Let's Make Whoopies with Sophie Gray!
This book is set to be the must-have book on these fun little cakes. Thought to have originated in the Amish communities of America (the farmers would open their lunch boxes to cries of 'Whoopie!' when they saw that their wives had included them as treats) they are now setting a trend in cities like New York and London and are set to take over the rest of the UK! Sophie's book includes 70 whoopie recipes from classics like a mini Victoria sponge, to a whole range of chocolate and fruit-based whoopies and sections on celebration and wacky whoopies too.
Perfect for birthday parties and get-togethers - your guests will fall in love with whoopies! Complete with all the fillings and frostings you need to make these adorable cakes, Sophie Gray has also included 30 delicious cupcakes in Let's Make Whoopies, including her award-winning lemon drizzle cupcake.
'One million per cent delicious. Sophie's whoopies have the X-factor!' Simon Cowell
'Sophie instils pure passion into everything she produces. She is a real domestic goddess!' Richard Bertinet, French master baker
Sophie Gray began cooking at school for 6th form parties, and at university she went on to prepare fabulous dinners for parties of twenty or more guests. After graduating, she conceived the idea for Model Catering, using her model friends to serve the food at events for the film, music and property industries. In 2009 she also set up the Crazy Baker bakery, which delivers to London restaurants and cafes. Sophie lives in London.

Ruby Tandoh’s new book brings us over 170 recipes – sweet and savoury – for every day, every budget, every taste, in a cookbook that puts your appetite first.
Organised by ingredient, Flavour helps you to follow your cravings, or whatever you have in the fridge, to a recipe. Creative, approachable and inspiring, this is cooking that, while focusing on practicality and affordability, leaves you free to go wherever your appetite takes you. It is a celebration of the joy of cooking and eating.
Ruby encourages us to look at the best ways to cook each ingredient; when it’s in season, and which flavours pair well with it. With this thoughtful approach, every ingredient has space to shine; storecupboard staples inspire as much attention as a cut of meat and a sprig of thyme takes centre stage baked into soft teatime cakes. These are recipes that feel good to make, eat and share, and each plate of food is assembled with care and balance.
Including Hot and Sour Lentil Soup, Ghanaian Groundnut Chicken Stew, Glazed Blueberry Fritter Doughnuts, Mystic Pizza and Carrot and Feta Bites with Lime Yoghurt, this is a cookbook that focuses above all on flavour and freedom – to eat what you love.
Susan Calman is the least relaxed person she knows. She has no down-time, no hobbies (unless you count dressing up your cats in silly outfits) and her idea of relaxation is to play Assassin's Creed, an hour into which she is in a murderous rage with sky high blood pressure.
Her wife had to threaten to divorce her to make her go on holiday, and she's been told by the same long-suffering wife that unless she finds a way to switch off, and soon, she's going to be unbearable.
Susan decided her best bet was to try to immerse herself in the pursuits that her friends find relaxing, to find her inner zen and outer tranquillity.
In the first series of this show she attempted to ditch the old Susan Calman and attempted to find the new 'Susan Calm', by watching cricket with Andy Zaltzman; going hillwalking with Muriel Gray; visiting an art gallery with Phill Jupitus and taking a spontaneous holiday with John Finnemore. She enjoyed these pursuits, but all too soon found herself slipping back into her old ways. So she tried again in Series 2, which involved learning about gardening with Val McDermid, going to a music festival with Robin Ince, trying her hand at baking with the Great British Bake Off's Selasi Gbormittah, and having a go at birdwatching with Emma Kennedy.
Keep Calman Carry On is a stand-up show in front of a live audience, in which Susan reports on how successful she's been - both at relaxing and at the pursuit itself - as well as playing in and discussing a handful of illustrative clips from her efforts. It's an attempt to find out how people find solace or sanctuary in these worlds, and how Susan can negotiate her own place in them.
