50+ killer cakes, cookies, and candies for your exes and enemies. Dumped by your beefcake boyfriend? BFF steal your one-and-only? Lab partner a more-than-periodic no-show? Don’t take these battles online. (Seriously, don’t do that, okay?). Get out your heaviest rolling pins, sharpest cleavers, and most blistering torches, and kill your enemies and exes . . . with kindness. That’s right – bake that loser ex a pan of Go Fudge Yourself. Gift your former friend a You’re the Devil Cake. And give that annoying admirer a Donut Call Me Again. Let them taste your over-them happiness and see what comes next . . . Pastry chef and tattoo artist Heather Kim serves up sinfully delicious recipes and bittersweet advice.

I received an e-arc copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I thought this cookbook was pretty clever and super cool. The recipes and pictures all look amazing, the author is funny and witty (most of the recipe titles are puns), and all the graphics/illustrations were really well done. I actually want to buy a physical copy at some point. Each recipe is well explained, and has a difficulty rating and funny commentary on the instructions. If you like baking, this is full of great looking recipes and is fun on top of that. Its pretty unique, and I really liked it.
