Review – I never had an Easy Bake Oven as a child but I had always wanted one. As soon as my daughters were old enough I made sure they had an Easy Bake Oven. Light bulb Baking covers the history of the Easy Bake Oven and it was extremely interesting. I have read the book from front to back four times, and periodically pick it up just to flip through it. It shares classic recipes and pictures of each model.
The book is sitting on my coffee table and every single person who has come in my home has picked it up and flipped through it. It’s a fun interesting read for anyone who collects toys or loves toys.
Light Bulb baking is the PERFECT Christmas Gift for the person who has everything!
