Get Cooking! Sweet Stuff gives you seven mouth-watering, sweet-treat recipes, from delicious fruity meringues to easy-to-make refrigerator cake. Covering the importance of preparation, kitchen safety and hygiene, Get Cooking! Sweet Stuff also highlights the parts of every recipe where children must take extra care or should use an adult's assistance.
Why does chocolate melt?
Why do you sift flour?
Why do egg whites become stiff when you beat them?
But there's more to this than just the recipes! Usually when faced with instructions, children (and many adults!) ask, "Why must I?" Here, we encourage such questions, and explain why the action forms an important part of the cooking process: sift the flour to get lumps out and air in and you'll get a smoother, lighter cake.
So get inspired, get the answers and Get Cooking! Sweet Stuff.
