Spiral-bound and filled with more than 110 kid-friendly recipes, this is a perfect cookbook for the budding baking enthusiast. Food Network Magazine is behind this gloriously colorful and picture-perfect book, bringing their signature bold style and practically perfect food-styling to each beautiful spread. We especially loved the look-a-like cake section, where young bakers can attempt fake-out cakes to impress their family and friends! The spiral bind makes the cookbook easy to hold and use on the counter, and there is even a fun and games chapter with food-themed games. A perfect gift that kids (and parents!) will enjoy year-round!

Kids Can Bake

Illustrated by Esther Coombs

Ages 4-11 | 64 Pages

What to expect: Baking, Cookbooks, Desserts

This beautifully illustrated guide to baking is brought to life by illustrator Esther Coombs, creator of Kids Can Cook and many more books for children.

Young cooks can follow the precisely illustrated guide, step-by-step, to make pretzels, mouthwatering focaccia, cake pops, and rainbow cake. Each illustration is super detailed and colorful, and the cover of the book is so mesmerizing it makes your mouth water just to look at it! We appreciated the variety of recipes (Empanadas! Pizza! Cornbread!) and the detailed instructions. Twisting a soft pretzel never looked so easy. A wonderful book for beginning cooks, and those with a few cakes under their chef’s toque, the Kids Can Bake book is a great addition to your cookbook repertoire!
