The brilliant Baked Boys have returned! In their fourth book, "Baked Occasions," Lewis and Poliafito prove that every occasion deserves a sweet treat; from the Kentucky Derby to Dolly Parton's birthday, this book has an innovative recipe to celebrate the day.

Quirky, fun, yet still traditional, "Baked Occasions" presents 75 festive recipes (organized by month) along with 65 stunning photographs. True, some of the "holidays" seem a bit of a stretch but the authors' humour and expertise certainly make up for it. A vegan "Hippie Cake" for Earth Day doesn't fall short of delicious and Dolly's Doughnut turns out as a velvety coconut bundt cake with creamy chocolate-coconut filling. The Cheesy Bastille Day Beer Bread perfectly compliments the desserts with cheese baked on both the top AND bottom crusts. Finally, a section devoted to the Twelve Days of Christmas cookie baking presents carefully constructed recipes, each with its own story, including a delectable Gingersnap with Lemon Sugar.

Ideally, each recipe in the book would have its own photograph and the collection would include a few more savoury offerings. The book might also benefit from more in-depth explanations for novice bakers as it seems geared towards those with a moderate to advanced skill level in the kitchen. But overall, "Baked Occasions" provides engaging stories and inspiring recipes. The authors clearly share their experience and impart fun knowledge about an assortment of holidays.
