Sugar Baby: Confections, Candies, Cakes & Other Delicious Recipes for Cooking with Sugar is jam-packed with more than 100 recipes that give sugar a good name. With her sassy and spirited style, Gesine Bullock-Prado not only makes playing with hot sugar fun, but also brings a welcome new voice to the culinary world that is anything but sugary!
Starting with Rock Candy, dubbed by Bullock-Prado "the bad ass of candies," and moving onto a vast spectrum of sweet treats, Sugar Baby demystifies the process of transforming sugar into gorgeous, delectable goodies by integrating stovetop techniques. From marshmallows to macaroons, simple syrup to the intricate Croquembouche Pyramid, the easy-to-master recipes are organized by cooking temperature and sugar concentration, beginning with the Simple Dissolve to Thread Stage (sugar concentration: 80%) and culminating with the Hard Crack Stage and Beyond (sugar concentration: 99%).
Bullock-Prado arms us with all the information we need for our candy adventure: outlining basic equipment, including sidebars on fondant and candy molds; illustrating the difference between corn syrup and sugar; and even showing us how to make maple syrup! Sugar Baby is the ultimate book for anyone interested in taking a delicious detour from traditional baking into the world of stovetop cooking with sugar. Guiding readers step-bystep through the preparation of a fantastic procession of mousses, pralines, fudge, cakes, pastries, and multilayered crepe cakes, this inspired collection of desserts will satisfy even the most demanding sweet tooth—with great style.
