Sticky Fingers Green Thumb: baked sweets that taste of nature by Hayley McKee is the new inspirational cookbook from one of Melbourne's most unusual and interesting bakers. This is not a bakery you can just visit... her unique custom designed cakes are made with Australian native ingredients, vegetables, homegrown herbs and edible flowers.
The book contains almost sixty recipes that celebrate vegetables, herbs and edible flowers in cakes and other sweet snacks. Recipes to get you inspired include Spiced Parsnip & Willow Blossom cake; Porcini Caramel & Chestnut cake; Apple Cider and Zucchini muffins; Lavender Bay Leaf shortbread; Sweet Pea & Green Tea cake; Hibiscus brownies; and Lemon Myrtle & Fennel Seed honey cake. We guarantee you will be thinking about your garden produce in a whole new way.
Broken into five chapters, such as Real Baking Know-how, Vegetables in Baked Desserts, and Edible Flowers & Herbs in Baked Desserts, each recipe includes a beginner gardening tip or trick so you can grow the produce you bake with. This is baking as it should be – soulful, earthy and seasonal, in Hayley's signature, delicious style.
We'll be serving up treats from this gorgeous book whilst chatting to Hayley about her garden, her designs and her inspirational cakes. Whether you are looking for inspiration for a special occasion or you just love good cake, this will be an event not to miss.
Please join us for an intimate chat with Hayley McKee as we explore the creation of this beautiful book.
