Celebrate the tenth anniversary of Pusheen—the internet’s favorite cartoon cat—with this colorful and fun collection of recipes that is filled with cookies, cakes, and other delicious treats.
The ultimate cookbook for Pusheen fans and cat lovers alike, Let’s Bake features forty vibrant recipes for sweet treats and savory snacks, inspired by the adorably plump and mischievous kitty. Each recipe is either Pusheen-shaped, or features Pusheen’s face or the faces of her friends so these treats will satisfy your taste buds and tickle your funny bone. With recipes for home chefs of every skill level—from fruit tarts to donuts and beyond—there is something delicious for everyone in Let’s Bake.
Belton, creator of the Pusheen internet cartoon character, and chef Ng celebrate 10 years of the "plump tabby cat" in this adorable and intricate collection of 40 Pusheen-themed baked goods. Catering to bakers at all experience levels, the authors label the difficulty for each recipe, which are each formed into various Pusheen likenesses: some of the easier recipes include Pusheen butter cookies and pastel cheesecake cups, while more difficult ones include Pusheen doughnut chiffon cake and meringue cookies. The steps for each recipe are thorough and oftentimes accompanied with helpful photos (for the Pusheen panna cotta, they show readers how to pipe chilled panna cotta into jars to create Pusheen's ears). There are also Asian-inspired desserts, such as dango (Japanese sweet dumplings served on skewers) and mooncakes. Included are several templates that readers can use to create Pusheen's silhouette for many of the recipes, such as Pusheen-shaped pancakes (they instruct readers to fold and shape a piece of aluminum foil as a pattern) and a roll cake (with the use of a Pusheen template to create a "fabric-print look" on the cake's exterior). This is ideal for Pusheen fans and bakers looking for a challenge.
