Alix Carey’s The Mermaid Cookbook is a fun and colourful cookbook filled with clearly detailed mermaid-inspired recipes. While the book features both easy and difficult recipes, beginners should approach with caution because many of the recipes have multiple detailed steps, involve specialty ingredients and require some baking skills.

I absolutely love themed cookbooks and I really enjoyed this one! The book begins with a fun “What is your Mermaid Name?” The book itself is bright, colourful and w

From the publisher, as I do not regurgitate the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it.

The Mermaid Cookbook is a fun and colorful cookbook for anyone who wishes they could live under the sea. There is a wide range of recipes, from traditional cupcakes and cakes, to cookies, drinks, and other desserts. Some of them look best suited to a fun party perhaps for a child, while others, like the Mermaid's Purse Mirror Glaze Cake and the Jam Clams are quite elegant. Recipe difficulty is noted at the top of each recipe, and pictures of each recipe are featured, as well as some pictures sho ...more

ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Absolutely perfect baking book for anyone who loves anything under the sea. At first I was worried this would be more for kids but the complexity and fun of the designs make it great for advanced bakers as well(and it definitely can be fun for kids too). I loved the photography in it as well, my mouth is watering just looking at all these delicacies!

I really loved this book. Pictures are pleasing to the eye. Instructions are clear. I cannot wait to try some of these recipes at my daughter's party! Also, know a lot of friends that are doing Mermaid Themed Parties as well, so this will come in handy a lot!

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I just adore mermaids, so I was very eager to try out a cooking book full of Mermaid stuff. Sadly, I am a bit disappointed.

Quite a few things didn’t have to do with mermaids, or were just called mermaid, but seeing the mermaid wasn’t so easy. I am guessing some just had the colour scheme going on to show it was mermaid-esque. There were several more under the sea stuff (sharks/coral/more coral/stars), that sure, would fit with t

I went into reading this book knowing that it probably wouldn't work for our family, but hoping that it would. We are a gluten free family and I tend towards healthy, natural recipes. That said, there was a wonderful unicorn themed cookbook that I read last year that used natural ingredients to make all kinds of magical looking, colorful treats and it was gluten free and even too healthy for my tastes, so I had hopes. Also, I'm pretty good at adapting recipes so I figured I could convert some re ...more

The Mermaid Cookbook is sweet, cute, and colourful. Initially while I was flipping through the recipes, I found my mouth watering – so many of these recipes just look sooo good!

I will admit I do have a weakness for cute food, and The Mermaid Cookbook delivers. The recipes included are ones that try to emulate and encapsulate mermaids – so expect a lot of greens, blues, and shells. The Mermaid Cookbook is broken up

This review is brought to you by Pearl Tide Dancer™ who will be making seaweed coconut bars as soon as possible

I am in love with themed cookbooks and this is one of the better ones! Unicorns and mermaids are of course very trendy right now (with my daughters on team unicorn, and me on team mermaid) and this book has dozens and dozens of recipes that girls of ALL ages will love. I found the recipes very straightforward and feel like I could make most of these items with relative ease. A few do r

The Mermaid Cookbook by Alix Carey is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late April.

Recipes for desserts, sweets, breakfast items, and drinks with swirly colors, a frequent use of shell graphics, and the recipes broken down into components (i.e. a pastel or mirror-glazed frosting, cake, and decoration), usually amounting to a dozen items, and being either vanilla or fruity flavored (every so often, there's a dark chocolate). My favorite recipes were for raspberry jam-filled spritz cookies (ak

I saw this book and knew immediately that I had to read and review it. I love novelty recipe books like this and needless to say that I was charmed since the very first recipe!

Honestly all of the recipes in this book looked so yummy and were so well put together that it just gave me the urge to cook them all (too bad I’m trying to lose weight RIP). The foods were all really trendy and with the times and I loved every moment of it.

This book is full of cute designs and ideas for breakfast, drinks, and sweets for every day or for a party. The recipes are all easy to follow and would be great for adults or families to make. I know my daughter and I are going to have a great time making these things together.

I voluntarily read and received a free ARC copy of this title through NetGalley in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The Mermaid Cookbook has whimsical ideas for Mermaid lovers, but great ideas for beach or pool theme parties. Easy to follow recipes that do not require a culinary degree.

Cakes, cookies, and candy that can be easily accomplished for bake sales, parties, or impress your co-workers. It's a winner.

I did get this from the publisher and NetGalley for an honest review.

This cookbook was adorable. The pictures were beautiful and the directions organized and clear. I loved the breakfast ideas. Will try some of these in the winter when I am missing the beach. Thank you to NetGalley for my copy.

This cookbook is fantastic! The mermaid theme is adorable and I am so excited to make these yummy treats for my daughter! The pictures are gorgeous and the recipes are very detailed and include difficulty levels as well. There are goodies for both a beginner baker and more seasoned ones as well! Definitely give it a try if you have a child who loves mermaids or you love them yourself! Excellent ideas for themed parties!!

This wonderful and very brilliant cookbook with the Mermaid themed recipes is filled with recipes that would delight any child that is in love with mermaids or the sea. With recipes for cakes and cookies and donuts that would make any child's eyes light up with happiness just to be able to have a Hermit Crab Cookie, Stormy Sea Brownies or have a slice of The Ultimate Diving Merma

Thank you Net Galley, Alix Carey, and Andrews McMeel Publishing for allowing me to get a sneak peek and review this amazing children's cookbook! Wonderful theming, full-color photos for every recipe and easy to follow detailed instructions for all, make this cookbook a true winner.

From the mind of Sassy Whisper Wave (YES, this cookbook helps you pick out your own mermaid name!!!!) This cookbook is pretty adorable!

The cover and title are what got me and then once you open it... it’s just an seaworthy explosion!

The recipes look easy to follow and they range from easy to difficult. I also love all of the photos that accompany each recipe because it gives you a look at what you *hope* yours will turn out looking just like 😂. I’m most excited to try the Mermaid Purse Mirror Gl

As a grandmother and aunt of several young ladies who love mermaids, the recipes and themed ideas in this book have been a HUGE hit! We have had many tea parties that have all received a 10+ smiles rating! Alix Carey must have known exactly what would make these young ladies happy. She set up the cookbook top be user friendly and gave so many wonderful pictures that my crew has already planned the next round of mermaid celebrations.

I was a little nervous at first, because the last few unicorn cookbooks I've found have not quite been what I've been looking for, but this book was exactly what I wanted. Each decoration for the food in this book is under the sea related, and I am soooo excited about making the Mermazing Fudge! Great pictures to help you through each one. There are no caloric breakdowns in this one, but it's pretty easy to pick out which ones are super healthy and which ones...are not quite. Everything looks de ...more

This cookbook is definitely every mermaids dream. Especially for those parents planning a Mermaid themed sleepover birthday party. They have everything included from the birthday cake ideas to the morning after breakfast. They have also done a fabulous job breaking the recipes up into different sections, with an easy to use table of contents. As amazing as the recipes are, be prepared thst some of them can take a couple hours from start to finish. There are also a few that call for things to set ...more
