I just got this book and I am frustrated with it for 2 reasons. It's a one project book (and I knew that when I ordered it) to learn how to make striped meringue kisses. That involves three things--making the meringue, piping the kisses with colored stripes and baking them. I am a pretty confident baker but I wasn't sure how to color the meringues, specifically what food coloring to use. As meringue is really sensitive to liquids and oils I didn't know intuitively what food coloring product to use and I didn't feel like going through a bunch of trial and error so I did the lazy thing and bought the book.

In the whole book the only thing said about food coloring is this: "Using natural food coloring...". That's the only time it's mentioned. In my house I have liquid, gel, paste and air brush food coloring. The book doesn't tell me which products will work and which ones won't and it doesn't tell me why the authors use natural food coloring. Is it a preference of the authors or will my meringues absolutely deflate if I use a commercial product? I have no more information than I did before I bought the book.

The second reason I am frustrated is the interactive content. There are 9 or 10 interactive videos referenced in the text. Maybe there is more information in the interactive content but it is only accessible through an app called Layar and I don't have a smartphone. The book lists no other way to access the videos. If I wanted to buy a smartphone with an app called Layar on it I would have ordered that but I ordered a book. Please give me more than one way to access your interactive content. So frustrating.

This is such a fun book. I love all the other Meringue options and the creativity of these girls is awesome. I have been making boring Meringues for years and now I make Chocolate filled awesomeness!

I was very excited to get this book. I have read many great reviews and many of the food blogs I read are touting how great this book is. Upon receiving this book. I am completely underwhelmed. First of all, I do not care for how the book is organized. Depending on what recipe you are following, you may have to reference 3 different parts of the book for 1 recipe. They have the main meringue recipe in the front, the variations in in the middle and other staple recipes in the back. It is a pain to have to flip through a book multiple times while trying to put together a recipe. I also do not care for the actual recipes. Many of the recipes are either super simple, such as piping a meringue on top of an M&M? Perhaps a footnote but not a full on recipe. Another large portion of the recipes are made with ingredients I would need to go to a specialty store for, I am not familiar with at all (Gooseberry?)or do not sound appetizing (Pistachio & Rose water pavlova w/ Greek yogurt, honey & figs). My final thought on this book are half of the recipe pictures are ugly. Based on the cover, I as expecting beautiful pictures (and some are) instead many of the pictures of the baked goods look like a hot mess. Not appetizing at all.

This is ok. I think there are better books and, frankly, blogs
