Thank you for the amazing 8 years here at A Baked Creation, we can't thank you enough for the memories! But we've decided to move over to a new site - Sincerely, Syl. Please join us there for future posts on all the things you loved here!



Since we are two, the format of our book and product reviews are a little bit different! Usually, we write in the form of a conversation with the H: being "he said" or "Howard" and the S: being "she said" aka "Sylvia." We hope you enjoy our banter as we review products!

If the books were provided from the publisher, we will mention it in the review.
