Not exactly what I thought it was going to be.
I really thought this book would spend more time on how to actually make the Hello Kitty design part & add it to pies, cakes, etc. you are baking. It covers a little bit of that, but not as much as I hoped it would.
Instead it is a recipe book. It starts with "key ingredients" & "baking equipment" then "decorating equipment".
The first recipe is for "Hello Kitty Sugar Icing Cookies with Royal Icing."
It gives instructions for how to decorate, but one of the instructions says to use "Cookie cutters to cut out shapes".
Which means basically you buy Hello kitty cookie cutters, use the recipe & instructions for frosting the cookies.
There are other recipes, then near the end of the book, it gives instructions on "piping, rope borders" "shell borders" "basket weave design". Also toward the end of the book (nicest thing in my opinion) is that there are some "Hello Kitty" templates (including keroppi, my melody, badtz-maru, hello kitty, hello kitty's bow & my personal favorite... Chococat.).
Mainly it looks like those would be useful for the brownie recipe where confectioners sugar is used with a template to put an image of hello kitty on the brownies.
There is also baking math for converting American measurements & metric back & forth.
On the bottom of most every page there are tips to use when making items.
It's not a large book but it is not tiny either.
Here at AMAZON I did pay less than the cover price of $14.95 US / $16.95 CAN.
I love Hello Kitty, but the cover price seems to be too much in my personal opinion. Had I have spent that much, I would have sent it back for a refund.
I feel $10 is an appropriate price for this book & what it is.
Since I can not give 3.5 stars like I want, and considering I paid about half of the US cover price I will give it four stars.
