Not too long ago, the authors (Kathryn Fore & Kimberly Fate) of the "Megan Hearts" books sent me a copy of their new book Megan Hearts Baking. It is a lovely book that inspires young girls to learn confidence and new hobbies. Megan's newest adventure in the book is baking.
"Megan Hearts" is the main character in the book and she is just adorable. She has been invited to a birthday party and has been asked to bring her favorite homemade dessert to share.
In the book Megan learns from her mom important baking skills. For example, starting with a clean kitchen, having all the necessary ingredients, measuring properly (even a little math is included) and patience.
This book would be a fantastic gift for any little girl. In honor of such a wonderful book that promotes hobbies, creativity, and a little math. I have baked the red velvet cupcakes that were featured in the book.
The cupcakes were a smash! If you are interested in the book or the recipe you can leave me a comment. That's right, the authors have been kind enough to send me a copy to give away.
I will announce the winner of the book next Friday (December 19, 2008) and will promptly send it out to the winner. (Hopefully in time for Christmas.)
If you must have the book now ...you can purchase one at Megan's Hearts Family or from Amazon.
