Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you are like me, on a diet, and know that the many sugary treats around Halloween time are going to be a bit of a temptation, fear not. A healthy and - more importantly - absolutely delicious alternative has arrived in the form of a little recipe book, entitled Spooktacular Gluten-Free Halloween Desserts, authored by Manasi Fragoso, Kanta Barrios and Vidura Barrios. You may have heard of their awesome Facebook page, I Love Halloween, which you must "like" if you are obsessed with all things related to All Hallow's Eve. The book offers several recipes for cakes and cupcakes, cookies, and other confections. In these recipes, you will replace flour with quinoa, millet, almond meal, and coconut. In many instances, sugar will be replaced with coconut sugar. Other organic ingredients are encouraged. The recipes within are fun and easy to make, and they include Witch and Zombie Fingers - which are shortbread cookies that look exactly like, well, witch and zombie fingers - Zombie sugar cookies, Evil Pumpkins, Frankenstein Cake, and Wicked Witches cupcakes. The Ghosts and Pumpkins cupcakes are particularly adorable, and look scrumptious enough. The Bewitched Pumpkin Pie and One Eyed Monster candy apples are also fun! All in all, this book is well worth purchasing. It is one of the most inventive recipe books that I have ever come across. It is available on Amazon.com. You should buy one as soon as possible. Many wonderful Halloween memories are to be had as a result of this book!" - Steven Renkovish, Examiner.com

"As the author of a middle-grade Halloween book, a long-time Pilates and Spinning instructor, and an avid baking fan, I've hit trifecta gold with Spooktacular Gluten-free Halloween Desserts. The Barrios/Fragoso team blends the perfect amount of creativity and instruction to create recipes that are healthy, spooky, delicious delights. They also show you that with just a few small steps, those processed sugar-addled desserts can easily be transformed into simple but ghoulishly fun Halloween treats without the residual guilt--being healthy doesn't have to be complicated. Can Halloween get more Spooktacular? I think not."
- Kristin Riddick, author of Kat McGuee and the Halloween Costume Caper

"I've never seen such glittery, glamorous or terrifying desserts before--except in my nightmares. I'm especially fond of the Wicked Witches cupcakes--carrot with a witch's legs jutting from a mound of icing--and the Day of the Dead Catrinas & Calaveras cookies gorgeous enough to hang next to your favorite silver anatomical heart. I'd be charmed even without knowing how every recipe in this book is made gluten-free, dairy-free and with the most healthful ingredients. Millet flour and raw coconut oil for the zombie finger shortbread cookie? With these guilt-free desserts, you can save your terror for the undead!"
- Carolyn Turgeon, bestselling author of Mermaid and The Fairest of Them All: A Novel

I got the paperback version and it is a lovely, glossy book. The recipes are very easy to follow and for recipes that have more complicated decorating steps there are pictures that show you exactly what to do. I myself am not gluten free so I am not familiar with flour substitutions etc. Now I feel confident about my gluten free cake and cookie baking, mostly because everyone loves what I've made from the book. Lastly, the cake and cookie recipes are great to have for everyday baking. Thanks for a great book.

This is a wonderfully fun cook book! I bought this book recently as I am new to baking and I was really curious about alternatives to wheat, flour and refined sugars. I found the steps easy to follow and my treats turned out delicious. It happened that one of my neighbors called over the evening I was just finished baking and she was smiling at the scary characters even before tasting them.
I work with adults with learning disabilities many of whom are diabetics or gluten intolerant. I plan on taking this book to work in the lead up to Halloween so we can bake together and have fun party food. Perfect for families too.
