When it comes to baking these are some of my favorite books and this is where I get about 90% of my inspiration.
Usually what I do when I put up a recipe on the blog what I do is that I look thru some of my books (or go on the internet) for nice recipes and then I put my own little spin on things, add or take away ingredients or play with the quantities of the ingredients.
If I use a recipe that I haven't modified in any way I always write where I got it.
The newest addition to the pastry book family is ''Sweet!'' by Roy Fares and it seems like great book! He has some really fun ideas and delicious recipes that I can't wait to try out!
I highly recomend you to buy it if you like baking!
