The Carrot Cake Catastrophe Review
Our Parragon Book Buddies book for December was The Carrot Cake Catastrophe by Elizabeth Dale and illustrated by Gemma Raynor. It tells the story of Jenny the Rabbit who with the help of her Grandad bakes a carrot cake for her mother. I was concerned that as there was pink on the front cover, middle man would dismiss the book as being for a girl. However, middle man likes cooking and was keen to give the carrot cake a go!
I was half expecting our carrot cake to turn out as a catastrophe but it was actually really tasty! I particularly liked the recipe at the back of this book. With the rabbit theme it would make a lovely Easter gift instead of an egg. (I am sure there must be Cadbury's cream eggs in the shops by now.)
I was given the book to review as part of the Parragon Book Buddies scheme but the opinions here are my own.
