Nerdy Nummies Cookbook brings back good memories of actually being able to bake delicious AND cute creations! Rosanna Pansino's fun personality in her Youtube channel is combined with her clear instructions in this amazing book. The steps are easy to follow, there are photographs for the main steps, and if all else fails, you have the option of watching the youtube video alongside the reading for some of the chapters. This book is a must for beginners!

If you've watched any of Rosanna Pansino's Nerdy Nummies episodes on YouTube, you know that she has made a name for herself by creating uber cute desserts that showcase the best of geek and popular culture.  Whether it is BB-8 Cake Pops or  Lumpy Space Princess Cheesecake, Ros makes the treats that make geeks and gamers squee.

Now you can checkout Ros' first book, The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook and make creations like UFO Cake pops, Loch Ness Cupcakes and Moon Phase Macarons.

Some of the recipes in the book are simply over the top, but many are accessible enough for everyday baking.  Her instructions are clear and well though out and there are plenty of photographs to provide a visual reference.

I didn't have time to make any of the recipes in the book, but when I do, I'll be making the Periodic Table of Cupcakes (p.54)!

My husband and I have been following Ro on YouTube for a couple years now. She started out with pre-mixed batters, and moved on to her own recipes and baking line. Her show on YouTube is fun to watch! The recipes in this book are easier to make because of the way she describes them.

Some very cute ideas. Some very complicated, other seem doable. A good book to pick up for a kid's birthday party with a tech or gaming theme.
