About the Book:
50+ killer cakes, cookies, and candies for your exes and enemies. Dumped by your beefcake boyfriend? BFF steal your one-and-only? Lab partner a more-than-periodic no-show? Don't take these battles online. (Seriously, don't do that, okay?). Get out your heaviest rolling pins, sharpest cleavers, and most blistering torches, and kill your enemies and exes . . . with kindness. That's right - bake that loser ex a pan of Go Fudge Yourself. Gift your former friend a You're the Devil Cake. And give that annoying admirer a Donut Call Me Again. Let them taste your over-them happiness and see what comes next . . . Pastry chef and tattoo artist Heather Kim serves up sinfully delicious recipes and bittersweet advice.

Notes and Opinions: This was by far the most amazing book I've read about food in a while. OMG, I couldn't put this down and really don't read this book if you are hungry it won't turn out so well.  The titles of the recipes were perfect and fun and they really got a laugh out of my girls.  We can't wait to sit down and make some of these as they sound very good and tasty. We couldn't stop laughing "Don't Try to Butter Me up, Shut your stupid Cake Hole and Stop Texting me you Crepe"

The full-page photos/illustrations made each recipe come to life and you really end up wishing you could just stick your hand into the picture and take it back out.




Go Into This One Knowing: This would be a great book to have fun alone, with family, or just a fun time baking with friends.
