Kids will find baking inspiration in every page of Food Network Magazine’s newest cookbook. The Big, Fun Kids Baking Book is filled with over 110 recipes for sweet treats, including cupcakes, layer cakes and cookies, perfect for pint-sized bakers (and adults!), no matter their skill level in the kitchen. Here are some of the fun features you and your kiddo can look forward to when you order your copy today.

110+ Sweets and Treats

Your little ones won’t run out of delicious options when they flip through this unique cookbook featuring more than 100 kid-friendly recipes. Not only will they be able to make each and every recipe with little-to-no adult supervision, kids big and small will also learn so much along the way, thanks to the expert tips from Food Network Kitchen scattered throughout the pages. The hardest thing will be choosing which recipe to make first! With six separate sections devoted to beloved desserts — Muffins & Quick Breads, Brownies & Bars, Cookies, Cupcakes, Cakes and Fake-Out Cakes — there’s plenty to choose from (but we vote the Milk & Cookies Cupcakes, pictured above). Your kids will also love the “Choose-Your-Own Adventure” pages, which guide them on how to make their own personalized Whoopie Pies, Banana Breads and more.

Fun Food Trivia

Baking is all about learning, and thanks to the informative and entertaining “Did You Know?” boxes found throughout this cookbook, kids will learn much more beyond how to make the perfect cake. Some fun factoids we can’t stop sharing with our own friends and family: that the earliest written record of lemonade goes all the way back to the year 1000 and the exact cream-to-cookie ratio of an Oreo cookie (hint: It’s not 50/50.) Want to know the answer? Order a copy of the cookbook asap!

Out-Of-This-World Fake-Out Cakes

Whether you call them fake-out cakes or imposter cakes, these impressive creations are sure to earn your kiddo major brownie points with their friends — and then some! You’ll find 11 different fake-out recipes, each accompanied with full-page photography and step-by-step building and decorating instructions. We suggest starting with the life-sized pineapple cake, pictured above — it’s the perfect treat to celebrate the end of summer.

Unique Food Crafts

Blondie Jenga! Jigsaw Puzzle Sugar Cookies! DIY Cupcake Toppers! Those are just some of the hands-on, edible crafts you and your kiddo can tackle together. Try them as a weekend baking project or as a fun after-school activity.

Bonus Food-Themed Activity Pages

Just like a great kids’ menu includes puzzles, so does this book. We've included a fun array of quizzes and activities your little one can focus on while they wait for their Root Beer Bundt Cake to cool down or their Sundae Cupcakes to chill in the refrigerator.
