Harlequin EnterprisesMeaghan Mountford had never held a frosting bag when she applied for what she thought would be a temporary job at a local bakery.  But this writer-turned-decorator discovered a talent, and soon became one of Washington D.C.'s most sought after cookie decorators, counting among her clients top corporations, sports teams and celebrities from coast to coast.

Her wonderfully creative cookies have since been featured in the New York Times, Modern Bride and on the Today show and her new book, Sugarlicious: 50 Cute and Clever Treats for Every Occasion, makes it easy for anyone to create these adorable treats at home.  Keep reading to learn more!

I reviewed Sugarlicious by Meaghan Mountford from Harlequin Enterprises, which retails for $17.95, but is currently on sale for $11.47 with FREE SHIPPING.


Sugarlicious by Meaghan Mountford
With 50 easy-to-follow recipes for any party or occasion, Mountford shows readers how to transform ordinary cookies, cupcakes, marshmallows and cake pops into sumptuous works of art.  She shows how with just a dab of bright icing and a sprinkle of color, you can create "Conversation Heart Cupcakes" for Valentine's Day, "Bunny Cookie Pops" for Easter, or "Candy Clay Crayons Treat" for the birthday girl or boy.

And it's not just cakes and cookies.  See how you can transform marshmallows into "Scary Zombies for Halloween" or "Fruit and Veggie Marshmallow Kebabs" for summer BBQs.

Not sure how to use a piping bag?  A little intimidated by fondant?  Does making petit fours sound impossible?  No problem.  Mountford divulges her tricks of the trade for time-saving shortcuts, her tried and true recipes (all of which are kid-tested and approved), and her DIY techniques that serve as a guide to novices and seasoned bakers/crafters alike.

 

Fully illustrated with over 50 gorgeous full-color photographs, Sugarlicious also includes instructions for creating these amazing treats with minimum fuss, cost or effort and gives home bakers the techniques to turn their kitchen into a studio for Sugarlicious works of art all year long!

Product Review 4 Stars
Disclosure:  I received a copy of Sugarlicious by Meaghan Mountford from Harlequin Enterprises in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective. 
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
