Featuring a foreword by Gary Rhodes, this is a book full of delicious, simple cake recipes that are much kinder to teeth!

Free from regular sugar, the cakes are made with xylitol, also known as birch sugar. Xylitol is a natural substance made from birch bark which has a cariostatic effect that actively inhibits tooth decay. Written in consultation with a qualified dentist, this book is ideal for those baking for (and with) young children; and for anyone who loves cakes and baking but is concerned about caring for their teeth. Light-hearted and fun, yet extremely practical, this little volume is packed full of recipes. They range from expected old favourites such as Fairy Cakes and Butterfly Cakes to the more unusual Marigold Buns, Scented Geranium Cakes, and Courgette Cakes. There are also plenty of tips from the Tooth Fairy on tooth care and even an 'Ask the Tooth Fairy' section which covers intriguing questions such as 'what do the fairies do with all those teeth?'
