The Gingerbread Book: 50 Spiced Bakes, Houses, Cookies, Desserts and More (Hardcover)
Gingerbread is beloved the world over, its very smell and taste signaling that the holidays are here.
The Book Of Gingerbread conjures up inspiring recipes for cakes and bakes, cookies, desserts, drinks, and gingerbread houses. From everyday bakes like Maple and Ginger cupcakes, Sticky Toffee Gingerbread Pudding, and Ginger Spiced Banana Bread, to spooky creations such as Ginger Pumpkin Pie-thon, Baba Yaga's Hut, and a terrifying Gingerbread Demogorgon, Helena Garcia's inventive recipes take gingerbread flavors to new heights.
And what could be more festive than Gingerbread Trifle, Traditional Gingerbread Men (well, sort of), and a Gingerbread Pub dressed up for Christmas, all washed down with a warming Gingerbread Latte or (for the grown-ups) Gingerbread Eggnog.
Featuring templates for the gingerbread houses and a beautiful photo for every recipe, The Book of Gingerbread will brighten up even the darkest evenings—and give you a tingle in your toes.
About the Author
Helena Garcia was inspired by her first experience of Halloween whilst living in Las Vegas as a teenager. On her return to Europe she researched the holiday’s origins and quickly became hooked on all things Celtic, gothic and quirky, a passion that infused her bakes when she competed in the Great British Baking Show 2019, with her eccentric style and fun-loving personality making her an exceptionally popular contestant. Having run a beautiful Victorian apothecary in Leeds, Helena infuses her stylish, spooky approach into everything she creates, including the sell-out merchandise available on her website. She is the author of Introduction to Witchery (2017), The Wicked Baker (2020), The Witch-Crafting Handbook (2021), and My Mummy is a Witch (2023).
