Cookbook Corner: Sweet CHIC – Stylish Treats to Dress Up for Any Occasion

Rachel Schifter Thebault, owner and head confectioner at Tribeca Treats has created Sweet CHIC- Stylish Treats to Dress Up for Any Occasion. Conceptually, the book is about how to take the basic recipe and accessorize it. The concept is best addressed in Sweet CHIC’s forward by fashion legend, Isaac Mizrahi who says “Style is all about inspiration. When you accessorize an outfit in the right way, it makes you feel great. The idea of a dessert book that shows you the perfect way to add designer details to classic
confections is truly inspired.”

A sweet book of recipes that are cleverly broken up into fashion categories like a Devil’s Food Cake that is considered the little black dress, Caramels and Fleur de Sel Chocolate Covered Caramels as the “It” bag, Caramel Buttercream Icing as the ruffled blouse and Tempered Chocolate as the Stiletto heels. That is the outfit created when I baked Ms Thebault’s Sweet and Salty Cake. Probably one of the few but more involved sweet treats in the book.
