Synopses & Reviews
Remember the nut-covered, pink-colored cheese balls served at grandmaand#8217;s house for the holidays? Well, these are not your grandmaand#8217;s cheese balls. Updated for contemporary tastes, Michelle Buffardiand#8217;s cheese balls come in both savory and sweet flavors, like cheddar, blue cheese, and Buffalo wing sauce, or Bing cherry, rum, and pecan. And cheese balls are just part of the story. Many of the recipes, photographed in gorgeous full color, are in adorable shapes for all kinds of occasions, such as an Easter egg, Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas ornament, or a football for a Super Bowl party. Other designs are just plain fun, like the Nacho Cat, a Wise and Cheesy Owl, or one that looks like a pizza fresh from the oven. There is so much interest in bringing old-fashioned foods back into style, and this is no exception. Perfect for food lovers with crafty flair or anyone who loves to entertain, this book, with more thanand#160;fifty inventive recipes and designs, is sure to be turned to again and again.

The first cookbook to bring cheese balls back into style — with contemporary flavor combinations and adorable designs too
Hello, Cupcake! turned a nation into millions of inspired cupcake artists and launched an international craze. Now the cupcake couple who started it all returns, with projects that are more hilarious, more spectacular, more awe-inspiring and even easier than ever.
But they don't stop at cupcakes. Cookies, pound cakes, pie dough, cheesecakes, bar cookies, Jell-O: no store-bought sweet treat is safe from their ingenuity and word play. There's something for everybody in this book, and every single item you need can be found in the neighborhood supermarket or convenience store.
Playing with your food has never been so contagious.
Witty, one-of-a-kind, imaginative cupcake designs using candies from the local convenience store, no baking skills or fancy pastry equipment required. Spotting the familiar items in the hundreds of brilliant photos is at least half the fun.
