Wallace & Gromit - A Matter of Loaf and Death - Baker's Dozen Cook Book
Page 18 

£6.99 Published by Egmont

This bakery cook book for the kids invites you to follow in the footsteps of Wallace & Gromit in their latest film, A Matter of Loaf and Death, in which they run a bakery. Full of practicality, it has wipe-clean pages for those messy flour spillages, as well as a pen to mark off the ingredients used, so you don't accidentally put two lots of flour in and no butter.

The ring-bound book folds out as a stand-up and, on the inside front cover, is a list of equipment needed for the recipes. There is also child-friendly information about what equipment to leave to the adults, as well as tips on safety in the bakery. The baker's dozen book contains 13 recipes - for obvious reasons - including: Banana Bread, Flipping Pancakes, Sweet 'n' Cheesy Strawberry Cheesecake, Shortbread Biscuits and Bouncy Blueberry Muffins. There is also a note by each recipe for steps that require the watchful eyes of an adult. The last page is dedicated to Wallace & Gromit's Cookery Corner, which gives some simple technical tips such as abbreviations for measurements.

This is a must for encouraging children to bake, whether you are a baker, a parent or both.
