus and would also be great addition to our collection of cookbooks!
