If you are “crazy for cupcakes,” or if you think “candy is dandy,” then this novelty book is going to delight you. The book is literally stuffed with recipes, craft projects, quizzes, posters, art projects, and more, and everything has a decidedly sugary and sweet flavor.

The recipes include chocolate cakes that are cooked in mugs, marshmallow treats, fruit sushi, and a berry smoothie.

There are pages and pages of tear-outs to use in craft projects, and others that can be used the moment they are separated from the pages, such as bookmarks and calendar pages.

If you have friends who are sweet stuff fans, then you will love this book because it contains lots of games and activities that you can share with them.

Stickers and candylicious papers included in the book can be used to decorate cards, crafts, scrapbooks, and school folders.

This title would make a great gift for a girl who has a sweet tooth and who likes to celebrate it.
