I am so excited to offer this giveaway to you today! It’s for (easily) one of the most gorgeous cookbooks I’ve ever seen, and it happens to be authored by one of my good friends, Glory Albin of the ever-popular blog, Glorious Treats! Glory and I met last year and realized we lived super close to one another. She is as every bit as sweet in person as she is online, and her homemade treats, cookies and confections are always stunningly gorgeous and TASTY, too!
Glorious Layered Desserts is a modern take on traditional trifles. Glory has single-handedly mixed and matched ingredients and flavor combinations to create truly unique, gorgeous and delicious layered desserts for any occasion! The first half of the book consists of the one-of-a-kind layered dessert recipes — things like Nutella and Banana Trifles, Cookies & Cream Cheesecake, and Brownie Strawberry Shortcake, to name a few — and the back of the book features the “Essential Recipes”, the from-scratch base recipes for all of these fantastic desserts, like her Creamy No-Bake Cheesecake, Chocolate Mousse & Vanilla Pastry Cream. These scratch-made essential recipes will help act as your building blocks to creating her stunningly beautiful, seriously scrumptious desserts.
A lot of the recipes can be made in under an hour, and a good handful of them have sugar free, gluten free & egg-free options as well. My favorite part of the book (besides the insanely droolworthy recipes)? I LOVE that each recipe (even the Essential Recipes!) has a beautiful color photo. When I’m browsing through cookbooks, sometimes I’ll find a recipe that sounds awesome but it is hard to picture it in my head — either how it would look execution-wise, or finished-product-wise. Glory makes staging and set-up easy with clear photos that show you exactly how to layer and display each tempting treat.
So if YOU would like to win your very own signed copy of Glory’s new cookbook, Glorious Layered Desserts, just answer me this question in the comments section: what is your favorite flavor of pudding/mousse? Chocolate? Coconut? Classic vanilla? I want to know! One comment per person, please — I’ll select a winner randomly on 4/19 and notify them as soon as possible.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on these gorgeous photos of some of Glory’s tastiest layered treats from her book!
Have a scrumptious day!
I was generously provided with a copy of Glory’s book to review for this post, as well as a book to give away to one lucky reader. I was not compensated for my time or opinion, and all opinions are 100% my own.
