This book is called fantastic eats & how to cook them! I am going to tell you the ones I love the most. They are all in the sweet bit. The Apple Rose Tarts and the Cherry Bakewell Tartlets. The Icy Watermelon Lollies and the Strawberry and Lime Pots. The Monster Crispy Treats and the colour I want them to be is blue. I also like the look of the Orange Butterfly Cakes and the Rainbow Skewers. You should get this book out of the library and make some of the recipes. I will be able to make the monster crispy treats if my mum or dad buys the stuff we will need.
