My latest "must-haves" are all about baking. I want to learn more about how to bake properly, including different types of pastries, cakes etc, and learn all the correct techniques. Mastering the Art of Baking is the perfect book to start with. The first volume in a new Murdoch Books series, boasts step by step guides to a range of recipes, information about storing food, equipment and utensil advice and much more. This will definitely appear in my cookbook cupboard soon.

UPDATE: I purchased this book last week and can't wait to fill my blog with luscious delights from it's pages.
The next book I have been eyeing off for a long time, every since I had high tea at their flagship store in Surry Hills, is from Sparkle Cupcakery. The high tea, which I thoroughly enjoyed with my Mum one Saturday morning, was a combination of champagne, finger sandwiches, macarons, and our choice of cupcakes. It was a great opportunity to catch up over some luscious delights. The cookbook is filled with cupcake recipes for men, women and your favourite pooch. Sparkle Cupcakes is another "must-have", even just to get their decorating tips.
Sparkle Cupcakes is available in Sparkle Cupcakery's stores, at all good bookstores, and online here and here
Are there any must have cookbooks on your list, or ones you refer to constantly when cooking?
