Amirah Kassem preaches the power of sprinkles in her wildly creative first book. Inspired by the pinatas of her childhood, Kassem sought to create a cake that burst with sprinkles and candy when she cut into it. Four years later, her food-based installations have been exhibited everywhere from private settings at the Whitney Museum to 64-foot edible hallways at the Brooklyn Museum; while her fondant-free creations have also caught the attention of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and every fashion party in New York City.

Revealing the secret to her sprinkle explosion genius for the first time ever, Kassem helps readers unlock their creativity in the kitchen with 35 different cakes. With photography, illustrations, and a design to capture the glittery rainbow effervescence of both the Flour Shop and Kassem, The Power of Sprinkles will be the spring's sweetest book.

Review quote

"This is such a fun book, cheeky and cheerful and fully embracing the creative impulse that prompts a person to add pounds of sprinkles to a bake. Amireh Kassem loves rainbow cakes, those six tiered, vanilla sponge, multicoloured extravaganzas, but in The Power Of Sprinkles she has added in a whole extra dimension of razzamatazz with sprinkles poured into the centre of the layers. Use this terrific template to create spooky little monsters, a unicorn cake with an ice-cream cone horn and a giant doughnut." -- S Magazine - Sunday Express "This book is colourful and unique and with sprinkles galore, it certainly lives up to its title. There is a whole range of recipes, all with a signature sweet style and really delicious flavours! The accompanying pictures are bright and vibrant and the recipes are very easy to follow." -- Cake Masters "Kassem's first cookbook is stylish and incredibly colorful, with cake recipes practically made for Instagram." -- Food & Wine "... a sprinkling of flavour and fun in the kitchen" -- The Sunday Post
