This third book in the wildly popular Baker's Field Guide Series offers recipes worthy of a year filled with sweet celebrations. Start the new year with Star-Shaped Marshmallows, then try Maple Sugar Leaves for the first day of spring and Molasses Taffy on the Fourth of July. Treat your family and friends to Spiced Pumpkin Pecan Fudge for Thanksgiving and Angel Food Candy for Christmas. There are candies perfect for other celebrations, including weddings, and many of the recipes are so easy that you'll be looking for any occasion to make them. Arranged in chronological order, the candies are all photographed in full color and accompanied by 'field notes and symbols that explain at a glance the type, description, whether it's kid-friendly or especially quick to make, whether the candy stores, freezes, or ships well, and much more. The book also lays flat on the counter when open, making it even more user friendly.
