I have never felt compelled to write a review before but couldn't help it this time. I received this book as a gift and what a delight! The recipes are clearly written, the photography beautiful and the helpful tips are especially appreciated. I have no doubt that even I(a novice at decorating) will be able to pull this off and look like I know what I'm doing. I can't wait to get started!!!

I love, love, love this book! The pictures are so vibrant and adorable, and every recipe I've tried is delicious. Sugarlicious is perfect for a crafty beginner, with all of it's tips and clear instructions, and just as perfect for an ambitious crafty baker that wants a challenge. The designations of "easy," "moderate," or "challenging" help you choose which recipe or craft to take on next.

The tips and shortcuts are really helpful and insightful. I am especially excited to make the Christmas petits fours, since I have been known to spend an obscene amount buying them in the past. The author has such a fresh take and new vision for desserts and treats, every page is a gift!

I love Meaghan's blogs, but to have a hard copy of her beautiful pictures and great ideas in the kitchen is inspiring!

I placed an advance order for this book as soon as I knew it was possible. Meaghan topped her last book by expanding the use of many different materials in novel and whimsical ways. I love her clear writing style, illustrations, photos and supply sources which make is simple to learn new techniques. Best of all, she makes the process fun and engages children in a fresh way. Many of the sweets can be completed quickly within the attention span of little ones. All of the treats are very doable. And the results are amazing! Meaghan makes the sweet crafts very approachable and not at all intimadating. She lures the reader into absolute confidence that they will be able to have fun with the process proud to share what they make. Great gift and party ideas too!

This was a spontaneous purchase for me because I usually check out books from the library first, then make a purchase if I have to have it. But it wouldn't have mattered because I would have bought it anyways! The pictures are beautiful and the instructions are easy to follow. What I really love are the pictured examples that go with the instructions so you can always "see" what you are supposed to be doing. I also really appreciated the list of sources to help me find whatever it is I may ever need when making something sweet. The Decorated Cookie blog is a wonderful source as well and it is my go to site for when I need to look at something wonderful to raise my spirits on a long day. Can't wait for the next book!

"Sugarlicious" is a most comprehensive "how to book" for those of us who would like to create "goodies" for special occasions, for "gifting", or just for fun.

Meaghan Mountford has made the process of being creative so easy by detailing in a "fun" way all the supplies needed; step by step how to do it; the possible road blocks and the techniques to overcome them. This is all presented in photos, illustrations and "down to earth" descriptions of how to.

It is obvious the author has spent many, many hours perfecting the best way to create and decorate sweets in a unique way. "Sugarlicious" is colorful, entertaining and just plain fun -- guaranteed to lead the reader to successful results!

This book has lots of really cute ideas that kids will love. I made the 'licorice heart cookie pops' and they came out very cute. The cookie recipe makes a very soft, delicious cookie and was very simple to work with. The technique of 'flooding' royal icing was new to me and will definitely take some practice but it was explained well in the book, as was the process of using cookie and lollypop sticks. I like the idea of treating these recipes as 'crafts' that you can eat when you're done. I will definitely be making more of them!

I recently received Sugarlicious as a gift and am thrilled!!! Meaghan's instructions are so detailed that it makes decorating so much easier. I tried and tried in the past and couldn't ice a simple cake. Now with Sugarlicious among my cookbooks I can make desserts that make my friends jealous. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Can't wait to see what you write next!

I just love this book and the delicious sweets are easy to make. I usually have a hard time following recipes but Meaghan makes it all so easy. Plus the pictures are adorable. This book is bright and cheery with great ideas and should be in everyones kitchen, even if you don't have kids(as I don't). I hope Meaghan will keep the books coming as I think they are wonderful.

I received this as a gift and it could not be cuter! My kids are already making a list of what I have to try first. I especially love that shortcuts are included so that you can get right to the decorating.
