On 18th November 2010, I finally made one of my wish come true, which I bought myself my first baking book. The book called Biscuiteers Book of Iced Biscuits by Harriet Hastings & Sarah Moore. The cover of the book already made me more eager to spend my first semester holiday break with baking activities. The cover of the book which mostly covered with brown color hard paper were illustrates with image of love shape biscuit with pink color icing which added with white polka dot, on the top of it is the title of the book itself. To buy the book, it is not actually my first plan when I agreed to hang out with my close friends, Chacha & Muddy. We were actually just hanging out, window shopping, have a chat and satisfied our stomach. At first, it was Muddy who wants to walk in to
MPH bookstore to have a look around. Well, being me who walk in to the bookstore, of course first thing that come up in my mind was Sophie Kinsella/ Madeleine Wickham novels and not forget to must-stop-by at Cooking & Baking section. Thus, of course that was what happened that made me end up grabbing a book to the cashier counter. The book cost me RM43 which I think it is affordable enough for a baking book. Not forget to mention that I’m satisfied enough with the book and will not regret it since one of my favorite chef, Nigella Lawson is one of the commenters of the book. At the front cover there is words, 'These I Love You inscribed cookies…they are just too darling'- Nigella Lawson Ohmaigawdd! Straightway I think I’m more loveee to have that book than anyone else on that time! lol Before I finally made my mind to pick up the book, it is actually between the book and another. Another book is about bakes, means about cakes, cupcakes and anything that need bakes. I chose to put back the book to the rack because on that time I’m in the mood of making biscuits & decorate it which if I succeed I might want to sell it - but apparently now that I didn't since time is little too short for me.
Well, after looking through the book just in glance every page at 6 pm after Muddy sent me back home, I found that the book is very interesting with many pictures from the start on how to make the dough, finish up with how to package it. The content is very organized and useful, it includes the rules of biscuits making which the-must-need-to-know for the newcomer to this Biscuits World, and of course it will not complete if the biscuiteers book without the recipes. The book also will direct you on how to prepare & color icing correctly. It also will give you full ideas on how to be creative as you can even on that tiny surface of biscuits. So, I’m proud to say that I have my first baking book –bought myself- which I satisfied it the most.
