About the Author:
Jessica Siskin is the food artist behind Misterkrisp, a business that specializes in customizable crispy rice treats. She lives in New York City.
According to the book, creating these amazing treats is simple. Just mix, shape (with the help of 75 printable templates), decorate, and done!
Thankfully, the book includes super easy instructions AND photos to help those like me that are not overly creative.
Each project is clearly written and the directions are so helpful. Start with the basic crispy rice cereal treats that most of us are familiar with making or eating. The recipe has the essential ingredients and the essential tools or equipment that will be needed as well as suggestions to prevent the most common mistakes or troubles we all would run into like it getting too firm before we are finished shaping.
Depending on your skill set and the amount of time you have to spend on these creations, each recipe is labeled as easy, medium, or advanced.
I can’t wait to dig in and create some of these treats myself. My experience does go past the normal squares and balls of crispy rice cereal treats so this is going to be so much fun.
Don’t have a Kindle? Grab one for yourself. They are so nice to use for reading. I love my Kindle Fire and my little one uses the e-Reader version (just for reading without the added games and internet options).
